I’m Vaidehi Joshi, Senior Software Engineer at DEV/Forem- AMA

Hi! I’m Vaidehi Joshi, Senior Software Engineer at Forem.

I’ll be joining Nick Taylor and Christina Gorton on Wednesday, October 21st on thePracticalDev Twitch stream to talk about what I do as a senior software engineer at Forem, working with the Forem backend, and answering any of your questions!

I would love to answer any questions you have about working as a software engineer, my past projects, open source, and more.

Feel free to ask any questions you have in the discussion thread below!

What was the first time you realized you loved teaching? (Your BaseCS series is excellent!)

Hi Vaidehi,

Currently I am doing your BASECS series! Thank you. How do you approach when stuck on a problem and not going anywhere. I am working on a JS based project but hitting some blocks and not going anywhere, Any suggestions would be great.

I see C# orJava programming languages more readable and maintainable than ruby. So how did you manage to learn ruby ? Are you comfortable with it ? What you don't like about ruby ?

Do you see Rust in the future of your work? 😁 I would love to learn it but not sure what Rust can do.

Another question I had was what is your favourite part of the Ruby language and/or favourite thing about Ruby on Rails? And also lastly, your least favourite parts, if any.
