Hey there! I've been a tech blogger and marketer since 2015.) In my blog here, I share insights into the technology world and software development. I generally cover such topics as programming (web and mobile development, the creation of enterprise solutions, technology overviews, etc.), IoT, blockchain, and so on. Will be happy to discuss tech ideas and issues with you!)


Nice to see you taking an interest in blockchain! Its applications are limitless, and it's fun to ponder the possibilities sometimes. :)


Thanks Diana, I will came to your page


Wow, nice, I welcome you as well as my self


I'm good thanks. Where have you acquired your tech knowledge from or most of it?


looking forward to read some of your articles / work ! :)


Hey there! I focus on developing frontend since 2013. I was always interested in sharpening my skills and making the users happy, because I saw and used so many bad or not exactly ideal UIs myself. Actually I started much earlier though it's not directly related to what I do now. The only common thing is building good UIs, no matter what tools and platforms I use for that.

Some time ago I started mentoring my friends about frontend and development in general. Now I see many pitfalls into which often fall many newbies, so I started helping out people in thematic chats. Instead of solving actual problems I always try to just direct people in the right direction to help develop their own intuition quicker. I see many problems in that area, which I can't solve as whole this way.

So I decided to start writing posts-roadmaps for beginners to help people choose a bit more appropriate solutions for typical problems. Currently I see a lot of resistance, because of many tools currently marketed as the one true way to build software. Some technologies, buzzwords or even whole stacks are being forced from various sources. I plan to describe typical problems arising from using these solutions in general cases and help to avoid ruining projects in result.

So the end goal is the same as before: making the users happy. But this time I'll try to do it by making developers happy, so they have more time to make their users happy.

And I see dev.to as an ideal platform for that task.

P.S. I just signed up (before that I only read posts) and I already see the level of friendliness. Thanks a lot for such a great place to be in!!!


Making developers happy is a noble goal :)


For now I just published simple boilerplate for webpack for everyone to enjoy. Hope it'll help someone github.com/faergeek/webpack-ssr-hm...


Hi Sergey! Welcome to Dev. What do you think would be the first 5 things i should take in order to start my way learning more to begin learning about front end development.


Hi! I'll post exactly about that first. Very soon. But initially I thought mostly about JS and in context of React (just because I use it myself). Do you also have questions about where to start in HTML/CSS? I'd add some resources in the list about that too. But need to choose the best in class (in my opinion, obviously) before that anyway. So you'd better just subscribe to not count that I remember to send you a link ;-)

Appreciate it. Would love to subscribe!


Great story Sergey, glad to have you here!


Hi everyone, I'm currently pursuing my PhD, on applying machine learning in healthcare. This site looks neat!


Hi! New here too, just wanted to say that I think healtcare is in my opinion the field where I want to see ML succeed the most and I love seeing people doing exactly that! Best wishes and good look with your studies!


Welcome to the community! I build software for the healthcare industry, so I'll probably run into your work sooner or later. :-)


Thanks Jesse. I am currently working on retina, and my aim is to productionise my research work into the healthcare industry, to help people prevent vision loss.


Hi Jingles. Good luck with the PhD!


that's great - i am also very interested in this topic ! :)


What a great application for machine learning! I'd love to learn it myself but don't really know where to start, any tips?


Hey Coner, it really depends on what you're interested in. I think the most common now is image processing, and that's where I started. Wrote an article about image segmentation [towardsdatascience.com/biomedical-...], which is part of the process to detect glaucoma disease.
X-ray and MRI are also pretty popular. There is a survey call "A Survey on Deep Learning in Medical Image Analysis" if you are interested to find out about other image processing applications.

Sounds a great place to start to be honest. I've always had an interest in medical field although not being professionally involved in it, is there some projects I could possibly contribute towards while developing my skills?

Also, from the perspective of learning machine learning, what language would be best? I know JS has tensorflow but I hear python is great for this stuff. Any thoughts?

There are past competitions on Kaggle such as Diabetic Retinopathy Detection and
APTOS 2019 Blindness Detection, probably many others. Where there are datasets, and codes to learn from others how they did it. That would likely develop machine learning knowledge. Open-source project to contribute, unlikely, not that I know of. Most medical data are not open source.

Python will certainly be the way to go for ML. For me, I use the PyTorch framework. With Python, you get to use the system's resources and GPU. TensorFlow.js is only mainly used for presentation, after training a model (with Python), port the model into a "lite" version, and present model capability in web browser (with TFJS). Although end-to-end training can be done in TFJS, it is very limited to data size and computation. See my end-to-end training article to predict time series with TFJS

Thanks for the overview. As you can expect my knowledge of machine learning at the minute is quite primitive. But, I'll definitely be looking into some of the technologies you mentioned and thr article you linked. Thanks once again and I wish you the best of luck with your work. ๐Ÿ‘


Hi All, I am Ravi kumar, I am machine learning enthusiast and would like to explore the world of ML and Data science


Hey together :-)
I'm a software engineer since 2009, I love speaking on conferences and sharing my knowledge about the web and Angular in workshops. I have never been a tech blogger but I want to get into it :)
My tech stack is JavaScript overall :D Node.js in the backend and Angular in the frontend, but I also use .NET Core recently a lot. For around 2 years I'm also in the WebAssembly community :)


Welcome! We're into the same types of things. Dev.to is the best technical blogging community out there. They'll encourage the crap out of you and you'll love it. Glad you're here.


I'm pretty sure there's a lot of awesome people here... who also love semicolons!

Anyway, I'm a prof. JS/TS dev who's dabbling in GoLang. Advocate for simplicity, a11y and standardized solutions. Love React, and I am utterly addicted to coffee.


Hi Flemming, nice to meet you!
I'm a dev who loves JS and Python and I'm also dabbling in Golang.
(No semicolons! Muahahaha! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ)
Would love to chat over remote coffee.


Hi! I'm frequent reader of dev.to blogs and decided to create an official account today!

I'm a self-taught full stack developer, primarily focusing on backend. I'm an experimental learner, meaning that I've touch (or written a program) in a variety of programming languages and tools. Formerly @SheCanTech on Twitter. I previously interned at Microsoft and The Washington Post and am currently a student majoring in CS and minoring in Mathematical Sciences. I hope to post #100DaysofX and how-to blogs on things like Spring Boot, Scala, Tensorflow.js, WebXR, and whatever else I can think or feel like sharing.

I'm also on the job market for a new job and have my first ever on-site Google interview this Friday. Wish me luck and/or send me pointers, please.


Hello, community!

I am a full-stack JS expert with over 9 years of experience and CEO at CreativeIT, a software house located Belarus. Here Iโ€™m responsible for technical consulting, negotiating, and managing our team.

Being an active contributor to open source development, Iโ€™m proud that many of our companyโ€™s products have a high number of stars on GitHub. Hope, I will become a great part of this community.)


Hi...I'm solomon from Ghana west Africa..a first year student studying information technology at one of the best technology institution in my country, Kwame Nkrumah University of science and Technology (K.N.U.S.T)
I will like to learn more and new things from you, thank you.


Hello Solomon,
I hope you find what you're looking to get here. I'm new too and hope we can all learn from here.


Hello World!

I am three weeks into my coding bootcamp and ready to record and share my learning throughout the process. I have been teaching the past few years and am ready to hop into the tech industry with my new skills in coding.

I am interested in both front and back end and think I will pick a side once I have gotten a feel for both in the bootcamp.

Happy Hacking!


Hi Mary, I'm Katie, one of the basic moderators here on DEV (unofficial title: DEV cheerleader ๐Ÿ˜Š)

I want to welcome you to the DEV community and let you know that you'll find lots of help and support here for all your coding needs.

Don't hesitate to ask questions or contribute new ideas.
Good luck in bootcamp!


welcome into the coding world !


Hi All, Solomon here. I'm a Front-End Developer sharpening my skills in Javascript and hoping to add more tools to my stack.


Helllooooo, I'm Alireza, 20 years old from Iran, I'm a Full-Stack Developer working remotely in 2 different companies, I mostly code in Python and JavaScript sometimes, I signed up and I have no idea why, I'm thinking about starting to write blog posts, maybe that's the reason
I use Arch BTW :v


Hey Alireza!

Sounds like you've found a great working setup. I've been tentatively looking at ways to get remote to work here in Sweden for some time but would seem that we're not quite there yet. Do you have any tips on making the remote life work with your private life?


Hey Axel,

Actually I thought there should be more opportunities in Europe

Here in Iran, we mostly use Telegram as the messenger, There are a lot of Telegram groups related to the field we work in, I try to answer the questions and participate in the discussions, I try to gain reputation doing this, People won't pay you to answer their questions, and u have no responsibility, But if you do this the right way, people can understand about your knowledge by reading your answers

Community helped me a lot, I answer questions on Telegram groups, Forums, StackOverflow and ...
I learnt a lot from community and by being active on the community I can gain reputation and help people

So in a nutshell, I recommend u working on yourself as your personal brand.

I'm not a native English speaker, Sorry for bad English


Hello everyone!

I have designed and implemented a practical programming language called MANOOL.

Right now I am writing my first white paper or article about the subject, which I am going to cross-post on dev.to as well as on the official Web site (manool.org), and it should be complete shortly.

Looking forward for your comments...


What sets Manool apart from other languages?


Unfortunately, any short answer would leave you with even more questions, and what really matters is, as always, details. That said, on the MANOOL official Web site the shortest description is:

MANOOL is a programming language with the same purpose as Python, Ruby, PHP, Common Lisp, or Scheme but it is designed with one central idea in mind:

  • to maximize the expressive power / implementation complexity ratio.

The author's implementation fits in only 10 KLOC in C++, yet it exhibits competitive run-time performance.



I am data architect, project manager, Python developer, data engineer from Moscow. I run NGO "Infoculture" infoculture.ru dedicated to open data and digital preservation.

I write about Russian government data and IT at begtin.tech

My latest project is spending.gov.ru about government spending of Russian federation.

Feel free to ask me about government data strategies and govtech.


Hi All,Aman here I'm a tech enthusiast exploring to develop my front-end skills currently started working on reactjs,stumbled here from the react site,excited to be part of the community looking forward to explore,learn and share.Happy learning folks.


I love to make the impossibilities possible in ICT.

So glad to be in this community of highly influential Pros. Am here to learn and contribute to the growth of Tech world.

Thank you.


Welcome. Community members are here to help and support you!


Hi, I started my journey into web development in 2016, and it has been an amazing one. currently I am very good with frontend development( just HTML5, javascript and Css). however recently i dive into the deep seas of Backend development( Ruby( rails), PHP(laravel)). I hope to share my wonderful stories of my journey as i swim in the seas of logics.


Hi everyone!

I'm a backend developer and I used to teach programming classes in Brazil. Now I'm moving to Stockholm and I'm going to use mostly NodeJS and Java in my new job.

I share content in Portuguese but I'm open to talk about anything that involves programming. :-)


Hi Joviane, welcome!
I'd love to hear about your experience teaching programming.


Hello everyone!
I am a Software Engineer Master student currently writing my Master's Thesis in NLP/ML and I am very passionate about technology, and I hope I can satisfy my passion even more with this blog :)


Hello Everyone! I'm an IT student currently working towards a bachelor in Computer and Information Systems with a minor in web development. Started my first project this year in my spare time building a LAMP based website on a Raspberry Pi 3. Few interests outside of development would be reading fantasy novels, SharePoint management, the odd video game, and hiking. I'm excited to talk more with you all.


Hey All, I am a graduate developer currently doing most of my work in c# within CMSs like Sitecore and Tridion while also trying to learn some front-end tech. I only found out about this community a couple of weeks ago through Reddit or the TLDR newsletter can\t really remember which one to my shame. Anyway hello!!


Hello my nane is John. Basically I'm here to familiarise myself, with developer and technologists. Ihave recently started to learn Blockchain technology. To add more background to my career as a tech talent recruiter.


Hello everyone, nebelgrau here. I describe myself as an aspiring data witcher, as in "data practitioner" more than "scientist". I have a background in engineering, but I'd never programmed until I decided to learn data science with Python almost two years ago. I'm also interested in embedded programming, to have data gathered from sensors and then ideally implement machine learning on the edge: that's why I started with MicroPython first, but I'm also learning Rust and C, mostly for embedded use on Cortex-M MCUs. I hope to learn new stuff here!


That's so cool! I love this kind of programming, it sounds so fun. Much has become possible with the rise of Python and we can truly do anything with it now.

My focus is more on web programming. From how websites look and function to the servers that make it all possible.


Santhosh Yadav, my Angular 8 instructor introduced me to this community. I love to follow up with the growing technologies. Want to discuss tech ideas and issues with you all for solutions and sharing knowledge.


Hello! I'm a junior developer looking to learn more about the software development world. For now, I won't be doing much posting, mostly reading, but perhaps I'll find something worthwhile to share with you guys soon!


Hello World! I'm excited for share my experiences here, I know that my English is not so good but is are a more one motive for me try writing here. My skills are with Angular, CSS, Laravel, Usability and Mobile, specially with hybrid apps with Ionic, Firebase and Cordova.

I'm author of the book Cordova Advanced and Phonegap and always that possible, I'm try write in my blog.

I hope share good content.


Buom dia Diego!
Yes, please share your experience.
I know that a lot of people are confused of what multi-platform makes sense in which context.
Don't worry about not being a native English speaker, I also plenty of "errors". Who cares?


Hi Jean, thanks for the words positive!


Hi I'm Daniel Chukwurah, a front-end developer. I'm happy to be here.
I'm transitioning from being an agriculturist to a developer. I started coding last year and I hope to find the support I need here.

I'm currently learning VueJs.


Hello world! I am a new developer! I will be sharing and unpacking my experiences as I learn full stack web development. I have been working with Javascript, HTML, CSS, React, and Ruby, so far.
I am so excited to learn and grow as a developer!!

I am learning so this will likely be largely reflective and at times, error-ridden.. But here's to the journey!! :}
Feel free to reach out regarding anything!


Welcome Kimberly! Excited to see your coding process and learning grow


I am an Electronic Engineer.
I have keen interest in Computer science and IT.
So I joined the community.
In the field of IoT and smart electronic devices Electronic developers and Software developers are engaged, so I think there should be collaboration and knowledge sharing.


Hi there,

I have keen interest in coding and IOT.
So I joined the community.
In the field of IoT and smart electronic devices Electronic developers and Software developers are engaged, so I think there should be collaboration and knowledge sharing.I wish I could gain more knowledge in this platform.


Hey there!! I am an engineering student and I know basic programming with python and c++. Now I am focusing on being a Data analyst and I am interested in ML and open source contribution.
I just signed up and I am excited for this new journey. Will be happy to interact with you all!!


Howdy! I am excited to finally join up. I've been working my way back to engineering for 7 years now, and I couldn't be more excited to rejoin the pack. I have spent my career growing as a business person, learning sales, solution architecture, consulting, and leadership. Hopefully, with the help of this community I can resharpen my hard skills and fully polish what I bring to my next team.

Feel free to reach out and discuss any topic you like, but my current focused list includes:

  • Web and Mobile Tech
  • Security and Identity for all
  • Game Development
  • IoT and automation
  • also music and brewing

Glad to be here!


I am curious about what you mean by "Security and Identity for all", can you elaborate ?


Absolutely! I am getting a kick out of learning about security, privacy, and digital identity. Hopefully, we (the collective we) will make these technologies more and more approachable for general use and lead to widespread use.

My current tinkering has me trying to add physical identity to an api using Yubico's technology as well as playing with more end-to-end encryption services like sync or keybase.


Hey guys! I'm a many hats kinda developer ๐Ÿ˜…, I'm always trying something new. I've been doing software development professional for about 3 year, started of with mobile now I'm on the web (front and backend).

I'm trying to immerse myself more into the community. I hope this a good place to start.


I just joined but wanted to share that I'm a many kinda hats designer/developer. I think its important to try new things with design and dev - its how I learn.

If you ever want to collaborate on something let me know. I'm working on building opensource tools for journalists, maybe you share the passion?


Hey ! That sounds cool ๐Ÿ‘! I don't know too much about journalism ( I see myself as a bad writer ). However, I I'd wanna do my open source stuff so I'm not opposed.

Still trying to find where my passion is most strong.

Well no pressure at all, but I am working on setting up some tools to help help with collaboration on radiofree.org/2020 (a test site which will go live sometime in early 2020 to replace radiofree.org. If you want to contribute to the project, join here: radiofree.org/2020/join/

Once joined and logged in, navigate to the WordPress Dashboard and leave a comment in the chat there. There we can discuss new features and ideas (this is open to anyone reading this post too)

no pressure!


Hi everyone! I am a Software Engineer from Bangladesh, working for Infolytx. I joined the industry March this year. I mainly focus on backend development. I have also worked on machine learning and nlp for my current employer.
I want to use dev.to to share my experience and knowledge gained working as a Software Engineer. You can visit my profile and read my first article. I'll keep sharing as I learn!
Thank you!


Hi all, I have been working in software for around 7 years now. Started as Tech Support and moved my way into QA. I consider myself quite the noob with programming but have written some Selenium automated tests scripts (in C#).

I am an avid gamer who is slowly getting into the modding community. I love open source and support early access games.
I am here to learn and give insight specifically on starting out in the web software industry and/or on Agile teams. Or a may just discuss video games =]

Dev.to really caught my eye, I love the interface and may even try out the mobile app. Plus open source <3


Hi everyone, I heard about dev.to during a coding bootcamp campus tour in NYC. A guy from the tour group was an engineer himself, and he referred to dev.to as the most friendly dev community out there. So here I am :)

I've worked in news/media industry for almost a decade, including 5 fruitful years at Yahoo Taiwan. In 2017 I left Yahoo (and Taiwan, my homeland) and moved to NYC to help revamp a news website.

As the first and only product manager there, I felt a strong urge to gain solid knowledge of data structure and full-stack development. Plus, I miss creating/building things.

So I left the job, recently got accepted into Access Labs coding bootcamp via WeWork/Flatiron School, and my cohort starts tomorrow.

Let the new journey begin!


Hi Everyone, I am a React Native developer working with javascript since 2015. I am always interested in learning new things in the tech world. I am currently focusing on mastering functional concepts.
I am looking forward to getting in touch with this great community.


Hey everyone, I am in a learning process with the ultimate aim of being a Full Stack Developer. In this journey, I thought it will be a good thing to document what I learn in a simpler way to make it understandable at the beginner level.


Hello everyone! I came across DEV so many times now that I knew I just had to join. The articles by Addi Osmani about web accessibility have opened my eyes to an area of coding that I never thought about. I am transitioning into tech, so far mostly Python and Django, and built my first website for an activity here in Spain (elevador-bcn.es, in case you ever visit Barcelona). In January I will be starting the Ironhack Full Stack Web Development bootcamp, which is something I would never have believed if someone had told me this three months ago. Life is full of surprises!


Hi everyone!

My name is Wesley and iโ€™ve been in the online world mostly since 2007 or so. I started doing some black-hat SEO optimizations in my teens as a first job (didnโ€™t know it was shady at the time ๐Ÿ˜…).

Through this I needed some basic HTML skills to add meta data and sometimes style some things and I rolled more and more into making Wordpress sites at first. After high school i studied computer science, but kept my love for the web and ended up getting my first job ad an employee while maintaining my own gig on the side.

Now about 6 years later iโ€™m still passionately making awesome websites and learning new things.


Hey Dudu, I have one doubt.. Where one block contains one transaction details or multiple transaction details.. For example, A send Amount t0 B, and B sends an amount to C, If A involved another transaction with C.. where these transactions are in the same block or different block

Feel free to discuss with me about your favorite subjects ;)


hello everyone,I am a noob web developer. i can make basic websites, but thing i love the most is adding new features to a websites, the amazing new functions website is able to do,making new things from scratch is real pain in the ass for me, but thinking about the new creative features is the main thing i love doing doing webd for.


Hello Devs!

I started programming before the Internet was commonplace, before Linux and before all this way to connect people. I enjoy what we can do today!
Great to be part of this community!



Hello all! I have been writing code (usually C# Javascript) for almost 20 years and have been leading small development teams for about half of that. I have done consulting, startups, in addition to the corporate life. I love working with others.. I have met so many amazing people and have built some awesome relationships - all because I get to code for living.

So I am starting a personal project at 7samurai.dev/ with the goal to help developers find other developers with similar interests and skillsets. In my experience the best way to learn, grow, succeed, is to find others that can help you accomplish a common goal.

Thanks for letting me join the community. Looking forward to the interactions!


Hey! I'm a Front-end Software Engineer working mainly with React and PHP. Came to the Dev community for some great articles and resources and because I got tired of how many articles are behind the pay wall on Medium these days! Excited to be here to learn and hopefully share as well.


Hey there! I've now just completed my first software engineering immersive course with General Assembly (with almost a year of independent study prior to that) and now I'm excited to put my name out there and join the community!

I've worked in both front and back end languages like JavaScript, React, Express, MongoDB, and much more. As a newbie, I am up to discussing any and all things web development and software engineering related, and would love to explore any projects fellow developers are willing to share.

Non-tech related, I am an artist, cinephile, and video game enthusiast. I'm very excited to have found this site and I look forward to meeting all sorts developers on here :)


Hello guys! Myself Vinish Kapoor. I am a software consultant, working on Oracle technologies since 1999. I used to post articles/tutorials on the topics I learned from my experience on my two blogs, foxinfotech.in and howto-guides.com

Will love to share my thoughts and experiences with you here on Dev.to community. Thanks.


Hello! I am a developer of desktop applications such as web applications, I am a follower of free tenologies so my operating system is deepin linux that is why the programs that I develop are open source and I consider that knowledge must be free for everyone and I enjoy help others


Hello my name is Dulce, I am an illustrator and recently I started studying development. I've found a lot of help here so I decided to join the community :)


My name is Zach, I am a senior software engineer at a startup in Chicago. I am currently working in the MERN stack and loving everything javascript. Looking forward to joining the community to learn new things and keep up with the tech world!

Fun Fact: I am currently working on my own personal website and would love to see some examples from you wonderful people.


I'm grateful to have found this community. I was searching about Bulma vs. Foundation and landed on post here and decided to join the community. I'm working alone in an office, so this is a nice place to visit.

I studied graphic design, I'm an art school dropout that got into Flash while working as a designer, that's how far back my experience is going.

I consider myself more frontend, but I built a little CRUD PHP/mySQL system that I used to generate XML for Flash a while back. I've also done lots of WordPress theming and some devops. I really like all aspects of dev and consider myself autodidact, but it's really just trying to learn from anyone that teaches. My hope is to always maintain a beginners mind.

I've settled on my stack now. I started learning Laravel, got away from it and heading back, I really like it, love VueJS too. Loving Laracasts again.

Kind regards,


I didn't realize there was a welcome thread ๐Ÿ˜‚ Hello, I'm Andrew, I'm 42 and teaching myself Java. I've written various blogs over the years, and decided to document my learning journey. I've tried (and failed) to learn programming since 2016, but I'm determined to not fail this time! Looking forward to reading all your blogs.


Hey every one! I've been web developer since 2012, i constantly searching for solutions to solve day to day problems, you know it. And i've been struggling for a few days with a thing called docker for a work project and fortunately i found a post in this community and helps me big time, so i joined you!

PD: I'm from Mexico, sorry for my poor english, i'm working to improve it.


Hey. I've come from a "Not-Really-A-Dev" type of developer hacking with php and Wordpress into a real respect for developing once I got into the flow with JavaScript, React and Nodejs. Javascript ignited my love for programming, and it's so much fun! The handbook "Code Complete" is a must-read for anyone that's writing code. I joined this community because it's fun seeing how people choose to tackle problems and I go by the golden rule that everyone will do things differently and that's the beauty of coding, there's no one right way IF your goal is to make a working product. :) I work on multiple projects both as a developer and manager.


Hey everyone.
I am a mild JavaScript programmer and a cyber security enthusiast. I run HackerFarm (an internet camping station) near Bangalore, a place where people go through Web Development Bootcamp to upskill themselves and find better jobs.
I mostly train web fundamentals and engage them in various daily activities such as Yoga and meditation, organic farming, electric unicycling and drone flying.
Away from city bustle, we work on meaningful social tech-projects.
I am also exploring Python these days. Hope to conduct one Python bootcamp soon at Hackerfarm.

Looking forward to learn and share more with DEV community. :)


Hello! I'm always learning a lot from DEV.to and I want to give back to the community sharing some posts with things I've been learning in the last years. I'm a graphic designer / illustrator from Buenos Aires. I've been working with HTML and CSS since tables :D currently in love with SVG and CSS animations. Happy Friday everyone!


Hello, so today i have received my Hacktoberfest 2019 package with the t-shirt and the fancy stickers and all that, one sticker had "DEV" on it so i thought its short for "Developer" shurg
i was today years old when i found out that this is "DEV".

i am a 20y/old student at Thomas More (Geel) at Belgium where i study computer science. My interests are Programming, Automating software/hardware tasks, Blockchain, AI and Reverse Engineering.


Hello. ๐Ÿ‘‹

I just signed up. I am a software developer since 2000 (damn I'm getting old). As my day job I work as a senior backend PHP developer (mostly using Symfony), focus on security, do code reviews and whatever the projects demand (but I stay away from any frontend development).

In my spare time I'm learning Go, try to do some photography and maintain all Linux driven devices at home (and on my vps servers), mostly using Docker.

I'll be happy to discuss software development (in general), dev-ops and security.


Well hello! A big wave to everyone out there ๐Ÿ‘‹๐ŸŒŠ I've been hacking away for 20+ years now. I've tried many aspects of web development and even a bit of video development. I wouldn't say I'm anywhere near a master of any one element. A glass-half-full-stack developer if you will. I really like the jamstack. Svelte and Sapper make a lot of sense to me. I'm a big fan of ridiculously over-engineered blogs too. Looking forward to being a part of the community!


Hi ! I just finished my master as a developer, I was an apprentice in Cisco France and now I found a great work as Python Developer !
I'm here because I just want to be aware of what's going on ! I'm happy to join you !


I just got to know about this community while searching for a way to make eslint work in VS Code. I guess this is a great community and I'm looking forward to learn new things.

The thing about me: I spend most of my time overthinking stuff when I should be out there writing some clean code.



Good morning,

I am a trainee developer from England and I have been trying to teach myself to code for the last year or two. I have been in my new role for around 2 months and I want to learn and immerse myself into as much as I can. Happy to say hello

Hello everyone! In 2016 I decided to change the course of my career and followed a traineeship to become a Java developer. Ever since I've loved every moment of it and I keep learning new things everyday! My first job in IT was at the Dutch Tax & Customs Administration, but currently I work at a company which creates software packages for Dutch healthcare providers. Sometimes I suffer a little from imposter syndrome since I'm not schooled in IT, but that also drives me to keep learning and celebrate the small successes.
I've always had a passion for education and sharing knowledge and I recently decided I'd like to get more involved in these topics. By chance I found a DEV sticker at my current job and I looked it up out of curiosity, bringing me here. I look forward to learning a lot more, and to share my own experiences!


๐Ÿ‘‹ Hello there. My name is Ahmed Hawam,Egyptian developer, i worked as unity developer since 2017.i found this blog in Google chrome's "article for you". I think it will be great to share my experience in unity in this blog ๐Ÿ˜

Hi All! I'm front-end developer from South Korea. I usually develop front-end but, in my project i was developing full-stack. On front-end, i use Vue.js, SCSS and HTML, CSS3 and Javascript on frontend and node.js on backend.

About 4 year ago, I started for solving my curiosity. then, i turned my way in the end of the last semester. Actually my major is Business Management and I had to learn the new world's base knowledge by my-self. Everynight studied for next days and Everyday developed my first project using that i studied at last night.
At now, i don't regret! even though meeting an unexpected bugs, the process and feeling of solving the bugs is excited!

And these days, i was looking for jobs and developing a project kinda the bookmark social network for developer like pinterest or instagram. Its mottos is sharing and sharing for each other's project, knowledge and ideas!

In this year's goal is getting a remote job and launch the project as beta version.

And Thank you all dev.to team member for creating this nice group!


Hi, folks.
I'm a software engineer with a passion for software craftsmanship and learning new things. I started (when I was a teenager) with Basic, Pascal, C, C++, and continuing with C# for more than a decade. In my experience in the tech industry, I have worked with companies in areas such as media, healthcare, and telecommunication. My specialty is back-end and database technologies (such as MS SQL, MongoDB, Elastic Search, ...), particularly developing high performance, scalable APIs. I'm a problem solver by nature and strongly believe in open source (community and collaboration)
I'm here to learn an write about my experience...
Such a great community โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’™โค๏ธ


Hey all!

I'm a software engineer in San Francisco who loves using Javascript and React. I'm interested in mastering JS, playing with some new shiny tools/technology, and learning from all the great people here on dev.to


Hey folks, my name is Jim Ryan, I'm 21 years old and I am here because I like reading peoples devto articles :)


Hey. My name is Sergio and I've been programming for a good bunch of years. Firstly with C, followed by Java and now focused on web developing and working with Vue. I find sharing knowledge one of the greatest things of our time (thanks to that I could drop what I was studying, focus is what I love -programming- and make a career of it), so I'll try to make everything possible for contributing to the cause.


Hello! I started out doing Server Admin/Helpdesk work but I became interested in Coding in college and decided to try to pursue it as a career. I discovered DEV from participating in this years Hacktoberfest
