Hi there 👋

I'm a self-taught coder, always learning, no CS degree. When I started 3 years ago, I had a hard time feeling overwhelmed by all the concepts I should learn.

Now, I'm working on a project that allows people to teach coding live to each other and learn together. I would love to connect with y'all!

Hi Everybody!
I started coding on mainframes back in the early 70's. Then 30 years later I started managing coders. (yes I'm old, but I love to be challenged!)
4 months ago (after managing our production company for 7 years) I started learning Python, Flask, MySQL, and WTForms so I could convert the current companies production/repair records from Excel Spreadsheets to a web based database application.
I have made real progress but still have a bucket-load to learn. I was struggling with having a single form that had 3 parts (always needed data and 2 parts that were not needed based on if the associated option was included in the hardware). That search led me here. But the potential solution I found here wasn't adopted. I ended up choosing a different approach which seems to work. (more testing eminent)

Hi All,
I'm a Java developer working mostly on developing REST web services. I'm mostly working on developing financial applications. I'm currently very passionate about functional programming and applying it in Java. Because I created my very first blog post: dev.to/mare_milenkovic/how-do-i-be....
I'm excited to learn with all of you and share the knowledge.

For over a year developing high performance websites and focusing on accessibility for people with disabilities whatever it may be. Every day I am improving myself using sites such as LightHouse, PageSpeed, WebDev and Acessibilidade.gov as metrics. I am a front-end developer and I want to specialize in the basics to give value to my words.

Hey everyone, new here. I really enjoy web dev with nodejs and javascript and also systems programming with Rust. Just finished a project with nodeJS + Electron that allows you to organize all of your steam games and emulators and launch them from one application seamlessly. It has box art, video previews, and works out of the box with retroarch libretro cores. If you wanna check it out it's on my github page. github.com/wiired24/NostalgiaJS

Aside from that I also have been falling in love with the Rust Programming language as of late. Got some future projects I wanna write in Rust, one of which being a emulator for the NES and the other being a small hobby operating system in Rust. Future technologies I'm most interested in would probably be typescript and web assembly. I'm excited to join this community of fine developers. I look forward to writing some very interesting posts.

Hi everyone, I come here the first time, hope to get familiar from you soon. I am from China, an old hand, with more than 20 years of IT experiences, in virtually all fields. Currently I am focusing on designing ICs for telecommunications, particularly modulation and demodulation, in VHDL, Verilog, python, java, MatLab, C and more. Enjoy the community!

Hi all,

I’m a mathematician who studies game theory. Most of the software development I learnt was from contributions to the axelrod which is a neat project for studying the prisoners dilemma.

I also teach programming with mathematics and mathematics with programming so I’ll probably be writing about that at sort of stuff.

Always looking to learn what I don’t know I don’t know. 😊

In my free time I like to throw frisbees for my dog.

Hi all! As a user of the Superproductivity app, I came here because I stumbled upon a few articles by its creator, all of which appeared here. I decided to create an account, and it seems I might actually like it.

Let's see how deep this rabbit hole is!

Hi! 👋

I like to describe myself as a regular of the Tutorial Hell Inn, where knowledge abounds, eddies, and leaks—a voluntary regular, that is, as I really enjoy learning. I am a self-taught dev, although that term feels slightly wrong as most of what I've learned has come from the community.

Coding and writing fiction are two things I love, and after lurking and learning from this site for a long time I thought I would join and see what happens if I combine the technical aspect of coding with the reading ease of fiction—plus some bad comedy—in my posts. The outcome can only be disastrous.

That's mostly it! I would love to connect with all of you.

Have a wonderful day!

Hi, developers!

I am a self-taught beginner Front-End developer from Russia.
I have started learning JavaScript about 3 months ago.
My start journey was hard.
this, closure, prototypes - I keep learning these hard parts now.

After JavaScript, I want to learn React and find my first job.
I hope, at the end of my journey I don't get an undefined || null. 😄

// sorry for my English.

Hey! I'm currently going through Flatiron School's software engineering program. I've loved technology my entire life, pretty literally (my mother would tell you I was on the family computer since I was born). My blogs here will be mainly about the projects I do with the program, as well as any interesting topics I wanna talk about.
