I'm a software developer. I'm here because I'm looking to surround myself with as many knowledgeable developers as possible. I'm trying to increase my skill set as I'm looking for new employment. I learned about the dev.to community after listening to an episode of the Software Engineering Daily podcast that featured Ben.
I have about 5 years of software development work experience. However, all of that experience has been with one employer. I primarily work in a somewhat obsolete technology called PowerBuilder which was pretty popular in the 90s (or so I'm told). I'm currently working on taking the next step in my development career because I fear working solely in PowerBuilder is hurting my marketability. I'm currently learning Ruby on Rails. There's a pretty large Ruby on Rails community in my area. I'm really enjoying it so far! It's my first venture into web development in general, so I've got a lot to learn.
Looking forward to participating in this great community!
