Hello there, My Name is Matias am 27 years old. About a year ago I decided to try teaching myself python for fun and ended up enjoying it more than i imagined i would. Now im looking into possibly switching careers lol. But anyways, decided i needed more of a structured path so i decided to give codeacademy a try. Currently doing the front end dev course. looking forward into seeing what i can learn.
Hi I am Matthew (29 years old). I am a high school science/computer science teacher. I have been learning and teaching React Native with Expo the past year or so, and have felt I needed a platform to push my students farther and faster. Am very excited to have found that in CodeAcademy. I am also excited to see courses for native development in Swift/SwiftUI and Java/Kotlin. This seems like the perfect place for us.
I have written some exceptional blogs on platforms like medium and devto. I am working on React projects for ThemeSelection.
I’m here to enjoy learning to code. There are already some ideas in my mind that require knowledge of web development. Professionally I work as a pilot, but think that mix of that two will really work for me. Im interested if someone would like to be a studdy buddy. Thanks!
My name is Alex and I am a math major in community college. I am still currently working at Costco and occasionally I would work as a math tutor in college. I hope to become a full stack developer and have my own business one day. I’ve been learning web development on my own but I’ve always seem to hit road blocks. I did take web development class in college but we are learning word press which I don’t understand why. I hope code academy can help polishing my web development skills.
I just joined Codecademy a few days ago.
So far I am enjoying the social & interactive aspects provided, which is what I was looking for. I used to take Colt Steele Courses over at Udemy and don’t get me wrong, I am a massive Colt Steele fan. Colt is top notch
Why I am here?
I just saw the opportunity to learn more and I was also looking for more interaction as mentioned before. I have my heart set on becoming a full stack developer and in a few weeks I will be starting a part-time university course and I will need all the experience I could get.
So far I am enjoying Codecademy, I hope that it will help me achieve my goals.
If anyone reads this, I could really use a partner to help me achieve this goal, whether it be a mentor or someone starting the full stack engineer course like myself, I could really use the accountability.
Nice to meet you all, have a good one!
My name is Joe. I am a semi retired tech engineer, musician, educator from the Chicago area. I am married and have 4 children and 7 grandchildren. I am a life long learner and a life long educator. I am nourishing my quest for knowledge. I wish to build my skills to be a full-stack engineer. I am also starting a small business which these new skills will help support. I enjoy meeting new people and sharing ideas.
I have worked in IT for most of the past 15 years (mostly back-end, SQL, server administration). I used to love programming and am feeling burnt out. Hoping to change that and figure out next steps while building a portfolio.
Hi there, I am Tana. I’m quite new to coding. I work currently as a Drilling Engineer but I hope to switch my career to Tech by early 2023. Hopefully, I will be well equipped to work as a software developer after completing my Full Stack Engineer Career Path on Codecademy. I’m happy to receive advice and guidance from other members of this community.
I am 43 years old, from Berlin and originally studied statistics and mathematics. At first I had a job as a clinical data manager and clinical programmer using SAS. Those didn’t go well, there was always knowledge or experience missing in order to do the job to their satisfaction.
Then I had a job as an onboarding agent, didn’t code there at all but it was the job I had longest.
I watched a 19h video and reading a 600 page book about D3, but can still not understand most of how it works. Maybe a job with less programming is better, I don’t know. I thought I am IT affine but I don’t see myself as a full developer/programmer like my friend is.
A different video and a shorter book helped me more, they were both intended more for beginners whereas the first ones were targeted at intermediates.
Currently I am trying to solve a Zoom problem which doesn’t work correctly. Is this the right place to ask for help?
Hello! I feel a bit hesistant to introduce myself, since i am very new and still trying to find my way here. I am a dutch female, 29 years old, i work mostly online for a mental health platform, and i just began the front-end engineer path course. I am feeling a tad bit overwelhemed by all the information and already suffering from imposter syndrome, haha, but i think i just have to get familiar around here. Love to meet you all!
I’m a 27 year old from London, England. Recently got fired from my job in consulting and trying to figure out what to do next in my career path.
My flatmate is a software developer and suggested I look into learning to code- which brings me here.
Looking to get stuck in and give things a go and see what happens!
