Hello, I am Ishini Avindya. I am a Graphic Designer, a Game Developer, and a writer. I write blog posts and articles specially about blogging, productivty.


Hi, Ishini! It's great to meet you and I really appreciate your post about blogging since it's something that I struggled a lot. Keep writing those useful articles 👍.


I am so glad to hear that you found them useful Mohammed! If you want to read more about blogging please continue reading my articles. You can read more articles written by me about blogging right through this link. I can help you with blogging problems. Thank you for your appreciation!🤗


Welcome Ishini! What is your favorite part about game development?


Hi Ishini. Which language do you use for gaming development?


Developing 3D games is my favourite part about game developement. And I love creating my own game assets too. How about yours?


Hello Nirav, How are you doing? Are you a blogger? Did you read my articles?

Yes, Ashini and I found some of them actually useful.
Thanks for sharing.

I am glad to hear that! We will be publishing more articles on our Hyvor Talk Blog. You can read more from there.


Hello Inishi! I love games and I will put my efforts to follow your steps and become a Game Developer in a few years. I will be reading your articles. Have a great time writing!


Well, hello internet! 👋 My name's Mohammed Asker and I'm a software developer intern based in Hargeisa, Somaliland. Here are 3 fun facts about me:

  1. I'm an Economics graduate who couldn't find a job, so I pivoted to programming. Still love Economics though. 📈
  2. My passion is anime. I'm usually a quiet person, but when it comes to anime, I can talk for hours much to the annoyances of others. 😆
  3. I don't drink coffee. I don't like it because it messes up my sleeping schedule even if I drunk at 11 am. I'm a tea guy ☕

I discovered DEV after many developers recommend on Twitter and it's really awesome and the community here are very kind. Thank you Ben and the team, for building this amazing platform!


Hey Mohammed. I've only recently been turned into an anime fan. one of my favorites has to be Food Wars. Im curious if you'd have any recommendations? I personally am a coffee man myself. I just can't get used to the taste of tea.


Well, it depends on what type of genres you enjoy the most. If number of episodes is not an issue (you don't mind to watch over 100s of episodes ), then I'll recommend One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, and Hunter x Hunter (2011).

Otherwise, try Death Note, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure (2012), Haikyuu! Attack on Titan, and Gurren Lagann.


Hi, I also love Anime very much. What genre of anime do you like? I like romance, mystery, comedy and so on.


I personally swap b/w tea and coffee. Glad you're here Mohammed!


My hero academia vs attack on titan vs black clover vs hunter x hunter ... which is better? Oh and check the Darwin Game if you haven’t seen it already! :-)


Why pick one? I love them all equally! Of course, I will check Darwin Game when got more free time.


Hey! I'm Emily, a product designer at You Need a Budget (YNAB). Excited to be here and learn from all of you!


Oh my wife and I use YNAB! Love your product. 💖


Hi, Emily. Nice to meet you! You Need a Budget sounds like a fun name for the company. Is it a personal budget platform?


It is! You can learn more here: It's the best personal budget platform out there (in my totally unbiased opinion 😉).


Hi Emily, I’m a big fan of YNAB. Welcome!


That's so great to hear, thanks Josh! Happy to be here :)


Hi Emily,

Welcome to DEV! Actually, I love YNAB and in the browser tab to the left YNAB is opened! 😄 Nice to meet you!


Hi guys !

my name is Leonardo diaz, and i am a Junior to semi-senior Developer, love to code, and love to create


The fact that we create things is what makes me feel great about it, this is awasome!


Hello Leornardo, welcome to this good place :)


Yeah ! i already found out pretty neat things around, why did i took so long to find this place lol!


Hey Leonardo, what is your main code editor?


Visual Studio Code team 4theWin!

But of course if needed, Eclipse and anything that needs to get the work done, but most of the time i work around with VSC

how about you !

Nice! I usually like to keep it simple with Atom and a handful of plugins. VS Code always seemed like too much for the simple things I'm usually doing.


I am safa. I started to learn web dev for about 6 months now, I just finished learning ccss html and JavaScript (front end basis), I had fun building some silly games. I am now starting to learn node. I am looking forward building my own product once I get a good understanding of back end dev.
Thanks to all of you guys for the inspiration!!


Hey there Safa. I'm excited myself to start building silly games to get a better understanding of javascript. What kind of things have you built? I wish you the best in your development.


Hello, I'm Chidi.
I currently work as a Frontend developer, but I consider myself a Full stack developer. Haha.

Nice to be here.
I just want a space to share some of the awesome things I learn while doing my job.


Hello!!! Once upon a time, I was a full-stack developer, then one day I realized I worked my way all the way to the backend. 😸


One way or another you'll wind up at one end.
But I still got personal projects to do so I'll always be FS.


Hi my name is Danny. I am a Cloud Consultant who automates infrastructures hosted in AWS. I joined this community to expand my ideas on tech related topics. I also share my thoughts and ideas using my blog:


Hi Danny, I liked your blog post on preparing for the AWS Advanced Networking certification.
I saw that you've already passed the two professional certifications - any tips on preparing for the Solutions Architect Professional certification? I wish there was an official book for it as I found the books for the Associate SA and SysAdmin books very useful.


Hi Andrew! You could try to do the official test exam and see from the results which domains need more attention. Then I would suggest to find the related AWS services which belong to the domain and study those before you go for the real exam. Jumping in the console and trying out these services give a whole lot more understanding of what you're actually doing. So practical experience is a must.


Hi everyone! My name is Rolando. I currently work as an educator but hope to transition into software engineering in the coming year. I am passionate about education, photography, and reading. I hope to learn from all of you and hopefully, as my understanding and comfort grow, I can share my process/thoughts with y'all!


Hi! Congratulations! I bet you already know more code than me. ;)


Hi Developer Friends! I am Vinayak, a veteran C++ developer. I used to code so much that the nerves on my hands got worn out and there was a time when I used to be known as the 'Carpal Tunnel Coder' LOL.

Hello, I'm Jeseekia! I work as a Software Engineer mostly focusing now on IoT device connectivity. I love to teach and have grown my career and expertise by educating throughout my non-traditional journey. Now that teaching is no longer a part of my job (I used to teach for a coding bootcamp), I feel a gap in my knowledge and in my connection to the community. I'm hoping to get back to sharing more AND doing more digital sharing rather than strictly in-person. I also livestream on Twitch, not just games, but coding as well!

I'm here to share and learn and to meet others!

Feel free to find me on Twitch!


I have highly considered teaching development on a live stream and had never seen it done before, so I will absolutely follow your casts!

Hello everyone, it is a pleasure for me to be part of this community. I am Syrine Ammari from Tunisia, currently a student in the field of Information and Communication Technologies but I didn't like it because of the lack of motivation and practice in fact I didn't know what I really want. one day I woke up, I was thinking about what is the purpose of my life if I didn't have a passion. So I decided to look for something to motivates me and gives to my life meaning, I found that web development is a great job so I participate in a course to teach me from scratch but in the first few hours I was bored because there so many theory, I was wondering how can I put this theory in action and make real project, this is what brought me here, I apologies about this long introduction and I hope to improve my skills and gain expertise from you

Hi, I'm Will, a dev who had to retire from a government job because of disability.
Since retirement I have hardly written any code at all. But, I am still very interested in it. I mostly tinker with Arduino and Raspberry Pi now.
In the course of my career I saw many hyped-up fully-buzzword-compliant ideas come and go. For example: agile development. Don't tie your career to a fad.
I'd answer the question: "which language should I learn?" with "The one you (most likely) will have to use next. Can anyone believe that once included C#?
I'd like to observe that most devs will have to work with legacy code. So you might not necessarily work on the newest and best, but could be dealing with the obscure and un-supported. That's the time to prove your flexibility.

Hope to get a lot of people on this platform <3
