About this Site


The New Dev’s Guide is a blog designed to help developers early in their career extend their skills by covering new topics in beginner-friendly ways. While the site is intended for developers in the first few years of their careers, the site will also be helpful to experienced professionals trying to stay current.

Since I strongly believe programming should be fun, expect this site to have a focus on fun, interesting, and absurd applications of programming technologies and a general love for side projects.


Matt Eland being a dork

This site is operated entirely by Matt Eland and does not necessarily represent the views of my employers, colleagues, friends, neighbors, pets, or spouse.

If you’d like to get in touch with me, your best bet is to contact me on Twitter, LinkedIn, or E-Mail me.


Expect the areas of covered content to grow over time and follow my own focal areas.

You should expect content around the following languages:

  • .NET Development (particularly C# and F#)
  • JavaScript and TypeScript
  • Python
  • Cloud computing on Azure

Since I have a heavy focus on AI and Machine Learning due to my own interests, you’ll also see some posts cross-posted from AccessibleAI.dev, my data science blog, from time to time when they’d be valuable to audiences here.

Finally, at some point we may start getting into aspects of game development in Unity using C# as this is often an area of interest for folks and this dovetails nicely with my interest in artificial intelligence.

Alright, that’s all I’ve got. Happy coding!
