Trace Harris

Hello Everyone!! My name is Trace! I am an early career developer. Looking for my first paid position. I am currently comfortable with Python, related web frameworks, CSS, and HTML. I have worked in Javascript and the React library, though it has been some time, I am looking to refresh those skills. I am Looking to increase my language knowledge this year and will endeavor to learn Java. I have some project ideas I believe that ML and Natural Language Processing would be the best paradigms to use, though I need to do more research. I am an interest in AR/VR and mobile development. I currently looking to improve my problem solving skill set, as well as foundations in Algorithms, data-structures. Currently volunteering my time and skill set to Code for PDX

Hey, Trace!

I'm pulling up Code for PDX now, but I'm also in the area and would love to find ways to invest in and volunteer with my community with my newly acquired skill set (once I'm out of coding boot camp schedule). I'd love to hear more about your experience with them, how you've been volunteering your time with them, and any other local orgs you've worked with on a volunteer basis :)

Algorithms and data-structures are on my learning list, too, once we've gotten through a React module in my school!

Hope you're well!

Hey everyone, long time Frontend/App developer, new'ish to DevTo (I've read my fair share of articles here).

I speak pretty fluent Javascript, along with frameworks within that ecosystem.
While I'm fairly good with React Native, I'm currently learning Dart/Flutter, SwiftUI & Kotlin to weigh out my options for the best way to create my startup's MVP app.

Looking forward to spreading some of my accumulated knowledge working with startups as well as large corporations as a developer, brush up on my technical skills, and writing updates on creating starting a Startup as a Technical Co-founder.

Fun Fact: I accidentally got into development after Lehman Brothers went down during the '08 financial crisis.

If you want to talk, feel free to hit me up.

Cheers, dude!
I think the hardest part is understanding the intermediate level concepts like Greedy, DP, etc. The dev parts are amazing, and more about just how much time you spend on it. But these "interview prep" things are a bit more tricky. The grind is quite real. I'm at this "plateau" right now in the intermediate level stuff.

If you're in the React stack, take a look at TailwindCSS and Ant-Design. I made the mistake of writing the CSS for every component I made when I was learning front-end and it cost me a lot of time that could be spent having fun and developing cooler stuff.

Hey, all! Brand new to DEV, currently a web & mobile development student at Epicodus Coding School after making a career pivot from bar & events management. (Fun facts - yes, I make a mean beverage, and throw a kick*ss party in a non-covid world.)

As I'm getting into the second half of my school's learning materials, and heading ever-faster to an internship and then - gasp! - the real world again, I'm looking for more community in the industry.

Currently learning - in class: C#, MySQL, PHP. Out of class - Adobe Photoshop & XD, Sass. Attached is a recent project I'm working on while on winter break. The image is a digital painting in Photoshop - my very first foray with the application, in fact. I'm taking the image and using it as a backdrop for a web application that has animated weather elements like snow, clouds, and twinkling stars. :) Link with the finished project on GitHub soon!

Happy to be here, and happy new year, all!

Cheers!

Hola soy Carlos, llegué acá xq m apasiona la VoIP y asterisk. Quisiera ser mi propia pbx y módulo de Call Center. Quisiera hacerla con vue, y nodejs, pero apenas aprendo a programar quiero aprender javascript primero. Cómo me podrían ayudar para aprender javascript? Soy administrador de servidores Linux y he hecho script fabulosos, he visto unos cursos online de fundamentos de javascript y programación pero no han dado en el clavo, los instructores van directos hacer cosas que no se donde la sacan, entiendo que debemos investigar por nuestro propio medio, de eso trata este mundo tecnologíco, pero no sé donde buscar para documentar bien, por eso llegué a dev.to por que me pareció una comunidad muy buena, espero pueden ayudarme y pls, que no sean ejercicios de carritos de ventas, blog y esas cosas repetidas, se que hay cosas más interesantes.

Hello, name is Harper! New to programming I am currently learning Python and considering the possible career paths in web development. I am a singer and guitar player, and prior to the pandemic was making a good living as a musician playing cruise ships. I still love performing, but I'm looking to pivot and apply my mind to the challenging field of computer programming.

While I do have a Bachelors of Applied Science I have very little background coding experience. I took a course called symbolic logic in the philosophy department, as well as a Problem Solving w/ Computers class, both of which I really enjoyed. It introduced me to many of the logical operators we use in programming so that is great to see!

Hi, I'm Alex from San Francisco. I consider myself a student for life. I love to learn.

I'm currently learning some python machine learning because ML really interesting to me. I still consider myself a beginner in python since there's a lot to learn. It's hard for me to stay focused when I'm learning, there's always something else to learn and I spin away trying to learn new things. The hardest part is learning something all the way through.

I'm happy that this place exists where people can help each other out since no one is a master at everything, we're all just passing thru this thing called life.

I love traveling (except for now) and classical music (but also indie/alternative/synth pop/rock music on spotify). I play classical music on violin and piano for fun and just for myself. It's my therapy from looking at code and documentations. I also love to write screenplay scripts for fun on Final Draft, especially spec scripts (screenplays for the fun of it) of my favorite tv show: #Community. And I do my own stories for the heck of it.

I'm also currently setting up a youtube channel. I've noticed that if you want to get good at something (retaining all the knowledge/skills), you have to teach it to other people by teaching yourself as well. And by teaching other people, you understand more of the concepts.

Anyways, good meeting all of you!
