Editor guide

Hello to all that are new to DEV.
I'm Katie, one of the basic moderators. My unofficial title: DEV cheerleader 😊

I want to welcome all of 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 with your own post.

Be sure to read my latest post


Hi everyone, thanks for letting me join here. I saw this is a good web discussion. I think is the best after I read it for a while.

I'm a beginner front end developer, I just started my career as a dev since mid 2019. I throw away my 8 years experience as an electrical engineer even though I have already become a manager in JABIL CIRCUIT, and start fresh as a dev.

I always loved computer since I was a kid, so I think it's worth it to throw away my previous career and become what I always loved. I hoped I could become a great developer and contributing to other devs like all of you.


Hello. I like your post, and it spoke to me in particular because my original major was Electrical Engineering! I was made to take a class in c++ programming, and it hooked me so much I changed my major to Computer Science. Good post. I look forward to meeting more like minded people on here.

Math major, required to take CSC classes, got hooked.


Hi, Katie! Thanks for being around to cheer us on and support us! It's nice seeing a community full of folks with that attitude, and thanks for being our champion!


Thank you for the welcome and boost.

Keep up the great work.

Hi Katie,
Thanks for the welcome.
I'm hope to document my return to web development after TV/video production for 10 years. I'm in the process of taking on the challenges of learning modern coding skills development as well as the job hunt in middle age. Fingers crossed.

Hello there!

I'm Renan, a 28-year old programmer from Brazil. I'm father of two wonderful girls, I'm graduated as a IT Manager (but thankfully I have no intentions on managing anything beyond my code) and I know a bit of this and a bit of that about PHP, SQL and JS.

I'm getting familiar on how stuff works here and someday I might feel confident enough to write something for all of you amazing guys, but for now I'll stick to asking and learning.

Hope to get more in touch with you guys, I feel that I can learn and give a lot here!


Great. This is a good way to get the hang of things...


Hello there! How are you today? =)


(greetings :all)

My name's Jeffrey Desir (written: jffrydsr) and I am, among the hyper-creative, conscientious and scatter-brained members here, not entirely sure what I .do.
eHrM Started real-life with a sprint in Behavioral Psych & Comp Sci (A.I. dreams), and limped the rest of the way to Applied Maths - & now a full-stack web-dev student at Lambda School **(Great but too late 😐).
eHrM I'm proficient in Java, Python, Ruby, BrainF*ck (no, jk. 😐) & HTML/(S)CSS/JS, though I love to code _specifically & primarily in **Clojure
EhRm I'm trying to formalize and share my writings in applied mathematics, TSO programming, philosophy/theology, and other pontifications in life.

Overall, I'm learning to connect "my selves" into a functioning unit and with other Selfs to practice collaborating and sharing ideas for my burgeoning freelance career in, you guessed, all of the things.

Fun Fact: I know I can't be alone in this superposition of career focuses with open-source more accessible and profitable than ever before, nor will it be the end of me. Yet, I still hesitate to press submit scared to step into the unknown, but after 4 revisions and this cafe closing; I'm here to grow new connections and wisdom for my life tasks that seems to involve just a little bit of everything.


I noticed you like java, have you tried Kotlin yet?


I've checked out the documentation and it seems like cleaner Java with some simplified and modern conventions - it seems to be widely supported and hostable which is nice but it almost reminds me too much of Java to not just use what I know, for the moment. :P What do you think of it? The standalone compiler thing is hard to wrap my head around.

I personally like using much more than java, I can write the same code in half the time and everything gets automatically integrated with the build process, so you don't have to think about it.

Yeah I think now it's worth getting into maybe in some coding challenges cause you're right, much less boilerplate and smarter class types. after learning Clojure I'm finding less and less utility in "regular" languages these days but it's also about the build flow so meh, everyone should already strive to be a polyglot IMO


Hi! I'm a computer science geek, working in Dev for 20 years. I once tried to become a UX designer and I hit a wall. I now learned to embrace the fact that I'm really a hybrid, so I hope to morph into a UX Engineer for the rest of my career. Hope to find like-minded individuals in this space!


Hi! I’m also thinking that a hybrid role would best suit me. What steps do you plan to take to morph your career from UX Designer to UX Engineer?


Hi Kelly! I made this website my home page so I can read a little bit every day. I feel in my case I need to flex my visual muscle and I found here a great blog too that gave me a ton of extra info! happy to share anything I come across with you!


by @emmawedekind who I'll be following too!


Thank you, ser0pjx! Totally taken aback by - and enjoyed - the β€œBecome a Unicorn” headline on the uxengineer.com website πŸ¦„

Happy to hear you liked it Kelly! there is a place fo us !


Hello people,

I am Bogdan, 24 and I am programmer. I have worked 1.5 years in automotive industry and in the last year I am working as a web developer.

Excited to be here and to have all this info at my disposal.

Wish you all the best πŸ€—


Exciting to hear you're moving into WebDev, what languages?


Well I am using Java, AngularJS, TypeScript and for Database PostgreSQL.

I have been doing fullstack tasks, but lately my main focus was on backend part. 😁


I am Prosper Otemuyiwa. I've heard a lot about dev.to and decided to join today. I love Laravel with my life.


Lol welcome Prosper :)


Thank you so much Gift :)


Hello fam, am new here, basically undergoing a course in web design.


Hey there!

I'm Raman, a full-stack JavaScript developer with over 9 years of experience and CEO at CreativeIT, a software house in Belarus. Here I’m responsible for technical consulting, negotiating with existing and potential clients, and managing our team. I'm also an active contributor to open-source github.com/CreativeIT. On dev.to, I’m going to create my own blog, share experience, and discuss ideas.

Hope, I'll become a great part of this community!


Hey there! It's nice to meet you! A great profile, it's cool that your products have received so many stars on GitHub!)


Hi, everyone!

I've been lurking on Dev.to for a bit now, and I'm just getting around to finally saying hello. I started learning web development part-time with the Flatiron School in October, and I've been enjoying Ruby and OOP. I can't believe how much I've already learned! If you're an expert or a new learner who happens to be diving into the world of Ruby, let's connect. Learning is more fun with friends, and mentors are welcomed.

As a full-time job, I'm a senior graphic designer at a decently large custom apparel company in Dallas. Prior to that, I was a math teacher and a graduate researcher in philosophy and linguistics. I focussed in a field of philosophy called ontology, specifically in relation to issues in symbolic logic, philosophy of language, and philosophy of literature. If you want to know what that means, shoot me a message or comment below! I love to talk about it! While I enjoyed philosophy and language a TON, I really really enjoy coding. =]

Fun fact: I'm also a CrossFit and USA Weightlifting coach! If you've never tried it, I highly suggest it... CrossFit is intentionally data-driven and definitely resonates well with programmers, engineerings, and doctors... anyone who thinks analytically will enjoy it! I swear! If you've ever tried CrossFit or are really into some other form of fitness (e.g. yoga, F45, pilates, OrangeTheory), comment below. I love to hear about fitness journeys!


Good to see a fellow lurker who's recently converted :)


Hi Dev,
I am Fadeyinmi. I am a beginner in everything web development. I have had training in HTML, CSS and now starting Javascript. I hope to build a career in Web development as a full stack developer though seeing what I have to learn at times feels pretty daunting but I am here to stay. I sort a seasoned mentor who can guide me through building a good career in Web development and much more. Thank you.


Welcome on Dev.to !


Howdy Katie and all! πŸ‘‹ ...and Happy Holidays! .and so forth.

I am an oldster who is a slow learner, but I keep showing up.
In particular, I am interested in learning about Open Source Spatial Development, including cli, web, and console stuff. I lean toward the Python flavor of that genre, but would be interested in all things Spatial Development to be sure.

If I had to choose a fave library it would easily be GDAL > ogr.

Also, if anyone has an opinion on an open, friendly, active social chat area focusing in and of that world, please let me know.

One more thing: I am in the process of attempting to get a static site up and running and intend to use Hugo.

Meanwhile, here is a pic...because I can πŸ˜„


Hi, I am Plato and I love learning stuff.

I think I am a good example of the saying "jack of all trades, master of none". I work in a bootstrapping startup. The languages I work with are, swift, python, ruby, golang, javascript and PHP mostly. I also dabble on Lua and java not so frequently. I also love woodworking & electronics and have done a few projects involving these.

I came across this website in my google feed. Don't know how, but I recently started getting many stories from this website on my google feed. So thought of checking it out. And to be frank I am loving what I see :D


Excellent! How do you like Lua?


Hello everyone. I have learned more about coding at Refcode-where anyone interested in computer gets a chance to learn about coding or computer programming. Since then, I love coding and planning to persue my future career as a web developer. am simply here as an student to learn more and more!!. Thanks for having this Community here.


I'm a full stack web developer with over 10 years of experiences in Web development based on following skills:
PHP, NodeJS, React/Redux, Vue, Angular, Laravel, Codeigniter, Python, Golang, SQL(Mysql, MongoDB, MSSql, Sqlite3), Git, Docker.
I also have experiences on teamwork, project management for about 5 years.
I'm glad to be able to meet excellent friends here and learn everything from you, excellent friends.

Hi folks!

After years of working on the business side of tech, I'm finally taking the leap and re-learning how to code starting with Python.

DEV is the community I wish existed when I started learning to code about 8 years ago, and I'm so happy that it exists now.

Looking forward to learning alongside all of you!


Hi Kelly. Welcome aboard. Also retracing my steps back to programming. I have done all sorts of Java and servlet programming in the past but now my focus in on learning python especially as it relates to the web. I look forward to an educative adventure here.


Hi Kelly, great to hear you’re getting back into coding. Have fun with it!


Hello everyone, my name is deepak lor khatri and i have interests in embedded electronics, programming and science in general. I am currently pursuing biotechnology and i usually spend my time working on projects related to bioelectronics and machine learning.


Hi Deepak. Welcome to the DEV community. I look forward to seeing your posts.


I would love to share my work with the community, working on a neuron signal acquisition front end electrode array chip with 16 0.5mm pads, after completing the software and hardware i will share the project or maybe i should start with a jekyll site on github for short updates like in part series then complete post here. What do you say?

GitHub with updates sounds good. Most people here are familiar with it.

Will do that then thank you so much for your generous support.

Hello world! I'm Amina. βœ§β—(⁰▿⁰)β—œβœ§

My low-key obsession with python brought me here. I am learning it for my computer sci GCSE and it's become an active hobby of mine, although I can't do much yet. ┐( ∡ )β”Œ

I also came here to see what I can learn about engineering (something I've always been interested in but haven't had any experience of).

I can't wait to see what I learn on here. Nice to meet you all!
