Hey! I'm Tiffany and I am a frontend dev from Toronto. I am currently working at a startup and also looking for new opportunities. I am a fairly new dev and just trying to navigate through this industry, spoiler alert, it's kind of hard! I started out trying to do full-stack but found that I was spreading myself too thin and I had more of an interest in frontend so that is what I am focusing my energy on now. I look forward to being part of this community, sharing, and learning from you all!

Hey Tiffany, great to meet you! 👋🏻

What kind of stuff do you find yourself using most in your front-end work? I’ve always struggled with front-end, so I’d love any insight you have!

Hey, nice to meet you too! I use React most of the time, it makes frontend a lot more fun for me because you can really just get going with building interactive things. I have also begun using SASS for my CSS because it can keep things very clean! I definitely have the same feeling towards backend stuff haha

Hey Destiny! Can you share a bit of what Ruby on Rails is used for? I have heard it mentioned it a lot. Thanks and good luck :)

Destiny Aigbe

Hello Rick, I'm glad you asked. Ruby on rails is a web programming framework of the programming language ruby. It is a full stack web framework and it is used to build website. It's about 70 percent back, and 30 percent frontend. So for jobs and internships, it is more of backend they refer to it as.

Hello everyone! I'm Tuana, the Developer Advocate at Cumul.io. My company is based in Belgium but I'm currently working remotely from the UK. I studied Computer Science and then was a full time C++ developer for a while, but am now doing developer advocacy because it satisfies my social side a bit more :) So far I've been writing on our own company blog and medium, but I'm looking to raise more awareness of our platform so hope to share some content here too. And of course, use this space to learn, see some cool projects!

Hey everyone! I'm Ricky and I live in LA. I'm a front-end web developer who has been learning HTML and CSS for two months and is about to start learning JavaScript. What brought me here were the stickers that I kept seeing on Twitter, as I follow a lot of developers there. I just thought wow, where is everyone getting these awesome stickers? And I ended up discovering this very cool community, luckily. :) I'm here to share as I continue to learn web development, start writing some blog posts, and to learn a lot from all of you. Cheers!

Hey everyone! I’m currently a grad student working towards my MSc in Data Science—I did my undergrads in Comp Sci and Mathematics though!

I’m a long-time Python programmer, but I’ve recently been moving on to Rust (which I absolutely adore way more than I ever imagined) and Haskell, and I’m eyeing Scala somewhat longingly. I really enjoy building backend systems and packages, especially stuff that can be used by the FOSS community! And I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for implementing academic-oriented stuff when I can.

One of my biggest guilty-pleasures is in computational logics—in my short PhD stint, I took a course on this and was absolutely enamored! I love learning about different logics and thinking about their applications to concepts, and I really really enjoy the process of drawing out logic proofs. Still haven’t grasped logic programming though—just never wants to fit into my mental model just right. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Long-winded, but hey! It’s me!

Hey! I hope one day I can delve into more comp sci/backend technologies. It interests me so much, but it is a little harder for me to get good at. I look forward to what you have to share :)

"Welcome World".. I'm Danielle, I'm happy to have found DEV! (actually google did but happy to be here lol) - I recently took course in JavaScript, HTML and CSS and it feels awesome to gain all these creative tools to build. (I was a hardcore lego child lol) Although I'm trying to slow down and build a solid foundation, the more I learn the more I want to understand how it ALL works. From what I know of in back-end languages, I'm interested in learning Python, Java, and Ruby but I'm open to all languages. Additionally, learning the structure of frameworks, algorithms and compression. Not sure where to begin, as I'm still deciphering the jargon and learning how to navigate git - feeling a bit lost in it all? I'd like to have an overall understanding how the code comes together to build the platforms, apps, software.. websites we use everyday? So to summarize - I'm learning the puzzle pieces but yet to have that"ah hah" moment in regards to how all the pieces come together. I don't know what I don't know if that makes sense..like the keywords to search in google/youtube lol. Hoping to learn more here and would love any of your input? 🤓🤪

Hello Everyone! I'm Saqib and I am currently working as Senior Engineer at an EMR company. In my current role I look after a team of few developers. Primary development is done in PHP and frameworks (symfony, CakePHP and Zend Framework). Other than that I have working experience in Java, C# .NET and C/C++. I am a big advocate of C/C++ :).

These days I am trying to get my head around Node.js and couple of other JS frameworks to stay up-to-date with the industry. Please feel free to suggest good starting points for JS Frameworks.

Hi! I'm Diego Juodziukynas, a games developer from Argentina. I've been programming games for more than 7 years but on 2019 I started to program a GameBoy emulator as a hobby project. That was such an interesting project that now I'm starting an NES emulator and planning to write a lot about that in here. There are lots of amazing resources about the subject but mainly in english, and since my first language is spanish that's what I'll use in my posts.
I'm really happy to be here to share my experience and read yours.

Hello world. It's my second day using dev.to, it's def catching on and I really enjoy the ease of usage compared to blogging on medium, however it feels very similar to blogging on medium, wordpress latest updates, and also it's a little easier & fells overall "leaner" to get content out there.

Somehow that image upload made me happy and i like how it's a little header service that carries through the content VS having to be within a menu/wizard.

Smart idea that... looks around

'any-who' cool ux kudos aside, im digging this place, a lot.

I wrote a blog already, really enjoyed doing it too; dev.to/itylergarrett/hello-world-w...

Connect w/ me! Excited to network and meet everyone.

Mostly, I'm excited to learn more about data science, computer science, and anything data or machine learning related. Lately I've been plugging away a lot in making automated NEWS feeds via RSS, and eager to do more text mining solutions to benefit end users to potentially help spawn a healthy looking press website that people might want to team up with me to engineer into something valuable. When I'm not consulting in data analytics, I'm managing a desktop app that does task scheduling utilizing electronjs & vuejs, and in closed beta - aim to release in next few weeks once everyone catches up after the recent snow storm in austin/dallas texas area.

I did a bootcamp where I learned React, Express, and some Python basic to get familiar with the syntax (for backend cases).
For the story I started an internship in a company where they use Angular in the Front so it's kinda hard to follow but like I said, they found me with a smile 😊
