Hello everyone!

My name is Daniel. Professionally I am in the health industry specifically pharmaceutics and alternative healthcare. I practice Ayurveda alongside working in a local pharmacy. I have always wanted to learn coding and am looking forward to being able to incorporate the skills I learn here to possibly have a side career to help my plans of having a low/no cost clinic for my local community.
I really like the interactive nature of Codecademy’s courses. So far I have taken the HTML and CSS classes and am working on the website building course and the Bootstrap course.
My plans are to take courses to widen my knowledge base and be a full stack developer so as to be able to do both freelance and possibly professional work.
Thank you to all of the contributors on here who are helping make this type of info more easily accessible and low cost so that everyone can reach it!

Take care,

    Not yet, I don’t have any work worth sharing yet, but i’ll update this post when it happens :wink:

Hello Everyone:
I am a pharmacist and I would love to transition into something that would combine coding with health care…Perhaps develop programs or apps to use on computers, tablets and smart phones. I’m currently taking the Web Development path to achieve my goals. I just joined yesterday but I’m very excited to learn and develop new coding skills!


hey i am in 8th grade and some of the coding work is hard and i find myself just pushing solution every time how can i do better i am also 13 so yeah all good and i am about to turn 14:confounded::confounded::pensive:


Hi there, I’m Brian Petersen

I work at a hospital in the IT department - mainly as a project manager for now - rolling out Windows 10 to the 6000 computers we have. I also do troubleshooting and maintenance.

I have tried getting into coding for the fun of it the last year or so, but it seems I had the approach wrong. I started really big with creating a inventory management program using SQLite and C#. I have realized I need more basic skills for this to work.
I have grabbed Python instead, as it seems more straight forward. The book I got in C# is great, but very “american” - more pages, more money :slight_smile:

I found Codecademy in a weekly mail I subscribe to and thought it might be a nice place to get a structured look at coding. I am currently chewing my way through Python 3 intro courses and really like the way I get feedback pronto. :smiley:

I will drop it here, when I feel I have something share-worthy.

Ohh and I am 42 and from Denmark. :stuck_out_tongue:


I’m a student looking for a new hobby! :smile: I’m learning Python right now (I’ll probably start on Java or Ruby when I finish, if I’m patient enough :upside_down_face:). Hopefully I’ll be sticking around for a while longer! Cheers! :wave:


Ssup! ~

i’m an 20y.o. it-student. i decided to start learning programming with html, css and javascript, then try something more complicated, cause i really want to work in game development.

hope you are all having a good day!


Sup, Im a 20 year-old bluesman that currently lives in assisted housing in germany who wants to see if coding is for me and maybe will do it professionally. Im creative and I love tech.

Hi , I am David and I do not work in IT but in financial services. I am just looking to learn some new skills and maybe one day would like to build my own website from scratch.

Hello all,
I’m Noelle, I’m a college student taking computer science and web development courses. I’m trying to do my best to learn new things in the vast world of computer science. I joined Codecademy because a friend recommended it to me for getting better in my field of study. I’m going to learn Javascript and HTML. And no, I haven’t been to any events yet.
Pleased to meet you all!:grin:


Hi all,
My name is Matthew.
I’m a London(UK) firefighter of 29years who is trying to learn C++ so that i can try to create/replicate projects with the Aduino that i have on order.
I’m using CA as it was recommended by a friend as a good place to start learning to code.
I’ve not done anything since i was 14yo trying to get to grip with BASIC on the BBC B Micro computer.
I’ve not been to any meetups but would like to hear of any events in my area that i could attend.

I’m probably going to be on here quite a bit as i can see myself struggling with some of the concepts and learning curve.


Hi, I am Aaradhanah, came here to learn JavaScript


Hi everyone,

My name is Olivier, I’m 27 years old and I come from the Netherlands. I have learned to code at Codecademy since the beginning this year. I want to specialize in data science which could be really useful to my current job and study interests. Currently I have a Pro membership but I consider to take at least one Intense course within a few months. I really like to share experiences and tips with your community on how to apply your coding your skills to your current job or how to create side earnings through coding projects. I’m looking forward to all conversations with you on this forum! :slight_smile:


Hey there!

I’m a language arts student with an avocational interest in the internet and cyber-security. I plan to use coding in art endeavors and to further my understanding of how these media that affect our lives so strongly actually function. Codecademy seems useful so far because of its gameified layout. I find it easier and more enjoyable to learn through lessons like those provided by Codecademy. Nothing yielded from my work here yet, but we’ll see.’

Best from Brazil,


Hi my name is Kyle miskovic and i am 15 years old,Currently I am jobless (unless u call going to school a job).

I have not been to any of the meetups/events didn’t even know that was a thing .
None right now I am on introduction to javascript on the rock, Paper, scissors one.

Hello, nice to meet you all.

First of, my name if Florane, I’m a 27 years old town planning engineer from France, currently trying to undergo a career change to switch to programming. Since I don’t want to do it blindly, I’ve started courses here, first off to check if it would really interest me as a full time job (not easy throwing your engineering degree in the dumpster !) and to learn basic skills to actually make a better choices on the path I want to take. Currently, I decided (after finishing basic courses) to go for Python as a first language.


Hi, I’m Charrise, and I joined Code academy because it is a way for me to learn coding so I can learn and gain some experience for a computer science career. I am a college student, I’m still new to code academy so I don’t know what my favorite thing about it is, and I’ve never been at a meetup or event.


Hi, I’m Paul and I am new to coding. I’ve joined Codecademy so I can learn all there is to know about coding. I intend on doing/learning all courses on offer and have a ■■■■ of a lot of fun while doing so. I look forward to getting help from like minded people, trust me I will need help!

Thanks peoples!
Keep smiling cause it makes people wonder what you have been up to!
