What is your industry and profession?
My industry is nothing, I’ve worked for many industries. This is because my current “profession” is a Customer Service Agent.
Were do you plan to use your new coding skills? Personally/professionally?
I plan to use them professionally. For me, I must invest in changing my career. At 29, i can no longer continue to work as a Customer Service agent taking calls over the phone. As a man I want to move my career that pushes me, a career I can take pride in, a career that pushes me further to learn and of course that can provide more for me as well.
Why do you use Codecademy and what is your favorite thing about it?
I use Codeacademy because I am new to programming. I love being able to use in the browser IDE, even though it doesnt teach me 100% the basics of programming I believe it to be a great stepping stone.
What courses have you taken, or are planning to take?
Currently taking web development course, as I believe I can obtain a job in Web Development in a few months of hard dedicated work. From there, I plan to continue working but ultimately I want to become a software developer.
Have you been to any of our meetups, or events?
No I have not.
Do you have any examples of work that you have done using the skills you learned at Codecademy?
As of yet no
I hope to become very active on these forums.
