Is this the newbie thread?

I’m diving into all coding and tech but starting with front-end web before moving full stack and then beyond.

I’ve been repeating the basics from lots of tutorials spread around the web, sometimes helpful but frustratingly limited.

Hello everyone!

Hi… :slight_smile:

I am Neso from Serbia, I have no experience with coding or programming(if we don’t count playing video games :smile: )

I hope that I will learn something new and in future use that knowledge to make living of that…

Sup!

I’m a 38 year old ESL teacher in Taipei, Taiwan. I love my job but teaching is bittersweet and more often than not, a thankless job when teaching children. I long for a day when I can just work from my laptop and be free to roam around this planet, seeing and doing amazing things whilst making a good income online.

I’ve had limited experiences wth coding. I’m a bit into freeCodeCamp, but am also taking an edX course from Harvard, teaching intro Computer Science. It’s a work in progress to say the least. I hope to find out if I’ve got any talent as a coder. Take care and good luck to all.

Hello everyone, I’m Felix Lucas from Venezuela. 22 years old.

I’m currently living in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and I have some experience in web development. I’m the developer of 2 web pages until now.

All what I have learned so far comes from Internet resources and books, and I decided to give a try to this promising program.

Also, I’m looking for get involved in new projects, just for the experience and knowing new people. Anything, you can get in touch with me. I may not have the best english grammar but we gonna be able to communicate pretty good.

Best for you all. Have a nice week.

Hello all!
I am a computer science student at Empire State College, I was intrigued by freeCodeCamp after I learned a bit about what kind of credentials you finish up this coding camp with. I am in my late 30s and after almost 20 years in retail supporting a music career, I have decided to try to get a job in tech as opposed to retail.

What I hope freeCodeCamp can offer is a substantial contribution to my portfolio,

At my college I have already learned a few programming languages so I hope I can be of assistance with what I already know, while I gaining more practical knowledge here and hope to create a resume that will help me start a new career.

I look forward to communicating with all of you in the future!

Hi all,

I’m Thibault, I live in New York.

I worked in the recruitment industry for a few years, including tech recruitment. It’s… tiring and not a particularly interesting field, so I am picking up web development to hopefully effect a career change in the near future.

Cheers,
Thibault

Hello everyone.

I am Jon, I live in Phoenix, AZ.

I am here at Free Code Camp to brush up on what I thought was forgotten skills. After being out of the development game for a while, but not out of the tech world (I am currently a Systems Analyst) I am looking to revive a skill that I enjoyed in the past writing code.

Thanks. Jon.

Hello guys !

I am Annas, a 20 year-old french student living near Paris. I am also working as a web developer in apprenticeship.
I want to gather more skill in development to… be a better developer I guess ? I am highly interested in IT, and love learning new stuff.
So far, I have been learning code on the french platform “OpenClassrooms”, and at school.

I am also interested in open source development, which I never really contributed to (I opened one issue… Does that count ?) but I look forward to doing so in the future.

I think that pretty much sums it up. I am very happy to be here and my experience with FCC is really nice so far.

Thanks, and see you !

Hi.

I’m Basil, a temporary dropout UI/UX Designer and Front-End Developer who often freelances and works at a small local tech startup.

I’d been obsessed with computers as a kid though that obsession eventually branched out towards video games more so than coding itself, but I found myself dabbling with Python and Ruby time and time again until I went for Bachelors in Computer Science last year where I had the opportunity to learn and teach as a hobby.

Though I had to drop out for certain reasons, I’ve decided development to be my main source of bread and butter so here I am! Polishing my existing skills from whatever place I can find and building my portfolio. I started off with Python and Ruby on Codecademy some years back and settled down with C++ for a short while which honestly helped me understand OOP really well. I now mainly develop/am trying to develop in JavaScript and Python, and since I design websites and freelance as a designer, too, I’m trying to learn front-end better so I can create my own themes and templates to sell.

All for the money haha.
