Hi everyone! ๐Ÿ‘‹ I'm currently an engineering manager at Uber, in Amsterdam, where I help a team of developers grow every day. Before I transitioned into management, I was a developer for a long time, starting with web, then doing backend and mobile - all the way from Windows Phone, iOS, then Android.

I love to share what I learn learnings, both on my blog and I've written a few articles here as well. I've also recently started writing a book on growing as a software engineer, in a tech company or startup. This is from starting out at the first job, through leveling up to being senior, all the way to the staff/principal levels of making wide company or industry impact. I'm writing the type of book I wish I had earlier in my career. There's a lot of great books on how to write good code, but growing as a software engineer, working at a tech company goes well beyond just coding. If you'd like to get updates on the progress of this book, you can subscribe to updates or follow me here.

Finally, I'd like to share the top thing that helped me grow professionally, in all the environments I've worked in. Don't be afraid to ask the "stupid"/straightforward questions when you join a new company or team. No matter how inexperienced or experienced you are, being able to phrase what you don't know and ask for help really helps you and the person trying to help you. Early on in my career, I was lucky enough to do this subconsciously. Later, I started to do it consciously, whenever starting to learn a new technology. If there was someone around me who knew it well. I would tell them "I'll ask some basic questions when I'm stuck, but I promise to do my research before and not ask the same two questions ever." This simple thing helped me grow so much faster, I recommend you try it if you've not done it before.

I'm excited to be here and contribute, share my expertise and also learn from all of you!

 

I'm excited to be here and contribute, share my expertise and also learn from all of you!

Yay! Super great to have you!

 
 

Welcome to the party! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป

Weโ€™re happy to have you, and we at The DEV Communityโ„ข hope youโ€™ll enjoy your time here. ๐Ÿ˜Š

 
 

If this is your welcome post, I can't wait to dive in to your actual post ๐Ÿ˜

 

Hi Gergely! You sound very straight forward and simple. The notion of asking questions is really what I too like the most and do the most but as you said, will do a before hand research. I love to read the book since I'm pretty sure, this is going to help me a lot since I just started to climb the ladder in tech industry!!

 

Looking forward to explore the marvelous world of programming with your help.
Really excited to have your guidance.

 
 

Yeah!! That would be very helpful :D :D

How do I put emos by the way :p...

 
 

Warm welcome to you. Hope you have nice time with us.. Thanks for joining us.

 

Very impressive, thanks for sharing Gergely.

 
 
 
 

Hi everyone! My name's Gabi and I'm a software engineer at Etsy. I'm passionate about code, fostering kittens and making technology a more inclusive space for marginalized folks.

I struggle with anxiety around putting myself out there on the internet for criticism but I went to a talk by @jessleenyc at the Write/Speak/Code conference last year and dev.to seems like the perfect place to start sharing my knowledge with (hopefully kind) strangers.

I figure that if you're not pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone, you're not growing, so this is me, pushing myself outside of my comfort zone. ๐Ÿ˜… I'm excited to start contributing to the excellent content here and getting to know this community better!

 

Welcome! You have the support of the whole moderator community supporting you.

 

Thank you, Ben! Happy to be here. โค๏ธ

 

Hi Gabi, nice to find you here. Looking forward to your posts!

 

Hi Vanessa! What a small world / funny coincidence we both signed up within a couple days of each other. Looking forward to your posts as well!

 

Welcome Gabi! Looking forward to reading your content!

 
 

Welcome, Gabi! ๐ŸŽ‰
Looking forward to seeing what you have to share ๐Ÿ™‚

 
 

Welcome to DEV Gabi! I've found this to be one of the best places for devs to hang out online, so you've picked a good place :) What are you most interested in talking about?

 

Hi Chris! I'm currently working on a post about Elasticsearch and have some other topics in mind involving React/Redux, accessibility, side projects & productivity. Thanks for the welcome! :)

Awesome! Those all sound like things I'd be interesting in - can't wait to read them :)

 

Welcome! I struggle with anxiety too, but with demonstrating what I know. A little of impostor syndrome.

 

I think imposter syndrome is tough to avoid when it's an uphill battle to prove that you're as capable as someone who fits the 'traditional' profile of a software engineer. If you ever want to chat about it, I have my open hours on my Linkedin profile :)

 

Oooo I feel that anxiety! I thought to do the same thing today! Welcome!

 

I think it's super natural to feel anxious around putting yourself out there technically, but this seems like a place where people won't "ummm actually...". ๐Ÿ™ Welcome to you too!

Yah, for sure! I'm super hopeful it won't be like that. :)

 
 

Hi everyone! I'm an AI volcanologist (๐ŸŒ‹, rather than ๐Ÿ––). A condition of my funding is communicating my research, and I'd rather do it in a friendly forum than shout out into the abyss of an obscure web-blog.

I've spent some time as a data scientist and back-end architect, so I'm also here to keep my skills fresh! I'm looking to keep a steady flow of articles out over the next year, with a 52-week blog challenge - 52 weekly blogs or articles on data analysis, writing good code in a scientific environment and computational research the natural sciences!

 

That's super awesome. Definitely interested to read all your blogs. My first career was as a biologist and I now work as a web dev, but have vague long-term goals about figuring out how to combine the two.

 

Wow! What a career change! I believe there will be a lot of job opportunities for people who can transit between the natural and computer sciences very soon.

Best of luck! :)

 

Hi Richard. Amazing career path you have and I learnt a new term today "volanologist" ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

 
 
 
 

Hi Dev Community!

I am a self-taught Web Developer with a Bachelors in Industrial Engineering that decided to switch careers from the manufacturing industry to web development. Interesting enough, one of my first projects was to develop a web-based platform to automate administrative processes on the manufacturing industry. This web development /programmer approach suits me better ๐Ÿ˜†.

I run ctrl-y blog where I write about learning to program and changing careers.

Learning to program the web on my own has been fun, challenging, and exciting. Having a community to learn from makes it even better!

 

Hi Yari, it's just awesome your courage to get out of the box of your graduation and learn new things by your self! There isn't many people that can/want do this. So congratulations for your attitude, and welcome! ๐Ÿ˜

 
 

Hi Yari! Thank you for posting. I will definitely be following your blog :) I just started learning to code and changing careers.

 
 

Hi there, glad to have you there! I've switched to Web Development just like you did but I was a former accountant. Thanks for sharing your blog with us!

 

Hi all, hi Gergely Orosz,

what brought me here was the Indie Hackers podcast with Ben Halpern I think, really inspiring (just as the Interview with Evan You :-))

I'm working on an Open Source temporal NoSQL document storage system called SirixDB written in Java (and a module in Kotlin) in my spare time. In my day to day job I'm also working as a backend Software Engineer. Besides I'm dancing a lot -- swing dances, mainly Lindy Hop and travel to festivals in Europe often times during my holidays :-)

SirixDB (sirix.io or github.com/sirixdb/sirix) is all about efficient versioning of your data. That is on the one hand it reduces the storage cost of storing a new revision during each transaction-commit while balancing read- and write-performance through a novel sliding snapshot algorithm and dynamic page compression. On the other hand Sirix supports easy query capabilities for instance to open a specific revision by a timestamp or several revisions by a given timespan, to navigate to future or past versions of nodes in the tree-structure and so on. It basically never overwrites data and is heavily inspired by ZFS and Git and borrows some ideas and puts these to test on the sub-file level.

In stark contrast to other approaches SirixDB combines copy-on-write semantics on a per revision and per page-level versioning. It does not require a write-ahead-log for consistency.

It all started around 2006 as a university / Ph.D. project of Marc Kramis and I worked on the project since 2007 and already did my Bachelor's Thesis, Master's Thesis as well as several HiWi-Jobs on topics regarding the project and I'm still more eager than ever to put forth the idea of a versioned, analytics plattform to perform analytical tasks based on current as well as the history of the data.

 

Hello, my name is Ted.

I have just started learning computer programming as a freshman at Tulsa Community College. I am starting with Python. I am handicapped, so I'm not as fast at typing as someone who can use both hands, but I am not going to let that stop me from learning how to code. Some of the questions I'm going to ask may sound simple to an experienced person, but at this point, I'm going to need all the help I can get.

 

Hey Ted. Having spent some time being one-handed, and knowing a few devers, have some insight. Maybe you've already figured it out, maybe not...

Laptops and their trackpads are way more efficient than a keyboard and mouse. IDEs and their "macros" can help you a lot. Most of the new-breed editors (Atom, VSCode, et al) have good support for hot-keys and language-specific stuff, on top of their contextual menus.

I think you'll find out that coding is as much about thinking as it is typing. You'll optimize the time between the two, as well as figuring out how to context-switch.

Invest as much time in learning to test your code as learning the language. I know for me, I was prone to more syntax (read spelling) issues when I was traveling the whole keyboard with one hand.

I didn't have much luck with speech-to-text tooling, but this was a while back for me. I know some developers who use it pretty well now. I don't know the toolchain but they've figured out how to wire up macros and hot-keys to voice actions.

Good luck to ya!

 

Welcome to party! Glad to see you here! And never be afraid of asking what you don't know yet. We all have been there.

I'm willing to help if you want on anything :)

 

Hello,
I'm having trouble with the same type of question I ask for help last week. The instructor isn't any help, and I hope you can help me figure this out. After you read the question they expect us to figure out the solution to the code. There are no examples that help to solve this question, and I have no idea where to start.

Write a single statement that assigns avg_sales with the average of num_sales1, num_sales2, and num_sales3.

Sample output with inputs: 3 4 8
Average sales: 5.00

  1. avg_sales = 0 2.
  2. num_sales1 = int(input())
  3. num_sales2 = int(input())
  4. num_sales3 = int(input()) 6.
  5. ''' Your solution goes here ''' 8.
  6. print('Average sales: {:.2f}'.format(avg_sales))

When you have a minute can you help me figure this out, please?

Thank you,

Theodore Rahm

 

Welcome! DEV is great for getting help :) Good to have you

 

Hi Ted!๐Ÿ‘‹ Welcome to the community. It's awesome to have you here.

 

Hi, everyone. I am a self-taught front-end developer that has a Bachelor's in Elementary Education. Looking to switch career paths and currently applying for developer jobs. I currently know how to code in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, React, and now starting to learn back-end skills. I am happy to help where I can!

 

Pleasure to seen such a great set of skills. Looking forward to learn from you :)

 

Welcome to the party! Nice to know that you are a brave person looking for great challenges.

I'll be glad to support you on anything I can :)

 

Hello Guys...
I'm called Bless Darah, a UI Designer and Frontend Developer at Y'G Inc Cameroon.
I love being around people who can teach and mentor me to be the best in what I do. The articles here on DEV are just so super awesome that I would love to learn how to write like the distinguished authors of such articles.
I want my voice to be heard (not with the wrong knowledge of course, but with distilled and well filtered content that will come from a community like this one) as every man has a story to tell. I'm certain that my successes, mistakes and failures can help to be an eye-opener to many.

I'm therefore more than excited to see how my own contribution can help inspire the entire coding community.
Cheers!

 

Welcome to DEV! The best way to learn how to write well is to practice :) and this is a great community to do that on - I look forward to your articles!

 
 

Hello Folks!!

I'm a Computer Science undergraduate at Indian Institute of Technology Bhubaneswar. I have worked with CERN-HSF as a GSoC Student and Amazon as an SDE Intern in past and will be joining Amazon as SDE next year.

I was occasionally lurking here from a long time but today I finally decided to have an account to involve more and contribute and I can't be more excited to be here and learn as much as I can from the wonderful people present here.

 

Great to have you Aman! Nice job getting into Amazon as an SDE :)

 

Thank You, Chris. It's just the start of a long journey.

 

Hey! I'm a self taught web developer and backend developer. I have joined dev.to to post how I found out new ways and how I got challenged while coding my project.

The current project I'm working on is an open source chat client. Here is my website: nertivia.supertiger.tk

I'm really happy to be here to share the challenges I will be encountering and will be sure to help others too and learn from you.

Thanks for reading!

 
 

Hello, I was just reading an article and bumbled my way into this. I work in web support now but am working on my first marketable WP theme, while also learning to become a JS developer, plans to also become a PHP dev as well. I love to design UI and web pages but I also start nerding out hardcore on page speed, analytics, and then turn around and run marketing campaigns. I don't know man, guess I'll be happy anywhere I land as long as I can have the freedom to be creative.

 
 

Hello there!
I am an Android Engineer trying my best everyday. I answer Stack Overflow questions. I'm also very active on the r/androiddev reddit thread. Always try to avoid adding more than one activity to the app. Passionate about Kotlin, Annotation Processor and also Java. I also blog on Android/Kotlin/Java topics.

 

Trying our best is all any of us can do, right? ๐Ÿ˜That's the attitude we should all have. Welcome to DEV Stavro!

 
 

Hi,

I am here to learn more about React, React-Native, Angular, Vue from all of you!

I'm a web developer, storyteller, Amateur football analyst who's addicted to food and reading articles on Medium (I think it is going to change to Dev.io) and playing games on Xbox. I love talking about web development frameworks, libraries, strategies, work hacks that I've learned from my own experience and reading them online.

Here's what a few of Managers and Senior Manager of Deloitte Consulting said:

"Iโ€™m lucky to have got the opportunity to work with you! You demonstrated excellent analytical skills and an unrivaled breadth AND depth of knowledge for the amount of experience you have."

"Similar to Mili I too was amazed at the depth of functional and process knowledge you had."

I am grateful that you took the time to read it. I'd like to know YOU! Just send me an invitation and connect with me here!

If I can help you with anything, please reach out to me at samratat@gmail.com or you can connect via Medium or my portfolio samratghosh-portfolio.herokuapp.com/

Programming Languages and Tools -
HTML5, CSS3, JS (ES2016), Bootstrap, Angular, React, Vue, Npm, Node.js, Git, GitHub, BitBucket, Jira, VS Code

 

Welcome! I also switched from medium to DEV, and have been super happy. Good to have you! :)

 
 

Hi, i am working as web designer, i am very passionate to web design and web development. After reading some articles in freecodecamp i found this forum as a suggestion to get more into coding.I am here mostly to learn something from others and getting more confident in coding bcz i don't have to much experience .
Wish you all happy coding.

 

Good to have you! This site is great for learning :) good luck on your coding journey!

 
 

Hi all, I've been in IT for over 40years, but am still a geek. Right now, developing a IoT cloud platform for remote sensors. Multi-threaded Python script to aggregate data from various sources into a NoSQL MongoDB, then NodeJS/Express API to display in a browser. Working with 3rd-party API from Google, Here and UK MetOffice. Everything runs securely behind nginx in Docker containers on VPS in Paris & Amsterdam. My big (huge) issue is UX as I am just a bodging engineer, more comfortable with a command line. Having just read a few posts, I am really keen to dive in deeper - thanks for all the content!

 

Welcome to DEV! 40 years - impressive! What's the biggest shift in the industry that you've seen over that time?

 

So many! I started out designing in pure TTL products like papertape reader/punches and being so excited that we could simplify the design with a single chip - the UART.

The PC didn't arrive until 1981, when a 5MB 5-inch hard drive cost as much as the original IBM PC-XT (about ยฃ1200). My first portable was manufactured by Philips and ran CP/M (P2000C).

As a coder, I was modifying the 4096 bytes of assembler that ran 'green screen' text terminals. Every byte was precious. I am staggered by current software bloat, for example, 1.16Gb just by the simple act of 'npm install --save-dev nodemon'.

To actually answer your question, though - the biggest shift has to be the reliance on Google to problem-solve - one could argue that it stifles innovation. People tend not to think an issue through; instead, just search for someone who has done something similar.

1.16Gb just by the simple act of 'npm install --save-dev nodemon'

๐Ÿ˜ฎ ... I mean - I knew node modules could be big but; ha; that seems excessive :)

Interesting point about Google: immediate answers like that didn't exist even 20 years ago!

Neat perspective; thanks :)

I've found that Google can be used for good. :D

Nic, I think your point about "reliance" is spot on. I don't necessarily think it's bad to use "search" as an extension of our memory. However, it is critically important for us problem-solvers to evaluate that memory for various things. Obviously it's easy to search and find a solution - e.g. a library that provides the functionality we need. We just need to keep going and be concerned with it to some level of depth that makes sense.

I personally struggle with the depth problem a bit. I get super-focused on the problem I'm actually trying to solve and don't always due the diligence required to prevent becoming dependent on external sources of functionality that may not be good.

I've been working on "Trust but Verify" - to think a bit more critically about search results (whether at Google or Github). But man isn't StackOverflow a savior more often than not?

But man isn't StackOverflow a savior more often than not?

Absolutely :) sooo many hours saved by just googling for the answer to some problem I'm having (using configuration issues! soooo annoying!) and finding a great SO answer :)

 

Hi everyone,

I feel good about this forum!

I am an independent software developer and content creator. It had not once occurred to me growing up, that I could teach myself engineering and actually be hired to do it, until I did exactly that about two years ago, after leaving a career in public finance as an economic analyst.

I feel very strongly about the quality of information in engineering and software education, especially for people who want to transition their careers or for people who just want to embark on an amazing odyssey. My goal is to add to the effort of creating thorough, clear-cut content that imparts in an insightful way. I believe that anyone can get going with this stuff at any point in their lives.

I plan to contribute as much as I can and as best I can and I can't do it alone.

I recently started a blog.

It's currently focused on programming basics with C as a learning tool. I hope for it to become a resource filled with ground-up tutorials on the most pressing software subjects of our time.

If you read this through to the end then know that you have made me a very happy camper.

I'll see you in the feeds!

 

Welcome to DEV Emille! Congrats on starting your blog ๐ŸŽ‰

 

Thank you Chris! Super happy to be here ๐Ÿ˜Ž

 

Boy, it's good to be here! I've been a fan of dev.to from afar for a long time now. I just left Over where I helped extend their flagship design tool (think Adobe Photoshop or Sketch but simpler!) into the Websphere alongside our Android and IOS counterparts.

The engineer in me loves design, composition, and value-driven impact. The learner in me loves connecting and growing with people like you.

I would love to collaborate with anyone who is interested in building great products together or knows of others that might be. Please don't hesitate to reach out, I don't bite ;)

 

Hey folks!

I'm a bit of a career nomad. Biochemistry degree, some kind of an accountant, and now branching slowly but surely into App and Web Development. I don't know where I fit in but I'll figure it out eventually.

I love to learn, I'm stubborn with a problem, and I've been working on FreeCodeCamp for two months now. I've learned a ton. I have used VBA almost every day at work for a couple years, Years ago I taught myself Java, Obj-C, and then Swift to feed my desire to make apps, and I just can't seem to learn enough. Fascinated by all the puzzles out there.

Nice to be here. :)

 

Welcome to DEV Patrick! This is a great site for figuring out where you fit :) It sounds like you're trying a bunch of different things - which is what I recommend for sure. Good luck!

 

Hello guys! I am a beginner still studying and have not really participated in any development projects yet...still doing some minor demo projects as i learn.stumbled upon this community which caught my attention and I anticipate participating and contributing as i learn from great minds.

 

Hey everyone,

I have actually been here since 2017 but was lurking in the corners, slowly building up the courage to post something ( I have a few drafts on Laravel, oAuth, Slack Bots, and general WordPress shenanigans ) ๐Ÿคญ

I'm one of those self-taught people, lead developer, doing front and backend, digital user journey/deanonymization, AB testing, innovation, and process on a large nationwide ( Canada ) automotive website.

I think that my generality has caused me to have a bit of an identity crisis in terms of title, so I just default to web stuff, because innovation sounds pretentious and programmer sounds like I know what I'm doing ๐Ÿ˜‰

Over the past 15 years, I have worked in bike shops, startups, government, agencies, and now corporate.

I have always struggled with focus and procrastination ( so many things to do! ), and I would say impostor syndrome. But I have identified this and have worked really hard lately to do... Less. Yes doing less work in the evenings and spending more time with family, woodworking, riding bikes has helped tremendously.

Managing has meant that personal technical growth has slowed but I tend to lean into the unknown most of the time. I think what has helped me though is a willingness to jump in and learn.

I'm excited to learn that next thing, see how something works and just try new stuff!

 

Hello guys! ๐Ÿ‘‹

My name is Anton and I am currently an economist that works a normal 9-5 job that has no involvement of programming at all. I do, however, have a big interest in it, so I spend most of spare time (and work time...๐Ÿ˜‡) trying to learn as much as I can as I greatly enjoy it. I have been doing programming on my leisure time for maybe 2-3 years, I hope that in a couple of years I might be working with it in some way.

Since I found this site I have learned so much, and everyone seems so friendly. Finally, I created my own account, and I don't think I'll regret it. I have written some articles about programming myself and hope to share some newly created as soon as possible.

I am so excited to get started to participate, learn and hopefully share some knowledge as well.

 

Welcome to DEV Anton! Glad you liked it enough to join :) Looking forward to your articles!

 
 

Hi guys, I won't write so much because I'm still an english student and I'm not very good yet, so I'm sorry for any mistakes.

I'm Brazilian, from Rio de Janeiro, 25 yo, Systems of Information student, love everything about technology. During my free time I like playing League of Legends and The Sims ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป

I'm here because next day 16 I'll start as a Java developer intern, so I'm a little bit nervous and anxious, because I know very little about Java, so my future manager sent me this link dev.to/yusufcodes/what-i-learned-f... and I thought the purpouse of this site just amazing, and wanted to join it ๐Ÿ˜. As well I think it will be good to practice english reading ๐Ÿ˜„

 

Hi Elen! Is this your first job? It's totally normal to be nervous but it's great you'll be getting experience working in a company.

I would recommend this course on Codecademy for learning Java and you'll probably find other free tutorials for the language. Java was one of the first languages I learned in school (although I don't use it now).

Dev is a really great site, I spend at least a few min each day going through the feed.

By the way, your English is great. ๐Ÿ‘

 

Hey Dana, thank you so much! I didn't know this site, saved it here to take a look later. This is not my first job, actually I already worked a lot in my life in secular jobs, but this is the first one in my study area, with a real programming language, and I'm afraid of seem ... You know , dumb or idiot. Like "You already should know something"... But it's just my anxiety speaking, I know that. My future coworkers seem great, I got no reason for think these things, but sometimes it's inevitable.

For now I'm studying Objects Oriented in Java on Coursera, and "Curso em Video", a brazilian site with a fantastic professor.

And thanks again, you're an angel. I take almost a year to write a small text in English ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

 

Hi everyone! Super excited to be here. I'm @tindall@cybre.space (though I can't put that in my profile, apparently, because cybre.space isn't allowed?) and NoraCodes on GitHub and pretty much everywhere else. My website is nora.codes.

I write a ton of Rust and Python, plus some Go and Lua (my original language!), and I'm just about to finish up my undergraduate degree in Computer Science at Beloit College. If you're in the Midwest and looking for a junior engineer with a good deal of internship experience, hit me up!

Hello! I'm a junior dev looking for a job, preferably in the Seattle area, but I'm open to remote or relocating. I'd love to meet up with anyone else in the industry. I've travelled Central America a lot and can't wait to go back.

 

Welcome to DEV! Sorry, I don't know of any openings near Seattle, but good luck on your job search!

 

Thank you! And no worries, that would have been too easy.

Hello Guys, i'm a growthhacker in a recruitment/tech company in Tunisia, i discovered this website through some webscraping tutorial, and it loved i !

I'm new to programming, and willing to learn basics for a better understanding of my job, and for automation purpose, since i'm always using premade tools, i found myself stuck without coding skills, so i'm learning python, (sorry for bad english, not my mother tongue) excited to be here and learn from you guys !

 

Welcome to dev.to! Best of luck for your journey as a developer.

 

Hey Everybody! I'm Jesse. I live in boulder... I love Jamstack tech, linux... shoot just all of it. I work as an integration software developer at a small PEO... hello pythong!

I found this by accident looking at a post about prisma multi-tenancy applications. Really excited to get to know everyone here.

 

Welcome to DEV Jesse! I love all of it too ๐Ÿคฃ This is the right place for that!

 

Hello, I come from an engineering background in electronics but I discovered that I don't want it to be what I do for a living. I specialize in hacking electronic gadgets. for example, in my last project, I hacked a coffee machine and made it accept bitcoin and ether as a payment.

I left my job in the last march on a journey to find what I really want to do. and I discovered I like writing code all day long which is something I used to like doing during my college days, so here I am.

I am currently learning flutter and dart, I believe in learning by doing so am currently working on a simple app that helps people stay connected with other people whether for professional purposes or to keep your social life intact.

so I appreciate any advice about skills, tools I need to learn on my journey in software development.

I am super excited to be here with this amazing community. Have a good day, people.

 

Welcome to DEV! Flutter and Dart look neat - I've wanted to experiment with them for awhile. What do you like about them so far?

As for advice I'd say: just keep doing what you're doing! The journey can seem long and difficult, but if you just keep doing a little at a time, day by day - eventually you'll get to where you want to go. So don't stop! Keep learning, and keep doing.

Good luck!
