Hello, my name is Luis. I'm from Colombia. I'm an electronic engineer but I love to code. I'm not a pro in this, but I try my best to learn every day. I'm learning Angular 6 right now. My favorite non-coding hobby is perhaps to travel. That's it, thanks a lot.

Saludos Luis!
I'm a developer but I'm in love with embedded dev, embedded Linux, microcontrollers and such (ST32 HAL is beautiful in my opinion!)

Anyways, welcome!

here's one way:

const myFunc = (number) => 
  number === 1 ? 0 : number === 0 ? 1 : null;

myFunc(1)
// 0

myFunc(0)
// 1

myFunc(2)
// null

Hi Sir, Can You answer this question??
Write a vanilla javascript program that returns 0 when input is 1 and 1 when input is 0. Do not use if, for, while, switch, do statements. Write as many implementation as you can think of (minimum 4 ways).

Hello. Well, I think this is it:

f1 = (input) => { return (1+input)%2 };

f1(0); // 1
f1(1); // 0

f2 = (input) => { return (1-input)%2 };

f2(0); // 1
f2(1); // 0

f3 = (input) => { return ~input&1 };

f3(0); // 1
f3(1); // 0

f4 = (input) => { return +!input };

f4(0); // 1
f4(1); // 0

I'm waiting for your comments about it. Thank you.

Well, nothing exciting. I worked for a medical company for about 7 years, but my job was to install, repair and do maintenance to medical devices. Right now my job is in the management area... kind of boring sometimes, but a job is a job ;)

Hello!

My name is Ryan and I'm a systems admin pretending to be a programmer. Looking to learn from others and hopefully give back too! Most of my experience is on the Systems/Ops side, with most of my programming being of the integration/monitoring/back end fun variety.

That sounds like a lot of fun I'm the CEO of a company and I'm not very good at programming the software firm that I developed we have over 300 developers so I don't really have to be good at coding but I have to be good at Concepts and business management but I'm really good at reading people being able to read people is really important in software development and business which is what I excel in I do code for fun with unity and JavaScript. I really should be better at coding but when you have 300 software engineers and you an American company it gives you a lot of clout and imagination to make your ideas come to life rapidly started a game development company with my four Sons because teaching him about business and technology. I thought was really important for what better way to do that than to teach business Concepts and basic development then to make your own games.

Programming can have a steep learning curve. Don't let that discourage you.
For starters:
-Pick ONE language to start with.
-WRITE lots of code. If you don't know what to write, try Project Euler. They have many small puzzles to solve.
-READ other people's code.

Hi all, I've been coding since 1996 and am currently overwhelmed by the many different frameworks and tech stacks. Even in Python (Why use asyncio instead of concurrent?). Same reason I quit Magic: The Gathering for 15 years when phasing was added after cumulative upkeep and one had to memorize those rules.

Ohad Eder-Pressman

Hi all, my name is Ohad. I've been writing code since I was 13 years old and still consider programming and its various abstractions (logical reasoning, etc) as one of the main tools I use in my life. I started with computer graphics programming in what is known as the Demoscene and in recent history have been building web projects of all sorts and kinds.

Hey Liana, it was a pretty natural thing as more and more of my time as a user moved to using web apps/sites as opposed to then-native apps.

Hi my name is David and I'm a digital marketer with a longtime fascination with coding that goes back to GW-BASIC in the early 80s. I've always loved automating things, and so today I'm learning Node.js to connect APIs. I've been involved the open source community for more than 10 years. My favorite non-coding hobby is motorcycling. It's great to be here!

Kevin Cocquyt

Been working in the IT business since 2001 but never felt too confident to share my knowledge with the rest of the community. Started out programming cash registers using proprietary software, dipped my toes into .NET on my next job when it first came out but the next couple of years were mostly building webforms (just forms!) so not that exciting. Tried to go into consultancy next to experience newer things but, except for 1 excellent job (before I went on a world trip), never really got me anywhere until I found my current (fixed) job. Assisted in introducing .NET MVC into the company, been able to learn on the job and applying the latest in tech, project after project... Azure, JS frameworks as Knockout and Vue, self-hosted services... Always after extensive research about whether we could/should use it or not, creating a fond knowledge about different kinds of things, resulting in enough confidence to start sharing stuff. Hopefully, this will last as other (skilled) developers will eventually review the things I will write :)

PS: About my favorite non-coding hobby. That would be ice-hockey, active as a goalie and passive as a crazy San Jose Sharks fan.
PPS: I'm Belgian!
