Hey everyone.

Im Baz, im 30 and live in the U.K.

I currently work in a factory, its not a place I want to be in hence me being here trying to learn new skills. I took the Computer Science path and im currently half way through the Python section and im really enjoying it.

I have to say though, I am abit doubtful of online learning. where do you go from here after completing a path? How do i make myself more attactive to potential employers? is there any success stories from people that used Codecademy and managed to find a job afterwards?

I’m an old man trying to learn new things

I have been in testing for 8 years and never could learn the coding bits and just kinda fumbled around till I got what I needed working.

I want to use the coding skills to help people similarly to how codecademy is helping me–bettering their lives. I haven’t define how yet.

I this place is helping me learn how to code so i can find a way to help people with my code.

I have taken the HTML and some of the CSS stuff, and completed the SQL bits in the Data Scientist path. I have also completed the code foundations path.

I haven’t been to any meet ups

I was able to write my own query to help me retrieve data quickly on one of my projects. Thank you very much for helping me learn this stuff.

I want to say to everybody don’t get discouraged and keep trying!

-Jesse

Hello!

My name is Jake and I am currently a University student.

I joined Codecademy in order to make a major change in my life. After jumping from major to major, I have come to realize that I want to work in a field that I am truly passionate about: Technology. Specifically, I want to learn programming so that I can enter the game industry (if not that then I am fine with being a software engineer!),

I have just finished the Code Foundations course and I think I am now going to pursue the Computer Science path and see where it goes. So far, my favorite thing about Codecademy is its accessibility. Unlike my Grade 9 Computer Science class, I don’t feel as though I am being overwhelmed with too many instructions at once. I am able to understand what I am being told and I am grateful that the website allows me to learn things at my own pace.

I have not been to any meetups yet but I am willing to attend some if my schedule permits. As for work, I don’t have any to show yet but I will in time!

And…that’s about it! I look forward to working with all of you and I look forward to learning whatever you wish to teach me! :blush:

Hi, my name is Elizabeth. I am 29 and a mother of three and step-mother of two.
I have taken classes for Java, javaScript, HTML, and CSS. I’m currently unemployed and hope to finish college within the next two years (slowly but surely) and find a career suited for my situation.
I enjoy learning to code and trying different things. I’ve been using Codeacademy since my first college courses two years ago (like I said, slowly but surely).
I don’t have any examples of work because I don’t feel I know enough or have gotten good enough to really put together anything worth-while but I hope to eventually have enough knowledge to have a career doing something I enjoy.

I’m in manufacturing supply chain, lady in 20s and love to learn foreign languages.
I can get by in Japanese, Mandarin, French - working on Hindi, Korean, and Cantonese. It’s fascinating to me how languages develop and mature and evolve over time, especially as they come into contact with other languages and cultures.

Originally I wanted to see how my approach to learning the structure of spoken languages worked to pick up the logic of programming languages, and now after studying 1-2 years on CA I use these languages on side projects at work. I also discovered that i enjoy teaching others how to use Google Analytics.

This year I’d like to get involved volunteering with children to get them on board studying STEM. I myself was a poly sci student and I didn’t think to get into STEM until graduating uni and saw that’s where the jobs are. Growing up in certain rural/depressed areas and the mindset puts blinders on you and what you think is possible for the future (“Coding is only for really smart people/boys/people who can afford expensive degrees/insert stereotype here.”), so one of my New Year’s resolutions is to guide these kids to see past all that and give it a go. :slight_smile:

Hey there, I’m Mae!

I’m 25 and currently work in the Education field. I love it, but I find it so boring and wish I could do more. I would love to understand the inner workings of website building and design which is my passion. I hope that these guides help refresh what I already know about HTML and CSS and bring new light to Java! I haven’t don’t much besides play around in the beginning clases, but so far I really like how helpful it is!

Hey programmers!

I’m a very amateur coder who is learning game development.

Still in school, nothing special.

A mix of both. I want to make games for fun and when I can get a full time job I plan on getting a job involving C# or C++.

I use it to learn C languages (still waiting on C#) and my favorite thing is that it is so easy to learn with its mix of text and even visual representations.

I’ve taken CSS, HTML, part of Ruby, part of C++, Github command line, and part of Javascript I believe. If and when it comes out I would take C# for unity.

Nope.

Sadly I think I deleted all of them, but if I still had my mini-websites I would share them!

Hello Everyone, I am Paul.

I am 38 years old. I was diagnosed with Autism 4 years ago. I profess to be disabled, full time.
I plan to use my new skills to start free lancing in the future.
I have chosen to use Codecademy because I find the teaching interactive, and I am able to put my new skills to the test with the projects.
I am currently following the web development path, I have completed html basics, but have had to start css and javascript modules again as I didn’t fully understand them the first time.
I have never been to any meetups or events.
I don’t have any examples of my work so far.

Kind Regards
Paul

Steven

Teacher

Personally

To code, and the number of courses

Just HTML for now, more to come!

There is such thing as that?! Okay, so nope.

Hoping to have some soon.

Great! :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi,

I’m Jon. I’m from the UK but have been living in Barcelona in Catalonia/Spain for just over 10 years now. I’ve had a varied professional life so far, from financial analyst specialising in pay and benefits, to spa receptionist, to English teacher. I originally studied German and Russian at university, and I’ve always been fascinated by languages and linguistics. I’m now fluent in Spanish, and my Catalan is getting stronger too.

I’ve recently developed a keen interest in cryptocurrency and blockchain, and would love to develop a career in this area in the future. That’s why I’m learning to code, and what’s brought me to Codecademy. I eventually intend to take some courses oriented towards the cryptocurrency and blockchain industries, ultimately specialising in blockchain and dapp (decentralised applications) programming. But, as I’m new to coding, I want to get a good solid grounding first, and Codecademy courses seem like a great way to do this and get this journey started. :smiley:

I’ve already completed the Code Foundations and Introduction to HTML courses, and I’m currently working my way through Learn CSS. Next up: JavaScript… followed by C++

At least that’s the plan… but I’m also going to leave myself open to other possibilities, as I explore, learn, and develop more.

Good luck to all of you on your journeys too! Looking forward to some of our paths crossing at some point! :smiley:

Hi everyone!
My name is Flavio. I am a 29 y.o. Design student and freelance draftsman, I am quite new to codeuniverse and trying to get know it as much as I can to see how I can apply code skills to my profession. Since an early age I developed a passion and curiosity for IT technology and that is why I am still insisting with it. I am signing up to the community forum as I hope to find the right support to progress and improve my skills.
