Um, Hello. So I was doom scrolling through a news feed and came across a question: "What is your favorite Linux distro and why"? Since I am a Linux user, and bored, I decided to respond. In the process I seem to have created a Dev user account. Um, So, here I am. I think I'll stick around and see if i can learn something.

Welcome! I love the term "doom scrolling" by the way. The first time I heard it, I felt that it quite accurately described not only what I was doing, but also how I felt.

Hello Gordon.

I believe that as a linux user, you never stop learning. And the best way to lear is to teach.

Hi Gordon!

So what is your favorite distro any why?

Xubuntu. Because it's what I use and it passed the Wife and Kids test. Probably not what you were expecting to hear.

Actually, if I had to pick a favorite it would be Ubuntu in some form or another, for the same usability factor. I rock Manjaro on my workstations but mainly for hardware compatibility.

Thanks for sharing!

What is good everyone.

I have been mostly lurking for the past few months. Due to COVID I have been at home with not a whole lot to do, so I have decided to start tackling the Daily Challenges posted here by Dev.TO and upload them to a Git repo. This is to motivate me to keep coding and tackling fun problems at the same time.

Daily Challenges Link
It isn't always daily per se, but a few a week at least. Almost 300 already so a nice backlog of challenges to keep you busy.

Glad to hear you're digging the challenges! πŸ˜€

Also, one trick about the Daily Challenges β€” you can type in dev.to/challenge and it'll take you to the latest one. Same goes for dev.to/welcome actually.

Hello, Poulami! Welcome!

I definitely think that this is a great platform to document what you learn. That is something I missed in my introduction post. Getting more involved with the community definitely makes things feel real and less isolated.

Well hey! Nearly at the end of my 100 days of code journey and now thinking about the next 100. JavaScript is my new love again and I'm excited to dive into node.js and poke around. I'm thinking of writing a post here just about what I've learnt and how I'm making use of things so any tips/ideas or if I shouldn't add to the noise do lemme know! Happy to be here 😊 Andy

Hello! I'm Yuan, Python developer, and two time CTO. I joined here to share knowledge and read about programming topics.

Fun fact about myself: my crowning achievement over my entire career remains that one time I converted a minifridge into a sous-vide cooker, and cooked steak in it. No other achievement has come close ever since.

Hi,

My name is Adi, I'm a minimalist freelance developer. I'm currently interested in C and UNIX and how their ideas can be applied to the "modern" web. I recently built and launched mkws.sh, a bloat-less simple static site generator because I felt tired of the JavaScript ecosystem.

Hello! I'm a first year computer science undergrad, looking around for a place to learn more about web development. I'm taking my first baby steps outside of the comfort of CSS, JS and HTML right now, but hopefully I'll be learning a lot more in the next few months.😬
