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:


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 📣


PS you can embed youtube videos with this syntax!

Yep! We both help run accessibility trainings 🎓


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 everyone!

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 as Drugal developer.
I'm new here I found page on facebook, I like it and I start to read articles.
I really like this community.


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


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.


My current obsession is making an OCR webapp work to make company expenses reports easier.

Sounds aw some!

Welcome to the community!



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.


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..



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 there, I'm Edison; A community contributor at Facebook Developer Circles Kampala, A python dev, Bot maker and automation consultant. I'm currently working on automation products for e-commerce sellers. Happy to be here :-)


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 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.


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!


Hello everybodypeeps!

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, but now I'm here and looking forward to participate in it :)



Hey there! This seems like an interesting and active community, so I signed up. I like the focus on inclusiveness and am curious to see how it pans out.

I've been an engineer (mostly backend) for a while, and right now I'm leveling up on VR, Go, and ES6.



Hello All, My name is Brice, i'm an ex-developper, now QA Expert and want to share my thought and experience about it here. I also like to take photography and doing portrait, why not starting a project with contributers?

Have a nice day.

Hello Devs, My name is Kofi: after 7 years of practical experience in Design and Programming, I am satisfied to call myself a Full-Stack Web Developer. I am familiar with:

  • HTML, CSS, JS (I was born with it :P)
  • PHP (7yrs)
  • Angular (Typescript) (3yrs)
  • C# (5yrs)
  • Python (1yr)

I have created PHP 7 & CSS/JS Frameworks for both Client and Server side programming (Check GitHub) at the same time, keeping my passion for Computer Graphics in check through Media Softwares like Photoshop, After Effects, Autodesk Maya, Blender, Unreal Engine ... just to mention a few.

I recieved a lot of comments and critics on my PHP Frameworks to conform with PSR as a result of reaching out to Devs like you. I am here to LEARN: teach me and criticize my work.

I believe if your code works, then its outdated: that is to say, there is always something new to learn.

Hi, everyone. I've been reading post over here for a while, but only until now I've decided to sign up.
I really like how understanding and helpful everyone is around here.
I'm currently a half-time intern at a big company's engineering center in Mexico, building internal websites and automating tools.
I hope to learn a lot more and collaborate in this community :)


Hello all, the names Luke I'm a life long student surrounded with nobody who understands what I'm talking about most of the time. I've soldiered through a number of Google Apps script tools and have decided that I want to do my best to focus on a more involved language. I had made my mind up on Polymer but found my lack of formal education leaving me uncertain about what I don't know. So I I decided to go after Angular as it is similar with a fair amount more content and reference info. I'm looking to build a scalable customer service app which will hope fully become a resource to inform manufacturers of eJuice with what aspect of flavor people actually do and don't like. I have no idea how this app was opened on my phone as I looked down and it was there. Hope everyone is learning something new each day and cheers!


Hey fellow codelovers

I started 2008 developping frequency models for settop boxes and backbone systems, after 10years in a ton of different environments I find my self loving cloud native stuff, even though I havent really done much with it yet;)

Hobbies: coding, automating, 3dprinting, photography with my lovely Sony Aiii and traveling :)

Looking forward to my time on



Hey everyone! My name is Zaid. I just finished a masters in software design, and I am interested in learning/coding in python, java, and SQL. I am at a crossroads. My prior experience is in report writing and Business intelligence, and application support (a vague term for analyzing software logfiles and troubleshooting). However, I've always wanted to work as a programmer/software engineer/coder doing things in webdev or django or java. I took Java and Python classes as well as NoSQL and traditional databases, and I want to do some work that combines those technologies, but I don't have the work experience to show for it.

I'd like to learn from others about:

  • How did you land a job as a coder? especially for those with a non-CS background.
  • what sort of skills do you highlight during an interview or on a resume?
  • How do you answer technical interview questions?

Thanks and looking forward to joining this community!

Hello fellow coders,

I'm a self taught JS (Vue) developer that caught the coding bug in my 30s, and I shifted my entire life to focus on it.

I love making projects on ideas I have, 4 to date, mostly in Vue.

I'm still learning and want to gain a deep understanding of CS, so I'm currently taking edX's CS50, reading CISP, learning React and Python, and plan on doing a lot more.

Looking forward to meeting more coders!

Hello world!

My name is Aaron, I'm a info-sec student studying in Japan! I started out my journey as a developer with Java but have since branched off into Python, Nodejs, C, and C++. It's been a wild ride so far and I'm excited to join the community!


Hello. I saw a post asking for mitigations for EFAIL. So I (posted)[] a (link to a mitigation strategy)[] for the particularly stubborn issue of sending messages from an EFAIL-safe sender to an EFAIL-unsafe sender, along with a short outline. I would greatly appreciate any critical feedback. Cheers! Craig


Hi! My name is Jenny. I am a C#.NET developer with lots of Windows experience looking to branch out into more full stack web development . I've just accepted an offer for a Senior Developer where I will be doing just this! Exciting!


Hi all!
My name is Daniele.
I come here often and like this community very much.
I started coding 3 years ago to help the small family business where I work and
it has become my passion (a feeling that I haven't had in a long time, switching
careers constantly and even graduating in electronics engineering).
I want to learn as much as I can and hope to share something useful.
I am very much into nodejs and all the javascript echo-system. When I have some spare time
I print cubes with my 3D printer :-)


Hey this is Punit. Backend dev in ruby on rails from Mumbai, India. Trying to become full stack getting my hand dirty in react. Thinking to learn AI and new technologies around but hardly made any progress ;).

Hello everyone,

My name is Cliff. I spent years working with a client/server RDBMS called 4th Dimension (4D). Anyone? Well anyway, I'm a recent graduate of a cyber security bootcamp, where I was introduced to (among many other things) Python. I rather like it.

Since the bootcamp ended, I've been seeking employment and also trying to get better at Python and figuring out what I can do with it. Also interested in getting better at SQL, and data in general.

I found this community after following @thepracticaldev on twitter, and this looks like a grade place to be!


Hi all,

I'm Joris, a dev from the Netherlands. I've been a web dev for quite a while now and i'm currently specializing in embedded systems.

I'm looking forward to be part of this cool and welcoming community.

If you have any questions about web dev, embedded systems, living in the Netherlands or anything else, let me know!


Hey Folks, my name is Chris. Originally a .Net Dev recently moved across to focus on Salesforce. Love reading the threads on the site, and interested in all things techy, so thought what better time to say Hi!

This is me on a good day!

I'm a Seattle-based NB currently in a full-stack web dev program on a career change from working in specialty coffee. I'm learning the Ruby on Rails framework mainly. <3 back-end, </3 front-end. Looking to expand my skills by learning some other languages soon! (Java, C++, the usual ones on all the job listings)


Hi Dev Community this is Neer and I am trying to learn vanilla javascript while experimenting with ruby on rails. I got to know about practical dev from hilarious silicon valley clip posted in twitter when amazon was down :)


Hello all. I found my way here after signing up for #CNC2018. I didn't finish the project, because 2018 has been blowing up in my face since the first day. But I'm here now, and happy to put my fledgling Github account to practical use.


My name is Chris. I've been building and modifying custom Android ROMs for years. I'd consider myself a beginning programmer with a lot of knowledge about Linux and Android, as well as some knowledge of Java and c/c++, and I'd like to learn more about those languages. Also some beginners knowledge of HTML, CSS, and PHP. Glad to join the community.


Hey all!
My name is Connor.

I have been programming since 2012 when I entered college as a CS major, initially learning Scheme as my introduction to function oriented languages, then onto Java for object based. From there I explored into web frameworks when Rails became more mainstream, assisting in developing a site for my college's student run newspaper, and smaller tasks in Sinatra.

Finally landed onto Python, where I primarily work now as an internal developer and db/sys admin... for the college that I went to, who hired me after I graduated.

In my spare time I work on art of a variety of types that interest me in the moment, some which can be found on my website: .

Looking forward to learning and contributing here!


Hi folks, I'm Sander!

I've been reading a couple of articles here and there and just had to sign up to reply to a comment because someone was wrong on the internet (!!!).

I'm currently self-employed working on @EpiciniumGame in C++ and I'm also experimenting in Rust a little bit.


Hi, dear community!

I'm Krishna from Codeasy...
Hope you’ll not consider this as spam, though it is a kind of self-promotion a bit :-)

My post is about introducing myself and asking your feedback.

Around one year ago my friends - a web developer and a game developer, decided to create a programming tutorial. and asked me to join))

What do they told me "We always wanted to help people who struggle with programming assignments and make it as clear as possible and as easy as it can be. To make it really fun and involving, we built it as an adventure story, where you travel in time and fight machines in future by... coding! The final goal of the story is to save the world and become a software developer!"

Sounds great?! Yap, I thought! That's how project was born.

We focused on C# programming language, but in the very beginning, it does not play that much of a role, as the course gives basics of programming.
The course is free for all including practical assignments and offers additional paid features.

Please, take a look at, tell us what you think, did you enjoy it or not and maybe even get to the top of our leaderboard!

Happy coding!


Hi! I've been reading DEV posts straight from Twitter for some time now. Only recently did I get to explore the site and I am hooked. I usually enjoy lurking and being anonymous but decided to sign up to join in on discussions. I appreciate the constructive and welcoming atmosphere of the community.


Hello everyone! I've been lurking for too long and decided to make an account. I'm planning to write articles about procedures that took me too long to figure out, both as a way to ingrain the lesson in my head and also help others that might stumble upon the same issue. Cheers!


Hi there, I'm Pere. I work managing tasks (assign, review, schedule, and so on) in a support datacenter team. I'm planning to adquire some elemental skills as a developer since I'm considering a change in my career. So, from very, very scratch to what it takes, I'm an absolute beginner.

Hello! My name is Shante'!


I am an IT Support professional (specializing in Clinical Support & Instructional Technology) looking for a new hobby with a potential career change. I decided to learn the Swift language because I am growing bored of the lack of Apple Watch Apps available and I am disappointed to see devs give up development on the watch. I have some object oriented experience with C# from college but I'm a bit rusty. I love this site and I finally decided to join. Here's to fun & efficient coding!

Hello! I'm a career-switcher, a couple of years in as a Django developer. I'm a member of the Django Software Foundation board and interested in extending opportunities in tech to people from all geographic locations and backgrounds.


Hi all, I'm Akbar. Got to know about from my Twitter. I used to work in Android for 4 years. Now I'm into Unity 3D game development. I work on NodeJS and RoR in the spare time. I mentor two of my friends software companies to help them setup their infrastructure and helping them to be upto date with the present technologies.

I never cared about contributing to open source projects due to times issues and many other things. Looks like it created a void in myseld in terms of software development. Maybe I can find some help or I can get help if I'm gonna create something useful for the open source world.



Howdy! My name is Major and I'm a self-taught infrastructure wrangler with a growing knowledge of Python. I work on kernel testing at Red Hat now, but I was working on OpenStack for many years at Rackspace.

I've done some talks on impostor syndrome in the past and I mentor students at the University of Texas San Antonio whenever I can.

I also blog occasionally on and I operate

Ham radio folks can find me on the air as W5WUT. ;)


Hello everyone, I came here searching about the programming language Crystal, which makes me crazy because of its unique characteristics, I think Crystal have a huge potential for develop AI and ML software, also to enter in the niches currently occupied by go, What do you think? Has anyone used it?
And my name is Carlos, from Mexico, single and open minded!! 😉😉


Hi, I am Pablo
I am in the middle age crisis, I have a programming language that nobody uses, I have three kids, and I think the software industry is turning into circles, I program since the time of the microcomputer commodore and if it was not because I discovered the FORTH I would be in an asylum.

Hi there my name is Gbenga Oyetade. I'm a software developer at Andela Nigeria. I currently work with javascript. Fun fact: I love visual art and I draw quite well. Some of my works are here


Hello everybody! Just joined community and stumbled upon this thread. I'm a student currently working on a GTK+/Python desktop app for my undergraduate university project (matplotlib, pyserial, sqlalchemy). Hope soon I could write some stuff to share with the community :)

PS. Had a little fun decoding the binary stream on the top of this page, so here's my humble Python "solution". Any tweak is much appreciated!

input = '01110111 01100101 01101100 01100011 01101111 01101101 01100101 00100001'.split(' ')
print(''.join([chr(int(i, 2)) for i in input]))



Hey everyone! My name is Cody and I am relatively new to the coding world. I was formerly an accountant before attending a code bootcamp and successfully transitioning to a web developer. Just here to soak in as much knowledge as I can.

Hey guys & gals! Dee here! Just signed up! I've been "attempting" to learn to code for almost a year... keep getting off track because life keeps getting in the way. Trying to also be better about that. I hope to find some support through this community as well as help throughout my growth as a future dev. Currently allowing Javascript to kick my butt, but I plan on conquering it soon! In my other line of work, I'm a CAD tech for an engineering company, I love my 2 girls more than anything (probably the biggest reason I get sidetracked from learning AND I love exercising! Training for my first triathlon at some point this year. :)


Hello, am freeman from Nigeria, a biochemical technologist and a web developer. I write PHP (Laravel with the love for lucid architecture) also a Nodejs and angular developer. currently I spend most of my time on the steemit community where I write web development tutorial. Am really happy to be here, a place to learn more and make new friends. See ya all


Hey hey, ppl! Andrey here - doing iOS/macOS software by day, and scratching my itches by night which mostly revolve around all the rest things like new Swift tricks to long forgotten but yet living trickier ObjC voodoo to whatever floats in that air like CI/CD, some new and classy as well as long forgotten approaches that still do serve well for my CS problems (that sometimes happen to be ruby/ES/java or stuff I only come to acknowledge it even exists). Since I got some free time here and there I'm going if for this #100days marathon expecting I learn something I never realized I could someday learn - so this is kind of my official ready-set-go(Lang?) Announcement. Let's see where it leads me - hopefully that's somewhere where I'm thankful to arrive to and kick some more gas from there!


Hi Devs,

I just recently discovered this site. So far it seems really cool.

About a year and a half ago, I created a simple static website for my wife. This was my 1st experience with coding anything. I loved it so much that I am currently trying to become a DEV myself.

As of now I'm studying Go, JS, and all things web-dev. Dreaming of one day becoming a full-stack dev, with a specialty(not sure what yet). ✌


Hi guys! I am Karan. I am a computer science undergrad. I am a Java developer and am currently building my skills in the JavaScript ecosystem. Node, Babel and Prepack are my favourites. Am currently stoked about JS optimization and am learning building compilers and transpilers to help optimize web experiences!


Hello. I’m Michael J Stokes and I’ve been a coder for years. I am a bootcamp graduate from General Assembly and been working hard preparing for my coding career ever since.

Hey all! My name is Kaari Strack, and I'm a junior Rails Dev for a DevOps company in the UK! Fresh out of bootcamp, but I've been working my way up to programming for years, solo. Loving every second, and desperate to learn and apply new skills everyday! 🎉


Hi guys,
I'd love to be a member of this cool community!


Peace! I'm a young coder; though i wouldn't call myself a coder... I know python and html basics, and can build simple non-graphic executable apps... Looking for new learning sources, hope this place would help out...


Hello all! I've joined DEV with the intention to brush up my competitive programming in Python :)


Hello everyone. I read a good article and wanted to join. I am looking to get better at webdev and diving into node+express, and django. Looking forward to learning and sharing with everyone.
