Hey, there!

My name is Diana and I haven't published a welcome thread yet. And it seems to me that time has come.) I have been a tech blogger since 2015 and I love my job.)

On Dev, I have already published 44 posts and am going to write another article soon. I'm interested in IoT, blockchain, programming, including technologies, software solutions, and software engineering practices.

Have a nice day to everyone!


With 44 articles written and an interest in software solutions and software engineering practices, can you tell me if Dev has a great indexing method that would allow me to find the exact article I need to read just when I need it? I'm looking for something like Socratic Arts' ExTRA(Experts Telling Relevant Advice) system. socraticarts.com/solutions/technol...


You can search for information by various tags such as devops, techtalks, app dev, and more.)


Hello Diana,
I read your article about swagger api documentation. I like to see if any api document created using swagger just to see how it looks in production?

I am creating one document for our project and not sure if document UI is going to look the same it in editor ?

Kindly help


hello Diana, i would like to write a post very soon


Hello! How do you find topics for your articles?


I write the issues that might be interesting for developers, other IT specialists, or businessmen who are looking for software solutions. You can take a look at your target audience, competitors, popular topics, and more.)


Hello Diana, I'm John, I see that you are interested in Blockchain, google Blockgeeks, you should find more on blockchain there.


Hello, DEVs!

My name is Misir. I'm 17 years old developer that coding in Js, C#, Php, Java, Pascal using those frameworks: Express, React (Native), Express, Asp.Net Core, EF Core, Unity (yes I can also make video games xD), Laravel, Code Igniter, Android, LCL, jQuery, Bootstrap 3, ...

Coding is just fun for me.

I'm CTO at Uviba - payment processing gateway.

Thanks for reading ๐Ÿ˜Š


I love the initiative! We young developers have to work extra hard to account for our age.
Keep it up!


Us Old wannabe career changers feel your pain! Lol


Hi! I would love to get post from you most especially in java, JavaScript and to make video Games.


I'll write. but, At the time I don't have enough time for that :/


Hi Misir,

You have quite an extensive knowledge of programming for your age! Keep up the good work, it seems like you have a natural ability with it.



Hi Farid, I am new here trying hard to become a developer, currently taking up course through Pluralsight and andela sponsored by Google for its certification. Hope all is well with you.

Hi, Muhammed. May I ask how you are enjoying Pluralsight? I have considered them and many others. I just want to learn the best way possible. Thank you.



I'm new to developing, but I've been very happy doing it all day every most days for almost a year now. The quirks of JavaScript have brought me lots of joy.

I'm just really starting to become productive. You know when you start out and aim for the stars and end up just jumping up and down on the spot! I'm not yet getting out to orbit but I've learnt to aim at things that'll build me a rocket.

I'm here to reach out and grow. I realise to move ahead I'm going to need others, independence is causing drag.

Thanks, Love you, Later xox


"I'm not yet getting out to orbit but I've learnt to aim at things that'll build me a rocket." Haha, this is an awesome analogy!




My name is Jim. I've been a sysadmin since forever. I currently delving into Kotlin, more in-depth Python, Ansible and Kubernetes.

As I learn more I hope to publish on Dev.

Glad to join the Dev community.


Welcome to DEV, Jim! Hope to see some of your writing on the site.


Kubernetes! Can't wait for an article on that! Nice to meet you anyway Jim!


Hello, I'm Salman Saleem! I'm a software engineer graduate and digital marketing strategist from profession. I have a strong programming background, so I'm happy to help anyone facing technical challenges.


Welcome Salman!

Definitely check out #help here - dev.to/t/help as that's a place where folks are meant to post technical problems they need help with. Consider following that tag if you want to help out folks facing issues.


Hello, nice to meet you all
I come from Indonesia, I can't wait to learn from all of you. it's just that I am not proficient in English, so I'm sorry if in discussing many grammatical errors.


Welcome Farid to DEV ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™‚๏ธ

Don't you worry about the grammar mistakes and ask & share your knowledge ๐Ÿ™‚
Should there be a problem, people here are nice to ask what you'd have had meant or help you to improve your post/questions.


thank you Daniel
Are you from Germany, Wah from childhood I really like the German national team, what's more since being trained by Jurgen Klinsmann until now being trained by Joachim Lรถw, besides that I also like Dortmun, Neuer, Muller, Ozil and others.
By the way, is this a coding forum? or the football community?


Farid, don't worry at all about your English. It is excellent. Honestly, some of the worst English now comes out of America. Best of luck to you in your coding journey.


Hello everyone, i want to learn how to code but i am not sure how to commit what i learn to memory any suggestions?


Definitely rinse and repeat for committing to memory. But try not to repeat exactly the same way twice. Mix it up, add complexity for practice, delve into how the thing works.


thank you for that advice. Do you happen have any suggestions on a good desktop to handle learning how to code? Ive learned to avoid HP as it seems theyre terrible with being heavy Disk and CPU users.

If you just want a machine that will help you learn coding basics, all you really need is a good internet connection, assuming you're doing your study on the web. If you were working solely from books, you could reasonably get away with any old machine that didn't have trouble starting up.

What are some of your learning goals?
What languages/technologies are you interested in?

Well just reading is where i am realizing im not learning i learn how to do a few things then move on and months later i forget everything. I want to start working in projects (random ones from the internet) to get real practice but I honestly want a smooth experience I work full time and dont really want to deal with a slow or problematic computer as I work on projects to try to learn how to program. I understand how specs work but what ive realized is even with good specs depending on that computer it may still run slow or have issues.

Again, it depends on what kinds of technologies and workloads you plan to work with, but all speed issues will likely come down to processor speed and memory. You can even offload some of your computer strain by working with an IDE on a virtual machine, like cloud9. So even without a lot of $ to spend you could get a decent used computer and figure out an efficient way to run it.

Well i am hoping to get more of a suggestion based on experience. For example my HP laptop injudt bought had the disk and cpu at 100% usage straight out the box where a Dell i had with similar specs just knew how to manage its use of the cpu and disk and its hard to know how a software manages its specs some overlay of certain brands just use unnecessarily and run the computer down.

Hmm. You might want to diagnose what resources are using up 100% of cpu and disk. Apple computers have a program called Activity Monitor that allows you to see what resources are being used by your computer at any given time. Presumably there's a way to check out what's eating up all your cpu.

not the first time ive had similar issues with an HP ive decided to use that for work which consists of mostly light browsing. Its fine though I will probably just purchase a gaming pc with good reviews to be on the safe side if I cant really find a middle ground.

Firstly, it is unlikely that this is a HP specific issue. Fire up your task manager if you are on Windows, or use the "top" command on Linux. It may make sense to debug your CPU usage first.
I would recommend the Razer Stealth laptop with a good keyboard, amazing specs and decent looks. In general though, buy something with an SSD if you want to minimize launch time for applications.

the problem is that the cpu is 100% yet the processes thst are causing that arent there it shows many but none that add up to 100% so its like its hidden. and thank you for that suggestion:D i will look into that one


Hello Kaylee! I know the struggle! What has helped me is by practicing, practicing, practicing. Watching tutorials is a great way to help, but I suggest writing code over and over. Even if you don't know what to do, you'll get better at researching and finding the right answers.


Hello Charles :). Yeah I started styling with CSS but I am noticing answers I find bu google dont work quite often and I will spend like 10 minutes feeling lost endlessly googling haha, but it is fun. I had to purge my computer from windows the specs weren't enough to run windows well so I am running linux mint and it works well so I can start practicing. I was excited to start doing a lot of projects but I couldn't find a site that has more than just a general outline of the goal of the project, I tried to find guided projects with the answers to just practice writing it and seeing how it works but I didn't have good luck in that, do you know any like that?

Absolutely, if you haven't checked out Codepen I would start there! One way that has worked for me is "demystifying" what goes into someone's project. Codepen will allow you to not only see projects people are working on, but the code they used to do so, in an easy-to-read format that you can even edit online.

Plus, at some point when you make your own "Pens", you can embed them in your site/portfolio to show them off!


Maintaining a markdown notebook where your can jot down every new thing you learn has really helped me. After referring to the notebook five to ten times, I start remembering these things and can always refer to my notes super quick if I'm confused instead of googling all over again


Immersion! Lots of coding, and hanging around spaces where coding happens (like dev.to)


thats what im trying to do. I want to start doing projects too but my computer barely handles browsing so Im trying to look for a good PC that is good for someone who will be learning to code


Hi there,

Let go!


Hello! Found out about this place via Twitter. I'm here to see more of the programming community, share and learn!

I have prior experience teaching with the power of tailored analogy. It worked well for algebra tutoring, so I imagine it might be effective here too.


Hello! I'm Fabiana from Brazil. I'm a bignner in programmer and I have fineshed the Angela Yu Web Bootcamp at Udemy. So I was searching for frontend and backend's mind maps to concatenate my skills. Then I found one of dev.to's artichles. And now I'm here ready to learning more.


Hi Fabiana!

That's awesome! Let me know if you find any awesome mind maps. I'm interested in finding some too :)


Hi Melanie!

Actually, I was searching for a concept's map, but I found a diferent map in this post by javinpaul:

But it was very useful to me anyway! :)


I'm Frankie and I'm a startup backend/Golang dev and professional coach. I've recently started blogging - my primary topic is engineering management. I'm working on an online course for dealing with impostor syndrome. Oh, and I do platform engineering at Mix.com.

Somebody recommended this site to me today and I LOVE the aesthetics. Hi folks!


Hey hey Frankie!

Hope you dig it here. If you write anything Golang related please be sure to tag it with #go (dev.to/t/go) ... likewise, the same goes for imposter syndrome (dev.to/t/impostersyndrome) and any other topic you may write on.

So much of discoverability depends on using these tags! Just a general tip!


Hi all,

I am Charis a Javascript Developer from the small island of Cyprus, enthusiastic about Progressive Web Apps, responsive design, vibrant interfaces, interactive web and mobile apps.

I started writing a blog on Medium about 2 months ago and I am planning to release some articles here too in the near future.

Hope to bring some value to this community and absorb some as well.

Have a good day everyone!



Praveen here, I'm a front-end developer from new delhi, India. Currently learning about firebase with react and implementing auth via social logins.

You can checkout the demo here or the repo from here.

How has your experience been with Firebase? Is there something I should know about since I'm thinking of using firebase to build a side project later.

Thank you๐Ÿ™Œ


I think I missed a lot of welcome thread, here we are!

Hi everyone, Khalyomede here, I am a web developer the day, a side project maker the night, and I love to try out new things, and always find easier or more intuitive alternative to do something.

Very happy to be part of this community โœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜


Hey Khalyomede,

Glad you caught this one! ๐Ÿ˜€

Loving the web dev by day/side project maker at night tagline. Sounds like a superhero. ๐Ÿฆธโ€โ™‚๏ธ


Hello everyone!

I am John and I am a web developer from Greece. I haven't wrote any post yet but I am planning to do so asap!
I am here because I am intrested in participating in a community like this! I want to learn something new every day, and I think this is the right place! :)


Hi John, great to have you here! I am looking forward to reading your posts! Do you already have an idea what you want to write about?


Hi Sebastian, thank you for the welcome! I think I would start by writing a post about my favourite javascript resources (books, tutorials etc). What do you think?

Sure, go for it! If you do that, I would also love to hear some takeaway from every resource (e.g. "in 'Javascript - The Good Parts' I learned how to do truly private variables by using scopes")


Hi everyone!

I'm Alex, Python & JS Developer from Russia. I was wondering how to measure my own level of expertise and that's how I found dev.to!

I have a few years of experience as a software developer in different companies around the globe. Most of the companies were start-ups or software development wasn't their main business. I've started exploring new job opportunities recently and while updating my resume I was wondering what level of experience should I put for different roles.

In the most cases, I was employed just as a software/web developer, but in the end, I had to deal with the wide range tasks: managing databases and clouds, designing the whole IT systems from scratch, coding everything, etc.

Pretty much in all companies, I was the only developer, therefore I needed to convert employer's ideas to the working code (or whole IT system) from scratch. It even happened in my first job when I was just an intern.

Should I call myself senior developer, if I have just a couple of years of experience? Should I state roles in my resume as 'Software Developer, DevOps Engineer, System Architect' for every company or just official titles?


Hello everyone!

My name is Ahmed, and I'm from Egypt. Just graduated from the university with a bachelor degree in computer engineering. The degree program covered lots of topics such as OS, mobile applications development, database, embedded systems. I'm still confused which track to take but I'm hoping to become either an android or web developer. I learned about the android development in uni, and now I'm starting to watch an online course about web development.

The programming languages I used are C, C++, Python, Java, JavaScript, and I used frameworks such as ReactJS, ReactNativeJS, NodeJS, ExpressJS

Joined the DEV community to get some advice about jobs tracks and to develop my skills, and become the best version of me.


Welcome to DEV Ahmed! (a month late; but better late then never :) )


Thank God. I almost though the post was invisible.


I currently work as a UX/UI designer. I also develop simple websites using Wordpress. I know tad bits of codes here and there but as far as programming go, am basically a beginner. I trained and worked as a Database Admin too. I have recently started learning how to code and out here looking for all the support and materials that I can get.

I am currently taking a Web Development course by Angela Yu on Full stack web development.



Hello DEV community!

My name is Mrinal and I'm a software engineer primarily working in C#.

I am generally interested in all kinds of tech and language and always eager to learn more, so hopefully I am in the right place!

Please feel free to suggest me things to follow :)


Welcome Mrinal, great to have you! Definitely peruse the c# tag for individuals to follow.


Google news put a post from here in my feed. Thought I'd say hi, I blog on a wide range of societal, scientific and engineering related topics at my blog: sent2null.blogspot.com

Coding focus now is fullstack service building, ML, AI.Workflow


Hello. My name Is Luiz and I have interest in learning more about aplications of coding for the health and machine learning. My favorite languages are python and PHP with Django or Laravel, and I love write and read, specially about fantasy's stories.


Hello Akijunior.

Thanks for sharing about yourself and good luck!


Writing fantasy stories eh? That's super cool. I totally feel like there was someone around here that wrote a how-to for nim or maybe vim in the style of a fantasy... gonna see if I can dig that up.



I'm jerome. I'm a computer science student. I'm very familiar with java and OOP but I was stuck at tutorial purgatory so I transitioned to python. Made some websites with django and flask already. Now, I'm still hungry for ideas so I joined this community.

Hope I can explore cool things here!

I do project management in #robotics R&D for 11+ years and tweet on #robots #automation #opensource #goROS #digitization #AI and so on.

I am new on dev.to

This tweet by @alejandra_quetzalli brought me here


Hi Thilo! Welcome to dev.to :)

I am excited to keep blogging about robotics here... are you going to blog some more too?


Hi all,

Fun fact about me: Onions are my favourite vegetable.
Currently learning all I can to improve my JS and PHP skills
In terms of what brought me here, I wanted to give back to the community but also I wanted to be able to take what I know and learn how to concisely explain it to others in order to really solidify that knowledge.



Honestly couldn't come up with anything more interesting so scraped the barrel and used my favourite vegetable. When you hit rock bottom the only way is up.


Hey everyone!

I'm freshly back from yet another awesome That Conference. A couple of presenters are on dev.to, so I came to check it out. One of my personal goals is to become more involved in this wonderful community, so I'm here to learn and interact.

Thanks for having me!



Awesome! Welcome to the community :)

Who were the speakers?? If you know their dev usernames plz tag them so I can creep ๐Ÿ‘€


My name is Emmanuel. A Nigerian.

Glad to join the community.


Hey guys!

My name's Hayden and I do a lot of full-stack work, as well as breaking into some Game Dev a la ROBLOX and Unity. I've been working for about a year and a half as this, with my knowledge of Node having developed some time early last year.

I'm new to DEV, but I hope to get more active. :)


Welcome to DEV Hayden! do you have any tips for ROBLOX or Unity? Those are two things I've been interested in for a bit, but haven't started with yet :)


Heya Chris!

Well, for ROBLOX, I recommend having a look through a bit of Lua code (it was kind of hard to get to grips with Rbx.Lua when I started). Also, don't even think about doing anything like client-side raycasting or anything on it if you break into... things that would use that. Do it server-side with RemoteEvents.

As for Unity, I've still not spent much time with it but C# is nice and easy to understand, and the exposed APIs from UnityEngine.* are brilliant, they make things really easy to script!

Anything else, I'd be happy to help!

(I'm now on to Kotlin, with a couple years work in JavaScript & TypeScript :) )


Hey all,

Was persuaded to sign up because I wanted to discuss the death of RSS and how tech might preserve independent podcasting.

I'm interested in open source, decentralisation, podcasting, and would like to get into amateur robotics and hardware projects more. I get tired of everything I work on living behind a screen :P

When I'm not building websites or apps for Spritz Creative, I'm blowing off steam by shouting my head off with Hearse Pileup

I'm working on getting back into blogging too

Nice to meet you all :)


Digging the tunes!! Listening to "Pretty Shiny Things" - this rocks!


Hah, thanks! I'm trying to get an album out end of this year/early next year; will surely post an update then :D


Hey there! I'm a front-end developer with a 9-year experience in building React, Angular, and JavaScript projects. I'm also an active open source contributor. Nice to meet you! Hope, I will be welcomed here! :)


Hi everyone, great to be here. My name's Mark from Leamington Spa near Coventry, Warwickshire, UK - used to live near Bristol. I started with PHP, but my career went more in the direction of digital marketing, SEO, web design, PPC, email marketing etc and only now am I looking at PHP once more. I've been playing with PHP/MySQL for over 15 years, but never actually done enough to be fluent, so I'm here hoping to learn more. I have used PHP a few times a year, but often work with other developers to execute any projects. I've always been more comfortable with procedural, but feel I need to get much more comfortable with object oriented PHP. Am I the only one scared of OOP?

Hope your week's been great so far.


Hey Mark. OOP can be scary initially, but I feel like once the understanding is there, it can the coding experience much easier.


Thanks Yusuf. That's good to know. I have never got far enough to find out! But hopefully will soon.


Hi Everyone!

My name is Jalena and I am a UX Designer looking for my first Full Time job. I have been doing client work and bootcamps for over 2 years. My background is in the arts - I have been a textile designer for over 10 years ( fun fact - i draw the patterns that are printed on fabrics, currently for J Crew!)

I am looking for any full time positions, open to contract to hire. Excited to meet new designers as well. Thanks!


Hey everyone!

I'm Mike and am excited to be here primarily to learn from all of you. I'm a digital marketer working for an agency who has been dabbling in code for over 15 years. I know HTML but want to master front end development. I love building websites and learning the ins and outs of tech. Open to exploring new languages I know nothing about!


Hello Everyone!
I'm Usman and i've recently joined Emumba as DevOps Engineer. I love to travel,read and learn about new things.
I believe that one should play an active role in his community irrespective of the outcome.


Hi Usman. Great attitude you have there - welcome to the community!


I'm Elsa and I'm a game/web dev student from Finland. I really liked this pages design and the community seems welcoming so I decided to join. I have experience in HTML, CSS and Javascript and I am interested in almost every aspect of programming and tech. I love to create but I am not a writer so I don't know how much I am going to write here or anywhere.

Have a pleasant day!


Hi everyone!

My name is Brian. I work as an electrical engineer in Western Michigan, USA.

I currently work with the .NET framework primarily, but my interest and knowledge of JavaScript and web development has exploded in the last month or two and I'm excited to see how this knowledge shapes my career.

Happy learning!


Hi Brian! This is a bit late - but better late than never :) I grew up in Michigan! (near the thumb) - it really does have a lot of neat places.


No problem Chris, thanks for the reply! I really enjoy Michigan. I came here for college, but I grew up in Colorado. Where are you located now? I'm a big fan of your posts on dev.to!

I'm down in Indiana now (not too far :) ). Same story here - came to Indiana for college, then just stayed ๐Ÿ˜…

Glad you like the posts! I'm working on another crash course right now actually ๐ŸŽ‰

I think that's a pretty common theme as of late. :P Well keep up the great content, I'll be looking for your next posts!


Hi all! My name is Kevin and I'm a Release Engineer by day and an aspiring web developer by night. In my day job, I'm a TFS Admin and I do a bit of PowerShell scripting. For the web dev side, I'm currently trying to learn Vue and Express. I'm not that good at the web dev stuff and I'm currently going down the YouTube, Udemy, Pluralsight rabbit hole. This stuff is good, but I need to face my fears and just start building already. I'm hoping to follow some smart people here and hopefully get some much needed direction. Currently I'm trying to evaluate using NUXT + Vuetify and am scouring the web for examples. I doubt I can provide much help with any web related questions at this point, but I can probably help out with any Git related questions that people may have.


Hi Kevin. Welcome to DEV ๐Ÿ‘‹

Yes, it surely is daunting to learn the front-end technologies and you usually end up going down the rabbit hole ๐Ÿ˜ž

But you can ask questions and follow/focus some tags you are interested in.
Say, #vue and follow/say hi to the Vue tag mod, Dave Follett ๐Ÿ™‚

And have fun learning & sharing with other DEVs


I am new to the Dev community. I want to become a developer but I'm not sure which route to take. I've done basic programs with Java, C/C++. I considered a bootcamp and was wondering does anyone have any insight as to whether that would be a good idea or should I just learn it on my own? Thanks.


My name is Swati and I am a front-end developer.
I got interested in web developing when I was doing a mini project in college from then I am just getting more interest and now I'm interested in learning to react, angular.

Thank you and Have a nice day everyone



Quick tip: consider following the react - dev.to/t/react and angular - dev.to/t/angular tags as this will make more of these posts show up in your feed.


Hello Dev Community, I am a software engineer with hand full of experience, who enjoy coding, solving problems and learning cool stuffs.
Happy to land here!



I'm Brad, and I'm a full stack Typescript dev. I usually work with Angular, Typescript, Express, and MongoDB. I'm a Linux guy and a Pixelbook fan (currently on one now!)

I came to dev.to as a way to get development focused articles without any pay-walls, or ad-spam ๐Ÿ˜„. So far I love the platform!


Hello community!!

I'm glad to join. I'm a Software Engineering that loves to develop and with high passion doing software engineering and architecture.
It will be great to read all your great comments and really hope I can share good thoughts too!



I've been here before but what brought me here this time was reading something about WebAssembly.

I've been a Web Applications Developer, Sr. Software and Applications Systems Engineer professionally for about 20 years now until more recently when my team's division was acquired/merged into another company and then a year later all us developers were laid off (apparently replaced by offshore). Since I previously worked 100% remotely for 7 1/2 years, 5 years ago I moved my family from SoCal to north Idaho based on the fact that I had at the time what I thought was a stable 100% remote job that paid fairly well. Now I'm finding it tough to find a comparable position from north Idaho where I bought my house and really don't want to move again. My family and I love it here.

I've been trying some different things other than the mostly JavaScript, C# and T-SQL/SQL Server .NET world which I was in for many years. One of those things has been programming in Go and another has been learning Rust. I've really been enjoying each of them very much. Through interviewing for Go positions I've written several small but interesting apps. Unfortunately no position yet though, but I really enjoyed coding them up. However, since recently taking another stab at Rust going deeper with it I'm finding it to be quite amazing.


Hi all. I'm new here, a Computer Science Graduate Student at Seattle University, with a Master's in Quantitative International Economics, and a novice at Data Science Storytelling in Python. Seeking internships and entry-level opportunities. Looking forward to meeting people!


Hello all,

my name is Michael, I live in Stuttgart, Germany. I thought I'd introduce myself and say hi to you all. I've been an avid reader of dev.to for a couple of months and really appreciate what you are doing here. I've already learned so much just by reading new posts here and I look forward to taking the next steps in my personal programming journey.

I'm here for the "love of programming". In my day job, I'm the head of the language department at a community college here in town. Right now we have a strong focus on language classes for refugees and migrants coming to Germany and we coordinate funding programs for language classes by the federal government. At night I love to code and I try to learn something new everyday time. I'm not a developer by profession but programming has become a fascinating part of my life. I currently focus on C# and Javascript, but I've also dabbled in Python and Java.

Hope you guys will have a great week. See you soon, Michael


I've been an avid reader of dev.to for a couple of months and really appreciate what you are doing here.

Hello! Wow, this community looks amazing! I am a 30-year-old physicist, and looking for a change in career, starting to code. For now, I have some experience in ruby, C and python, and hoping to utilize my scientific background. So, this community looks like a perfect place to talk to you guys, learn from you and share what I have learned so far. Cheers!


Hi! My name is Mel. I recently started my journey toward a career in coding and began to teach myself JavaScript a few months ago. I know I have a long way to go but I'm hopeful. I live in NYC - looking for other coders here that want to chat or develop something together!

Hi all,

My name is Ferenc and I work as a web (BE PHP) developer but I have some experiences in other fields (Java, Android, .NET and some more). I started programming when I was 12 on school C=16, C=+4, C=64 computers - it was a very-very long time ago :)
Unfortunately my everyday tasks don't offer too many intellectual challenges nowadays so I started to learn Rust and this provides me with a lot of frustrated and successful moments :)


Hello World!!!

First post here.

I'm a developer, primarily coding in java... Here to learn and hopefully to contribute a bit.

Thank you all ๐Ÿ™ƒ


Hello, I hope everyone is doing fine!

My name is Alejandro and I have been coding for about 3 years now and never really got into de dev community and know I plan to go in and enjoy with all of you.

I plan to write some articles from time to time about the tech I enjoy, the things I build and the experience I gather along the way (you can expect mainly web development or Linux stuff)

Hope we have a great time together


Hey guys! Im a community manager in a small french game dev company. Personally, im not much of a coder myself as i know only basics, but due to work have to learn something. Right now im mostly interested in c++ and c# as they seem easiest to me.
Not sure what else to write, so have a nice day everyone :D



My name is Angie Unda (easier to say than Soledad) I am 18 years old and this is my first time entering a community of this kind. I am trying to become more involved in the software development world and interact with other software beginners. I am currently enrolled in a coding camp by the name of base camp coding academy in the small town Water Valley, MS. Looking for any helpful resources or one on one help to help launch me into my new career.

Be seeing you :)



I'm Austin. I love simplicity and clarity.

I love well-made things. Things that feel optimized for user happiness. Things that make me say, "Ahhh, THIS is the way it should have always been ๐Ÿ˜Š"

Ruby feels like this. Rails feels like this. HAML feels like this. ES6 is feeling more like this...

What feels like this to you? (Happy to meet you!)


Hello DEV World!

I'm a Web Developer. I mainly code in javascript.

I'm hoping to read articles about tech and thinking here in dev.to

ALSO I WANT TO GET STARTED ON GAME DEV. So if anyone has any tips or links- anything at all, I'd love that. Well if you can mentor me then that would be soooo awesoomeeeee.

Hoping to read and write the best posts!


Hi all!

Over the last few months, I have ended up on this website more and more often. I love the content, so after a few months of lurking, I decided to create an account. Gosh, who knew there was so much more Javascript one could learn? This website opened my eyes.

I enjoy teaching others how to use serverless technologies to solve their problems. Right now I'm working on a video series, and will post about it in the future.

All the best,

Welcome Martin! That is exactly the journey we expect folks to go on, so we try not to be pushy with lurkers, just giving them a gentle nudge to join in. ๐Ÿ™‚


Hi DEVs!

I'm Adam, and programming was my passion since age 13. I'm a bit older than that now (37) but the passion is the same!

I founded a services company called 500Tech 7 years ago, which I started as CTO, then CEO, and now I'm only in a board position, so I have more time to blog ๐Ÿ˜

I'm a web GDE, and I'm very involved in the community, and part of organizing conferences (ReactNext, AngularUP).

I'm actually relatively new to blogging and would love some tips ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a great day!


My name is asma, I just interned a link from twitter about a post talking about the age and how you can start learning code at any age, the post was from this site and I felt interested to join in here as I'm a beginner myself at a 38, I like web developing because it offers something I find myself in which is producing things. Hope I learn more about this field and the people who work in it.
Thank you for accepting me here.



I'm Matt Layman. I'm a long time Python developer, but I have a general love for all kinds of software and languages.

I've been writing on my personal site for 11 years, and I thought I might share some of that content here and interact with this community.
