Hi Melissa - just remember it's the ideas behind programming that are more important than the syntax of the language or the parameters of a function. You have to get the idea, find a way to "see" what is happening, you can Google the rest (at least that's what I do... oh shit, now I have impostor syndrome!)

Hey there. I'm a frontend engineer mostly working with react an its ecosystem. In my free-time I read plenty of articles or experiment with typescript/graphql/node on the dark (backend) side ;)

Although I'm here for some time (some years already), I never wrote any posts and was mostly lurking around. But somehow I would love to change that and contribute some content back to this nice community. Any tips/topics on how to get started writing articles? Never had the courage to publish something :/

Hey! I totally connect with lurking around but feeling barriers to contributing content. I've been trying to get over this as well, but it's certainly challenging! I try to remind myself that wherever you are is where you are supposed to be, and in the perfect place to begin. Try to not overthink or get attached to perfection, and just get something out there! The more you do it, the easier it becomes. You can do it! :)

Hello! I've been interested in React for some time and will be diving into it soon. I'll be on the lookout for your articles. I think the only advice I can throw out there for getting started writing articles is just pick one topic/feature/interesting thing you know a good amount about and start writing. Articles don't have to be perfect and you'll get a better idea of what your style is and how you want it to present as you write more.

Hola from Guatemala!

I like to play with technology, I've created projects with things like tensorflow lite with Flutter, Fronted Applications with Vue + Laravel, Python Rest API, Go plugins for k8s, Kubernetes deployments and CI/CD pipelines. I'm not an expert but I've watched a lot of youtube videos!

I have experience in electronics working with boards like Arduino and raspberry and some robotic components. I'm organizer and speaker at Kubernetes Guatemala a CNCF official meetup.

And I'm here because I want to share content and learn from the community!!

My name is Nirbhay and I am a newbie in the world of development. I started my career in the Software field as a Customer Support Engineer and now I am working as a WordPress Developer at Ideabox Creations. Coding has very mysterious awe for me and I love exploring new realms of it. I came across Dev Community while trying to build a similar kind of blog on WordPress.

Cassandra • Edited on

I am Cassandra! I live in the Amazon of Peru. My past-life (LMAO) is as an ecologist, and small-business owner. I steward 2000 hectares of primary rainforest and work harvesting Brazil nuts 2 months of the year :)

I have loved computers since Joseph Marie Jacquard, and probably earlier.... I have some pretty crazy esoteric ideas about programming, but love nitty gritty details and concepts. Particulary, I am drawn to Security, and Open-Source software development.

I believe in a tech-future that isn't just dominated by S.Valley, but also influenced by people living in the smaller towns around the world. I believe highspeed internet access and technology literacy should be a fundamental human right.

My internet is ~7mbps on a good day, but speed is no matter to me // because what really fires me up is feeling part of a bigger movement and community. Already I have found some good online places to connect with other like-minded (and not so likeminded, but equally passionate) people who love TECH, and even more, who love talking with computers. You've also noticed, I LOVE TALKING (and listening).

I think 2020 is a great time to learn to be a developer. I am going slow and steady in order to dive into each rabbit-hole I fall into, but I am learning full time.

I know the future is TECH: it needs people with hearts & minds to influence towards technologies that serve healthy, happy people and cultures, and intact ecosystems.

Hello all! I'm Justus, I've been a mostly frontend developer long enough to know all about the quirks of IE6. I'm looking forward to both share some of my knowledge within this community, as well as being enlightened by others!

I've got experience with Angular, React, Backbone, of course jQuery (from back in the days) but I've also touched on Ruby (on Rails), Python and a touch of C#. I would like to broaden my experience on other languages, as lessons learned and techniques are often very well portable between those. Anyway, see you around!
