There's a lot of content related to Web Development and Programming around the internet, but there's a problem: the most of it doesn't get translated to other languages.
In Spain, and I guess the same happens in other countries where the mother tongue is not English, every developer will reach the same point in their careers: they must learn English to be able to solve problems and continue growing.
Most of the knowledge in this field is written in English, and experienced developers for sure are able to at least read it. But there's people that are just beginning with their development careers and may get scared if even the most basic stuff for "The Latest Cool Library" is not available in their mother tongue.
When I began my journey, there were a lot of forums with big communities that would have a lot of these questions answered, but now I've tried to search for a couple basic things and most of the content is outdated. That's not good!
It's true that everything has been going way too fast during the last decade, and partly because of that, it's harder for people that doesn't speak English to catch up.
That's why I decided to create a YouTube channel for the Spanish speaking community. I want to provide the latest tips, the best practices and even entire courses that can help people that are just starting. Let's just try to remove another barrier to become a developer!
I don't know how many users of DEV are Spanish speakers but I guess it doesn't hurt to come here and showcase the work I've been doing for the last month!
First, my channel: https://youtube.com/HorusGoul
And here you can find some of my latest videos:
Yes, in 2020 there's a lot of people that still uses VAR, that's why I created this video, it got a lot of good reactions in some of the communities where I shared it!
This one surprised me, but it seems that some courses are teaching hooks without properly going through how to use
useEffect hook to do Data Fetching, a lot of people appreciated the tips in other communities :)
Deno launched last week, so I tried to answer the most common question, (Will Deno compete with Node.js?), alongside offering a good summary of their release announcement post.
It would be great if more people started to share stuff in Spanish around here, maybe a feature to translate posts collaboratively would even work too.
Thank you for reading!
