Hello, I'm new too, welcome to the community and learn more
Same! Just arrived. I can't wait to check this out and expand on what I'm creating!
Now it's time to join Elon to Mars.
New to programming, trying to wrap my brain around Java Script. Higher Order Functions currently blowing it
Also new to programming, trying to blunder my way through it (but focusing on Python b/c everyone tells me it is easy....)
Any language is easy. Intent matters :D
same to bro
i'm new, i'm worrey!
Hi you're welcome too

Please contact me.
Hey Connor. I'm new to this community, too. Nice to meet you!
Sounds like we're in this together..
Warm full Welcome
I've been really proud of the work I've been doing both for my job and personal hobby over the past couple of years and am eager to share some things I've learned along my journey.
As a newbie I'm always happy to see more experienced devs ready to give back, take on juniors and pass on the characteristics it takes to be a master developer!
Funny picture :) it would be curious to poll how many developers own dogs and is it related to technologies used. Mine is zwerg-Snauzer by breed... a kinda small terrier but with real beard :)
Yes, it would be interesting to see if any correlation exists although I think you might have to throw cats into the equation.
No problems with cats - I have two! :o
Welcome! Looking forward to reading your posts
I am going to learn with you together all the things that I want.
nice to meet you
Sorry, what is your main skill?
Hi! Welcome to Dev.to! 👋
Looking forward to reading about your journey!
Welcome! What would you consider to be the better platform out of these two - .NET or Java?
Well that's a loaded question. Before I share my opinion I must state that by no means am I an expert or even an advanced developer in the Java or .NET realm. I worked with those technologies quite some time ago, back when Microsoft wasn't so opensource friendly. Now that they play nicer with the opensource community, things have changed a bit.
Why I liked and still like Java today is that it runs in its own virtual environment so it can run just about everywhere. The same cannot be said about .NET. There were also more jobs available for Java skilled workers when I used it. When I programmed in Java back in the day, it was with Oracle's ADF framework which at the time was very new. Developing with a framework is quite different from scratch so I definitely had a different experience with Java than others. I couldn't focus on the low-level Java constructs, instead, I had to make it all work within the framework.
My experience with .NET was quite limited to writing web services and some ASP stuff. I didn't much care for .NET because it was too tightly coupled to Microsoft and I don't like to be pigeon-holed into anything.
Thank you for the detailed answer. It's pretty interesting to see a differing opinion.
I had less exposure to Java's Web frameworks and I will take yet another look and check what's changed since your comment inspired me to give it another try.
That's great. I also plan to get back into Java one day soon. I would like to look into what kind of messaging brokers are available in the Java world. At a quick glance, it looks like many opensource brokers will support a variety of languages.
TypeScript isn't a solution for everything but I'd recommend using it for JS.
Yup, I started with plain JS because it is really easy and fast to get proof of concepts and full projects off the ground. Moving to TypeScript would be beneficial for me and my team in order to keep the project consistent between multiple developers and over time of development.
I like turtles.
I like dragons change my mind 😎
Is it turtles all the way down?
The Turtles are pretty good too :)
Prove it...? 😂
Especially when it comes to graphics and fractals :) I readily second!
Howdy 👋I'm Diogo, a Software Tester from 🇵🇹who likes to use tech to make life easier for everyone. My hobbies include blogging and photography. I discovered this community because this year's Hacktoberfest tshirt included a pack of (awesome) DEV stickers!
Wow :) I just got my hacktoberfest t-shirt yesterday (I'm a bit unhappy with fabric, size and style, but they are quite comfortable for home) - but failed to recognize DEV sticker. You opened my eyes :)
I didn't immediately recognise it as well. I stumbled upon this site, and then looked at the sticker and... eureka! :P
Olá Diogo! Hello from Rio, Brazil!
Could I contact with you, please?
Hey everyone. I'm Chris. I'm a recent graduate and junior developer. I've been following this community for awhile but am just now getting to my first post. Looking forward to continue to grow and learn as well as interact with you guys.
Welcome! Looking forward to reading your posts
Hello Chris, welcome
console.log(‘This is the temple of a Geek, you\’re standing on a holy place :P’);
Talking about myself seems to be a hard task but let me start this way; David Oluwabusayo is my name but folks call me Stont, my greatest strength is my curiosity & open-mindedness which has helped me over the years to acquire various skills ranging from IT and media (a learner in web Devs, a cinematographer and editor)
I believe in 3 people in this life,
The people that force you to start.
The people that always show up when you are about to quit.
The people that always ask for update to know your are still on the track.
This 3 categories of people never get tired and complain about you.
Call me David, I am half Geek, half brilliant, half cool, half Naughty and troublesome. I have only learned a little that I don't know what I know, but if you know how I know what I know you will definitely like me. I love doing what I love and I love what am doing
Damn, I love you already
I love more brother.
I'm Corentin :)
I like to test things in css on codepen, and I'm currently in apprenticeship in a small company that mainly does django-related stuff.
I love the www, because I think having all these sites at our fingertips is a really good thing.
Oh, and I love making lists.
Welcome Corentin! Keep making those lists!
I'll start making lists on dev.to in a few days/week when I have more free time :)
I'm a beginner , wow!
Got a long journey ahead of me.
I love how welcoming and helpful this community is. Looking forward to engaging with you guys!
Welcome to the club, hoping to learn from you.
Hi Friends! I was advised to visit this place by colleague, when we discussed how toxic and dull have become our once-popular local dev-related blog-platform.
Wow, it looks cozy and nicely-designed in technical sense. Hope I'll hang on here for long time :)
I'm not exactly beginner. Or rather there are may things in which I'm novice, though I'm dev with 10+ years experience in some others. Besides I run small web-site with programming problems, CodeAbbey - and while it makes no much sense trying to promote it (it requires some work to make it brighter by nowadays standards) - but luckily I can share some observations and thoughts about various technical and social issues related with running some cute piece of crap which you call your own :)
P.S. just created my first post here about Golang t-shirt for interviews :)
Hey everyone! I am new at coding and trying to study all by myself, that's quite hard, but I keep trying. To be honest I am here because of lack of motivation (( hope to read all of you and find my place in the world of programming! Thanks in advance!
Hi there, good luck with your studies!
What are you learning coding for? Do you have a goal?
And what type of code are you learning?
I've also been struggling with my motivation from time to time, I hope you make it through. It will surely be worth it. :)
Hi! Thanks a lot!
Well, yeah, of course I have a goal. In a year me and wife are planning to become parents and it's going to be hard to live only on my wage (don't know, lots of people talking that money can't be a good motivation, but I can't agree with that (: ).
Currently I'm learning Java and it's quite easy (I'm on the arrays part right now), but Udemy courses definitely not enough, so I get Schildt's complete reference and Head first.
I think that I will make through it, 'cause it's not the first time when I'm trying something completely different in my life. I have studied machines and equipment once I was at the university, but when I graduated I understood that this is not what I wanted to do in my life, so I grabbed some books (have to mention that I had a lot of free time then), installed CAD programs that I would like to learn and here I am - mechanical design engineer! =) Once I figured out that designing sometimes involves basic programming (often it is based on VBA), I cathced oneself that it is quite interesting and I used to think that this is the starting point!
Thanks a lot again for kind words and have a lot of good time in your life! =)
Hi everyone, I am new to the community and I am here to learn. Most of my coding challenge search result has brought me here. I look forward to improving my knowledge and maybe someday become a writer too.
I am new here and I would love to interact with everyone I have over 20 years experience in web development and I look forward to learning more and help if I can. Thank you for letting me be part of this community
