I'm Yuichi, from Japan living in Montreal, Canada.

I am software engineer at a startup using Node.js with Typescript, some Python, Angular, Docker, and microservice stuff. For my private time, I'm having fun using and learning other stack like Go (Golang), React, Ruby on rails, Blockchain, Machine Learning, etc. I like learning new stuff!

My previous jobs before becoming software engineer were Sales/Marketing rep, Translator, etc. I studied Business/Economics in University.
I have learned coding via YouTube, blogs, codecademy, freecodecamp, and googling around.

I speak Japanese, English, and some French. I love travelling, playing various sports and working out, and cooking!
Nice to meet you all :)

I'm an economist that does and teaches data analysis. I use mainly D, R, and Bash, with some Ruby, Perl and a few others mixed in as needed. I started programming in the 1980s on computers with 1K and 2K of RAM. At last count, I've used over 50 languages, and am a strong believer in functional programming.

🌿Hello, my name is Weiwei and I'm a newbie coder building a product a month with Javascript and no code tools!

I studied interaction design in college and realized that it's so much more fun if I can build out the design ideas that I have.

Awesome! I am always down for a list of articles or books to read. Been reading through Refactoring UI and Sprint: How to Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in Just Five Days for UX readings. Any other suggestions?

What sort of projects are you working on?

I really liked " the best interface is no interface". I think the best way to practice interface design is to make one a day, and try to expand on the interface by making all interfaces for an app/product. For experience design, diagrams are often a good way to map things out. See dubberly.com/articles/using-concep...

I'm working on a series of generators that are web-based. Like upload a photo and change the size of those photos or paragraph generators.

Thread Thread

I will definitely dig into the recommended readings!

Let me know if you have any questions that are javascript related. Some recommended tools I have used in the past are Egghead.io, any courses by Wes Bos, or if you have specifics stack overflow. But a lot of learning to code is pushing through and practicing. Experiencing errors and reaching out for help when you get stuck! The projects you are working on sound like they will definitely be challenging and should be great for learning some important concepts!

Hey all! I'm a full stack developer with over 8 years experience in consulting and working with SaaS based companies.

I work actively with Golang, AWS, GCP, and Typescript and absolutely love my work 😊.

Currently, I'm doing a bit of soul-searching to find a new project to build and profit from.

Preferably SaaS type offerings. I like working with products that help other developers do better at what they already do.

Who are the best women to follow in this community (in your opinion)? Not trying to get into a battle of the sexes but I've only ever worked with men and damn is it nice to read what my demographic is writing.

Welcome to DEV! I'm attempting to learn Rust and Web Assembly, but have not quite made an effort yet... Also, I've been learning what it's like to build websites for your family. Not super fun, but it's probably a good introduction to building things for others.

hola me gusta mucho esta comunidad y me uní por que me encanta estar conectada con gente que le apasiona lo mismo que a mi, la programación. Soy ingeniera en sistemas computacionales y actualmente estoy aprendiendo python, aunque me he dado cuenta que mi lógica de programación no anda muy bien así que también ando dándole duro a eso. Muchas gracias por aceptarme

Kacper Goliński • Edited on

Hi there!

I'm Kacper, currently living in Gdańsk, Poland. Self-thought programmer, graduated in Civil Engineering.

I'm working fully remotely as a full-stack engineer for the UK based startup. On a daily basis, I'm using React, Typescript, Ruby, and Elixir with a bit of Docker.

Recently, I've decided to resume working on my old side project (datamaps.co, github.com/caspg/datamaps.co). I'm planning to keep a dev log which will document my journey. I hope dev.to could be the right place for it.

Hi guys! I'm Hendrik, I don't code, I write concepts. So I'm interested in various meta-topics rather than concrete programmers work. (But at least I manage to maintain my personal website on self-hosted WP basis…)
Any recommendations for followings?

Hello! I'm a Full Stack JS developer.

I love learning all about this universe so much that it's already my hobby :D

I have experience working with Laravel, NodeJS, React Native, Flutter, Angular, Ionic and other things, but I think my intention in this forum is to learn how other developers write their code, what stack they are using, what is the best architecture. for each project ... I have so many questions and I am sure that there are many developers with more experience here than me and maybe can give me advices about React, ReactNative, NodeJS good practices.
So Thanks a lot!
