Hey. My name is Claire. I am 39 and a Python novice. Currently studying to become a full stack developer. I've been reading Dev for a while and thought it was about time I joined. I am looking to learn all I can to progress my journey. My new path. I love everything tech and value any advice or knowledge from experts or novices alike.

Hi Peter, thanks. It's been almost 10 months since the day I started and every day I like it more. It may sound weird to you but I feel comfortable being uncomfortable and learning programming gives me this opportunity so it feels like a perfect match :)

Bader B

Hello everyone!!

I'm Bader (it's an Arabic name which means Full moon), I've been working as a Support Technician for 3 years and a half now (since I graduated actually) and honestly, I hate how my job can be done by a trained monkey and how everyone on my team can be easily replaced regardless of experience because there isn't any actual skill involved,Plus the pay sucks. (Sorry if I offended anyone xP)
Also literally no one wants you to learn and nobody wants you to improve (or even improvise and think outside the box) because "We already have tasks divided by Teams and we do everything by certain procedures" (which is all gibberish and kills your brain cells because of how messed up in reality the situation is) and that thing has literally caused me embarrassment in many interviews because my CV is literally nothing to be happy about - Naturally I can't brag about Paper Jams cleared .

Anyway, I stumbled upon dev.to a couple of days ago while looking for something to help me out of my current closed-end path and I hope that this'll be the push that gets me on the right way and into a career that I actually love, which is programming.

I am a beginner in lots of aspects, but I hope to learn from you guys and share whatever knowledge I have.

Just as a note: in DEV, each user is assigned a name in the system. Yours is kilonzif and you refer to them with the @ sign. Mine is @katnel20 so using katie referred to someone else.

I wonder how hard it would be to add a performant "insta-search" feature to DEV for usernames while typing them 🤔 a lot of tools with large userbases seem to use something like that. Could be fun.

Anyways, welcome Faith!

I'm Tibi, a designer and wannabe web developer. Coding skills have saved my skin and helped me secure jobs in the past so am forever grateful for that. Forever trying to improve, I've picked up javascript many times but without much success. I've no idea what this site is. It looks like stack exchange and Medium had a baby? Anyway, I came across a few good articles on here, so I'll stick around. Love the front end. :)

Hi I'm Eric. I work in the healthcare field but want to become a developer of some sort. Currently I'm taking classes to get an associates in web design and development in my spare time. I already have a bachelors in psych with a focus on neuroscience. Hopefully I'm on the right path.

I feel like this transition might be a little challenging because i make a good living as a surgical neurophysiologist and cant afford to take a huge hit on my salary during the transition. I'm also locked into being close by to where I currently live (south central PA, USA). So there's that! HELLO WORLD!
