My name is Andre, a 32 yo camper living in Bali, Indonesia. I am curious, as I see a number of Indonesians on this forum, how many of us are here and want to get together and start a community? Maybe even start our own meetups?
Everywhere I read, people say that getting together with real-life developers in your community and engaging in meetups is essential in your journey as a developer. I realize that this social connection among aspiring developers is something very lacking in Indonesia, or at least in Bali, where I live. So if anyone is from Indonesia, no matter what your proficiency level is in programming, let’s hang out and share! Let’s grow together. Bhinneka Tunggal Ika!
I’m pretty new to programming myself. I started out on Codecademy about a year ago, and only started seriously diving deep into FCC and EDX a few months back. I have spent most of my professional life in the F&B and tourism industry, working long, hard hours. I decided to shift my life path because I want to spend more time with my family, my newborn daughter, and I realize creating things online is the way to go. I have been interested in tech and computers since a young age, fooling around with a 1988 Macintosh with 5’’ floppy disks, no mouse, a green-and-black monitor, and a command line OS. I hope that, with my relentless determination and perseverance, I can make a comfortable living developing things that will make people’s lives better, through programming.
Anyways, that’s my story. I’d love to hear yours
