Hey fellow nerds. I like supporting FCC and I like showing my FCC pride, but I’ve run out of places to put stickers. I’ve also seen some campers say that the currency conversion for where they live makes $10 USD very expensive.
I’ve decided to occasionally send stickers to some of my non-American camper friends.
Please share a bit about your experience here in the thread:
What is your Free Code Camp story? Why do you love Free Code Camp?
Share a link to your favorite project and tell us why you are proud of it.
Where do you live? What can $10 USD buy there? What’s it like for you being in our international (but largely American) community?
You have to be willing to share your mailing address with me (privately, of course) so I can send your stickers.
*Edit: the price of stickers is now $10 USD for 4.
That’s freaking adorable!
Very nice and generous Ariel Leslie, great idea. I live in Iowa so I can’t afford $5, but I will pay $4.99
Hi @ArielLeslie im Blagoje from Serbia. Serbia is a small country on south east Europe(part of ex-Yugoslavia). I started my journey on FCC 2 weeks ago. Main reason is to get qualified for interahips here. I love FCC because of it helped me to understand fundamentals of JS.
For 5 dollars here you culd buy 10 literes of milk or 20kg of apples. You could buy 3 packs of cigarettes. Average sallary (per month) is 280$.
I paid the $5 I’m in the UK. two weeks later and my laptop is feeling sad and a bit exposed where a sticker should be. Can you help me to cover up its embarrassment ?
I’m guessing that’s just the slowness of international mail. I’m not affiliated with sticker logistics, just offering to buy someone a present.
I never joke about sticker logistics.
Stickers received and now adorning my Laptop… Tip for others in the UK… Allow 2 weeks+ for sending and postage to the UK
Blimey … you’ve made me want some stickers now, and I felt I didn’t need any stickers. Dam you… I’m just going to have to order some
Thank you for your kind gesture but I’m happy to pay myself. As you say, $5 in a lot of countries can easily buy a large family a hearty meal. In the UK your not going to get much change out of a $5 for anything. Example: two big packets of crisps (chips US stateside!), no change. You might even owe the checkout lady/man some money!
My experience here in FCC is not too much, I joined two weeks ago. So far this has been great, I’m finally understanding CSS and start learning some JS. Can’t wait to reach the point where we work in a project
I live in Mexico, and $10 USD are like $200 MXN, You can buy around 16lts of milk, or 14lts of gas.
I am a Computer Science graduate and learned about Free Code Camp from my friend. To be honest, The learning experience that I get from this website is way better than my college’s. As my college’s lectures are generally monotonous, boring, impracticable and outdated.
I have recently made this Weather app and I love it because of the design and the color pallets that I have used.
Lastly, I am from India and 10$ is really a very big sum here. Most of the engineers who have joined the software industry works for 10-12$/day. Other than that, You can enjoy a meal at a good restaurant for 10$. When I was in my school my fees was around 10-15 $/month.
