Hey all. My name is Tommy. Im a fullstack dev working as a contractor.
I built a network site for developers to sell their advice over videochat. Basically if someone is in need of help with a bug, they can call you to see if you can resolve it. You as a user can call others or bill for your time to connect.

The site is called p-pl.com
Add me if you want to know more.

Whatsup Asher. It’s running on Next.js framework. We needed some major scalability which Next offered. MongoDB for the backend.

Hey everyone. My name is Tiago and I recently quit my job to focus 100% in bootstrapping my own projects. I am building a climate change app and narrating this journey in a podcast called Wannabe Entrepreneur. In the podcast I speak about my struggles, learnings and chat with other entrepreneurs.

Heyaz! Just got my retraining funds confirmed today after a yearlong knockdown taking-off-earrings-and-turning-rings-around cage match with Worker's Comp here in Canada. Am clawing my way back from severe PTSD from 9 years of frontline mental health work.

Now that I finally have funding support, I gotta study like a mad dog until Feb 6th to learn WordPress and Shopify development, meaning I'm learning JavaScript, PHP, WordPress and Shopify platforms, React, Liquid, and whatever else rolls down the pike.

Vandolf Estrellado

Hi, my name is Vandolf :D

I've been developing software for Android for the past 10 years but I've started off as a full stack web/backend dev using Python/Django + AWS.

I'm looking for a place to start and share my journey on participating in the dev community. I have just been heads down working for almost a decade. I have done zero participation in forums like this. I'm hoping to change that and also hopefully make some friends in the process. I don't really have friends. I'm really introverted. I'm unable to socialize with "normal people". However, I would like to try socializing with "dev people" <3

Apart from entering a community, I'm also looking to enter the world of the open source community. I've been working on a passion project for the past 3 years and now am looking for people to join me. Perhaps create some cool Android apps with it. I already have a few ideas that I'm super excited about hehehe...

Fun fact about myself, I'm very awkward and my sense of humor is... "sarcastic"

I'm learning fundamentals from Codeacademy (how I found this community) and applying for a local college's CompSci program next fall! I have some small prior experience with super basic stuff like pseudocode, but nothing solid. I am hoping to get into the GameDev profession, but am open to other careers as well!

It's a pleasure to meet you all!

Hi there. Currently doing programming stuffs when I was bored (or something like that, you might get my idea). Also, I'm actively making a website for one of my local motorbike store, which is powered by WordPress (maybe these WYSIWYG web editors didn't mean a part of coding and programming). And, of course, I put some CSS code inside there.

Hi everyone. I'm Sam, and I'm a UX Researcher that happens to design. I've also always been inspired and intimidated by software development.

Right now, I'm working with RestQA, an open source API testing platform. We're considering gamifying the testing experience to make it more fun, so I'm really interested in talking to devs and QA peeps to get their experience when it comes to maintaining their API's.

Apart from that, this seems like a great place to chill and learn.

Cheers.
