And I'm the founder of freeCodeCamp Group on my region, what I have been doing?

I write this post just to make known the community I created in my region, and the one that I have been actively growing since February this year, and we have about 1300 members: freeCodeCamp Lisbon. All these people know a bit of programming, know or work in the area, or they want to change their careers and they want to know more about programming. And I share with you: Create communities, learn to share so then we can make a better world.
In my country for example, when it comes to the work of programmers, there is a lot of "job security", and then there are not many. But I want to change that paradigm and that's why I decided to bet.
It isn't an obvious paid job, but rewarding and very enriching. I was afraid to express the way I explain to people about programming, I was afraid to talk to people, I finally feared that I wanted to deal with them.
Until that type of fears evolves, and now they are qualities that I have. And of course, every day I am improving and have more visibility in the programming community of my Country. It has defects, but we have to improve;)
So I ask you to take a look at what we have built, with campers who knew nothing or did not know how to work as a team in this world, and who did not know how to use the GIT at all. and we worked hard for it. www.freecodecamplisbon.org
In this community, we created the meetups, where we took questions about the curriculum of freeCodeCamp itself, created several challenges to learn more together (which are challenges/games where we all learn and have fun with it) we create workshops and talks on various topics. We want to extend to make more types of events, such as hackathons. From time to time we sell t-shirts to people at freeCodeCamp Lisbon. And people like it! :)
Many thanks to all of you ;)
