Hi y'all! My name is Amy. During the weekday, I'm a systems software engineer and occasionally a conference speaker. Day to day, I work with tools like Kubernetes, Docker, and Go. I love all things distributed systems! On the weekends, I spend my time making Youtube videos: youtube.com/AmyCodes.


Hi there, Amy.
Great YouTube channel you got there :)



My name is Rob and I work on the Chrome developer relations team. Specifically I work on the topic of accessibility. I also make YouTube videos! 😁


If you ever have an accessibility question, feel free to give me a shout πŸ“£


PS you can embed youtube videos with this syntax!

Yep! We both help run accessibility trainings πŸŽ“


Hi, my name's Ron. I've coded professionaly since 1984, starting out writing protein folding simulations in FORTRAN and C on a MicroVAX and MASM on an IBM PC in university. Since then I've actually been paid to write software in 17 different computer languages, the bulk of which were:

  • Java (23y)
  • C/C++ (10y)
  • Perl(7y)
  • UniVerse/PICK Basic (7y)
  • Python(5y)

The broad picture of my experience comprises middleware and back-end systems ranging from actuarial calculations, data munging and microservices to data mining and machine learning. I also wrote a couple of early "mobile apps" in Window CE, Palm OS and Symbian.

I've mentored/supervised several co-op students, a couple of which I'm most proud work at Amazon and Google.

Having used FOSS for decades, I've finally come around to seeking a project in which I may contribute.

As a hobby I write software :-0


Wow dis is great... i study actuarial science in school but i dont know how I can apply it programmically and plz can i use python to practice my actuarial mathematics

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!


Hi. Briana.i am learning python, R and SQL. I am planning to change my career in python coding field
But my bachelor degree in chemistry. Do I need bachelor degree in computer field to get job in coding field. I appreciate your time and your value advice.


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.


Hello everyone,
I'm Azedine software engineer, from Morocco.
I'm working at void.fr as Drugal developer.
I'm new here I found Dev.to page on facebook, I like it and I start to read articles.
I really like this community.


Hey Azedine! I love the void.fr domain. Two-letter TLDs are awesome, right?



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.



Currently working in Ruby on Rails and stumbled upon this community via @thepracticaldev Twitter account.

Looks like you have a bunch of really knowledgeable and friendly developers here.



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.


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.

Sounds aw some!

Welcome to the community!


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 Everyone!!

Dev's Awesome articles pulled me to this place. Let me enjoying it...

I have been writing codes past 5 years. Especially in the area of Laravel PHP, Vue JS.

Learning Docker, Kubernetes, DevOps..

Looking dudes who masters in Laravel and VueJS..


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.


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.


Great to join the platform where I can share and learn. I am Hemang working with a software development company names Cygnet Infotech. We are into enterprise mobility, Blockchain and Software development solutions and I hold a marcomm profile. Looking forward to communicating with everyone here. Have a Great day.


Hello everybodypeeps!

I am developingmans and a coder of C#, specifically ASP.NET Core right now.

Currently learning Reactjs as fast as humanly possible.

Follow me in the tweetspace @ashlawson , expect replies and likes with a 5+ day latency ;)

Kthxbi <3

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!


Yo! I'm Alaa!

I am a beginner web developer looking to level up my skills and meet like-minded fellows like you here!

Apart from coding, I enjoy writing(I have a blog), playing guitar and keyboard, drawing, reading books, and drinking green tea β™‘

Nice to meet y'all!


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 :)



Hey All!

My name is Nikolas! I am a 16 y/o Full Stack dev from Atlanta. I have been coding for just under 5 years!

Someone recently introduced me to DEV and I think it is going to be an awesome experience interacting with all you amazing people.

Super excited to be here, happy coding :) !


Hi Everyone, my name's JosΓ©. My friend introduced me to this cool community.

Hello you lovely people, im Paul, but you may call me sir 😁
Im a newbie in the world of coding, im more web dev side of things, dabbled with treehouse, freecodecamp and codeacademy, but i keep finding myself going back to lynda.com.
So anywho, looking forward to reading plenty of good info on here, after stubbling here after reading an article on medium.
Not much more to say at the mo, so...... awkward moment, not sure how to finish this off..... 😁


hi @all,

my name is julian, i stumpled upon this site because a friend of mine sent me the link to awesome post of @brpaz dev.to/brpaz/my-linux-development-...

blogging my thoughts was a wish i had for several years now. i always wanted to selfhost my blog but never had time to look for a good markdown solution.
if i had a topic for a blogpost, i only wrote it down locally. after seen dev.to i thought i give it a try.

mainly i am a devops but i also have some experience as photographer. developing using symfony (php) and operating using debian with kvm and puppet. i <3 to automate things. security and privacy are also things i am into.



I come from an Network Engineering background, delving into devops and software development, i want to be grounded in serveless technology, machine learning, artifical intelligence, software defined architecture and automation. I am hoping this blog can connect me with the needed technology and tools to achieve my career goals.

Thank you
