Hello! I'm Arnelle, a fulltime Web developer (mostly focusing on the frontend). Right now I'm into VueJS, and recently started learning React as well.

I have a personal blog, but looking into posting more here in the future.

Looking forward to learning and sharing more cool stuff here at dev.to! ❤️

Welcome Arnelle,

I look forward to reading your thoughts on the transition form Vue to React. I'm making a foray into React from Angular. I enjoy Angular 2+ and now I'm at a point where I'm ready to check out other frameworks. A few customers in my market have asked about Vue and so I think that will be my next look after React.

Thanks Stephen!

Will definitely write about my experience with React. I am rebuilding my personal site with React and have learned a lot from it. Still needs more practice though to get comfortable with it 😆

Vue is cool as well in its own way, totally worth checking out 👍

Phil Fernandez

Hi, I'm Phil. I am a 39 year old undergraduate studying Computer Science at Sacramento State. I'm about half way through my junior year. I love math, puzzles, and solving problems in general. Starting this Spring I'll be learning about database management systems, computer organization, and software engineering, as well as linear algebra.

Outside of school, at the moment, I've been spending allot of time teaching myself about web development. Things like the basics, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and some other topics that fall under that umbrella, such as Python and Django and Flask, React, Sass/scss, etc.

I don't remember how, or where, but somehow I stumbled across this site and it seems pretty cool. For a while I was just lurking, but I though what the heck, why not sign up? So here I am!

Welcome, Phil!

What were you doing before Sacramento State?

Phil Fernandez

Hi Jesse,

Before Sacramento State, and for most of my adult life, I was doing varying types of trade work. Carpentry, house painting, handyman work, etc. I owned a small business for several years doing this type of work. A few years back I was presented with the opportunity to attend school for training in any field of my choosing. I've always had a thing for computers, so I decided to give CS a go. Initially the plan was to just attend a local community college for an associates degree, but once I got going in academia I really enjoyed it. I decided to take it to the next level and go for that four year degree.

Hi John, thanks for the warm welcome! There's definitely allot to learn when it comes to Django. I'm a beginner myself, but if you ever run accross something that you could use an extra pair of eyes on I'd love to help out to the best of my beginner's knowledge!

Hi, I'm Walter from Mexico.

I'm a 26 y/o PM.

My main goal for this year is to learn to code so I can deploy my own products. My current stack is nothing fancy, just HTML and CSS.

Before I move into JS I decided to do a real project and that is my personal website, you can see the work in progress here.

I've been lurking the Dev community for a while, mainly reading some awesome posts, but now I'm going to interact and maybe publish some stuff too.

If you guys want to connect on Twitter, please let me know :)

Hello to all! I'm Danny.

I'm currently a sys admin wanting to focus more on dev ops side of things by following a web developer learning path to see how everything is tied together (front-end, back-end, dev ops, etc.). This seems like a good place to get exposed to a bit of everything and share my own experiences on my personal development journey.

Hello all!

I'm Bogdan, a frontend web developer at the moment, but throughout my career I have also done backend work.

My tools of choice: Laravel, vue, angular.

What brought me here is the desire to better myself in these fields, and learning about others as well.

Could someone tell me what kind of platform this is? Is it supposed to be a mix between stackoverflow and medium?

Cheers!

Hey all, I'm a new devops engineer coming from the systems/networking side of the IT world. I am seriously motivated to expand my knowledge into development to both further my career and get some of the hundreds of ideas in my head created. I am currently trying to learn Javascript and expand on my PowerShell knowledge. I would also like to learn some Ruby just because I think its a useful language and can do a lot of great things.

Stumbled upon this website doing a quick google search for general dev forums and it looks like exactly what I was looking for. I am usually quite active in communities that I enjoy and hope to help and learn from everyone on this site!

Hi!
I'm Daniel. I'm a senior dev/consultant that's doing their best to live up to the title.

I'd love to solidify my skillset and streamline my workflow. At the moment, everything feels 'effortful' (oppose to being effortless).

Trying to balance work & fun in developing, I'm losing passion my passion for problem-solving. Everything feels like a task, instead of something I enjoy.

I wish to resolve this. Would DEV be helpful? We'll see!

Hope to get to know you all!

Hello, everyone! Peace be upon y'all! My name is Mansoor Ahmad, but my online pseudonym in Crescive Delta! I'm a teenager who really likes front-end development and am doing my best to learn it as well as I can. Currently, I know HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript (up to ES6, but not all the features).

Currently, I'm learning React and planning to learn CSS Grid & Flexbox as well. I also plan to finish learning all the new JavaScript features, like async & await and so forth, so that I don't have too much trouble developing UIs in React. I also plan to start writing on publications like Medium & Dev.to so that I can expand my knowledge base while teaching others as well.

I love programmer humor, food, and coffee. If you guys have any of those at your disposal, feel free to tweet me @Crescive10.

Happy coding to everyone!
