Hi all,

My name is Andrew and I am ever so rapidly advancing towards my 30’s! I am autistic and have ADHD. I am from Scotland and have a Honours degree in I.T, a college degree in Games Development with work experience in the Communications field. Due to illness I have been unemployed over the last two years and I am looking to advance to an entry level role in the Big Data field as an Analyst.

I am hoping the materials here can provide stimulation to keep my ADHD in check while I focus on improving myself.

Looking forward to jumping in!

Heya

I come from a retail ops and marketing background and decided to learn programming and web design when I found myself with lots of downtime thanks to Covid. I joined Codecademy to help cement some of the basics I already knew (HTML, CSS) and learn some new languages with the hopes of moving into Front-end development. Many years of using poorly designed web apps and thinking “I wish I knew how to do it myself” have brought me here.

I’m happy to collaborate and learn from others, as well as share my ideas.

Hello everyone!

My name is Andrew and I am from Winnipeg, Canada. I am currently just about to finish my undergrad in Accounting and also currently work as an Accountant. I am in my early thirties and have zero programming knowledge but have been slowly learning with Codecademy which has been a great experience so far. I find it really interesting how many paths and options there are for people who do computer programming and I thought it might be something I would want to do sometime in the future. I enjoy business and I am looking forward on how I can combine my experience and business knowledge with programming in some way.

I was reading some of the introduction posts and I absolutely love to see the wide array of cultural and occupational backgrounds! I am looking forward to learning more and more with all of you!

Hi everyone,
My name is Jolijn. I come from the Netherlands. A while ago I decided to start how to code. My first experience in coding was during my study as graphic designer. I had to make a website. I really liked it and had a little bit understanding of css and html. Now I’am studying the Front-end Engineer path. After finishing this path I hope to be lucky and finding a good job in Front-end development.

Hi everyone! My name is Andy. I’m 30 years old, currently in marketing, mainly graphic design. I wanted to take the leap and expand on my skills as a designer to better understand design limitations when put into technical practice. I also would not mind pursuing a new career path as the tech industry really appears to be growing in my area. My coding experience is super limited to deprecated versions of HTML and CSS, back in the old MySpace days lol.

Hi all!

My name is Remco, 31 years old from the Netherlands. I have a career in audio engineering, mostly live sound. I love it, but recently I have been considering changing paths to webdevelopment. I want a career that’s a little more future proof (especially with the pandemic going on … and on). Years and years ago I learned some basic HTML, but I have been more focused on other things troughout the years.

I’m hoping to learn to code here on Codecademy and make it my new dream job!

Hello everyone! I’m Diego and I am from California. I am currently learning as much about coding before I start a coding bootcamp in the Spring and have fell in love with coding and creating!
My current profession is inventory control in warehousing and I am looking to pursue a new career path in coding and I have fell in love with the lessons Codecademy has to offer.
I can’t wait to keep learning and maybe help out in the learning process as well with whoever may need it.

I wish everyone luck on their endeavors!

Hello everyone, I’m a computer engineering student from the Philippines, and I’m currently taking the full-stack engineer course. I joined Codeacademy because I believe it will hone a ton of programming skills especially since the modules from my college don’t cover much as well. This platform was helpful to me during my studies for programming basics via YouTube. My goal right now is to earn more credentials in my field of learning and probably learn more about machine learning and I am looking forward to what this platform has to offer. And, if you’ve reached my introduction at this point, I’m wishing you success in whatever journey you’re involved in, best of luck, and see you around :slight_smile:

Hey, I’m Paul!

29 from the UK and currently work in education as a teacher with a background in graphic design. I’m interested in a career change, I’ve always had an interest in web design, so am finally starting my journey into learning. I have a few friends who have learnt via Codecademy and have now moved on to careers within web development so they couldn’t recommend this enough. Looking forward to seeing where this takes me!

If anyone has any pointers or advice it would be more than welcome!

Thanks all!

Hey Hey !

My name is Mert I am 24 y.o, im coming from Berlin-Germany and found Codeacademy like 1 Week ago.

I am a really big nerd who loves Anime, Gaming and TCG. (wanna learn DnD now) Really love to meet new people and maybe YOU! are my next best friend who knows. Write me anytime and we can talk about programming and hobby maybe a project u have in mind and need help?

Here’s a short story about me:

I really love to program and found my love to programming a couple years ago where I learned objective-c and swift to develop some App’s. But after a year I knew it wasn’t the right choice for me developing apps on my Own was boring and I couldn’t find any startUps or companies who would hire a self-taught guy without real experience. So I have ended my career as a App Developer and started to do some music which helped me trough a hard time…
This year I tried to apply to some companies, but unfortunately it didn’t work out, although I wrote over 120+ applications.
In November I found a bootcamp near here for which I learn JS/HTML/CSS/SQL/REACT and more, so I have an easy start. Codeacademy came really perfect and I loved learning my first steps here! Immediately bought the Pro version and now I’m learning every day for 1 week. Most of the time 9-10 hours a day because it captivates me so much.

So that’s my Story :slight_smile:

If u want to know more about me just DM me :smiley:
See ya!

Hi all!

I work as a tech support engineer for an e-commerce/fintech company. I support front and back-end integrations, but sometimes it is too much info so it is easy to be lost in the rush of it all.

I hope to learn as much as I can about the languages we use: Java/Javascript. I’m completely self-taught so I am jumping into a bootcamp to learn more about the whole process and sharpen my skills!

Let’s all keep learning as best we can (it’s OK to take breaks sometimes :raised_hands:)
