Hey! My name's Briana. I'm quite new to development (completed a coding bootcamp back in December 2017 and now working as a developer in the Salesforce platform). It's been a crazy, wild ride on the #strugglebus since my decision to shift careers... but I love it!

Hey vhorayarif, I'm not Briana but I decided to get a job in programming without any experience in it. Short answer is that you don't need a degree to have a career in programming (or data, from what you're saying).

I've worked with computers and played video games for a long time and was familiar with tech, but not in a software-oriented way at all. I learned to program on my own for a bit before enrolling in a coding bootcamp, and eventually got a programming job. My take is that it takes a decent amount of luck, but you have to work hard in order to get to the point where luck can help you. Sounds like you're on the right track. :)

Here's a great article about it, from someone more experienced than me:

Hello everyone!

I've been following @thepracticaldev on Twitter for a while, I've been loving the shared discussions and posts, and I have finally given in to the fake comment and signed up.

I'm looking forward to learning and sharing in this warm and fuzzy community.

HI! I am a developer working in SAP at the moment dealing with UI5 in the front end, gateway/backend in ABAP and CDS. In my spare time I make abusive chatbots on Slack API and I'm trying to learn how to make them on twitter. I like to muck around with CSS and UX since aesthetics aren't overrated enough in my opinion. I mess around with drawings and animation as well! My current obsession is making an OCR webapp work to make company expenses reports easier. This will prove that I am actually valuable to my company and not just a frustrated artist who wants to code.

I have been at it for about 9 months now and have successfully completed two new projects. It is tremendously dev friendly.

I had the pleasure to go to Railsconf this year in Pittsburg and I was blown away at the amazing community of people all working to improve this framework.

I have found my home for now and I am loving it.

Hello everyone. My name is Deji. I'm new to programming(9 months). I started with php, but I've delved into the world of javascript. I'm currently taking an online course on javascript,but I would like a suggestion on how I can improve on javascript apart from the online course I'm currently taking.

I studied business administration in school, so it's been quite a transition for me. I practice everyday in the hope that I'll get a developer job within the next 5 months. That is the goal I set for myself.

I'm also a writer, I write sports articles when I'm not coding. It's good to be here.

Hello

I started following DEV on social media before I knew what it actually was. I'll probably mostly be a reader (as I am on social media), but this does look like a great and fun place to get into discussions and begin writing posts.

As for what I do, I currently work within the WordPress realm. The most recent things I've started learning include Vue and React (to see which I like better), and Laravel more recently. I do still have a ways to go in learning to work with SPA-type projects, but it's been fun so far.

I was also learning MeteorJS for a while, though I haven't yet found a specific need for it -- as fun as it is to work with.

I guess I should mention which I like better of the 2 front-end frameworks.

I'm leaning towards Vue currently, but I do see what makes React attractive to other devs -- specifically, being able to keep logic and markup together for a lot of different purposes.

Coming from the "no mixing HTML and JS" side of things, it's been a little a bit hard to adjust to mixing the 2 (even if JSX isn't really JS + HTML), but I'm at least more open to it now.

Hi everyone, I'm kheme, a PHP developer. I've been coding websites since 2003. In 2008, I got introduced to VB (.Net). I am considering transiting from a freelancer into the 9-to-5 world again. I have done some pretty interesting projects in the last couple of months, including working with biometrics (like fingerprint capture and matching). Hopefully, my stay here will be fun!

Hey everyone. I'm just a guy with a long history of interest in technology who has occasionally found himself building tools (and processes) over the past decade to automate the boring stuff. I started with spreadsheets (that's a thing, right?) and I've progressed to Bash, Python, and SQL.

I'm philosophically aligned with free and open source software. I've been a linux-primary user for nearly 10 years, and I'm looking to learn more.
