Hi Melissa - just remember it's the ideas behind programming that are more important than the syntax of the language or the parameters of a function. You have to get the idea, find a way to "see" what is happening, you can Google the rest (at least that's what I do... oh shit, now I have impostor syndrome!)

Hey there. I'm a frontend engineer mostly working with react an its ecosystem. In my free-time I read plenty of articles or experiment with typescript/graphql/node on the dark (backend) side ;)

Although I'm here for some time (some years already), I never wrote any posts and was mostly lurking around. But somehow I would love to change that and contribute some content back to this nice community. Any tips/topics on how to get started writing articles? Never had the courage to publish something :/

Hey! I totally connect with lurking around but feeling barriers to contributing content. I've been trying to get over this as well, but it's certainly challenging! I try to remind myself that wherever you are is where you are supposed to be, and in the perfect place to begin. Try to not overthink or get attached to perfection, and just get something out there! The more you do it, the easier it becomes. You can do it! :)

Hello! I've been interested in React for some time and will be diving into it soon. I'll be on the lookout for your articles. I think the only advice I can throw out there for getting started writing articles is just pick one topic/feature/interesting thing you know a good amount about and start writing. Articles don't have to be perfect and you'll get a better idea of what your style is and how you want it to present as you write more.

Hi! I'm Natalie, worked in marketing before COVID and got laid off in March. I've been wanting to pursue my dream in coding for years, but I kept saying 'someday'. Being stuck at home for a few months has allowed me to actually begin my journey as a web developer! I'm so ready to work hard at this, which is why I joined this community!

Hola from Guatemala!

I like to play with technology, I've created projects with things like tensorflow lite with Flutter, Fronted Applications with Vue + Laravel, Python Rest API, Go plugins for k8s, Kubernetes deployments and CI/CD pipelines. I'm not an expert but I've watched a lot of youtube videos!

I have experience in electronics working with boards like Arduino and raspberry and some robotic components. I'm organizer and speaker at Kubernetes Guatemala a CNCF official meetup.

And I'm here because I want to share content and learn from the community!!

Hi everyone! My name is Ruanna, and I work in developer relations at TomTom. I am also taking a basic HTML/CSS course and am certainly a newbie in that regard! With that being said, I like browsing the forums on here and sharing tutorials from our developer blog on all things mapping. Feel free to reach out and connect!

Welcome, Melissa! Wow, you've had some career shift.

Make sure you're consistent in your learnings when it comes to coding, and always believe in yourself. You'll do good!
