Hello, I am Mithil.
I was preparing my resume and when the part appeared to write about my hobbies, I was lost. So I decided to pick up hobbies that I always wanted to, like writing on dev.to!
I also solve the Rubik's cube sometimes :)

Hello!

Full stack developer here, looking to share my knowledge and help Devs become better Devs. 😃

I've been a member of Dev for a few months but have only just started blogging on the plarform.

I hope to release a couple blogs every week, tailored around IoT and web development.

For sure! I mean a few posts about industry insights would be nice but I think the majority will be software/hardware builds and some lessons on fundamentals like circuit theory, circuit analysis, amplifiers, digital electronics, analogue electronics etc

Colin here! Open sourcer and startup founder. I've spent a little over a year working on a next-gen medical record software (TypeScript, React, Node.js, Neo4j) over at bagel.md.

I'm planning to spin out a few open source libraries from that codebase over the next couple months. I'm starting with a TypeScript schema validation tool we call Zod - just posted my first dev.to post about it over here: dev.to/vriad/designing-the-perfect...

Rock on friends! 🤙

Hello guys!

I googled dev moms and it brought me here 🤷🏻‍♀️😅 I'm glad to find such a warm community. I'm trying to get back to dev after some years of pause. Nowadays I'm working in tech, but not coding, so I hope I can find my place again.

At last but not least (for me) I'm from Brazil 🇧🇷

David Kirchner he/him

Sloan, this one's for you.

I'm a largely backend developer that also does server work (bare metal up through k8s). I think I'm primarily interested in DevOps.

Most of the code I write is in JavaScript, run in nodejs. I used to write Android apps but the platform fragmentation ... well, I don't write apps any more. For servers, I use Salt and Terraform to make it easier to share changes for review and ensure reproducible builds.

I'm here to read about solutions created by other folks and maybe, one day, write about my solutions.

Regarding dev.to, I am impressed at how well the site behaves as an installed app (PWA?) and may need to learn how to write something this slick.

Hi everyone, I'm Lisa from Ireland, I'm and 38 year old mother of two who has been a stay at home mum for the last 11 years. I've always been a bit of a geek and dabbled in this and that as a hobby. This year I have decided to take my learning more seriously to find myself a job as a developer. This would be a complete career change from Payroll management. I am hoping with self learning i can be employable in the next year or two when i get the last child off to school. Spent the first few months of this year learning and building python projects which i really enjoyed, since then i have learnt the basics of a few other languages as well as sql, databases, github etc. Still a long way to go (especially getting anything with the kids around) but i am determined to get there. So glad i found this community yesterday, looks like it'll be a great help.

Excited to connect with more friends!

I've also started a classic Youtube channel to help new fellow developers with coding, mostly related to Java, Ruby, JavaScript and all the fancy things and I'm learning a lot through the process :)

Hi all!

I'm a full-stack developer (with a bit more frontend) of just over two years, based in Scotland. I work with VueJS, React, ASP.NET Core, some Java (even if I'd rather not 😓), and I'm beginning to get into NodeJS.

I've landed on dev.to many times when looking for answers to dev questions, and it just felt wrong not leaving hearts for the helpful answers. So I've finally signed up! I'm glad I have - the community vibe feels great.
