My name's Macaulay
A frontend designer...
And working towards becoming a full stack developer....
I'm already working with Java as my Backend language... And it's cool and fun..... OH! forgot to mention.... I can build Desktop apps with Java also....


Hey Macaulay, welcome to DEV!
Which GUI library are you using for your Java Desktop apps?
I've used Swing, but I think things are moving towards JavaFX.

Yeah you're right.... I make use of JavaFX.... It's flexibility will make everything easier for you....πŸ’―πŸ’―

Hello everyone,
My name is Anas, I'm learning by working on an app project using React-native, it will be finished soon (I hope :), I've got my new IT dev degree this year.



My firstname is Guillaume, I'm student

in Open Class Rooms (Java developer ) in France.


Hello and welcome to Dev.to Community ! πŸ‘‹πŸΌπŸ˜‰


Hi Guilluame, nice to meet you. Welcome to the community!


hello Guillaume. I like open classroom tutorials. They are free and high quality.


Hello! I started the self-taught journey to become a web developer a few months ago. I made an dev.to account initially to document my progress and share insights that might be of use to others in the community. When I'm not learning, I'm playing with my dogs, reading something sci-fi/fantasy, or writing short stories.


Hi Zach, nice to meet you. Good luck on your journey.


Hello there Zach and welcome to Dev.to Community! πŸ‘‹


Welcome Zach - good luck on your self-taught dev journey! Are you applying for jobs yet or still learning? I'm also self-taught and have been coding for work since November. Happy to help if I can!



I've been on dev.to for a while but just recently started to get more active on the site. I'm currently using dev.to and hashnode while I decide where my primary platform will be. I just found out about dev.to's stackbit integration so I'm really torn between the two but already started posting to hashnode, so I'll see what happens.

I'm currently learning JavaScript. I previously learned a bit of Python but never used it for a real-world application. I switched to JavaScript because I felt it fit more with what I eventually want to get involved with, and that's cross-platform apps. I haven't decided on a field yet but I recently started reading up on civic tech and that really got my interest. I just bought a physical copy of Eloquent JavaScript to have something I can read without being tied down to the PC, and to see if learning with a physical copy will provide any additional benefits.

Casually, I enjoy gaming and primarily play FPS games on PC. I'm active on Instagram and Twitter, and used to actively stream on Twitch.

If anyone has played with hashnode and dev.to, I'd love your feedback. Otherwise, feel free to connect with me for any other reason. Thanks! :)


Hi all πŸ‘‹

My name is Bobby and I'm from Bulgaria.

I work as a Linux DevOps engineer. I am an avid Linux lover and supporter of the open-source movement philosophy. I also help with the DigitalOcean community forum and I work on various web-based projects including the Quiz API (you should check it is free for developers!).

I try to write tutorials for my own blog, dev.to and for the devdojo.com website!


Hi, Bobby! Welcome to Dev.to Community! πŸ‘‹
The QuizAPI seems cool! πŸ‘


Hi all,
I'm Johnny, a full stack developer. I've been reading quite a lot of the articles from this site, so I thought it just makes sense to join the community.

I have been freelancing in the last couple of years, which enables me to live an amazing lifestyle from my chosen home, Barcelona β˜€οΈ.
I'm the biggest loser when it comes to games, but it's for fun anyways πŸ•Ή.
Besides tech, I'm always up for chatting about guitars, extreme sports, or pop culture.

My goal is to start writing some articles, meet new people from around the world, and contribute a bit to this awesome community.


Hello everyone,

My name is Lev and I am happy to join this community. I'm currently leading the solutions engineering team at LaunchDarkly. I love people, python, and continuous delivery. Right now, I am working on a handful of random open source projects in my free time. In addition, I re(started) #100DaysOfCode this week.



My name is Alex and I’m from Bulgaria! I’ve been working as a SysAdmin for the past 5 years and I’m looking forward to many more. I love Linux and everything related to Web Development and in my spare time I try to improve my skills and knowledge.

Whenever I have time I work on side projects that include web development. The latest one is Quiz Api which you can check out! It offers free subscription for developers! There are a lot of interesting quizzes including Top 10 Linux, Kubernetes, Docker, Bash interview questions and a lot more!


Hello there Alex and welcome to Dev.to Community! πŸ‘‹


Hello! πŸ‘‹

I'm Jeff Jadulco, I'm a game developer for 5 years and now I'm dipping my toes into web development. I like open source and I plan to write and share my journey while learning web development. 😬


Is developing games delivers as much fun as playing them? :)


Yes it is! And it works both ways. When I play other games, I became more appreciative of every little details in the game πŸ˜„


Hello Dev.to community,

Read a few great articles here and just wanted to start contributing myself. I'm an experienced PHP developer and a bunch of other cool dev/ops tech.

What would be a good article to write up in the PHP realm?


Hi all,

I'm Kalin, by day I'm a Linux System Administrator, by when I have time I'm a Web Developer, mostly using PHP and Laravel . This has been both my job and my hobby for the past 5 years and I dare say my hunger for knowledge hasn't dried up yet.

My recent achievement or at least how I feel it is, is starting a small websites with two of my friends. It's about quizzes on various tech topics like JS and Kubernetes - Quiz API . It ain't much but we put our heart and soul in it. I'm sharing it as I feel this is how everyone's hobby should make them feel, awesome!

Anyway, happy to be here, in such a positive community!

I'm David.
I'm an engineering manager working from an awesome company with an outstanding team. However, I have a strong background in development, and I hope to use dev.to to help me stay up to date in what is trending and some of the new best practices. Also, I'll try to help you guys if I can.



Hi there! I’m Ryo Nakao. I’m a software engineer, quite interested in reducing the cycle time between an idea and usable software.

Nowadays, I've been enthusiastic about the development of a continuous delivery system, and static analysis tools in Golang. I just recently made golintui, a TUI tool for Golang linters, so I hope you can try it out.

I'm glad to be a part of such a positive community anyway.


If we've not met before, I'm Reang. I'm a third-year undergrad studying Electrical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur. I grew up chasing chickens. I guess that does it for an intro. If you wanna know more about me you can head to reangdeba.xyz. good day!


Hi all!
I'm Thomas, I'm working on a mobile game, building in Flutter! πŸ‘‹

In the daytime I develop business software in .NET and I also have experience with Java, Kotlin, Elm, Go, Python, Powershell, Bash, git, blah, blagh, snore, zzzzZZZ... πŸ˜ͺ

See you around!


Wow, and how is it developing using Dart/Flutter?


I must say I'm enjoying it immensely! Dart is a modern language, reminds me a lot of modern Java or Kotlin, and with everything laid out so great by the Flutter team, getting help is really easy!
With Flutter hot reload and visual test runs, building super-fast UI is a walk in the park, and with experience from other modern languages, you'll feel right at home coding reactive, asynchronous code.. πŸ˜„


My name is Klayton and I'm a lurker from a while now.
I see that this is a amazing community with nice people and everyone seems happy to help each other.
Helping others is a core value of mine, so I felt happy and created my profile.

I'm a experienced developer, with most of my career focused on C#, SQL HTML, CSS and JS.

Thanks and see you later!


Hello everyone, I'm Alan, I'm French and I'm 19

I'm a student in CrΓ©ajeux, in Programmation.

let me tell you a bit about me, I learn programming on my own on my free time 4 years ago, I quickly was interested in game development. I learn C++, Lua, and C# and made small projects in my free time during high school and I learn Python in class and made a game with friends as a school project.
When I've got my degree I know that I wanna make video games so I joined my actual game dev school.
You can check the small games that I made on my itch.io page

I'm glad to join you and share with you 😁


Hi! I'm from Norway and I'm learning web development in my free time as I have a full time job in another field. I also have three kids age 2, 4 and 8, so my free time is limited(understatement of the year) , but my motivation is high as I love to learn something new all the time!
It's great to discover new rescources like DEV!
I'm currently learning JavaScript and hope to pick up some great tips on that and web development in general:)

Hello! I'm John. I joined dev.to because I really like the positive environment it creates. I like to blog when I have an idea and this seems like a really good place to do that. Right now I'm learning a lot about x11 using java. This is a strange combination but it is fun. I also enjoy contributing to nixos and learning the nix language.
