Hello! It's a pleasure to virtually meet you all! My name is Kelly and I am currently a personal trainer, nutritionist, and metabolic technician at Life Time Fitness. I have developed a deep interest in combining health and fitness with technology to facilitate client improvement in health and nutrition.

I am currently exploring my interest in the tech sector and seeking the assistance and mentorship of others. I am learning to code and I have been engaged in creating a fitness app with a colleague. I am looking to acquire more related experience in the area where fitness and technology intersect and then ultimately become a complete full- stack web developer.

I would be truly grateful if I could explore my interest with you all and learn more about my career options in the technology sector.

Thank you and happy new year!

For instance, if you're wondering how to post an article, check out this helpful tutorial @chrisachard wrote:

Or if you're curious about how that embed above ๐Ÿ‘† works โ€” it's a liquid tag! โ€” you can see the Markdown to make that happen and more in our Editor Guide.

Again if any questions come up, don't hesitate to reach out. ๐Ÿ˜€

Hi everyone and Happy New Year! I've been hooked to this platform ever since I started exploring the idea of becoming a software engineer. I'm excited to connect, share and give/receive support as I embark on my journey to becoming a software engineer (going the self-taught route).

I'm currently a work-at-home and homeschooling mom with a background in Materials Science & Engineering. I also have been blogging over the past 12 years. My coding journey began when I started launching Wordpress-based sites.

I'm interested in enhancing my tech skillset so I can shape a more flexible career that is beneficial for my entire family. After exploring coding bootcamp options, I've realized that the self-taught route is what will work best for my lifestyle right now. I'm absolutely open to any resources that were helpful to those that went the self-taught route to becoming a software engineer!

I look forward to connecting with you all!ย

mpuckett profile image
Michael Puckett

Iโ€™m mostly self taught! And youโ€™re already an engineer so it should be much easier for you. ๐Ÿ˜…

I think a good starting point is knowing how to fiddle with examples. One great site for that is called JSFiddle. There are others too. I really like Codepen. If you are curious, you can just change things and see what happens. If something breaks you can just refresh. After that you will want to get a local environment set up. You might want to have a goal of getting NPM installed on the command line and then using Create React App.

The other starting point will be getting good at reading documentation and googling for explanations. I think the React and Vue docs are both pretty good. And I end up on Stack Overflow for specific solutions to problems many times throughout my day.

Cheers!

Hi all, my first venture on to the internet as a developer.

I have been working as a dev for 3 years and enjoy using microsoft technologies.

I was drawn here from reading posts suggested by Google recently on my news feed and really enjoyed this website.

My goals for this year are too learn more about Blazor server and then when its ready, Blazor web assembly.

adamjmilton profile image

Thats an awesome goal, Kyle? What will you do once you learn more? What will you do with that skill?

Collapse
kyleuk profile image
Kyle-uk

Thanks f0r taking an interest!

I spend all my time working on a legacy app, so I don't get to improve my dev skills in my day job as much as I should and never start anything from scratch.

I can see that Blazor will be something new that will fundamentally change the .Net development approach. I hope to learn a skill that will avoid me having to dive into the JS technologies too much and give me an edge once jobs are asking for it, something my day job doesn't currently do.

Once I know more, I will use it to develop small websites to help speed up my greenfield development as I never get to start anything from scratch.

Howdy Folks. I have about 24 years of experience in IT and development. I have a ton of knowledge ranging from C#, patterns, refactor, DevOps, Web, SQL, Automated Testing etc.

I have over the past 4 years help guide a refactor/restructure project which involves a giant monolithic suite of applications. We now have a very well structured backend, API, CI/CD, Tests and Code processes. DevOps baby. I was hoping to write about that experience here with a few articles as I have learned many lessons that should be shared with a community. This looks like the right place. Take care for now.
