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, Nicolรฒ! 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 ๐Ÿ˜… 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

 
 

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 ๐Ÿ‘‹

 

Hey Vitor!

I'm happy to hear you made that change and that it worked out for you, I'll definitely reach out for some tips :)

Thank you very much!

 

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.

 

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!

 

Oieee!!
Vou dar uma olhada, com certeza <3

 
 

Film producer to a Developer, that'll be an amazing journey.
Do you plan to write about your journey here on Dev?

 

Yes, I plan to! Its probably gonna be a tale of blood, sweat, and tears though.

Wow, I'm looking forward to it then.

 

Hey.. we are on the same page !

 

Hi Julia, welcome !!

 
 

Welcome and good luck with your online classes!

 

Thank you Matthieu :)

 

I Am A Full Stack Developer if you need any help just message me

 

That's my goal. Trying to get proficient at JS now. I've been doing the exercises on Freecodecamp and Codeacademy. I'm on Promises now. ugghh..lol

ok if you need any help just send me on Instagram @mouradsherif76

Alright. Thanks.

 

Thank you, Mourad! I'll definitely write to you with my doubts.

ok here is my Instagram account @mouradsherif76

 

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

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

 

Hi Ryan! Welcome to DEV! I'm new too, but am an experienced web dev (10+ years), so feel free to reach out to me if you need anything/get stuck on anything!

 

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...

 

Hey, Ryan. Welcome!

You have a long road ahead of you and I'm sure it is going to be a joyful journey.

A solid understanding of HTML and CSS goes a long way so you're on the right track!

 

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.

 

Hi Kaplyak,

I too am looking for that first opportunity. I really like how you worded that part of your post. Iโ€™ve struggled to put that into words myself. Good luck!

 

Thank you Ryan! Best of luck for you too!

 

I am happy for you. My ultimate goal would be an entry level job that continually challenges me And provides the opportunity to develop and enrich my skills.

 

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.

 

These days everyone on Earth can call themselves a developer, so can you. ๐Ÿ˜Š

 

Thanks Sergei for the encouragement. Maybe the best term would be apprentice developer!!!!

I suggest you take a look at this website: amiarealdeveloper.com

It's the authority in the question of someone being a real developer. ๐Ÿ˜

 

You've come to the right place to learn more about these technologies. Welcome!

 

Thanks Arik willing to learn and absorb as much as I can

 

Thanks Arik hope to learn and absorb as much as I can!!

 

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.

 

Hello!

I'm a recent graduate in an unrelated area, but want to switch fields to coding. I've learnt a little bit of Python through online resources and courses, and will be taking up the #100DaysOfCode challenge soon.

 

I am going for my 2nd round of 100DaysOfCode. Have already completed one , let's connect on insta @iuxair

 

Hello! Does the time I spend researching for code count in the daily hour of coding?

Reading, watching tutorials, etc count as time for challenge. But it's preference as well,

 

Apologies, but I haven't set up my Instagram account yet. Would you be willing to connect via Twitter instead? @importhuman

I don't have a twitter account yet, START the challenge and will be here if you need me :)

That's alright, and thanks a lot!

 

Namaste everyone.
I am shivam here, A final year undergrad passionate about Data and Technology.
I have good experience in python and ML and am looking forward to learn react and integrate my models with react and learn some deployment.

When not on laptop I roam around places and eat and play video games.

 

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 GUYS๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚

 

Love this story! Welcome to the DEV community, Hamza ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Thank you Gracie Gregory

 

Hi Everyone! I'm drilling engineer with 6 years of experience, who has been studying for the last 2 years coding. Preparing myself for the change of the career.

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 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.

 

Hi! Recently joined Dev.to, and couple days ago made my first contribution. I'm fullstack dev (Java, TypeScript, JavaScript, React) at a large IT company in Eastern Europe. In love with TypeScript, working on some personal projects available on GitHub; from time to time contribute to other open source. Cheers!

 

Hi Friends!

Excited to be here :) I have used Medium for the past few years, but as the founders of Dev know all too well, they are not friendly with their paywalls. Excited to get to know some of you!

I work as a Software Developer at SAP through their SVNT rotational program. It's been a quick few months since I've started and certainly feel like I am learning a lot. In my downtime, I've recently been exploring serverless frameworks such as Vercel.

Have a good one โœŒ๏ธ

 

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi guys

Working as Tech Specialist pursuing a degree on Informatics Computer in Costa Rica and also trying to get a Associate position where I work.

Around 10 years ago I knew were I wanted to go to learn and at 28 I started my journey. I've learned in my life with my inconclusive degree in Advertising Design that: following trends will kill your life, stick with some technologies, develop a carrier with them and enjoy the ride. The worst thing you can do is trying to learn everything and knowing a few things, but better to learn a few things with more understanding.

Cheers!!!
