Hi everyone, I'm new here. Write javascript both frontend and backend, golang, python, java(android). Currently freelancing on Fiverr.

My most favourite project is an SMS application i built to collect users' feedbacks on a particular drink

i'm happy to be here


Hi guys,

I came across dev.to from a dev newsletter and was surprised there's this huge community of developers. Feeling right at home :) I am based in beautiful Victoria, BC and doing my masters in Computer Science at University of Victoria.

I love programming and all aspects of full-stack development. My favourite project was to build a data visualization framework using D3. js. My graduate thesis is focused on data mining.

Looking forward to meet fellow devs :)


Hello World!

I'm Nitya (@nitya ) from New York and I'm currently setting things up for our annual end-of-year developer conference, DevFestNYC. This is a by-community, for-community event and is currently in its second year. You can see last year's event page here.

This year, we are planning to hold the event on Dec 2-3 at Galvanize NYC, and make it accessible to more people both for learning about new technology from experts in the space, but also to get more hands-on learning for devs through workshops and codelabs.

So what kinds of content do we hope to share on this account? Well, the conference is focused on mobile, web, cloud, machine learning and emerging technologies (e.g, conversational UI/UX, IoT etc) and we hope to share both pre- and post- event content related to these topics, with some focus on speakers who might be there in person.

I am also personally interested in spending more time writing longer posts (vs. 140 char tweets). So I am hoping to also share some of the behind the scenes stories on what it takes to organize and run a developer conference. What works, what doesn't - and why.

It's a work in progress but I love the GDG NYC community and hope that we continue to repay the support of our members by doing more things to help them reach their personal and professional goals in tech. Have questions or comments, or want to get involved? Just say hello!



Hi folks. Favorite project I've worked on recently is my current one...collegescheduler.com! Helping a small engineering team do great things while learning something new every day.

Love Node.js, Javascript, CSS, and even some Java. Currently focusing on leadership and building high performance teams.

Happy to be here.


Nice project! I love anything that overhauls enterprise systems, since they're all so outdated and NOT useful. Still remember the pain of using Blackboard for registration and having to email professors EVERY semester.


Oh yeah, the students love the service. Having seen what universities ask their students to do in tools like PeopleSoft, it's very clear that the need is there for an improved experience. Thanks for the comments!


Usually IDK what to put or how am I going to introduce myself so:
Nelson, self-taught webdev student at FreeCodeCamp, Udemy, eDX among others platforms which are useful to practice. Mostly I spend my time reading about everything but I like politics, economics and code which was my first love (aww!) in high school but go to university was expensive doing CS, so I did my second passion (politics and economics) and finished my BA in International Relations.

Now I'm practicing (not a lot as I would like) in order to build something awesome but in the meantime, I want to help NGOs to build something. Oh, I write about bitcoins at Bitcoinlandia in spanish, something like a personal blog or something.


We definitely have users who understand Spanish that I'm sure would be interested in reading your Bitcoin posts.


They're welcome if they like to write also, my programming concepts about Bitcoin are very basic.


Hiya. I'm Gosha from Minsk, Belarus. I'm a consulting developer, doing React Native lately for my awesome clients; I'm trying to help developers by blogging regularly about things I see/hear come up often, and have self-published a book on forms in React after writing quite a few articles on the topic.

I've also been digging Haskell for quite a while for its interesting ideas in purity and its type system.


Welcome! Excited to read about the React Native posts.


Hi my name is David. I've been working on my thesis for several months (about 4 months) to get my engineering degree in telecomunications and information networks. This project is a distributed system for tournaments of programming. Contestants can be choose between java or c# to solve proposed problems.
I've been using vuejs, golang, docker and AWS. I hope that it soon can be deployed on the cloud to execute tests with real contestants. ;)

I've worked with PHP, Nodejs, Java, C# but I love Golang now!

If you want to see some my projects on my Github profile, you are welcome!.


Thanks for reading me!


Hi everyone, i'm a developer from the other side of the Trump Wall.

Nice to meet everyone, i'm currently into the journey of self employment, looking for inspiration, and learning from the peer robots, from everywhere willing to share, experiences, fortune and misfortune, as well to share it all back.

Beam me up Scotty !!!


Hello, programming world!

My first programming class used punched cards! That was about 1980. First program written from a university campus used a 300-baud teletype where paper was the only display. First embedded project was writing the X.25 protocol in Assembly from a specification using an Intel 8086 CPU. Favorite programming book is still Borland's Turbo Pascal because of its organization. I have many years experience as a communication programmer. Once had identical OSI protocol sourcecode running on DEC Vax 11/780, Pyramid (Unix), IBM mainframe, Sperry/Univac mainframe, AT&T 3B2, IBM AS400. My fingerprints are all over the police and traffic radar and LIDAR world.

Favorite project is the distraction I'm working on right now when I should be doing real work: Using a Particle Electron to publish diesel engine data via MQTT over cell network. I love that the Electron has a long, long list of available libraries that pretty much seem ready to go for the ones I've messed with. It is also easy to setup processes with its multi-threading capabilities.


Welcome, David. That's a whole lot of experience! Sounds like you're still working on software for hardware, if that makes sense. That's something I've always been interested in, but I think my current expertise (web development) is a far cry from your sort of programming.

Any thoughts/advice on how to learn more about "software for hardware?"


The Particle boards are nice to start with, plus have real C programming available. Microchip has some good get-to-know-us evaluation boards. Do you have any local groups that you can join?

I live in northern Wyoming, therefore unlikely to be local to wherever you are.

Yep, I'm in New York City, where I'm sure all sorts of groups exist.

Just did a quick look at the Particle boards; they look great. They seem similar to Raspberry Pi and Arduino, but there's probably some differences I don't know about.

Thanks for the advice!


Hello everyone!

Favorite project I worked on was one of my freetime projects that I had to shut down about a year ago. Its (lack of) success depended largely on having a large userbase, since it was meant to have people interact with each other based on location.

It never really got off. I'm still trying to come up with solutions to make it more attractive...

I'm really looking forward to explore this platform! Have a good one to you all!



Hi all,
I am a web developer for 2 years. Started with HTML/CSS then JS, React, now exploring back end with php and java. Keen to learn both OO and FP. Love JS. Always looking for new projects and courses.


Hi everyone! I'm Victor, from Kiev, Ukraine. I've found a lot of good articles with high quality on this site. So, I would like to follow you guys and have share some knowledge with you. Favorite languages is Ruby and JS. Last two years I works only with Nodejs. Thanks!


Hey everyone,
Long time pl/sql programmer (Oracle), currently learning backend JavaScript via node.js and Alexa programming. Work has me ramping up on Python and data science. What are you working on?


Hi, I'm Santhosh, from India. I'm working on iOS platform from past 5+ years, hv created mac utility tools in my free time. Have expertise in objective C , swift , C n C++. Beginner in python. love to learn new technologies.


I'm a self-taught programmer, auto mechanic by trade. By far my favorite project is also my biggest, The SBTCVM Project, a project that aims at creating balanced ternary Virtual machines and related tools, for witch i am chief developer.

My main programming language is python, though i do know bash shell, and have explored c and HTML in the past. Also, i do work with SBTCVM's assembly language quite a bit, as one may expect.

I also have a decent understanding of mathematics and logic, and do enjoy programming quite a bit. besides programming, i enjoy art, crafts, and videogames.


Hi ! I'm Paul from Paris, France. I'm currently working as a backend developer, mainly in Go and I'm passionate about what I do. I wrote some articles, even though I quite don't have the time now.
I love developing open-source projects, most of them are completely useless though hehe
My favorite open-source project is goploader, which I self-host at gpldr.in even though the main goal for this project is for people to self-host their own instance !


Sebastian Kolind, front-end badass @ Skybrud.dk. Currently spending a lot of time in Vue.js, creating single page applications at work. Would love to get better at functional programming and Node.js. Web: sebastiankolind.com- not much, but more to come. Also crafting a flatfile cms called Volcano in PHP.


Hello, I'm Tony from Pontianak, Indonesia. I'm full stack web developer, been working with laravel apps for a while now and starting to learn vuejs and also have a big interest in nodejs. I'm also a graphic designer.

I'm also used to be developing games and apps (mostly games) to windows phone platform, but well you all know what happen to windows phone, so i move on and learn something more relevant.

I hope by joining this community i can learn a lot with web programing (laravel, nodejs, vuejs, angular and others that i haven't known yet).


My favourite project is one that makes my life easier:


A bunch of utils to generate Java/Groovy/Scala projects from scratch with a single fire on the commandline: no bloat, no clicking around:

fika -pm

from the CLI help:

Some useful fika commands are:
assembly builds an assembly with every jar dependency and a Name.sh shell script
commands List all fika commands
libs puts every jar dependency into ./lib

Hello I'm Jonathan.
So I'm self learning web development now and want to be a better dev soon. I take courses from freeCodeCamp, Codecademy, Laracasts, and Udemy, Webpack Academy, to learn new things. Idk why I liked coding in web, than my previous newbie coding experience on VB.NET. Maybe it's the freeCodeCamp community that helps me when I am stuck at something :D

I am studying web development this day because our thesis project is like a video tutorial then quiz app. Lot of challenges ahead as because this our first project, figuring out how the system works.

We code our site with Laravel/PHP and Vue because of the tremendous amount of videos at laracasts. But someday I like to migrate to a full javascript stack. It's because of the interesting projects in freeCodeCamp. :)

Though I just fast-paced learned some concepts because of the time-limit on our project, I hope to have a bigger grasp of the concepts underlying in programming and apply them to my code. You know, like I watched advanced programming videos like design patterns or other advanced concepts like SOLID, but don't know when or how to use them to your advantage :D.

thanks :)

Hello all,

I am a recent college grad on the east coast with a passion for Android Development. The interest came about during my college experience when I was presented with a personal project where we had to solve a problem we experience often. Like many others, I have a hard time remembering my passwords for all the different profiles I have out there - social media, school profiles, work profiles, email, etc. If it wasn't for Google Chrome remembering my passwords for me, I would be resetting my password way too often.

Given the opportunity to solve this problem, I embarked on my first Android Application. Since that project, I have been doing more Android Development for both personal and work reasons. With much more experience with development over the years, I have decided to re-write the application and I am seeking to get it published on the Google Play.

I was directed to this website via a friend because he felt this community would be a good fit for me given my current position. I was a 4 year student athlete, 1 year captain, and a dedicated student to my department at school. Excited to become an active member of the community and I would love any feedback about my idea/other app ideas!


Hi Everyone, I'm Abubakar in Nigeria. I work at a company where my project is building a learning platform to allow kids practice for high school exams. I'm the front-end guy so i work with react/redux. I'm new to javascript so i'm always trying to learn as much as i can


Hi everyone, my background actually coming from Core Banking running on Mainframe using COBOL, CICS and IMS, but for the last 3 years my role has changed into coaching and preparing engineers to become more Agile.

End of 2014 we start to implement SCRUM into our core banking development team, change the release cycle from 3 months to biweekly and roll out to the rest of the other team on other platforms.

Starting this year we are preparing to upgrade our knowledge, Process and Technology to adopt microservices, XP and DevOps.

Happy to learn and share.


Hello, everyone!
It's mo over here, studied business computing but got rid of most of the business things. I am a full-time dev at a small-to-mid-sized German company.

I do mainly Java back-end coding for our workflow-application, but also done tiny pieces of JS and React. At my spare time, I love to play games and learn new things about programming since I'm a career changer and started out 4 years ago (as a student).

At the moment I try to find time to learn Kotlin... Yea I guess that's it. Cheers!


Yo! Found this site through r/webdev. Pretty awesome set up you guys have going on.

Well...I'm Rico and I'm busting my ass to become a better front-end developer!

Favorite project? Probably the job-board app I'm working on, decided to learn a library and set up a back end for it, stuff I've never done before! But I'm learning a lot and love coming home and spending time on it!

Doing it in React, Node, MongoDB. Fun fun fun!


Awesome! So glad to have you. Nice to see folks discovering us though that channel.



Let me introduce myself. My name is Daniel, but I'm usually known as Dani Sancas or just Sancas.

I've been into programming for less than a decade, but I found myself too passionate about it since the first minute. I've been developing web projects (mostly backend) for many years. I've started with ASP /w VB6, and then moved to PHP, I also worked 1 year with Delphi (Visual Pascal) and, as most programmers, I've been doing some things with Java.

However that's all in the past. My new love is the Big Data ecosystem. 2 years ago I've started using Big Data tools, such as Hadoop, Hive or Spark, but now my "toolbelt" is broader since I've included other tools like Nifi, Kafka, Flume, HBase, Zeppelin...

And, of course, I've switched my main language to Scala, embracing Functional Programming. Now I can say that "once you go functional, you never come back imperative".

My goal here is to write about Big Data, from the technical point of view (no business, no sales... no smoke at all!) so you (and me) can learn about it. I think I can improve my skills a lot while writing posts for other people.

I hope you find my articles interesting,
See you around!
Dani Sancas


Hi everyone! I'm Will, from NC, living in LA. I do back-end computer stuff, and work for a university library. Not formerly trained in code, but my graduate education was related to creative coding for experimental art and music.

Before the Summer (2017) we built a web-app with vue.js and laravel. It was a fun, fast, agile, and data-driven project that I was really happy with. We collaborated with university graduate students working on TEI encoded journals.

While the project isn't public yet, it was a really good team building exercise, and proved we could all learn, and develop without much overhead.


Awesome to have you on board, Will.

creative coding for experimental art and music

Damn cool.


Hi all, I like writing JS in the frontend and backend. I like playing with the DOM with JS too. I like to be involved with talented teams and engineers who help me motivate myself and help me enhance my skills. I believe that I still need more work to be good in programming but I tend to learn something new every day.


Hi everyone. I started out of college writing RPG for IBM big iron, then moved to C++ before getting into .Net. Currently, I'm an application architect working on cloud-based solutions in the finance industry. I don't really have a favorite project that I've worked on...they're all great! (Not really). One that stands out is a container-tracking application that let our internal users track shipping containers around the world using our various freight company's APIs. I also built a web-based CRM way back in the day for the company I was working for (this was before MS CRM or Salesforce)...still regret not commercializing that.


Hi ! I'm Jeremie, I'm a full stack dev in Python/JavaScript and Android (kotlin <3). I currently live in Paris and I'm very interested in InfoSec (I'm working on my CEH certification at the moment).

Mmh my favorite projet that I've worked on is a simple natural language processor, I'd love to get more into AI and neural networks if I have the occasion/time.

I love to travel and as a freelance dev I'm going to move a little bit around the world for the following years. So far I lived in Ireland and absolutely loved it, I'm not sure where I'm headed next.

Thanks for reading!


Basketball | Programming | Surfing

C# | ASP.NET | Web Development | JavaScript | OOP | SOLID Principles | Xamarin | Mobile Development | F#

I love reading technical books...not necessarily about a particular programming language or development framework, it could be about tips about being a Software Developer...simply books that are about Programming/Software Engineering in general.




Hi there, I'm Sebastien, from Beaujolais hills in France.
I spend a lot of time working with young developers, trying to make them better at what they do...
I've recently worked on a Spring Cloud Micro Services project deployed on AWS.
I'm currently looking at reactive systems.

Loved what I read here so far...


Hello, I'm Andy @ dev.to! Might be cheating to say that my favorite project has been working on dev.to (although it really is so far). I haven't had a very long developer career yet, but I really enjoyed this one project where I built out a CRM (customer relation management) tool for Rescuing Leftover Cuisine. It was a pretty simple project, but it being one of my first I learned a whole lot from it. Plus I was helping people as a developer, which was definitely something I wanted to continue doing as a developer.


High i'm oyinkan and i'm a self taught web developer. i write code in javascript and php. Also write code in angularjs, use the ionic framework to build mobile apps. I write or at least starting out to write about all things tech.


Hi there!

I'm Iñaki, from Spain. I dropped out of college from Software Engineering to take up sysadmin as a career. I am a Linux enthusiast and my favorite programming language is C (I have been also learning Haskell by myself, and even though i find it quite complex sometimes, I find it also really interesting). Currently I'm on my first job as Linux admin (and pretty much all-purpose IT tech half the time), and hope to get some certifications in the near future.

I've never worked in any big project but I made a IRC bot for a friend a few years back, a cartesian tree implementation, an a SQL db engine (a very basic one), all of them in C.


Hey guys,

I am an android developer by day time and a functional programming fan. Scala is the language I appreciate the most and learning. Been coding with kotlin on android recently. Happy to be here and learn!!


Ciao devs!

I'm an Italian software engineer, working in a big Italian IT consultancy firm as a software architect/tech consultant, mainly in banking/insurance sector.
My primary focuses in everyday work are DevOps methodologies, microservices and blockchain (both private and public ones).

In my free time I am really passionate about Linux, Lisp dialects, functional programming and uncovering new programming paradigms buried into non-mainstream languages. Also, I'm a fervent vim user!
Right now I am learning Clojure/Clojurescript, I will let you know about my side projects as soon as I start one. :)

Apart from dev interests, I'm also an indie gamer and avid trance music listener.


Well it's time to introduce myself. My name is Kirill, I'm self-taught, employed Java programmer. Working on my way to end Java specialisation at Coursera, learning on many resources. Trying to load up some useful bits of code in my github. I have a passion to learn about distributed systems.


Victor Hugo Avelar

I'm a software engineer at trivago, I hold a B.Eng.in Finance, with a specialization in Stock Exchange and Stock Markets.

I am a well-skilled laravel and symfony developer.


I am not sure, whether I am a software Engineer, Full stack developer, Tech lead, Team manager, Architect, Project manager, Scrum Master or DevOps(?!) Professional. Because I worked and working with all above topics.

I started with .net, but transformed myself to Open source & PHP.

Now, focusing on latest technologies emerging with PHP, such as front end frameworks, Baas (Serverless) and Mobile (Swift, Ionic etc..)

The Favorite Project I ve worked is KTAS Australia CRM (Kmart Auto & Tire), which was started at Sydney, developed in PHP using vtiger CRM 5.4.0, started with a good analysis with the inhouse team, users, Managers... etc, progressed into rapid development, initial release was in 2 months, support and development continued offshore.

Currently working with Italian team who are building efficient and intelligent extensions to their commercial CRM application.


Hey there!

I'm Wiley Marques (oh, really?). Brazilian. Web developer.

Currently I'm on a lead role but love to develop and learn about web.
I read a lot of blogs, twitter, etc. to improve what I know (and of course, what I don't know).

I use to work on Angular (1.x and 2+) projects and didn't have a chance to play with React yet, but I'd love to.

Still trying to find some time to do my own things, ideas that had never went out of my head :/

Well, that's it. Let's teach and learn!


Hello everyone, I am Shivam. I love coding and want to be a developer...

Hi. I'm a long in the tooth dev (started in hex on a homebrew 6800 microsoprcessor 'puter with 256 bytes of RAM). Currently tech is TypeScript on frontend with cyclejs and Serverless Azure Functions backend. Keen on open development and accessibility. Fave project is current components and product for people with cognitive disabailities and low digital literacy. Despite pain learning endless new frontend techs ;)


I love coding/hacking/making and giving back to the community. I don't think programming is about language, it is about fundamental principles. Very happy to be here. Am working on a few interesting enterprise projects and would be sharing my toughest experiences with the community @codewired


I usually work on MEAN stack.personally love NodeJS.working on GRAPHQL since 4 months and it is going to be my new crush.I want to learn angular2 or angular4.
what u think which is preferred or need to learn both???


Hey, guys. I'm David - a senior Computer Science student. Looking forward to reading some of your blogs!


Hi, I'm Adams. Been learning to code for a few months and it's been an interesting journey so far. Self taught but a student at codecademy and freecodecamp. Looking to improve my JavaScript skills and also give back to the community via open source. Hello World!


My favorite project I've been working on is the Play Station single page application I made for RTBF.
It was very easy, simple with amazing support and it's still a super simple and low maintenance app.
With simple event routing and backbone style webapp.
Coffeescript & require.js to have clean dependencies.
The app was so awesome that I eventually transformed it into a small coffeescript/javascript webapp 101 (with routing and whatever + low memory footprint + remote debugging 101 + 3 cache levels + node packaging 101 + require.js 101 + ...).
That was really awesome.

I'm not a good whatever languages you want programmer but I love to change often and to learn new languages as it gives me a lot of idea for my daily job.

Currently I'm testing some machine learning stuff and it's pretty awesome.

Also, I've been doing a bit of awk, python, ruby, Rust, C, C++, ASM (x86) (yes I'm that old).
I'm a bit more working with Javascript, php, bash.


What's up everyone! I am an undergrad student from India. Currently I am pursuing AI nanodegree after having finished the Deep Learning Nanodegree in Udacity. I love data and developing solutions that will have an impact in real world using data. I program mostly in Python and Java. Recently I had developed a deep learning model for Biometric authentication based on user typing patterns.

Currently I am focused on starting my blog and implement more research papers.



Hi All,

This is Velmurugan from India. This is my first post in practical dev community.
I'm currently a software developer with around 3 years experience. Currently working in an e-commerce framework. I'm quite interested in open source. I've not yet started any open source project. I've some open source projects in mind to work on. Will soon start working on them. Also, recently interested in algorithms, data structures, competitive programming. Trying to learn algorithms via competitive programming platforms like Hacker rank. Still a learner in it. I Expect some good exposure and help from this Practical Dev community. Would be more happy if I get some help.
Wish you all success and happiness 😊


Favourite project was an event management system that created personal schedules for three day networking events in Europe. The project included a event participates user interface that enabled them to make preferences that the system then used to create their itineraries that included:

  1. Travel arrangements (including ground handling)
  2. Accommodation
  3. Seminars
  4. One to one business meetings (based one two sided request based system)
  5. Mealtime seating plans that matched people using the same two sided request based system for one to one meetings

I initially developed the system in 2004; previously took the client 3 days to compile itineraries using a legacy Microsoft Access Database application and didn't get very good match ratios.

First time my system was used got 100% match ratio in less than three minutes and still used today!

LAMP developer for over 15 years, software developer for 30 years and great to be here.


This is the second time today I've seen developer = magician. :) I don't consider myself a magician (or a ninja) but I've been coding for 25-ish years. (oof I feel old admitting that!) I started at age 11 and have been at it ever since. I have a BS in Computer Science because "back in the day" no one took you seriously if you didn't have a degree (esp if you're a woman... ) My favorite projects are the ones that have a real impact on real people and their problems. I've spent a lot of time in health and ed tech, and some time in fintech. I'm a polygot though I loathe PHP. Happy to be here! :)


Hi everyone, I am Dimos a G(r)eek that lives and works in London as a Software Engineer. Currently I am starting to dive in the world of Functional Programming using the boat of Scala.

A project I recently worked on and enjoyed a lot is:


Hey there, Michiel here. I program bits and pieces only. During the day I am a teacher at a local school, but at night... I'm not. In a past life I was a full time programmer (C mostly). Now I can enjoy not having a boss tell me my ideas are crazy. Oh, and I currently have an interest in Neural Networks.


Hello Everyone,

I am Maulik Shah from India, is the founder & CEO of AppJetty, a digital software products store specializing in extensions, plugins, and apps for the host of software platforms like Magento, WordPress, SugarCRM, SuiteCRM, Odoo, Dynamics CRM, etc.

Happy to be seen in this community.



Hi everyone, I started out as a java developer, but now a days work on backend as well as frontend. I enjoy javascript development especially React. But I mostly work on Scala.

I am trying to start contributing to open source in any way I can. Still a long way to go though.


Hi everyone! Favorite project I have worked on was an event driven document processing pipeline using over a dozen AWS services.

My name is Kyle and during the day I am a Senior Software Engineer in Portland, Oregon. At night and on the weekends I am an entrepreneur and writer. I typically spend my evenings and weekends writing blog posts about learning AWS, adding chapters to a short book I am working about learning AWS, or programming one of my many side projects.

Favorite languages...I would have to go C#, JavaScript, and Python. I spend most of my day in MS stack so C# is second nature to me. I am constantly mesmerized by JavaScript and all of the directions it is going right now. Elm is something that has peaked my interest most recently.

I am interested in learning more about how I can help others accelerate their learning in Amazon Web Services. There is a big sea of information out there and people learn in different ways, so there is no one size fits all. However, I would like to create material that helps a large number of people.

If you are interested in learning more AWS you can follow the progress of my short book here.


My favorite project is (yes, I'm yet on it) realtime data processing related to the automated trading system (no, I'm not the developer of trading logic, I'm just a developer who handles realtime market event and manipulate them to the trading logic...). Programming language I'm using is Common Lisp (SBCL). And I like REPL based, try now and write more style development.
Yes, CL is not most popular one, I know, but I love it. :-)
Be Happy!


Hello dev.to!

I'm Dan K.

I received my masters in EE from cal poly and took my first job as a software dev at a small startup in Sacramento. There I worked a lot with Python and SQL, as well as a little bit of AWS and UNIX administration. I pretty much got my feet wet with software development at that job until I moved to another, larger startup in SF. I now work mostly with Ruby on Rails and have focused my learning on OOD. I've also touched some JavaScript, HTML, and CSS, along with a tiny bit of Chef and AWS cli stuff.

As I continue down this path I find myself very interested in software design, specifically OOD, as well as UNIX proficiency (administration, security, and command line knowledge). I definitely want to become more well versed on the command line, as I believe it to be one of the more fundamental skills when working with computers. I've read quite a few books within the past year dealing with these topics and am always looking for more resources to use to deepen my knowledge.

Along with the technical knowledge, I'm also wary of myself as part of a development team and what makes the code I write and the reviews I leave for others' code more impactful. I understand that I have quite a bit to learn still, but one of my goals in joining up with this community is to get better insights on what the community as a whole is focused on and what other peoples' opinions are on specific subjects. From what I've read so far, I think I'm going to enjoy learning from all of you.

Would love to read a crazy story of yours as an article!


I am considering going "Kitchen Confidential" on my career (almost 15 years). I like anyplace with grit, but I still have pedigree (lame work). A few gun and explosive stories, so more like Hunter S Thompson.
