Hello, DEVs people. I am a newbie here. I am working as a full-stack web developer and I like to try and study something new. Development is my hobby. I wrote a lot of programs for trading using different languages such as C#, LUA, MQL4, AFL, C++, and more. Now I am working with Ruby on Rails + AngularJS, ReactJS (GatsbyJS). And I am glad to be a member of this awesome community. Thank you!

Oh, interesting! I haven't even heard of MQL4 and AFL. What were the reasons to use the exotic languages?

MQL4/MQL5 - the languages for the trading application Metatrader4/5. They have their own language for this. As well as Amibroker. They have Amibroker formula language. :)
Developing software in the trading sector is very fun.

Heya! Welcome to DEV. 🙂

Quick tip — if ya wanna learn more about web development or blockchain, consider following these tags: dev.to/t/webdev & dev.to/t/blockchain. Whatever tags you folllow will be more likely to show up in your feed. You can do the same for users too! You can even make adjustments to follow "weight" from dev.to/dashboard/following_tags in case you want to follow some tags more than others.

Glad you joined up here and hope ya dig the site! Don't hesitate to ask any questions if you have 'em and I'll do my best to help. 😀

Hello! I followed the @thepracticaldev on twitter for months before I got tired of saving every tweet and decided to create an account here! I'm a junior Front End Developer trained in React, Redux, Javascript, HTML, CSS, and SQL. I've also worked with Java and C#. I was last employed at T-Mobile until laid off from them merging. Now back to job hunting, networking, and strengthening my foundation with data structures and algorithms. Happy to be a part of this community!

Hello Natasha and welcome! I currently work at TMO right now. Mind if I ask what happened? Our department hasn't merged yet and we haven't heard much about layoffs.

Hi Chris! So this spring, Tmo completed its merge with Sprint to create "the new T-Mobile". I didn't feel any repercussions until the end of Q2, where my first team was dissolved in the reorganization as Sprint employees were added to the parent department.

I was then repurposed to work on a second team, with a different set of responsibilities, for another month before receiving notice that I would be laid off to reduce headcount, which doubled with the new additions. That being said, Tmo's a great place to work, so perhaps there may be an opportunity to rejoin in the future!

Hi Natasha,
Thanks for the response. I work in Operations and we have not yet integrated the network. So sorry to hear that happened to you. Hopefully you are able to find something quickly or are able to rejoin. I assume you were with Sprint before the merger. I wasn't aware TMO had Full-time Web Developers.

Howdy. I'm an old dog who continues to learn new tricks. I've worked on most platforms in many languages, but my hobby attention of late is drawn to tools and code to build static sites, SPAs, containers, and keeping the server side of things as cheap as possible. (My allowance isn't very large.) I'm just kicking the dev.to tires. So far, I like what I see.

Hello guys! I'm new here but i'm very excited. I'm from Argentina, i have 21 years old and few months ago i started to learn how to code. I started whit CS50 course from Harvard and keep learning whit a few books, freecodecamp, stackoverflow, documentation, yt tutorials, etc. Actually i learned HTML, CSS, JS (and a little of PYTHON and C) and now i'm starting whit Node JS and React in the next weeks. I went to the university and study for 3 years Economics, but i realize "I don't like this, i want to learn how to code and make really things, not just economic models", so that's my story. I'm very glad to be here and i hope to meet a lot of you and your's stories! Sorry for my english guys, i'm still practicing haha. Good luck and Thanks you!

Howdy Dev! I have found that a great learning method for me is to make "cheat sheets" for certain topics. I've decided to turn these cheat sheets into blog posts as a way to further reinforce what I'm learning. I'm looking forward to sharing these, and reading posts from all of the amazing Dev community members!

Heya! New to DEV - obviously. I am a (young) full-stack web developer from Italy.
I looked at resources here for a lot of time before joining, encouraged by Hacktoberfest. DEV often helped me to be productive and learn more.
Now it's my turn to help others to create better software.
I will probably write a lot about mistakes I made as a beginner and how to avoid them (but not the common ones eheh) and mostly cool new/unknown technologies I try and their pro and cons for each situation.
I hope to bring something new and fresh to DEV.
I appreciate this community's friendly approach; thanks to y'all, DEVs!

Hello DEVs. I just sign up here.

I came to learn more about some technologies, and to try to write something myself.

I'm working with Python+Django and React, while learning about NextJS and ReactNative.

I'm looking for some roadmaps about development to guide me what to learn, in what order, and what is missing in my knowledge today.

Thank you for any help.
