Hi Everyone :)
I currently work as a film producer, and I started to study code during the quarantine and found myself completely fascinated with this world.
I still have a long way to go before I can call myself a developer, but I'm very determined and I expect to learn a lot from the community here on dev.to.
I'm doing all of my studying online (mainly on Codecademy PRO, and Udemy), and I plan to spend some months completely immersed in code to pursue a career in web development in the future.

Welcome :) I can totally feel you, I worked for 9 years in video and cinema, doing it all: grip, shooting, editing and eventually cinema mastering. After a transition time as a sysadmin now I'm happily hacking things together with Ruby (or perhaps breaking things apart) since two months.

Good luck!

Wow, Nicolò! How did that happen?
I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one making this change!

Thank you :))

I longed to get into development for a long time, so after quitting I used what I knew about Linux system administration and started from there. I tried to soak up everything I could learn from work and online like a sponge. What helped me the most was building a little web app based on a pain point found during my sysadmin role: ugly code, but it worked. At least I learnt what I shouldn't have done 😅 After that I aimed to a Junior developer position, and finally got it. It's never too late to be a junior, it matters your willingness to learn and adapt

Well check that out! We may or may not be able to help each other (you may be helping me more than I can help you. lol) I am not just a coder, but a graphic designer and video editor as well. Currently jack of all trades master of none. I'm becoming efficient at Javascript and all aspects of editing.

Hi there David!
Well, I'm in Brazil, but let me know if I can be of any help from abroad :)
Now, in regards to coding, you'll help me more than I help you. I still don't know anything about JS.

Hey, Julia. Welcome to DEV!

I can relate to that, I dropped out of an Arts degree to pursue a career in web development and it worked quite well.

Let me know on Twitter if you need any help or tips 👋

Welcome Julia! i also recently started learning to code and cant wait to be immersed in this. If you want some free good tools to learn code I recommend: Freecodecamp.org and Sololearn. I use both. They are good for starting with web dev and javascript. :)) lets coooode!

Hi all! I’m new to DEV as well as web development. I’m looking forward to growing my experience and knowledge as I pursue a new career.

I’ve got a lot of work in front of me but I’m loving every minute I spend working on development. Currently I’m working on simpler front end projects with a focus on HTML/CSS.

Hi Patrick, thanks for the offer! I just posted a solution to a problem I worked through on frontend-mentor. They offer some experience working through design documents and trying to layout a site/page and give the opportunity to post for feedback. I'm really working towards writing clean code and I'm sure I'll improve as I get experience. I'm open to suggestions on improvement, ideas on how to promote myself and anything else that can help me succeed. frontendmentor.io/solutions/single...

Hi!

I started taking C classes when I was 14, and have been coding my own fun/useful projects ever since. I worked in the digital marketing industry for some years, but I am now focused on my true passion, coding, learning full time.

In order to refresh knowledge I have enrolled in Harvard's CS50. At the same time, I am learning new stuff on The Odin Project and FreeCodeCamp. It's a lot of stuff, but I'm confident in myself.

My current goal is finding a job as soon as possible in a company where I can find myself comfortable while still learning and expanding my skills.

Hello, I am Senior Android Dev from India.
Hi-5 to all the techies out there. It's been more than 5 years since I am part of the developer's team.

It feels like home to be here with people having the same thought process. Where I can shoot out my thoughts without giving a second thought that if people would understand me or not. :D

I am enthusiastic to learn, grow, inspire, and stay motivated with the tech community.

Currently, I am brushing up my DS and Algo skills, along with the latest Kotlin 1.4.0.

Would love to hear from all of you.
Stay Healthy.
Keep Coding.

Hie everyone.
I am currently working in sales and marketing in the telecommunications sector. I started to study to code as a hobby three years ago. Though I have some knowledge of Javascript, HTML, and CSS I cannot really say am a developer.

I have recently embarked on a more serious approach to studying and I mainly use udemy for my online study. Am gearing myself towards full stack javascript and python. I also have an interest in data visualisation using Power BI, Tableu and D3.

Hello guys, I'm currently a leather artisan who focuses on making leather bags and wallets. I started learning about how websites and apps work after coming across an udemy ad on Facebook and people were arguing about how programming is hard and some even said its impossible to learn, others say it's a continuous process, but then I got so confused about what these guys are even arguing about and decided to follow up the link on the ad which landed me on the udemy website and it was a course on web development, after watching a preview, I decided to enroll and it's been fun since then, I mean I'm still a beginner, but I just love the problem solving aspect of it which makes me come back to it even when I get frustrated...anyways I'm aspiring to become a well experienced web developer in the quickest time possible and I know I could get a lot of help and inspirations from you guys here on dev.to THANK YOU GUYS🙂🙂

Hi all!
I am a space researcher and a founder of a scientific publishing startup. We are an early stage and I do most of the coding. Dev.to helped me quite a few times during the development but there are also lots of unique technical problems that I had to solve myself. I would like to give back to the community by sharing how I solved them. I used to post on Medium but I find Dev.to to be a more appropriate place for technical stuff. Cheers!

Hello,

I used to be a teacher of English as second language before switching careers for development. It happened some time ago and now I work as a software architect at a quite big company.

I came here to share my experience and thoughts. I'll mostly write about software/solutions architecture, javascript and typescript, and probably something else.

I hope someone will find my writings helpful. 🙂

Hello everybody,
Ivan from Italy here. I'm a freelancer software developer and system integrator and my main business is industrial applications and medical devices.
In the last period I often use Qt/QtQuick as my main framework, but I also use other frameworks and languages (Python, js, C).

I love Free Software and Open Source projects and I'm a GNU/Linux user for about 15years. I'm a maker too, and I like IoT solutions and MCU

I found dev.to following a webinar from KDAB, where Vasily Pereverzev talk about Musescore. Then I found articles by Vasily in this site and I liked it.
