Hi Everyone :)
I currently work as a film producer, and I started to study code during the quarantine and found myself completely fascinated with this world.
I still have a long way to go before I can call myself a developer, but I'm very determined and I expect to learn a lot from the community here on dev.to.
I'm doing all of my studying online (mainly on Codecademy PRO, and Udemy), and I plan to spend some months completely immersed in code to pursue a career in web development in the future.

Welcome :) I can totally feel you, I worked for 9 years in video and cinema, doing it all: grip, shooting, editing and eventually cinema mastering. After a transition time as a sysadmin now I'm happily hacking things together with Ruby (or perhaps breaking things apart) since two months.

Good luck!

I longed to get into development for a long time, so after quitting I used what I knew about Linux system administration and started from there. I tried to soak up everything I could learn from work and online like a sponge. What helped me the most was building a little web app based on a pain point found during my sysadmin role: ugly code, but it worked. At least I learnt what I shouldn't have done 😅 After that I aimed to a Junior developer position, and finally got it. It's never too late to be a junior, it matters your willingness to learn and adapt

Hi!

I started taking C classes when I was 14, and have been coding my own fun/useful projects ever since. I worked in the digital marketing industry for some years, but I am now focused on my true passion, coding, learning full time.

In order to refresh knowledge I have enrolled in Harvard's CS50. At the same time, I am learning new stuff on The Odin Project and FreeCodeCamp. It's a lot of stuff, but I'm confident in myself.

My current goal is finding a job as soon as possible in a company where I can find myself comfortable while still learning and expanding my skills.

Hello guys, I'm currently a leather artisan who focuses on making leather bags and wallets. I started learning about how websites and apps work after coming across an udemy ad on Facebook and people were arguing about how programming is hard and some even said its impossible to learn, others say it's a continuous process, but then I got so confused about what these guys are even arguing about and decided to follow up the link on the ad which landed me on the udemy website and it was a course on web development, after watching a preview, I decided to enroll and it's been fun since then, I mean I'm still a beginner, but I just love the problem solving aspect of it which makes me come back to it even when I get frustrated...anyways I'm aspiring to become a well experienced web developer in the quickest time possible and I know I could get a lot of help and inspirations from you guys here on dev.to THANK YOU GUYS🙂🙂

Working as Tech Specialist pursuing a degree on Informatics Computer in Costa Rica and also trying to get a Associate position where I work.

Around 10 years ago I knew were I wanted to go to learn and at 28 I started my journey. I've learned in my life with my inconclusive degree in Advertising Design that: following trends will kill your life, stick with some technologies, develop a carrier with them and enjoy the ride. The worst thing you can do is trying to learn everything and knowing a few things, but better to learn a few things with more understanding.

Hello everyone , My name is Cornelius.

I am an inspiring software developer with skill in python. My journey as a software developer started accidently three years ago after spending hours scouring the web for help with my car. Without any luck and no idea where to start, I began searching for help on blogs and watching youtube videos. No one had definity solution to my problem, until I watch one particular video that completely changed my life. It was a video about a guy programming computer chip using an arduino.. That's when it clicked in my head! I could not believe what I was watching! It was so amazing ,so inspiring, and most of all, It was the missing piece to the puzzle I have been searching for my entire life ! Every since that day,I have not look back and have been very determined to make it in this industry as a software engineer.

I am very experienced in Python, but also know other languages and frameworks like

C++ , HTML, Javascript, CSS, Flask, Django, Node JS, and Android Development.

I am also currently enrolled in the Harvard CS50 Web Development Course to further my skills in Web Development.

I have been studying very hard everyday for the last past 2 year to prefect my craft.
Although I still have a lot to learn, I believe I have what it take to start my career in this profession.

My dream is to start my career as a software developer and I have been searching for job everyday without any success (yet). Any pointers or ideas on how to land your first job as software developer will be very appreciative and helpful.

Thank you for reading this post!

Not just dev, but design, branding, marketing, devops, network engineering, and on and on and on... :) I've coded software, websites, mobile apps, integrated solutions, kiosks, browser extensions, interactive projections, and much more.

Had two software patents by the age of 23. I've got my own side-company, HERETIC, but am looking to replace my regular job with something less marketing and more tech (pretty tired of making WordPress websites)

Currently completing online courses as a refresher to what I already know, and to learn about new changes to technologies I've not used as often as I would like :)

I am a political analyst. In the mid-1980s I dabbled in Apple Basic for fun, but I also wrote a small business accounting program in dBase II. But life happened. So now I am trying to learn programming for some ML and NLP so that programs can start to analyze news text and speeches. I am starting to familiarize myself again with the math (vectors, kmeans), but I am also interested in the debates on object oriented and functional programming. I did work in procedural languages, so getting a conceptual grip on the new language paradigms means some adjustment (but intellectually interesting). I find Go and Julia interesting just as languages, but I guess I will have to go the route of Python.

Hi everyone!
I am currently a Computer Science Student, and this is going to be my first semester ever.
I want to make web applications to make everydays things a bit easier while surfing the internet.
I am learning Python and JavaScript atm, just to master the basics and get the logic of coding, then the sky is the limit!
I hope I can learn as much as possible. I always wanted to be a programmer and I think I've got my chance to proceed to my dream. :)
(I still think my english skills need more practice than my coding skills, heh)

Hello everyone, Im Clau, glad to be joining this friendly community! I started coding at age 12. Even though I didn't even know what I was doing, I loved it, but then I stopped cause I never had any incentive from school or parents and I didn't know what to do with that. Now, 12 years later, with a new mindset, I'm back again rescuing the inner child who refused to go to bed until she saw her anime gif posted on her colorful html blog. I have a new fire in me and I can't wait to trail this journey and become a fullstack developer! I am a Python fan, but I am currently dedicating myself to learning JS, which is also cool. Nice to meet you all! Let's code!

Hello! So, I am an operations research analyst, and I taught myself to program in several languages back in the day. But I couldn't tell you how to code a game, a mobile app, or a web app. But that's what I'm looking to learn in order to change careers. I'm very comfortable with OOP, data structures, exception handling, inheritance, polymorphism, encapsulation, separating content from presentation, and on and on. But I don't have a good handle of JavaScript/TypeScript, PHP, SQL, databases, server-client dynamics, or how all of these technologies can be put together in a stack for any particular use. My experience has been in creating purpose-built desktop applications for various reasons (at first, just to learn and then for graduate school work).

As far as real-world, mobile-ready, data-driven, cloud-enhanced, responsive design and implementation, I'm a newbie with the basics covered. I just found this community through a newsletter in my e-mail and thought it would be a good place to connect with others in my situation. Happy to be hear!

Hi Everyone :)

I have always been fascinated with the internet and the web. I started learning HTML and CSS with my Nokia 6085, a notebook, and a pen in 2008. It's been an eventful journey! I did quit many times, but the passion just kept pulling me back. After college, I just couldn't picture myself doing anything else. So, slowly, passion turned to determination. I read every book I could, visited a lot of sites and now, I enjoy every bit of it!

I'm a self-taught full-stack web developer. I currently teach beginner-level web development courses at upskillnetwork.org and also developing therecordunn.com with Laravel and vue.js.

I want to learn more about web technologies and everyone involved in it. It's a wonderful community.
