Hey there!
I’m Javi, a Spanish guy living in the UK.

I did a degree in media and graphic design and while I quite like the latter, web development always appealed to me as well.

So last year I started reading programming books that taught me a lot (mainly front-end).

I have been a camper for two days now, I want to keep learning and I think this is a good platform to do so. Also the whole portfolio initiative is essential in this industry!

Looking forward to meeting fellow campers!
Regards.

Hi! My name is Laura and I’m a languages teacher who decided to get to learn how to code. I wanted to go back to school and make part of an ongoing learning community and I think the web and coding provides just that. I’m finishing a short certificate (16 months) on multimedia/web programming production. I’ve recently started the Free Code Camp program to reinforce and consolidate the topics I was introduced to in my certificate. I’d like to be good in javascript and construct web/mobile apps.

Hi everyone! I’m Katie. I’ve been doing front-end development since October of last year. I completed a ten week front-end bootcamp in downtown Detroit at a great tech teaching place called Grand Circus. We really dove into JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. We touched upon many others like AJAX, JSON, AngularJS, Gulp, Grunt, Sass, and learned to navigate through the basics of Git and GitHub. Since graduating I haven’t had as much motivation to create websites as I thought I would so I’m jumping into freecodecamp to keep my skills sharp and continue to strengthen them!

Hello everyone!
I am Mateusz, currently stationing in UK near Cambridge.
I’m an electroengeneer that loves games, pen and paper RPGs, fantasy, science fiction, anime and everything associated with those genres. Recently I acquired a new fascination, it is called programming.

I started learning programming in order to create games after my boring work. But then something clicked and here I am trying to change my hobby into a job.

I am able to write simple programs with C# or build websites with HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Recently I learned how to program using Node.js but after long unsuccessful campaign for programming and web development jobs I decided to give this CodeCamp a try.

Right now it is a nice solidifying of my knowledge.

Cheers! Stay smiling :slight_smile:

My name is Steve, sometimes I like Esteebae.

I’m learning to code becuase I enjoy it, thouroughly… and there is a lot of future career oppurtunity available. Why not make a career out of something I enjoy?

I’ve been learning to code through HTMLDog, but I came here because I find the lessons/challenges to be super helpful and constructive.

Hi everyone! I am Duy Nguyen. I am pursuing a Bachelor of Computer Engineering degree at University of Texas at Arlington. I learn to code to prepare for my future career. In addition, I want to make a little money by creating some websites through a freelancer website while learning to code. I have just started to code for about 4-5months. I hope that I can achieve my dreams and be able to learn as many computer languages as I can, create some new creative things that can be helpful for our lives.

Hi, my name is Tony.

I’m in college right now as a Computer Science & Engineering major. I’m learning code here on freeCodeCamp because I would like a change of pace and work on my own stuff while learning new things. Also, I like doing more fun things than the typical college curriculum which is a bunch of boring code and algorithms that many front-end developers don’t want to do (like me).

I’ve been coding for 4 years now, started in high school with simple HTML and CSS, then moving on to college (3rd year).

Hi everyone! I’m Juan Salvatore, I’m learning code because I would love to work programming at a startup. I’studied the first two yars of CS at university, but it was all math and I got really bored and lost the motivation. I did CS50, harvard’s free CS course, and now I’m planning to learn full stack here at FreeCodeCamp, while I major in audiovisual design :slight_smile:

I’m a 31-year-old administrative assistant who just gave her two-weeks’ notice. I hold a BA in German Studies with a Music minor, and this job just wasn’t for me. There are few German-related opportunities in my area of the country.

I’m learning to code so that I can become a web developer and earn more, live anywhere, and work at a company that respects me and treats me well. I’m learning to code so I can renew my self-respect and use my intelligence to create value for nonprofits and businesses that make a difference in the world.

I’ve been learning to code by attending local classes, hack-a-thons and meetups by Girl Develop It, Free Code Camp, and The Iron Yard. I’m deciding whether to attend a paid code camp as well.

Hello!

I’m Alex and I’m learning to code for a career change but also because it’s fun. I am a complete newbie but hopefully in a couple of months I will have learned many things. I’ve only been coding for about a month now. Hope everyone else learns a lot from this as well!

Hello! My name is Julian! I am 22 years old. I just graduated from UHWO (University of Hawaii at West Oahu) with my degree in Economics. I just sent in my application for the Navy for Officer Candidate School. I probably will not hear back until April; and if I get accepted, I will not leave until the end of year! During that time, I want to learn as much as I can about coding, while still enjoying all of the great things to do on this island. I want to learn this because it is clearly a meaningful and evolutionary skill! I am certain that learning it will only help me in my life. I have just been learning through code camp so far. I think the site is so resourceful and brilliant. Thank you!
