It would be nice to see how people do rapid development in Laravel and convert it to be more independent from the framework.

Matthew Piercey

My name's Matthew, and I'm a second-year business student currently living in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.

I've always considered myself to be techie; some of my fondest memories are of taking apart late-90's desktops, learning how to write my first JS script, and printing my first custom design on my 3D printer.

I'm a hobby web developer/designer, but I've been involved in robotics and general DevOps shenanigans, and many things in-between.

I own/operate a tiny robotics business, Bot-In-a-Box Educational Robotics, which I started with a friend of mine a couple of years ago, and I've got some rather ambitious plans for the next few months...

Anyway, I stumbled upon Dev.to a few weeks ago, while researching how to use Nuxt.js. Since then, it's far and above become my favourite blog/news site, and I just generally really like it.

Hi, I'm a QA Engineer that is learning all things Java with the occasional Python (Which I've dabbled with in the past). I'm currently getting interested in Information Security especially around the pen test, application security. I'm not limiting myself so any information is always good for me to discuss. So if any of you want to connect and discuss, then let me know.

I'm also getting into all things AWS, Docker, and Kubernetes

Since you're a QA engineer, I'll ask: what's one thing you wish app developers would do to make your life easier? Thanks!

Collapse
testingtheeventhorizon profile image
Steveland

Not putting the bugs in the software in the first place :)

Seriously, I'm not really too sure. The main thing I value is communication, so as long as developers and myself communicate effectively, then it's all good. Good documentation, good logging, and good collaboration, then I'm generally happy. Let me think more about that.

haha, yeah, no bugs in the first place would be great 😂

I am interested in learning web or applications development however I still don't know where to start or even the standards to be able to commit to the next level. Any ideas where I might start and how to be able to be motivated? (shared experiences would be appreciated too :) ) #webdev #android

Collapse
deciduously profile image
Ben Lovy

I didn't know how to start either... I had a great experience working through CS50x. It's a good introduction to the craft in general and uses a variety of languages, so you can then choose what interests you most after trying it out first.

It is definitely a difficult class, be prepared to spend a lot of time on the problems and get stuck - but that means you're learning!

Collapse
chrisachard profile image
Chris Achard

It can certainly be overwhelming! My advice is:

  1. Hang out around other technical people online. Good news: you're already doing it! DEV is a great place to hang out and find like-minded people.

  2. Read just enough of the docs or a tutorial in order to get the basic picture (that often just means getting setup, and running "Hello World"... which can sometimes take a long time to get going!

  3. Find a personal project that you think you'll really like to do. Make it SUPER simple to start... and then do that! You'll have to google a lot to figure out how to get it to work, but you'll get there eventually! (that's why you have to pick a project that you really want to do :) )

  4. repeat! Learning never ends, but it does get easier over time.

Good luck!

So after 17 months of deciding I wanted to code full-time and writing my first official line of code, I am really glad to say I got my first full-time role as a front-end Developer. This is very huge for me considering the fact that I had a lot of setbacks during learning and at times it felt like the world was against my decision, but i'm here now and I really want to help people who have difficulties in in anyway get a better understanding of things. I would be explaining, contributing and doing all I can to help aspiring career changers like me, or anyone in fact learn, understand and grow. Cheers to a new beginning
