HAP

Greetings, programs!

My name is HAP and I'm new to the community. I've decided to join to learn and share programming ideas, tips and tricks.

A bit about me:
I've had ~18 years in C, ~10 in python, and 25+ in RDBMS and 20 with Linux. So I'm old :)
I'm also into movies, manga and anime.
Tron (1982) changed my life.

Glad to meet you all.

Hey guys! I dropped out of college where I was studying computer engineering a few years ago, it was too much for me. But now I've finally decided to put all my focus into becoming a self taught developer. I've started with The Odin Project learning javascript and last week I got accepted into a government sponsored program where I will be learning java for the next 6 months and have a internship lined up already.

This seems like a community of like minded individuals who like working with technology thats why I joined!

Hi everyone! I'm Brendon. I got into software through my background in scientific research, and now I work at a biotech company developing software for CRISPR gene editing. Our co-founder Jennifer Doudna won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for CRISPR this year, so it's a very exciting time for us.

I'm building Python APIs with FastAPI and front-ends with Vue.js, and I do some DevOps with Docker, Terraform, and AWS.

I'm also a big Star Wars fan, so the Obi-Wan Kenobi GIF above is making me feel very welcome. 🚀 👌

Hello everybody,
I am not affraid to say, I am coder. In fact, am proud of it.

Through out my dev life I heard lots of opinions on my profession in range from "This can do trained monkey, do you know anything else" up to "It is not programming it is magic."

Second part was kind of defining for me.
I base my work on research and I am trying to be the best in profession I do.

One day my college yelled: "This is not programming, this is f*cking magic."
He was speaking about some styles on page.
I just answered: "Well, I always wanted to be wizard."

I wrote it in to my CV and it sticked.

So....

Hello. I am wizard and am passionate CSS coder.

Nice to meet you all.

Hi everyone! I'm Eduardo, I've been maintaining my own small e-commerce site for about 7 years. In the spirit of total automation and willing to get as much free time as I could I learned a lot about GNU/Linux, Python and Javascript.

Web scrapping, automated web posting and image generation, bots, etc.

I hope I can learn a lot from all of you.

Nice to meet you!
