Thank you, my second day here and feeling happy for becoming a part of this community.
I am trying to share few thoughts on regular expressions with the community by clicking "Create Post" and all I get is pre-formatted space for a photo upload and a title entry. The rest of the screen is blank, no formatting buttons. Is that how it's supposed to be, am I missing some config in my profile or is there a switch I need to turn on?

You've got a text area where you can write, right? That's where we can write in markdown. So it's a much simpler way of writing something akin to HTML.

You can check out this Markdown guide to learn some basic syntax.

Hello to all. I'm here to learn mobile development. I'm studying Jetpack Compose, animations and physics. I didn't found content teaching physics and mobile development. So, I'll share with your writing articles here.

You mean animation physics?

Yes. I'll try getting physics concepts first and try to show where that concept are applied in mobile development. Mainly animations because motion is a known concept.

Hello World, self taught Dev here, recently quit my chef job (well I guess that's fun fact about me, always surprised Devs find that interesting😜, and of course, I've made recipe calculator app that I then used on my job).

I'm now dedicating most of my time (have also to leave time for family etc) to further learning, working on my projects and searching for a job.

At the moment I'm passionately working on fast typing physical keyboard input, it is already working as a proof of concept and am polishing it to be able to put it online in hope that it would trigger some interest.

Got interested in typing long time ago, especially since I've learned touch typing 6 years ago in a week or so, though since I don't really use typing in a kitchen, never really used this skill much. But over the years, whenever I position my fingers on home row, i could touch type, I've didn't forgot it, even though I didn't use it.

So when I started learning Chinese, I've started learning by typing it out, and it works really well, on mobile, I can type rather fast, as I type lot on mobile, but in mobile one can get just as fast.
So I started thinking about how to type faster with both hands on physical keyboard, and this is how idea for this fast typing keyboard was born.

Was working also on other projects, on some with seasoned developers. They also help lot in my learning experience, but greatest help was just by listening my ideas, giving me feedback, and showing me that I can learn writing code on my own.

I've found this platform while looking for ways to network with other Devs and I really like podcasts here.

Typing on mobile: former BlackBerry owner here... those were the times, one could type a novel on it... it was tough to let that device go... I miss my BBerry still...
