πŸ‘‹ Hi DEV! I'm Mariz and I'm a Junior Software Engineer (mostly dealing with C++ and C#). I initially studied Computer Science with a dream to work on space rockets πŸš€ But I have long since adjusted my goals to:
πŸ‘©β€πŸ’» become a full stack developer,
πŸ‘ be a more active contributor to the open source community, and
⚑ pioneer... something.

Random fact about me: My MBTI is INTP!

I hope you all have a great day and maybe you could share random facts about yourself to start it off~

Random fact about myself is that I have this weird mark on my left hand that looks like a bruise. Most of the people I've shown it to have said that it's a birthmark, but neither my parents nor my grandmother remembers seeing it when I was younger. And if anyone is curious, no, it does not and had never hurt.

Hi Rania. Sounds like natural pigmentation. Some cells change color as we grow older. I am not a doctor but I have seen this a few times with a number of people, and they have told me that story. Hope that helps!

I am new to the coding world. What is "MBTI & ISTP?" Also, what is the difference between CSS and C++? I am sooooo confused...

C++ is high level object oriented programming language that is used to build desktop and games and other applications for hardware and embedded systems. While CSS Stands for Cascading Style Sheet which is a language for designing the appearance and interface for websites.

I am good in HTML, CSS, JS & PHP and use Laravel .. it's one of the most powerful and enjoyable PHP frameworks out there.
Now am learning MERN stack and it is just WOW! 😍

Web Dev is my hoppy .. however, I am learning a lot passionatly to become a Professional Full Stack Web Developer; so I can change my career and my life.
Although I have a lot of obstacles for I'm living in Syria .. where many services like MongoDB & Firebase for example are banned due to the US Sanctions against my country. πŸ˜”

Yes, PHP is damn easy language to start your career. At that time I have two option either to start with PHP or ASP.

I started PHP because of XAMPP One tool for everything to start with no additional step, configuration. ASP was a bit harder to configure as starter.

But in 2009 I switch to ASP.NET when Scott Guthrie announce ASP.NET and web service support [WebMethod] :).

YES!! XAMPP!! Oh man the good old times!
I've moved on Linux since then (I remember spending all my days trying to install Debian, configuring the network, the sound, starting to feel discouraged and reinstalling Windows after a whole weekend with no computer!).

I went on the Java, then the Python way myself. I think the key element is to be happy (and efficient) with the programming language we use everyday :)
