I'm currently attending a bootcamp and discovered this site through my instructor. I'm new to programming, I love working through challenging problems and technology in general. I want to learn more about coding and look forward to reading (and maybe even writing some of my own!) awesome development focused content here!

This is a cool site! Especially now that Medium is paywalling everything :( So decided to finally get on here and it's an awesome place!

One of the worst thing, though, is that on certain platform, they replace ' with '' and " with "".

Also, no Markdown. Not very dev-friendly.

Hello there!

I'm Juan from Barcelona. I've been working on marketing for almost 15 years, but this year I decided to learn some coding. I attended to a bootcamp to get a boost and now I'm looking for a job. A month ago, right after finish this bootcamp, I had an accident while riding my bike and get an ankle fracture, so here I am: trying to recover lost time (and my walking skill too... but that's a different subject!) :)

Thanks for the good content!

What brought me here: I read a post by Tae'lur Alexis, then decided to sign up.

I've been out of the workforce for ~3 years. Prior to that however I developed software professionally for 11 years.
I was primarily a back-end/integrations developer focusing on the .NET stack (C#/VB.NET/ASP.NET) with MSSQL databases.

I also did a bit of front end development with proficiency in jQuery/Vanilla js, CSS, and HTML though I'm far from an expert. I played around with Angular for a short while too.

On my personal time I dabbled with PHP and Python and can understand most code even if I lack familiarity with the language. I've also developed a chrome extension that had 1700+ users at one point.

I hold a B.Sc. in Electronics and Computer Science (Hons) from The University of the West Indies, Mona but it's fair to say I need a refresher in CS principles, thanks to lack of usage.

Due to complacency while in the field and the extended time off, I'm more rusty than I'd like to be and I'm therefore making a push to upgrade my skills and see where that leads.

Thanks, Chris! Chainstack is a "layer 2" solution to blockchain protocols. Basically, you can deploy and run your own node or a permissioned network with a couple of clicks. We support Ethereum, Quorum, MultiChain, Corda, and soon Hyperledger Fabric.

I love blockchains and tinkering with blockchains, so this is a dream job for me.
