    Hello friends!

    I am here for general networking with like-minded professionals. In the interest of making some friends, I will start with question: a/s/l? Specialty or skill area?

    I am a 29/f/Maine, US who specializes in Usability, Human-Computer Interfaces, and Technical Communications. My native language is JavaScript, but I like to work in many different languages. 🙂

    I currently work at a startup. It is a small and diverse team, and I enjoy the wide variety of tasks I get to work on.

    I am very interested in learning about others experiences working in teams with technology. Let’s say, it’s a personal research project.

    I am also very interested in making friends! It’s nice to meet you. 🙂

    30/M/Texas with a networking background that guided me into information security. My areas of interest within the field revolve around Offensive Security and Red Teaming.

    I currently work in the infosec field doing asset and vulnerability management. Not quite RedTeaming but close enough that I can follow the infamous ‘kill chain’.

    Thanks for the introduction.

    I’m in my 30s/M/NYC. The road of my career started in support, to support engineer, to QA analyst, and most recently QA automation. It would be good to continue down the automation path, but I’m open to other opportunities.

    I’m 24, live in MA, and currently work a day job doing tech support for an online music school, night job working as a live theater sound guy. I have a degree in film music composition/production, which has proven so far to be less than ideal for paying bills, so I’m looking to pivot toward my other interest, software development. I’ve realized that I’d rather be not-stressed doing software development (preferably working as a remote employee) than stressed trying to make my living with music.

    I’ve been watching Lynda.com videos on web and software development, and trying to get more involved with the development team at the school at which I work. I also have been taking one of the “pro intensive” courses on codecademy.com. I joined FN because I’ve been a fan of Eli’s videos for a while, and I’m hoping to get pointers from the community on resources I can use to move forward.

    Systems Admin, full-stack developer… etc. Publishing background.

    Emphasis on the etc. I started as one of only two “computer guys” and only a dozen other people in the company. 10 years later, offices in 3 states, ~60 employees including 4 developers. That growth is a lot of what has led me here. I’ve found many of the topics to be relevant to my search for stable footing, going from a guy working on one project and helping out a few people install MS Office or configuring a router you could get at Walmart to dealing with several devs and their projects, remote workers, etc.

    The subject of working more as a team has come up numerous times here, but everyone ends up back in their silos more or less. I think that has a lot to do with their being more projects than devs. The impression I’ve gotten from others is that this isn’t typical out in the wild. The ratio seems to be upside down here. I’m afraid that it would take bringing all dev work to a halt for a bit so that a solid foundation could be established for a fresh start.

    27/M/Stockholm, Frontend Developer (CSS, Javascript, Angular, a smidge of C#) working as a freshly employed consultant, but no external project yet, so working inhouse 🙂
    The project involves settings up servers and database communication, so I suppose I’m going in the Full Stack direction although not by choice. In perfect world, I’d be working with just frontend CSS,JS,Angular and product/service design!

    Background in general software engineering and graphic design, and am in process of creating my own sort of presence on the internet, platform or portfolio if you will, not for money purposes though.

    In free time I mostly prefer games and out with my gf, which involves travelling, outside walks in nature, and playing co-op games 😀
