Hi all - I'm Melissa and I really love the web! I get excited about CSS and web animation and all the things frontend! I'm working currently at as a frontend dev at an agency in right smack in the middle of the US. There aren't a ton of other devs out this way, so it's great to meet some new folks!


Hi Guys My name is Muhammad
I am currently studying CS and living in NY
My stack is Python C++ and JavaScript
I have worked with MEAN stack in the past
My hobbies included cycling, photography or learning something
I am currently working on Image Recognition App and Teaching Full Stack Web Development
I am actively looking for summer internships
I love to use dev.to for me its great place to ask questions and I found dev.to using twitter


Hi, my name is louise. I am new in programming field. Recently, I have been delving into micro:bit programming. I want to learn more while sharing my micro:bit program with you. Hope you will like me!


Yay! I found dev.to from the CNC2018 first mission for the blog more track that I am on. I am surprised I hadn't found it before - what a great set of resources.

  • I live in Japan, just south of Tokyo
  • I am an indie developer with ongoing iOS app and web projects
  • My biggest project this year is a service for gifting - I am using react and redux for front end, node and mongodb for back end with a little help from about a million packages and services
  • I have a goal to publish 12 apps (broadly defined) in 12 months in 2018

12 apps in 12 months?? Excellent!! :)

That is almost like the #1GAM Challenge that I read about. You create 1 game in 30 days, and you keep going; so that would be 12 games a year. :)

Creating is such fun isn't it? :)


12 apps in 12 months?!?! Wow - that's a great goal!
Best wishes :)


Good luck with the goals. It's my first time on the site and it definitely looks interesting.

I'm working in react and redux as well. (Love your gh handled :D)


Hello! Name's Mike. Currently working in Finance and trying to escape into JavaScript development! Been learning for about 6 months in my spare time. Lots of python and html/CSS before that - Django and such. Now I'm thoroughly enjoying mongodb, express, react/redux, and docker. Dabbling a bit in react-native, but might hold off until I can add more to my portfolio.

Find me on github, check out my website (mctdev.org), give me some tips! I'm full steam ahead on improving and starting my career in development.


Hi everyone, my name is Andrea. I'm a psychology student from Lima, Perú. Yes, maybe my career it's not directly related to the programming field, but I consider it one of my new hobbies, just like graphic design. I hope this year I can learn so much about HTML, Java, Python and CSS.

I'll keep searching online courses! See you!


Hola Andrea!

There are lots of people with all sorts of backgrounds in dev.to like you :)

I've taken a few online courses at Udacity for web Front End Development, Java and Android already and I found them to be quite fun. Even tho they offer paid courses, you can filter them in the Catalog section to only show you the Free ones so you can have a taste of how they teach.


There's github.com/prakhar1989/awesome-cou..., which is not comprehensive, but might help you get going in fields you might be interested in.


Howdy! Have been coding since 2000 and I've not grown bored yet. It's more than a hobby for me; it's how I earn my living. Aside from coding, my other hobbies include raising chickens, camping, fishing and kayaking.


Hi everyone! My name is Chris McKay. I've been in the industry since 1999. I've been in my current full-time job for nearly seven years. For that work I currently work in Java, ColdFusion, Angular and a little React. It's fun and I enjoy working there.

In my spare time I'm managing my mobile business. I've been doing that since 2004. It would definitely be my passion project. Currently I'm working on major software updates for my Android, Windows and server-side components. Hopefully soon I'll be deploying to iOS and MacOS.

Outside of development I enjoy spending time with my family. I also love playing video games, reading and just being outside.

I've only recently found dev.to, but I'm enjoying most of the articles here. It's nice finding others who share some of the same passions I do.


Even though we're growing fast, we're pretty new. A lot of folks only recently found us.

Hi Dev.to community!

I've been a passive observer of dev.to for a while now and I really love what I've seen. It's a great community and I'm happy to officially join.

The first website I built was in 1998 and I've been doing it ever since. I'm now the CEO of Sitecast and we have a full spectrum of web development tools available. It's been an exciting ride.

Hopefully, I'll find the time to write about my experiences and share my knowledge for newer devs.

Thank you for allowing me to join!

I love to Integrate systems, REST APIs, Testing and some writing on my sites JavaStreets and UnitTesters. I am here to learn more and interact with other awesome developers around.

So, Good to see you all!


Hey there! Welcome to dev.to!

Feel free to leave a comment if you have a question about how to use the site. We use Markdown for all things written.

Also, now that it's almost one month from the new year, what are some things you did that you wanted to do? Anything else you're wanting to do but blocked on? Let me know!


Hello everyone! Quite happy to be here. I'm a beginner, aspiring frontend developer. Already know some HTML and CSS. Also have read Kyle's 'You Dont Know JS' ;-) well that's about all.
Would love to learn enough to be able to start freelancing


Hi Anthony! This is late coming :) but good to see you around DEV. It's been awhile since you've written this post - are you still an "aspiring" frontend developer? Or are you now working in the field?


Hello, my name is Luis. I came to this forum via the posted Sandi Metz AMA on Twitter: dev.to/sandimetz/im-sandi-metz-ask...

Related to Sandi's work, my interest is in generative art and I'm currently going through the Propane source code (a Ruby wrapper of Processing). That project's creator lists both of Sandi's books as recommended reading.

My background is in graphic design. I went to art school but always have been interested in computers, programming and how they are leveraged for creative works. After hitting a few walls teaching myself to program over the years I took a Ruby bootcamp. I love Ruby as well as Lisp and using Emacs.


What's up, name is Zane, currently work as a sysadmin hoping to transition to a web dev role in the coming year or so. Pretty much have an interest in everything computer related or programming related, but focus is on full stack web dev.

I also love metal music, the outdoors, cartoons and batman :P


Hello, I am Jean-Christophe Helary.
Living in Japan, country side. A translator-localizer for about 20 years, on Mac stubbornly. I started a Mac for Translators blog 10 years ago and after a 6 years lapse I decided to resume working on it last September. I mostly talk about automation with a focus on translation related processes, but not only.

I learned basic on a Sinclair ZX81 a long time ago, then assembly on that same machine, then Pascal and Prolog on a university Amstrad CPC64 machines, then databases on FoxPro on Windows 3.1, then HTML pretty much when the thing started. Then I stopped for a long while, and I restarted learning with AppleScript and hopefully Lisp and a few other things in the years to come.

I discovered dev.to thanks to CNC2018:more blog. It looks like a nice place.


Hello! My name's Steve, and it's been years since my last... Oh, wait. Wrong venue. I'm a programmer & writer based outside Toronto - Canada. Owner @ Alignsoft.com . Writer & Curator @ 365tomorrows.com ; a new SciFi flash fiction story daily. Coffee & solar powered. Working mostly in Angular 2 at the moment, trying to wrap my head around webpack.


👋 Hello friends!
I've been lurking for a few months, but finally decided to follow advice and come do an intro and participate in this community. I'm a Developer Advocate at Algolia and am obsessed with web performance. I love to find new creative ways to highlight data or bring projects to life that I randomly come up with whilst drinking wine. 🍷

I live in Denver, CO (woo, woo!) but travel a lot. Right now I've been doing JavaScript, JavaScript and oh hey, more JavaScript. I'll probably talk about that and other cool things I'm working on like DinosaurJS! Hit me up if you want to chat at all. Now that this post is done, I can officially say, I am not a cat. 😻


Hello World

  • I am a programmer.
  • My name is Sandesh Soni.

  • I am here to learn how to improve my productivity including IDE skills.

  • I write code in Ruby, Elixir and Reactjs

  • I am interested in chatbots, Single Page applications and SAAS

    Its great to meet more folks here.


Hi, everyone! My name's Guillermo. (can either call me 'Memo' or 'Will', choose your poison)

I got here by chance and liked all the articles I read so far, so I decided to join.

I'm a python enthusiast, and I'm here for all the learning and meeting.

Let me know if I can be of assistance to anything or if you have any questions I can (maybe) answer.


Hi folks. My name is Odilon.
I'm currently a student at National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan.
I love web development (Symfony with PHP, Flask with Python, Ruby ...) and web security. I discovered dev.to on Facebook and I really enjoy reading your posts.
I hope I can learn more and interact with other developers here.


Hello! My name's Roberto Góngora but I kinda like being called Robert when I'm talking with english-speaking friends (I dunno, the 'o' sounds kinda weird to me in english)

I've been learning about web development since I was like 10 y/o, I remember grabbing my older brother's Club Nintendo magazines and reading about "how to make your own Mario Kart website!" -- they had basic HTML guides on how to create a <table> based website with the character selection screen.

Fast forward a few years (I'm currently 27 y/o) and I consider myself to be a full-stack PHP developer with some sysadmin knowledge (as of right now, being a sysadmin is my full-time job and I'm always learning new tricks).

I've been lurking around this site for a while now, I stumbled upon it while reading about the Ionic framework and PWA's and how this awesome site was the fastest one out there, and I was -amazed- by its speed, and now by its community.

I look forward to know more fellow devs and I'll try to lend a hand whenever I feel like I have enough knowledge about a topic!

Hello everyone! I've just found this site from Medium, and it looks very exciting to me. I am a web developer from Melbourne, just down under!

Hi everyone!

I'm Vasile and I've been coding for over 7 years now. I'm currently working as PHP back-end developer for an agency in California. Recently I've been diving into the Laravel framework, as well as the Vue.js front-end framework, and so far I really enjoy trying them out.

I've never posted any blog posts or tutorials online, but as every other dev I found myself dealing with issues/discoveries everyday, and I'd really love to share my findings with the dev community out there (even if somebody posted the same thing somewhere else already). I've been looking for a platform where I can do that, and I found dev.to. I really like the simplicity and overall user experience here 👏, so I guess I'm going to stick with it and posts some articles as well as reading some good ones from you guys (I'm pretty sure there are plenty of them here 🤓). I'm really glad I can become a part of this online community! 🎉


Hi all. My name is Miguel but everybody call me Mike.
I'm currently study about clean code and how applying in PHP with Laravel, Sass, Vue. So if you know a good practice please share to me. I'll start a blog to share everything I learn applying it in demos


Hi, my name is André and I'm 20 years old. I'm a student/developer from Mexico, I do Web and mobile development. I found Dev.to on Facebook, and I've been reading these posts for 6 months, but today I decided to open my account because I want to participate more in this great community!


Hello everyone! I'm a schoolboy. I recently found dev.to, and it is interesting! Here are many awesome articles! I'm mostly interested in programming languages like C++, Python, stuff for web like HTML, CSS, JS, related things, cryptography, and technical things (e.g. electronics) in general. I like physics and hope someday I'll create a physical simulation program. I'd like to meet new people, though I'd like to stay anonymous, nevertheless it doesn't mean I will always be anonymous. What's not secret is that I'm from Russia and my hobbies some of which are listed above. I hope you'll like me!


Hello all, I'm not a professional developer but enjoy coding and learning from those better than me. I tend to use python and R for most of my dabbling and am getting to grips (or trying to) with Bayesian statistical computation.


Hello everyone, I'm Gene from the Philippines. I always get fascinated about almost everything in the tech world. I believe it is the place where the future is being built and being part of that motivates me.

Got here via an article that talked about getters and setters. ;)


I've been programming since I was 13 and currently work at the R&D department of a company that makes compilers.

I get paid for code I write in C++ which I'm not terribly fond of (python's nicer) but I'm alright with most languages. Whatever pays for beer and running shoes, I guess.

From there, I heard about dev.to and it seems like a great place to read, write, and get and give support! Looking forward to working with you all :)


Hi guys, my name is Nando, from Italy.
I'm an old developer (aged 65, retired) but I'm yet studying a way for generating business apps with a declarative approach; the boilerplate code should be generated and integrated by few user code.
I'm oriented toward an all-javascript solution (Nodejs on server, Vue on client) and an Event Sourcing paradigm implementation; I've come here following a search about blockchain, that I would use as event store.
Please excuse my poor English, I've not studied it at school.
Have nice days

Hi everyone. I’m a programmer and co-founder of Firmhouse. We’re a Dutch company that help large companies innovate and launch new products and propositions by using principles of experimentation and iteration. Last year was a very “business-heavy” year for me, where my CTO role got backgrounder a bit. I’m now picking up again on tech, programming and growing our development team and the technologies we use. Part of this change is that I started blogging and contributing to open source projects again. For this reason, very interested in participating in this community too. Looking forward to it :)

I'm a Java fan. I like to break the stigma that has given the enterprise world to Java and give to know frameworks, technologies, and features that make it an awesome language. I hope to be useful for all.


Hi all! My name is Ewald van Veen. I live in The Netherlands and I'm learning more and more about CSS (Grid!) and JavaScript these days, hopefully to find a job as a web developer in the future.

One of my goals for 2018 is to blog more about stuff I'm working on, so hopefully I can contribute to this community and meet some new people :-).


Hi all! My strange and not regular name is Drozerah, I’m the kind of curious person always trying to discover the hidden part of reality or things. As first part of my earth trip I became a scientist in chemical stuff, then a musician who turned to be an independent journalist, pushed to the web side of the information production story, which is the place where I started HTML/CSS/JQuery coding since 2010 in the open source way of thinking... Last year I decided to go deeper into vanilla JS with the realistic goal to reach a full stack state of myself with my new friends Node.js, Nosql DB and so one... Pride to be here with you as a French developer to improve and get new skills!


Hello Friends,

My self Falguni Ganatra. I am the Founder and MD of eBizTrait Technolabs – A Mobile Application Development Company. I have total 11+ years’ experience in IT. Working in PHP, specialized in Mobile Apps, Shopify, BigCommerce, Prestashop, Magento, Zend, Drupal & core PHP.


Hey all! I'm Daniel a recent college graduate and currently employed Software Engineer working with React, Scala and a whole bunch of APIs! Been a long time lurker on dev.to and hoping to help contribute by sharing some of my own projects and experiences on here over the coming days :-)


Hey there. I'm currently finishing up school as a CS major with Web Dev/Design emphasis. I was brought here after I found an article describing something in better detail than I had been able to find elsewhere (using the fetch API with async/await in JavaScript, rather than the typical promises I had been taught in class). I look forward to gaining a better understanding from all y'all.


Hey all!

I'm Darryl, I've been developing for over a decade now (time really does fly). For the entire duration, I've been freelancing do satisfy my entrepreneurial spirit! I do the bulk of my work on the UI but consider myself a javascript dev. Worked with a lot of big and small companies, and started a few things myself. Nowadays I want to get more into sharing knowledge. I've been a long time lurker and now figured I'd contribute :)


Hey everybody!!

I'm Jeff and I have always been a creator of sorts at heart. I've been gearing to create with code, and with several false starts, here I am, back at it. I find that following the #100daysofcode really helps me stay on track.

I have been learning Python. I've tried C and C++, but fell in love with Python as soon as I starting coding in it.

I have created some cool projects that I have worked on alongside my training; an NPC Generator for an rpg called Mythic Hero, as well as a combat game that utilizes the NPC generator. I will continue to work on these all throughout my training and beyond.

My favorite way to learn is by doing. I can only read so much, or watch so many videos before I've got to get my hands dirty.

Anyways, happy to be here. Happy coding everyone!! :)


Hi! I'm Ernesto, from the north of Mexico.
I just graduated from college but I've been working in software development for a year in my current job, mostly on web, and another year and a half in web development with CMSs like WordPress, Joomla and such.
Been reading dev.to for a while but I just decided to log in.
Looking forward to learn from everyone around here.


Hi, everyone. I noticed that I kept coming to dev.to over and over again for months so I created a profile, but I still don’t know what am I doing here. I guess I’m trying to get better at Python. Cheers!


Hi! Almer here.

Not entirely sure how I got here but so far I'm having fun with the site.

Currently working with the Serverless framework for AWS. Also, been using a lot of Apache Spark before I got into deep web development, career-wise. But hoping to get even deeper with both web and ML / AI.

Mostly here to be able to connect to people aside from my peers. Cheers!


Hello, all.

I'm a Front End Dev & UI Designer, working for Zalando in Dublin, Ireland.

I really really really love building UIs with Node and React and have recently been obsessing over building React component libraries that can be kept in sync with Sketch libraries and the amount of room to improve productivity tools for designers & developers.

My github profile is available here: github.com/markmur - and will feature a lot more work soon when I get around to open-sourcing it.

My website is available here: markmurray.co - it was built with React and Firebase and the code can be found here github.com/markmur/markmurray.co for anyone interested.


Hi friends, family and fellow star flakes.

Im a big web geek. I write JS and build react apps. I aim to grow into a professional, one-stop shop full-stack web app developer.

Lets learn, laugh and grow together!


Hi. I'm mostly a front-end developer, with a design background and some back-end experience.

At the moment I work full-time as a senior interactive developer for a creative agency in London, and have been working with web development for 9 years - for agencies and as a freelancer. I work most of the time with JavaScript (Vanilla JS, ES6, NodeJS, React) and CSS/Sass. Most experienced developing websites, some experience with webapps, games and other mostly interactive/creative stuff.

I am looking into expanding into new territories, like doing more server-side work, learning data-science, machine learning/deep learning, blockchain and smart contracts. I know some Python which I find really cool.

I also love music and work as a professional guitar player (mostly jazz but other stuff too).

That's it!


Hi, I'm Benito, I found Dev.to, because a lot of people is writing very interesting articles =) ...I work as a software developer, I write code mostly in ruby, I am from México =)... and I try to play the trumpet =)


Hi, my name is Charles, I love coding and solving problems. When I was a kid, I always try to fix things that got spoilt even if I don't know how to do it, yeah!! "It ended up in the trash". I focus more on backend development but recently I started learning React Native. I spend most of my time on the internet reading articles and blogging.


Hello all - I'm Abed, I graduated last spring as a Computer Engineer Bachelor. I'm from Russia though I grew up in Lebanon (Middle East). I've been into Dev world since I was in school when VB6 was pretty new. And since then I've been learning and wandering. During these years I shifted interests several times from Low Level Pic Assembly, to Desktop Apps (VB.net), to Linux bash and python, to virtualization, and lately I'm into freelancing and into web and mobile development. And I aim to become a software architect in the next few years, until I gather the right pieces and gain enough experience :)

I have found the practicalDev from its facebook page couple weeks ago and since then I'm here everyday. I find it interesting, eye opening, and fun here. and I hope I can be a part of this great community :)

Hello everyone!
My name's Alex and I'm currently working on API/Applications maintenance for a Czech company (mostly using Oracle SQL, Weblogic, Apache and so on). I've started coding a little for some work projects (I'm coming from a Humanistic background), so using some shell scripting, VBA, PHP, JS (some Java as well but had to abandon it for the moment).
Learning a lot while doing it, I've got the taste of it and liked to continue this way, it's quite fun!
I hope to learn even more from the community!

Hey everyone, I'm Perry, pretty new to development and live in Washington DC.

Hello everyone! My name is Tarik and I come from Bosnia and Herzegovina. Almost done with my studies and going strongly for the degree! However, for almost two years now I'm in Web Development business. I've a portfolio that holds roughly 10 websites and web applications combined, not counting the amateur logo's and web designs.
Currently I'm under a remote contract with an IT company where I mostly do websites, which is, at the moment of writing, becoming dull. I also teach two courses (WordPress and HTML/CSS) locally in my town (Mostar!) and freelancing on Upwork.

I knew about dev.to for some time now, but I just realised that I need a group of people helping me get out of this slump!
I want to start doing my own applications, but you know how it is when you're student and you want to make make money so you can SPEND money (wink). Kidding aside, I'm working mostly because I love it, but also because I enjoy having my money. All of this doesn't give me the time to work on something I'm really attracted to.
This started as a introducing post, but ended up as a confession :) I just feel that I could share this here with you.

Hoping to hear some advices or suggestions from kind community like this one (:

Greetings from sunny Mostar!

I've got some background with RoR, HTML, CSS, JS, and am about to embark on a Computer Science program over the next 6 months where I'll be deep diving into UI, JavaScript, React, Python, Django, and C (among others). Pretty stoked to start working on this side of the fence, and glad I found y'all!
