Hello everyone,

I’m Mina, a Java developer turned C# developer. Although I’m a senior at my work, I still feel like there’s so much to learn. I think that’s the beauty of programming — constant learning.

I also blog on my spare time and am learning React natve. I’ve always dreamed of publishing an app but never really got around to it. I now focus more on writing on my blog (craftedserendipity.com) and programming.

My manager sent me an article from dev.to about code reviews. It piqued my interest so much that I decided to join the community.

Excited to learn from passionate, like-minded people, and to contribute my ideas and experiences to the community. :)

how to create oop in Lua-language

Hi Khairi, unfortunately, I have not tried programming in Lua yet. But, object-oriented programming is a type of programming design. It's kind of based on what the language is catered to.

So, in OOP, we can create classes and relate them to real-world entities. That is okay for, say, Java or C#. But in C, we can't do that because C language doesn't have classes.

Maybe you can apply the OOP Concepts in Lua language. These concepts include polymorphism, encapsulation, etc. Click here for more information on OOP. :)

Hi-ya everyone! My name's Spencer and I mostly do [ actually only do, really ] Javascript stuff. I'm currently trying to learn backend stuff as I've really only ever done things with frontend code. My favorite frontend framework has to be Vue.js, and I'm excited to learn GraphQL.

I came to DEV.to after finding it either through Twitter or Product Hunt, I forget which. The design of the website stood out to me though, and the community here seems great! So, yeah... Here I am :)

Hi everyone,
I'm Helen and i'm a junior dev in JS in a french start'up. I'm working on React (I tried vuejs too but I felt in love with react). I finished school in november 2018 so I've got lots of stuff to learn, discover... I'm enjoying my new work (I was a comics bookseller for 5 years) and I discover Dev.to on march 8th for International Women's day with "Nevertheless she coded".
I'm really happy to discover this community :)

Hi everyone, I'm Chris. I've been doing front end development for a long time, focused more on HTML/CSS/jQuery, with a little backend dev, a little UX and a little mobile app development thrown in. I've specialized in creating accessible sites lately, learned a lot about the WCAG 2.X guidelines.

I recently found this site through a couple of developers that I followed on Twitter. My coworkers mostly use Microsoft Teams to communicate.

Hey, my name is Cedric. I was brought here from Twitter after doing a follow blitz of developers (Ali Spittel, Ire Aderinokun, and Sara Soueidan just to name a few). I wanted another avenue to learn from like-minded individuals beyond my job. I currently acquired a Javascript cert. after only having working experience with it and jQuery for 9 years.

My coworkers mostly communicate in person and on slack. Majority of our conversations involves who's buying the office cookies next and funny gifs.

Hey there! I prefer messaging people, but I always intend for the messages to be asynchronous. We as a team strive for async communication, and no one is expected to respond immediately. It's a great way to stay focused and get things done, while talking with one another when needed.

Hellooo :)

I've been a software engineer for over 14 years, focusing on javascript for a little over 10 years now. I've also recently become a Pluralsight author. I'm joining Dev.to so that I can get some technical content out there, and hopefully help someone with a problem they're trying to solve, just like so many articles out there have helped me get to where I am today. I'd love to write more articles about things that I'm working on, and I really like reading content on dev.to.

I'm a Web/iOS developer and up-and-coming data scientist wrapping up my M.S. in Data Science in 7 weeks!

Hi, everyone.

I'm Al (that's with an L, as in AL, not an I as in Artificial Intelligence). What brought me here was Opera Developer. I switch browsers monthly so I can experience each one as a heavy user. Opera is using Chromium so it's not all that far from Chrome (or soon, Microsoft Edge). Next month it's Safari's turn.

I'm a web developer with a fairly large local government in the US. In my spare time I teach a front-end class at a college, volunteer with Red Cross Disaster IT, volunteer with Creative Mornings breakfast lectures, and try to keep my son from overthrowing the world.

Hello,

I am new to programming (2-3 months) and looking for a home. My 12-week code boot camp is nearly over. It gave me a handle on the basics of HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, Linux, and PHPMyAdmin/MySQL. Currently, I am trying to learn Bootstrap to help me in the front-end (I'm terrible at design). I want to learn a library and a framework. My next programming language is Python, I hope!

Hello, looking to pick up some new practices that can be used for various forms of system development. This is with a goal of towards a move from old school sysadmin to devops by simplifying scripts and configs.

I have done some python and bash which I have running on a day by day basis. Dipped my toes in Docker, Swarm, LXC & Kubernetes and a little bit of Golang.

I need to get proficient at development. I've been following Dev on Twitter for sometime. I thought I'd actually use it as my daily news feed now.

So hello... any pointers or advice would be great.

Hi! everyone,

I'm David from Mexico city. I studied Communication Science and became over the years more interested in Software development. I have worked for 10 years in the e-learning industry.

I enjoy writting things in Python, Javascript and Php, in a more functional way. I like Functional Programming alot.

Currently, i'm trying to learn about reactive programming and the common design ideas that we can find between OO and Functional programming styles. Also i find OO Design Patterns a very interesting topic.

I spend time in self-paced learning things about NodeJs, React, GraphQL and Django.

I'm really happy to join this awesome community.

Georg ↵

Hi everyone,

my name is Georg. I am a career changer and I would call myself a "part time" web-developer. One part of my job is to create websites (mostly in WordPress). But I also work with other CMS like Adobe Experience Manager (I just do the content management, not the programming). I started with HTML, CSS, SCSS...and some JavaScript. I haven't graduated from high school or university and had the first 30 years of my life nothing to do with programming or computer specific topics. Therefore I feel like I sometimes need a little longer to understand certain concepts. :-)

For me, programming is fun and I am always curious about new things. #JavaScript and #NodeJS are my main topics at the moment.

I like a lot of posts here on DEV. That's why I am here. I am more likely a reader/consumer than a writer, maybe it's because english is not my native language (obviously). But I like to share good content and who knows, maybe someday I will write a useful article too. ;-)

Nice to be here...

Hi everyone!

Adrian here. I'm writing tools and .... more tools, for developers.
The latest one: a Full-Stack web app generator.
Basically, the developer receives a UI-Ready Web App in React, Vue.js bundled with Laravel, express or Flask in the backend.

I was writing this tool because @Github is full of starters with no support or usable UI-Kit.

Thank you! :)

Got bitten by a bug to be a dev creating beautiful, useful apps & services.

Flutter, Firebase, Angular, Python, Django, a vast variety of intelligent APIs and cloud backends have all made it very attractive to jump right it!
