Hey guys and gals!
I'm a Computer & Network security student, but am also studying to (hopefully) be part of a Coding school right here in the little state of Delaware! Our very first coding school has me revved up for coding. I always wanted to learn, especially as I learned more about cyber security I learned that coding is essential not only for understanding issues, but in creating solutions. In addition to this though, our area is booming for software developers - and the more I learn coding, the more I realize just how much I love it. I'm an older student, as I have actually been in customer service for years and have also been a published author - but thanks to school and getting some great advice from my college advisor, my career went down a different path that utilized my skills more accurately. I have one degree already and am working on my second one. I hope to be able to give advice on here one day to others as I learn and go along myself (especially while the lessons are still fresh in my mind). Thank you to all the teachers, contributors, and other classmates who help us newbs get through these lessons together! Take care!
Cindy

Hi! I'm Amber !

A little about me.. I'm 21 female.. a complete nerd, I recently found out I have Asperger's syndrome..

I'm looking to learn coding to improve my my skill set, cause let's be honest that's the only reason I'm gonna get hired, I'm currently in a 5-6 month class that focuses on business skills. Mostly that means a lot of basic computer skills. Well, I know all Microsoft office 2010, so I'll be on here while everyone else is learning how to format a word document. However, I will be the one that has to have the manner class and "how to not cry in front of your boss" and "how to not to go into too much detail in your first post."

Hey everyone!

I’m Joah. I’m 18 years old, and I’m a native Texan. I work as a Software Engineer at AmeriCommerce. For my job, I basically do JS-fu wherever it’s needed. I’ve been a part of the Codecademy community for ~3 years, and a forums moderator for ~2.5. I am fluent in HTML5, CSS3, Sass, JavaScript, CoffeeScript, Python, Ruby, Perl, Bash, and Zsh.


#5

I'm Zeke Y, age 15, and homeschooled. I've been an enthusiastic user of Codecademy for a while now, ever since late 2013 I think :)
I like working with Rails, HTML/CSS, and JavaScript, but I'm hoping to learn Python Django and ReactJS someday. My current main projects are school and Codecademy Redesigned, a Chrome/Firefox extension that redesigns the Q&A forums on Codecademy and adds several new features into or back into Codecademy.

Hey, I'm Tony, probably the oldest guy in town so I will not tell you my age. The platform is looking good and I'm also anxious to see it live.
Cheers!

Hi Everyone,

I spend my days providing IT support to a wide variety of people at a Canadian university. I'm happy to be here at Codecademy, helping new coders get over the bumps and on their way to their coding adventures!

Interested in a creative challenge?

Hello.

Maciej Wiercioch, 22 years old, computer science student. My main interests are SVM's (support vector networks) and natural language processing. I like algorithmic problems, hackathons and pierogi.

Former codecademy moderator and current moderator of codecademy.reddit.com where I am trying to help users.

Why I love codecademy? You can always get a good laugh.

Hello,

Roy, here. I won't tell you my age, either, but only admit to having four grand children. My energy here has been focused upon helping new learners get over the hurdles. Even though I have no formal training, personal projects and helping others has given me a fairly good understanding of core concepts. My biggest weakness is verbosity. Answers tend to be tl dr, though it follows my desire to give some take away.

Hi my name is chris.
January 2014, I retired from the Army after 20 years of service. My job in the army was a communications chief. I was responsible for planning, setting up and maintaining all of the radio, wire and automation for the unit. I have been working on computers, networks and servers for over 20 years. My first few jobs after the Army were a system administrator job for Healthcare.gov, backup engineer position for the US Air Force and most recently a senior training specialist for the US Army. We recently moved to Middleton, ID where I am working as a systems analyst which involves modifying and writing SQL scripts for various SQL DB servers as well as other Sys Admin functions.

I joined Codeacademy a few years ago but I have not taken full advantage of what is offered here. Recently I started the Java lesson to refresh myself on syntax and the like in preparation for a Android programming class I took. And now I am starting the SQL class to get myself some of the basics.

thanks

Helluw !

I'll introduce myself to you... :slightly_smiling: . My name is Lars Carré, I'm a 16 year old student who lives Belgium.
I don't have a job, but I will soon enough after College :smiley: . I'm really interested in Programming and therefore I'm trying to finish courses on Code Academy. I'm still learning everyday, which explains my profile picture, as I am still a work in progress... I hope to become a good programmer one day... I really can't wait to learn more and more! As I'm currently working with Python and soon start Java for school.
I haven't been able to use it yet. Luckily I know some basics of CSS and HTML in which I've supported a lot of friends by making websites and my Grandma's website for charity: Vale Viver.

I'd like to share with you that I love the community and I'd like to say: Keep up the good work!
Thanks for these awe-inspired courses :wink:

Keep coding!
Cheers, Lars.

Hello, My name is Wil. I was told about this website by my brother who has been learning here for a while now. I saw him developing a web page one day and asked where he learned how to do it. I am very interested in marketing/web design. While I have the marketing skills, everything in the marketing world is going digital and that is what I am lacking. So here I am, trying to figure it all out. I have completed the HTML section and now I'm on to Java. I will probably learn everything here by the time I'm done. I am so glad this site exists because with my current job I can't actually go to a class, so this is perfect! Thanks Code Academy!

Hey guys, it's cool to be able to talk to you guys finally instead of just checking code. All that seemed just a little too official and it's nice to be able to see who the real "you" is.

My name is Alex, and am currently serving in the armed forces at the age of 21. It's nice to be able to code again, but I started off on Visual Basic 6, and the C languages. (I can't wait to get to Java!). I joined codecademy when my programming teacher suggested it when I was back in high school, he actually changed my course for the school year to JavaScript back when it was still a little less refined. So I spent almost three months just learning JavaScript and gave him a report on the site, and what I thought of it in it's early stages.

For a brand new site, codecademy was an amazing concept that I had never seen before, I was excited and couldn't wait to work more on it. I dropped out from 2013-2015(about a month ago) It's so much different from the early days that I first saw available with only two or three languages at most. I can't wait to catch up and learn more from not only the site, but from all of you guys!

--EDIT--

I JUST HIT MY 31 DAY STREAK! :smiley: so excited!

Howdy/नमस्ते/Hola/Salut…

I’m Jacob John, 16 years old. I am currently in grade 12 and started codecademy in 2013 as a part of a school course to learn python. So far, I’ve completed all six languages on codecademy, almost all APIs, and all web developer skills. So as you can tell I've finished all of Codecademy and yeah it took a while (2 years) xD

Furthermore, I also wish to study computer science as a major at university.

My favorite thing about codecademy is probably its forums as I’ve never seen a forum this active, helpful and friendly for any code based website so far.

I haven’t specifically done any code projects but wish to do so one day. This mainly because I’ve been extremely busy and such projects might end up taking hours of my time. But I do wish to do several of these in university and use the skills acquired to my advantage.

Thanks a lot, codecademy and its users for all the help so far!! :smiley:

P.S. If you wish to hit me up on skype, do so at MCjohn5on
