Hi everyone, I'm Katie the #welcome moderator.
My unofficial title: DEV cheerleader 😊

I want to welcome all of you to the DEV community and let you know that you'll find lots of help and support here for all your coding needs.

Don't hesitate to ask questions or contribute new ideas with your own post.
If you are interested in posting, be sure to read my post:


Hi guys, so I don't need my web blog anymore? I simply can use dev.to, is it ?!


Hi there.
I literally discovered this community today and, but it looks like I like it a lot 😊
I work as IT Manager so programming is not my primary job, but I was always fascinating by the act of coding. I started with BASIC when I was a young boy and never stopped ever since. I slowly moved to more modern languages like VB.net and I recently took interest in PHP and LUA.

I am recently working on a custom MediaWiki installation integrated with WikiBase so I am heavily using LUA to customise the MW functionalities and I learnt PHP in order to contribute to some MW extension and I finally wrote one of mine.

I hope I will make some meaningful contribution to this site, happy coding! πŸ––πŸ»


I just signed up and I want say

hello everybody!

I'm writing from italy.

happy coding


Hi! 🀟
Also new, so welcome


Hello and welcome to Dev.to Community ! πŸ‘‹πŸΌπŸ˜‰


Hello from the Philippines! I just joined this week and published my first post 2 days ago. Been wanting to blog for a long time, but I always made excuses not to do it πŸ™ˆπŸ˜… I guess I had more free time while in quarantine so here I am 😊


Hello everyone, I started reading and writing articles on dev.to a few weeks back and it has been really rewarding so far, a lot of things learned with all the amazing content that people are sharing here.

Also started participating here:


Like Luka below I literally came across this site today. How I missed it is beyond me, but I've often been told my life improve if only I'd participate in it. So there's that. But I've enjoyed the heck out of reading a bunch of stuff today and I think I'll be able to contribute at some point.


Hello everyone!

Currently an IT engineer looking at getting more deep into coding, scripting, machine learning, deep learning, math, and linguistics. Still fairly new at studying math, ML, DL, and linguistics, but you have to start somewhere!


Hey everyone! I am happy to be a part of this community. And this is my first message in the dev.to.


Hey people :)

My name is Ilan, I'm 25, Brazilian/American.
This is my first day here.
I am going to bed right now, and as usual, I read some Google News and.. one of the recommendations was a post regarding JavaScript Async/Await posted by Dev.to, which I am struggling this week.
I'm really thankful because I just loved this website. It's awesome.


Hi! I've been a developer for over 13 years, .Net mainly, but started learning about test automation a couple of years ago. I have a passion for finding other peoples' bugs, just to make younger devs feel miserable like QA engineers made me feel miserable in the past.. :D Nah, just kidding ( :| )
I have been learning and loving cypress for the last 3 o 4 months, and thought to join a devs community in order to share some of the tricks I have learned...


Hi everyone! My name is Dalean Barnett, I am from Jamaica, and I am a backend dev with skills in Python, Django, Azure, and SQL. I have been using dev.to since last year (2019) and I think it is my time to contribute by sharing my knowledge. 😎😊


Hello everyone!
Been reading dev.to for a while, but now it is time to participate. I wished to be a developer since 12 -just wished-, and here I am at 32, in a Bootcamp taking my baby steps in JS & React, and soon backend. I'm a chemist & half-physicist by education but in love with computer SCIENCE as well!
Learning never stops.


Hello everyone! I'm Reshma from India, having had a commerce background I am currently transitioning into tech. I'm hoping that being a part of this community will help me stay motivated and learn more. Have a great day.πŸ˜„


Welcome Reshma! Congrats on your decision to transition-to-tech πŸŽ‰
I also transitioned about 1.5 years ago; I used to be in public health. Let me know however I can support your journey! ❀️


People like you boost my confidence! Thanks alot for your support Arit! ❀️


Hello. I was about half way through Oregon State's post bacc CS degree when my daughter was born 3 years ago. I just applied at a local community college to go back and actually get a degree with the credits I earned through Oregon State.


Hello, I'm Daniel and I work and live security. I used to spend a lot of time on Reddit and felt like dev related community instead would be more fun. So here am I.


Hi everyone! I am a junior developer from Italy, currently attending university in Rome and hoping to complete a Master's Degree in computer engineering by the end of 2020.

I have discovered the DEV community during winter and I have been amazed since. This place is great, not only for content quality, but also because it encourages people to open up, no matter their level or experience or general shy-ness, and this enables to come closer to "stars", or, in general, real people who build the tools on which all of us build other amazing things.
Having academic readings my primary source for learning since I started uni years ago, for the past months i have been reading LOTS of dev blogs daily, starting from this. It even pushed me on starting using my twitter account seriously to reshape my daily news-feed completely by following dev accounts and blogs. I think DEV.to somewhat started all of this - even before the quarantine was a thing here in Italy - and this (rather long) comment is my awkward way to acknowledge it.

So, since I'm here venturing outside my safe zone for the first time in ages (since I was a little kid on some game forum), I think i'll share some details on what I'm actually working during those days:

  • For my last uni exam, i'm building an interactive visualization based on data from a Marvel Universe wiki, which I crawled and refined through lots of python scripts. My goal is to display a timeline of the events of the shared universe between movies, tv shows and comics, highlighting the temporal interactions between the main characters. As I said, i'm using Python and Django to handle data and D3.js for displaying the actual DAG/timeline.

  • For work ( I write technical documentation for my company's product, a low-code development platform) I am focused on building a new website for our docs. We choose to migrate from Wordpress to a static generated site, and now I'm learning Eleventy and avidly scouting existing projects to improve my frontend skills in the meantime.

  • For my thesis, which started this month, i'm collab-ing with my company on developing a client generator for the systems built with our low-code platform. I'm studying Vue and GraphQL.

Wow, this turned out to be a pretty long comment, but I feel kinda relieved for pushing those things out of my head. I apologize for the verbosity and for any mistakes - as english is not my primary language - and I want to thank you again DEV community for encouraging me to write this. Cheers!


Sounds like you'll fit right in


Hello Everyone!

I am Angel and this is my first time here. I am new to this side of tech - like really new and just starting learning about coding / programming. I am looking forward to immersing in this community and learning as much as I can to grow in this industry.

Thank you


The Funnel strategy is based on using the combination of a Support hero and a Hard carry hero. Using this strategy, the support champion would be played in the mid lane while the Hard Carry takes the jungle to build the farm. However, the twist is that the Jungler would then rotate between the jungle and mid lane farm.

Hello to everyone,
I find dev.to very helpful in my efforts to become developer - it is about 3 years of my everyday struggles with python as my first language and i really feel it as my place; it's a pity that my new career starts so late but i truly believe in myselfl.

Hello! I am a beginner coder learning python, c(#,++, etc), Java(etc) and whatever it is that crosses my path. I currently teach robotics to kids in K-12 while going to community college. I've developed a huge interest in coding due to my work and a special trip to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. I have gotten discouraged because I struggle in the 'ask for help' department but I have a sister and brother-in-law who encourage me to keep pursuing my interests and passion.


Hello everyone. I have just joined the Dev community. I also write my blogs at my own site learnai1.home.blog/blog-feed/. I am a Deep Learning enthusiast. I develop Android applications using Flutter and REST API's using .NET core.


Hey everyone,
I'm Avisekh ,
I'm a data scientist and interested in Cybersecurity, Technology.
