Hey everyone, I’m Quincy. I’m a 39-year-old teacher in Dallas, Texas. I started freeCodeCamp.org back in 2014.
I created this thread so we can all introduce ourselves to one another.
If you are in one of the countries hit hard by the coronavirus – and are doing the responsible thing of socially distancing yourself from others to slow the spread – introduce yourself here. We can all help one another learn to code together online.
And when the dust settles, many of us will be able to go out and get new jobs as developers.
I took a bootcamp in Cincinnati last fall that really didn’t cover React and Redux. Recently I was hired by another bootcamp to be an instructor, and I’m using FCC to teach myself React and Redux because I need to be good enough to teach it by June!
Its been a huge help to me and I’m lucky to have the job I have, so I signed up to start donating last night. I’d encourage anyone who has the means to do the same.
Hey there everyone, I’m Danny! I’m from the UK, and we’ve just started making everyone work from home where possible. I’m ~7 months into my first ever job, and this is ever so slightly hilarious. I’ve no idea how this is going to work, and am already preparing myself mentally to see all my workmates in dressing gowns when we have our Skype meetings.
Hi everyone. Raphael here. Now in Belgium.
Learn so much in frontend dev and microservices at FCC.
It is great to have such resources. Thanks QL.
Interested in DataViz and Semantic Web (guess this is less popular here).
My name is Nemo, I’m from Canada.
I have studied Python quite some time ago, when it passed to version 3.
In January, I read Creating Ionic Applications with StencilJS by Josh Morony and discovered progressive web applications, which made me realise that there was some knowledge I lacked.
I searched for a resource and discovered freeCodeCamp around a month ago. It would have saved me so much time have I had found it before!
Excellent resource, thanks a lot.
I don’t have a specific project in mind as it is, but I would hope to publish a small game before the end of the year in order to test my pipeline.
I will probably have more time to spare in the following weeks, so I expect that I will be able to achieve my goal.
