Hello :) I have a degree in philosophy and always considered myself rather right-brained, but a few months ago I lost my job (thank you, corona v.)... Making (not so) long story short, for now, I'm totally into web development and UI. I love to learn new things and to make my code work as intended. Life can be very surprising :)
So here I am - a bookworm who loves to draw animals - digging deeper into front-end world, hoping to find a job in IT and meet some nice people.

Hi I am Elias :) I am on dev.to since some days.
I am a former Google Engineer and want to improve my technical writing as well as keep up to date with new tech.

I write about how I got into Google, what Codesphere (why I left Google) does, tech (highly opinonated lol) and whatever stupid idea comes to my mind :)

Looking forward to get to know you all :)

Hello,
Nice to hear from you, just over a week ago-I have just started an online Web Development boot camp course, am on the HTML+CSS path currently, and enjoying the course. Agree that we should learn together.
Where are you located?
Are you self-Learning Web Dev?

Hello, Nice to hear from you, I worked in IT support for almost 5 years, last year was made redundant, and decided to switch to Web Dev am currently learning HTML and CSS, do you have a learning / study plan?, also please share as also would like to make my Portfolio website, I googled to search for mentorship and Web Dev boot camp course/s - but to costly, hence I Joined DEV.IO hoping to learn as much as possible.

I recommend MDN Web Docs for a structured learning plan on Web development. It's sooo useful and it's free! It gives you a basic fundamental understanding of the web and it goes into detail so you can understand everything.
For my portfolio I decided to make it from scratch (without using WordPress, Wix..etc) found these articles helpful:

Tools I used:

  • Adobe XD (for Web design)
  • VS Code (text editor)
  • Git (used Github Pages to host my website)

I believe that you don't need to pay for bootcamps to learn Web Development. All if not most resources are already free available online.
I hope that helps and feel free to ask more questions and i'll try my best to answer.

Hi everyone,

My story ain’t new. Lost my job during Covid-19. Felt depressed and all. Then I decided to try out something new. Started learning coding first via YouTube, then later I got a tutor. I’m still learning Front-end. I hope to utilize this skill and become a great web developer and tech giant someday.

Hi, my name is Dominik and I code mostly in the world's best coding language (Python). My background is strongly mathematical (I hold 2x MSc. in related fields). I have a wide range of interests spanning from coding related to trading on financial markets/cryptocurrencies to topics like automation, RPA, AI, AGI, automated reasoning, machine learning methods, data science, quantum computing, and computer games.

I am going to share here some content regarding either tutorials for some of the named topics or some general (prevalently Python or mathematical) hacks. I will be very happy if you follow me here and on my github github.com/DovaX.

Hello, my name is Jeremy! I'm not really sure what this website is all about yet, but I saw a lot of developers that I follow have an account here. I'd love to have a place to share software development ideas and also learn a lot myself. I've been a full stack developer for around 8 years, and I've recently been expanding my skillset to Data Science. I also consider myself a maker, and love to create things with wood, 3D printing, embedded systems and sewing.
