Welcome to our forums! Please Introduce Yourself

Hello everyone! I go by Bellota (Powerpuff GIrl’s Buttercup’s name in Spanish), and I’m learning programming languages mainly for myself. I’ve always wanted to learn how to create websites, apps, and video games—which is why I joined Codecademy. I was previously learning how to use HTML & CSS on Freecodecamp, but I’m having trouble putting into figuring out how to put what I’ve learned into practice and I’m trying to find a community that can help me out.

I’m 26 years old, Mexican female, I live in California, studying agriculture, neurodivergent (ADHD), and have many interests that I have only been able to learn about on the surface level.

As I’ve stated, I’m having trouble putting things into practice. I draw a blank as soon as I have to sit down and start doing the work. I’m looking for buddies who want to practice together and just goof around if needed.


Hello everyone! I am excited to be here!
I won’t state my age because I don’t feel it and don’t want to bias anyone :slight_smile:
I have another profession but the industry is undergoing cataclysmic change driven by cost, labor and supply constraints, changing consumer demand and declining reimbursements. To help my industry into the 21st century I want to be able to collaborate more closely with the programmers and coders to create meaningful information systems.
I have had some coding education in SQL and Python. I am focused here on HTML, CSS and JavaScript.
I look forward to chatting with everyone!

Hello. I’m Dan. I’m 34 years old and currently live in San Diego.

I used to work in education in South Korea, but moved to the states after marriage. I’ve always wanted to do something computer related as a career, but didn’t take the plunge. So here I am learning CSS and JavaScript. I’m wanting to learn some Python too.

I would love to find other individuals who are in the path of learning (and compare notes and such) or mentor me.

Hi Everyone,

Im Alonzo just joined with no experience in CS. Want to increase my skill set and learn about Web Development. Excited for this journey.

Hey, my name is Chris. I am 35 and currently an outside sales rep for an industrial supply company. Recently I began building a webstore for my employer and it brought back my love for computers/coding. I decided to get on here to expand my knowledge on the topic and see where it takes me.

I’m Alex and I’m a 17 years old high school student learning to code, basically just exploring different areas of knowledges and looking forward to expand my perspectives. I’m also trying to figure out what career do I want to choose in the future and if coding is for me. Besides all, coding is pretty cool and I just thought I finally find a time to learn since it’s summer!

Hello! My name is Irakli and I have recently dropped out from university to follow my career as a web-developer. My goal is to get hired as soon as possible, and to learn best practices to build beautiful, interactive, highly functional websites. What fascinates me about this career path is how much information is out there ready to be absorbed. Wish Good luck to anyone who fights for their dreams!

Hi all! My name is Ludwick(they/them)! I’m new to programming but I’m super excited to get started. Currently I’m a content writer but I’m hoping coding can help me expand my services. I used to play around on Netscape’s html page builder when I was a kid and I’ve always had a love for web design. I hope to learn a lot from this sit and I’m excited to meet you all!

Hi everyone,

My name is Joey. I’ve been working through the full stack web developer path for about a month now, but this is my first time posting in the forums. I’m 41 years old and attempting to start my 3rd career. Worked for Enterprise Rent-A-Car for 6 years as a manager and loss control supervisor. Switched to teaching high school health and PE which I did for 10 years. It took me 10 years to get burnt out. One of my good friends has promised to hire me as a web developer at the end of July. Since I don’t know what I’m doing, I am hoping that CodeAcademy will get me up to speed.

I hope I’m able to connect with a few people who are on similar journey’s. Thanks for reading!

Hi Joey. I am also 41 and toying with the idea of career change. It is a bit scary but nice to know someone is willing to offer you a job. Good for you!
I have a full time job so it won’t be easy, I guess. Your post encouraged me to proceed. Thank you for sharing your journey!

Hello everyone,
My name is Alice, I am 37. I am Italian but I have been living in Canada for the past 7 years. I have a degree in archaeology, but at 27 years old I decided to quit everything to travel the world and explore new culture and countries.

Have fun!

Hello! I’m Sebastian!
I’m 23 male that always loved computers and has studied one thing or two on Web Development and Data Science/ML which led to my current role as a Data Analyst. Today with Codecademy I’ve finally decided to take my professional development a lot more serious and will work toward my goal of finishing the Full Stack Software Engineer Career Path and then continue working on the Data Scientist’s Career Paths available.

Hello I am Roel! I am a 22 year old guy that is learning web development to enter back into the tech industry. I started out as an IT Specialist for a year but left after everyone went into lockdown in 2020. Since then I realized I don’t want to work that job anymore but create meaningful applications that solve problems. I’m excited for what the future holds!
