My name is Taha, I'm an engineering student studying software engineering and distributed computing systems, I'm still at my first year. So, I'm new to coding. ( Go easy on me !! )
It's become fun to code, and seeing the results of a code you've spent some time on creating is quiete satisfying, that's why i'm usually coding by myself( when i have time ) otherwise i'm coding because i'm asked to at my school!
I use Codeacademy because of it's interactive teaching methodes and the simplicity they bring to the language they're teaching.
I've never been to any of the meetups and I haven't produced any example worth talking about but I'm hoping to do that some time soon.
