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! 🖖🏻

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.

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...

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 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!

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.

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.
