Gracias, Daniel!

Y, estoy de acuerdo en que Costa Rica es muy hermosa. Debo admitir que tuve que usar la ayuda de Google para la última oración. :-)

Estoy pensando en mudarme a Puerto Viejo con mi esposa... muy cerca Panamá. Entonces, tal vez seamos vecinos. :-P

It could be interesting to know actually, @ben is there any problem to write content in another language aside of English? eg. Spanish. I saw a few in the past but I'm not sure what's the official position from the admins, I have a lot of tutorials in Spanish I would like to cross-post here :)

Use it or lose it. I'm an aged analyst involved in system Integration. I just would like to throw in my 'two cents worth' of insights.

For example, most beginners are 'gungho' to get started without knowing the 'terrain' they're in. There's FRONT-END, BACK-END and FULL-STACK DEVELOPMENT. Do they even know and understand those terms?

The popular issue is what language to get into without knowing the necessary skill sets to thrive... CONTROL STRUCTURES - CONSTRUCTS and DATA STRUCTURES - DATASTRUCTS are fundamental concepts...

Good luck 😨

Paul J. Haddick • Edited

This resonated for me. In all things a fundamental approach will always be the most sound. I'm well more an 'imposter' than Ms. Ashley Petitpas, but also I'm an engineering graduate M.S. Industrial Engr, with limited experiences in software development. Always have considered doing some deep dives as certain problems I'm interested in can likely be solved via politically astute application to software development, especially in machine learning and especially of the reinforcement type. But I well realize that a fundamental understanding of certain computer science topics is essential as is having a structured, rational approach to apply for every development project.

Can you suggest any thing else I should incorporate in my approach Da2@ciri3dg ?

My next trick is to perhaps take a SAS cert course for various reasons. BTW. Also thinking the MSFT Jr. Dev cert course will be helpful given the approach I've seen in the TOC.

Da2@ciri3dg

If you still don't know html & css, start with these MARKUP languages. Then pick a language php or python.

You also need to read on control & data structures (constructs & datastructs) to be able to program.

Thana Annis

Hey, my name's Thana and I've been programming for 5 years now. I'm employed working on a Web Forms application and I'm a full stack developer. It's an old technology and wasn't written in a very maintainable way so I love getting to introduce new design patterns and concepts to the team, as well as refactor old sections of the code. In my spare time I try to work with MVC and WPF to get my feet wet in other frameworks.

Most days I absolutely love programming. There's nothing better than the rush you feel when you track down the exact line causing a bug, or when your code runs on the first try. It's never ever the same and you're free to be creative and try new things. It's an always evolving field where you write something you feel is "perfect", then look back on it a year from now with more experienced eyes and can find a way to improve it.

I kept getting suggestions to come read posts from this site and after reading enough that I enjoyed I figured it was time to join up.

Jamie McCarville 🇨🇦 • Edited

Hi everyone! My name is Jamie McCarville and I'm from Manitoulin Island, Ontario - Canada (born and raised in Ottawa). I have been learning to code and I am looking to transition into a job as a developer. I am currently working in education. I started with the basics with Freecodecamp and then signed up with Skillcrush. I learned HTML, CSS, JS, intro to design/Adobe suite and then did a couple of classes on Wordpress. I chose to do WP because I had a first client lined up that was looking for a WP site. After completing those classes, I wanted to strengthen my JS skills, so I went back to Freecodecamp and worked through the intro to JS and ES6 lessons. I am going to continue working through the rest of the FCC JS certificate on my lunches at work as the format is perfect for doing a couple of lessons at a time.

I am currently working through the ES6 course and javascript 30 from Wes Bos. I then plan on going through his node course and then diving into Vue and the MEVN stack. As with most new devs, I wasn't sure what language/stack I wanted to pursue. I always liked the idea of fullstack so that I could work on/understand all the parts. After doing a lot of reading and thinking I landed on fullstack JS with Vue. I like the idea of using the same language across the whole stack and being a new dev, the easier learning curve and good documentation were selling points for Vue. Anyways, that's where I've been so far and where I'm headed, so if you have any questions or are in a similar spot and looking into similar topics, feel free to hit me up. I found this site by coming across a number of helpful articles and if I would love to help if I can. Happy coding and here's to a success filled 2019!

Apparently what I like about programming is probably these things:

  • It's completely logical and controllable, unlike the reality that is uncertain, which sort of makes you feel powerful
  • You create something real out of pretty much nothing, and you can see your idea materializing
  • The ideas that you learn when you learn programming languages, platforms, frameworks and various approaches are often amazingly beautiful, which feels like a kind of art that only a developer can appreciate

I'm a web development student with Bloc.io but it's been pretty spotty since trying to get adjusted with mental health/leaving jobs/some other things this year. Now I'm trying to find an accountability buddy and someone just to bounce ideas back and forth with. I'm still trying to finish the curriculum but am going back and starting from the beginning to make up for the stuff I lost. Dabbling in game development (mostly Twine and Bitsy) and having a great time with that. I'm getting read to build my own PC this year and hoping that really helps me better understand how computers work and stuff. Really excited to be here and learn some more!
