Dear Code Academy forum,
Hi, I'm just introducing myself. I hope that I'm posting this in the right place. My name is Gora. I've just begun using Code Academy today. I used Matlab many years ago, but I've never done any other coding, so I'm starting from scratch.
I'm self employed in various jobs, including furniture assembly and moving help, but nothing in IT.
I'm learning coding as I wish to start a career in IT. I would also like to develop websites about things that I'm passionate about such as ecological restoration and sustainable living.
My friend, who is an IT expert, pointed me towards Code Academy. I've started to use it as I find it a very user-friendly site, I like the ethics of the creators, and its free to use.
I'm also doing an online course in software testing.
I wasn't aware that there are meet up events. I would be interested in meeting fellow coders.
I look forward to conversing with you.
Warm regards, Gora
