Welcome to our forums! Please Introduce Yourself


Hello! My name is Alex, and I am a 17 year old High School Senior. I am planning on studying Computer Science at a four-year university. I have been using Code Academy off and on for the past few months, but I am interested in getting started with learning Python. I am pretty familiar with HTML and CSS from using it in one class that I'm currently taking. I hope to help others out with their coding questions in the near future.


Hello everyone,

I'm in my 30's I live in Germany. I graduated in Arts in the UK. I speak 3 languages (Italian, English, German) and learning Brazilian Portuguese. After that I'm planning to learn 2-3 more languages.
I used to attend some evening courses on HTML and on how to build a website , but this was a while ago. I'm now planning to attend an apprenticeship course in Applications Development therefore I am refreshing and updating my basic knowledge on HTML. I generally find the IT field very interesting.

I'm enjoying learning through Codecademy. It's a great platform. Thank you.


Hello everyone,
My name is Bart and I am as green as it comes when it comes to coding. I am currently learning as much as I can about HTML and CSS for the purpose of learning front end Web development. My main purpose is to learn a new skill, regardless of the outcome. I love learning new things, but with a house full of kids and three jobs to put food in all those mouths I don't get to increase my educational endeavors nearly as much as I would like to. Fortunately, coding is something I can learn at home and get the kids involved too. In addition to committing to learning to code, I am an avid guitar player and singer/songwriter. I don't do that as well as I would like to either, but I enjoy the process. Now I'm off to post a thread about some code I'm obviously doing wrong.

Badges! - Howto?

Hi everyone :smile: My name is Arianne. I have been learning to code for more than half a year now, and I still discover new things every day! Although I enjoy this very much and even consider it to be my hobby, I am not sure if I want to do something with my skills in the future. I don't have a job yet, and I want to think about my future very carefully before I choose what I want to be.
I am Dutch and also still learning English, so I'm sorry if I made any mistakes.
My knowledge about coding and computers is not very extensive, so any advice is welcome.
Good luck with your coding everyone, and I want to wish you all a merry Christmas :smile:

Heya everybody! I'm a team lead for a server infrastructure team at a Fortune 500 company. I've come here to learn how to do some programming in my spare time. I plan on learning JavaScript and jQuery to write some web apps for our internal customers. I have already taken the Python courses and have used the knowledge gained there to write some scripts to grab, present, and email information to our customers from some linux servers.

I'm excited to be back and look forward to seeing how I can use JavaScript and jQuery to further improve our business.

Hi everyone,
My name is David and i'm not really sure what I am professionally anymore, lol. I think that's what i'm using Codeacademy to help me rediscover. I'm currently studying Ruby as part of the DevBootCamp admissions process here in San Deigo, CA. For the past 7.5 of the last 10 years I've been a project manager in the healthcare software industry working with hospitals and medical facilities implement electronic health record and claims management applications.

I'm hoping to use Codeacademy in tandem with DevBootCamp and other resources to jump start my career after spending the last 2.5 years unemployed, surviving cancer and homelessness. I'm also studying to take the CCNA R/S and Cloud exams early next year.
