Hey dev.to community!
I‘m Ben. I‘m 27 years old. Almost 2 years ago, I started to teach myself how to code. Now, I am working as a software developer for more than a year, mainly doing web development at a fintech startup in Germany. I have been around here for some time already and decided to be a more active part of the community.
Ever since I got into software development, I was astonished by the natural common sense to share and extend knowledge within the community. I hope to find some like-minded people here and I am planning to start a small blog series to give something back to other developers.
My main interests are backend server development in Java and Python. In addition, I am experimenting with Golang and Flutter on a personal project. I am working in a data science team, so I am also into data analytics/engineering topics, but without any deeper knowledge or education.
Looking forward to be part of this great community!
Self care is a hot topic these days, and I’m not just talking about face masks. There is a growing movement that underscores the importance of taking time to take care of yourself (in addition to all the other things that you already take time for). You can prevent problems down the road by taking proactive steps to ensure your health and happiness.
