    I started by working at startups as a designer. I did basic front-end (html, css, light javascript) for years until I discovered Backbone at a company I was at, which was a revelation to me at the time. From there, I discovered React and decided I didn’t want to do anything else. So I found a startup willing to hire me as a front-end engineer and here I am, a few jobs later, a senior-ish FE dev. It seems to be pretty easy to find work (even as a junior dev) in the SF Bay Area, fwiw.

        Elm still looks completely foreign to me, no matter how many articles I read about it :(

          You just gotta start writing code.

          or: just do whatever you want to.

            This seems more suited for HN.

              It would be amazing to have a monthly meetup that we could get sponsored.

                Location might be an issue, since not all of us are in the Bay Area. Perhaps simultaneous local meetups connected by video call would work.
