Learn About How Developers are Using Alibaba Cloud in New and Creative Ways
Developer’s Continuously Learn
Alberto | Spain
Unlike most people, coding came more natural for me. I started coding when I was six-years-old. I guess you could say I spent half my time learning cursive and half my time coding, so it’s a second language. It’s one of the reasons I love being a developer so much, technology is always changing, and every day I can fulfill my dream never to stop learning, growing and improving. I regularly have to learn new languages and platforms to reduce maintenance costs, but this is changing, thanks to Alibaba Cloud, I can walk through problems with the technical support staff and customer service representatives.
A Developer Links Passions
Evelyn | USA
Three years ago, I turned my love of group fitness into becoming a certified instructor, teaching since then. Two years ago, I designed and built a fitness tracker that would record workout metrics in real-time and link to social media. And last year, I joined Alibaba to realize my dream of using technology to benefit a wider audience – from professional athletes to the general public. Being a developer allows me to connect my two passions – technology and fitness – and affords me the opportunity to share both passions with the world. Alibaba Cloud provides me with the platform and the technological know-how to connect my two loves while supporting the growing community of tech and fitness enthusiasts.
Saurabh | India
From a young age, I was always amazed at what a computer can do and the power such a seemingly simple device has to change people’s lives. In high school, I witnessed the paradigm shift to the digital age and decided it was something for which I wanted to take part. That’s when I decided to become a software developer. After studying for such a long time, it is now my mission to use those skills for the betterment of society. I still believe there is a huge back between technology and every day consumers. It is my goal and dream to make technology-driven products relevant for the end user. Alibaba Cloud allows for everything I create to be translated into a better user experience.
Developers Make Dreams
Arslan | Pakistan
Since I started coding in 2014, it has become a passion of mine. While I am a software engineer by training, I believe a developer has the power to turn imaginations and dreams into reality. A developer doesn’t find anything impossible and will work to find a solution or work around so what was once a figment of the imagination is a fully functional tool bettering people’s lives. For me, Alibaba Cloud gives me the platform to work on small solutions that have powerful implications for society.
to New Beginnings
Kingson | India
During 6th grade I first started working and supporting my family, throughout my education, I worked nights and studied by day. Today, due to hard work, I am now a Solutions Architect. In my experience, both developing and technology have given me hope. The hope being able to change me and my families fortune. There is consistently something to learn. There will also always be challenges, but as with code, each problem is a new beginning of something beautiful. When I use Alibaba Cloud, I find I'm on a team that enables me to start the process from turning a problem into a solution.
