Intoduction


#1

Hi, I'm not entirely new to codecademy. But, I haven't been active ever. I actually used scratch, and I still use it now mainly for the community. I like to go on there and persuade kids to get into the coding business. I just wanted to introduce myself, I actually like this site more because you can't follow people, not to say you can't be online friends. So, it takes away the factor, that kids like, of getting followers. I am currently learning html because I wanted to work for mit once I turn 18. And, one of the job descriptions told me I needed to know html. Although, I've been told by other people that now it's pretty much a useless language. I also know java, and visual basic. Any suggestions on what I should learn next? I am considering python, but ruby has a nice ring to it.


#2

wrong place. Sorry ignore this. I'll move it.


#3

html is just a markup language, it fairly simple. Still useful, otherwise building webpages becomes a bit tricky

Isn't visual basic pretty much death? I thought so at least

Java is a good choice, you can python or ruby beside it, that is also fine

let me move that for you, otherwise we get duplicate topics


#4

Thanks. Yes, visual basic is death, (so was my teacher for that matter). It's not that bad, and has a lot more lax syntax. Good thing, if you forget those semicolons though. :joy:


#5

What is your profile picture by the way?:confused:


#6

haha, true

This is my profile picture:

it is to small to read on my profile picture


#7

Ah. Okay. :joy: I used linux once, on a raspberry pi.


#8

I have a dell latitude at the moment, but the majority of my time is spent on my school chromebook. I HATE IT!!! This thing can't run anything. I can't do any of my JAVA homework programs. The only thing this cp's useful for is writing essays, I can't even open the thing without wifi.


#9

raspberry pi's are fun, so much you can do wit them

That is not nice, you could (if possible) boot from a linux usb, so you have a normal linux distro.


#10

At home I only have Microsoft. There is only so much you can do when you are restricted by your parents.


#11

Your parents have enough technical knowledge to implant a restriction? That sucks.


#12

No. They won't allow me, and I just don't do things without their permission. I know if they found out I probably wouldn't be able to touch a computer for a week.


#13

However, my school has implanted restrictions. I'm lucky I can get on codecademy at school. All sites listed under entertainment are blocked. I think this falls under education, so I'm okay.


#14

Hehe. I just put your picture into an html file at 1000px by 1000 px. It's too blurry to read.


#15

that is why i posted an enlarged version in this topic?


#16

I know. I just was trying to see if it worked.


#17

most likely not, i suspect codecademy stores them as thumbnails, which means you stretch them, causing them to become of really poor quality


#18

I finally finished the html tutorial. I had a problem writing my resume because I made the ID left and right, and didn't make them classes.


#19

It's hard to believe how easy that was to learn though.


#20

html and css are just markup languages, they are relatively easy to learn.
