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. 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.

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

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.

jsn1nj4 profile image
JSn1nj4β€β€πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» • Edited

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.

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.

Hey! I'm new here. I obtained a degree in information technology in 2013 but then life happened and I wasn't able to get a job using my degree so I went into a medical billing job I don't hate my job but it's not true love either. I got out of the coding after my degree program because I didn't have time with my family and my job. I have more time now so I've enrolled with freecodecamp and I've also been taking courses with lynda.com. I I started my degree because my dad wanted me to take over his website. He put this website in 1995 and didn't update with the X he had thousands of pages and when he passed I let it all go. I've built some personal websites only one still stands everybody else has changed everything about the what I did. I want to learn more coding I want to get a job in a coding field. The saying goes, love what you do and you'll never work a day in your life, and that's what I want. So I am here to learn more then videos can teach me.

Hello there,

I'm Pek, a game developer in NY.

I've been into programming since before high school and been doing it professionally for the last 8 years. Currently I'm mostly doing Unity 3D consultation.

The Practical Developer has been an inspiration to me. In fact, I'm currently running a curated programming newsletter named Morning Cup of Coding which I believe a lot of developers here would like. I share programming articles that focus on learning something new and very technical on a daily basis.

Somehow I missed the transformation to dev.to, but now I'm here and looking forward to participate in it :)
