I may have put my name down in certain places, but generally I just go by my handle online, killjoy131.
- What is your industry and profession?
I’m currently working as an intern, but hopefully will be able to hold a decent-paying job when my skills improve and I have more experience under my belt.
- Where do you plan to use your new coding skills? Personally/professionally?
Ideally, both! I am using a lot of the skills I’ve learned at work, but am on a constant lookout for fun or interesting things to chart or work on as a personal project.
- Why do you use Codecademy and what is your favorite thing about it?
It caught my eye a few years ago, because it was a good and smooth way to get started on really basic topics. My favourite thing would be the support infrastructure; reaching out to them was a pleasant experience whenever I had feedback or anything else to bring up.
- What courses have you taken, or are planning to take?
Some data science-related ones, and some python courses. I started coding with C++ and Java when I was in school, but have come to prefer Python due to its sheer simplicity in writing.
- Have you been to any of our meetups, or events?
There are none in my country, so no. Haha
- Do you have any examples of work that you have done using the skills you learned at Codecademy?
Not yet. I have done some stuff for my company, but I can’t share that. Would certainly share a personal project if I thought it would be interesting, though!
