What are your 2021 goals?

my 2021 goals are to finish the python course and the js course :smiley:


Hello there!
My name is Gianmarco and I am really curious about Coding. I just started and I am really happy to do this as a hobby in 2021. I hope this year would be the year for me and for everyone.
Since I was young, coding really interested me but I have never had the opportunity to do so, but then I found “Codecademy” and I told my self “Bro, you should start now”. So I began with it, just a few days ago.
Hope that this year I’m going to be rich and enter the Univerity.

king regards,


If you are working on something exciting that you really care about, you don’t have to be pushed. The vision pulls you. - Steve Jobs

That quote describes what I’ve been going through the past few weeks. My goal is to complete Data Scientists Career Path, learn R, Learn Data Analysis with Pandas.
I’d love to learn C++ in depth as well.

I hope everyone reaches their goals!


I want to finish these Skill Paths:

  • Analyze Data with SQL
  • Design Databases with PostgreSQL
  • Create a front-end app with React

To finish the Full-Stack Engineer path.


I just purchased access to the Full-Stack Engineer career path, so my goal will be to finish this and find a new position while I progress through it or shortly after finishing it. I work as a dev full time at the moment with desktop applications so it’ll be a learning curve as I open my eyes to the world of web!


To land a Jr. Software Engineer position. Alot of hard work ahead!


I’m completely new to all coding, so my goal is to generate new skills and work on changing careers.
also to participate in the forums and make some new positive friends with who I can discuss my new amazing interest.

please anyone who wants to chat and can offer me any help or advice feel free to message me.
I’m already looking forwards to this new journey

I’m the same as yourself, trying to manage a different career after a decade in my previous one. Here’s a good read, have a peek. Insights from a veteran developer :point_left:

  • At least two rounds of #100DaysOfCode!!
  • Complete the CSS course on Codecademy.
  • Complete the Javascript course on Codecademy.
  • Move on to Sass, React.js, Drupal, and Phaser!
  • Also, search engine optimization!
  • Attend at least 4 (virtual) hackathons and a single game jam.
  • Continuously improve existing projects as I continue learning.
  • Fix/create at least one website for a local business for free. (Check on your local businesses’ websites!!)

And at the end of the year, I should have something resembling a portfolio!


To finally start learning about front end development, HTML and CSS. I have been wanting to for a while, hope I will enjoy the course and find it useful as my long term goal is to WFH for my career! And as an illustrator, I want to do something related to design and visuals.


Keep on keeping on, you’ll get there!


Finish my IT career switch course and get into full time software employment… or my own business.
Doing the full stack… i am kind of enjoying it but just seems to me every time i think i’m getting somewhere i get to a project and completely blank and have to look up how to do it every single time!


These are my big goals for 2021:

  • Finish the front-end career path (>50% already)
  • Upgrade my portfolio with new projects
  • Change my career and find my first Front-end dev. job
  • Continue learning web developement (maybe starting the Full-stack career path?)

I hope to achieve them all. Courage to everybody! :muscle:


That’s awesome. Let me know if you are open to have someone for that projects

Going to need to revise my goal… It was previously to better my performance of 51 badges last year. That was surpassed in January with around 69 badges. Added two more completed courses during that time. That’s okay. There is much to go. Now to complete more courses while I’ve still got some steam.


I’m going to be out of work starting March, so my goals are accelerating for the sake of finding a new job:

  • Daily coding. I mean legit daily. My lease is up end of July, and I need new housing in another state secured by then.
  • I want to finish the data science career path no later than end of May. With more time off, should be possible.
  • After the career path is finished, I want to complete smaller projects on my own. Something to add to my resume.

Basically, out of work, hardcore studying code, and hopefully get ready for a new job relevant in my field in another state. No pressure, lol.

Any newbies in python/SQL/data science path want to start a discord server etc and work together on holding each other accountable daily, HMU!

There is an official Codecademy Discord that you might find useful:

You can also click the “Chat” link at the top of the page.


I want to transition into a career in DevOps, at the minute I’m 90% infrastructure and networking based. I’m starting with golang, ruby, python and will extend to node.js, C++ and C# when I’m more confident with the first three languages.


My 2021 goal is to continue building my webpage which I started not so long ago. If you want to see my website that is still under construction, feel free to private message me and I`ll see if i can share it either there or publicly in this topic.
