Hello everyone, I'm Diego Garcia. I live in Colombia. I am a full stack developer and I really love JavaScript. Currently I use React.js and Node.js in my projects and I'm enjoying that so much.
I hope to have a good time here learning and maybe working together.

See you,

Hahah sounds good! I tried my hand at JavaScript with things like Grasshopper and a few hours put into a Udemy course that covered some JavaScript. I'll let you know if I get stumped

Hey! I'm Corey and I joined in hoped of learning more about web development and design! I wanted to be apart of a community with like minded people who I could bounce ideas off of and grow with! I'm currently practicing my HTML and CSS before I move on to JavaScript. I'd like to get a good handle on these two languages before moving on. Can't wait to get to know some of you! Happy coding!

Hey Corey, welcome! I joined this community a few days ago. I'm also studying HTML and CSS at the moment. It's hard to know when it's "enough knowledge" to move on to JS.

CoreyLianez

You know I've struggled with this as well. I'm doing freecodecamp and I'm making sure I take my time on the projects at the end of the Responsive Web Design course (HTML and CSS). I've learned so far in life and other things there's sometimes a point you just make the decision to move on to the next thing. The way I see it is coding is like a never ending open book test hahaha. Some take longer some move quicker, but you all have the same resources available and the answers are always there for reference. Hope that helps Karen ☺️ Happy Coding!

Great advice. You're absolutely right. What have you thought for JS?

Thread Thread

CoreyLianez

Karen, I've mainly been using Freecodecamp and just following their curriculum. I've really enjoyed it so far. I also use SoloLearn on my phone so when I'm out and about and have some time to kill a do a few things on there. Like it's been a bit since I've gone through HTML. I use it in projects of course but I like to use the SoloLearn app as a refresher when on the go. It has JS as well. I'm more of a give me the curriculum and I'll follow it, but then I'll explore more during projects. 😆

Karen Poveda L.

You know, lately I've seen a lot of people mentioning free code camp, so I'm actually gonna check it out. Just like you I prefer to have the curriculum to follow and know where I'm going and then expand and learn more things as a practice on a project

I'd love to know what those are! Can't afford courses so I'm looking for free material hehe. Any recommendation to begin with JS?

Thread Thread

CoreyLianez

So just Google freecodecamp all as one word. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post links so find freecodecamp with .org. it should be like the first result. I haven't started their JS course yet, I'll probably mess with it tonight. Give that a try!

Thread Thread

Karen Poveda L.

Oh that's great! Let me know what you think. I expect to begin with JS next week. After I finish a review that I'm doing of some CSS topics. It'd be great to have someone doing it at the same time. Is that something that would interest you?

Karen Poveda L.

I looked through several resources and made a list of the most important topics for CSS. Then I started reviewing each one with enough info that I am able to apply the concept. However, with CSS I learnt more by doing a project and searching the things I didn't know as a was doing it.

Hello everyone, I am Jason Coleman. I live in New York, and am working on learning full-stack development, with this I would like to run my own freelance web development company remotely. I have been working on or in computers since I was 7 years old and have had some programing experience in college. I used to do web design, on the side of my main career and want to utilize those skills in development.

I used to work in coffee and was a head roaster for a know coffee brand in NYC but covid claimed my job. I have always been interested in working in web design, development, and Ui/UX design. I have worked on programing mods for video games but that was mainly only scratching the surface! I am not sure what language that was, I assume it was C++ but it could have been C#.

I am here to learn and alter my career permanently!

Hi there!

I’m Anthony, but people call me either Max or Ant, I’m not precious about it! I’m writing this on March 2nd 2021 and in a few short months I will be 40 years old. So, I wont lie, the idea of turning 40 terrifies me, and also pisses me off, because of the ongoing covid-19 pandemic, I will probably end up having a low-key birthday. Never mind. I currently work as Bid and Framework Manager at ANS Group, in Manchester. A fantastic place to work and I’m very happy there, and every evening once I’ve closed my work laptop, I boot up Linux and learn to code.

So it’s 2021 and I’m turning 40 and for the last few years there are a few things I wanted to do, the first was meditate, so I meditate several times a week to calm my already busy mind, and the second thing was that I wanted to learn to code, so I have taken on the challenge and about 4 weeks ago I enrolled in The Odin Project and have started learning full stack web development! The Odin project is great, because it doesn’t try and reinvent the wheel, and if another online resource is already doing a good job of teaching a subject, Odin will say ‘go over here and do these lessons, come back when you’re done’ and so I’ve been doing activities and challenges through freeCodeCamp and using YouTube.

I am an old school learner, what gamers may call a “boomer” and that’s fine – so I’m also cementing my understanding with a few courses through Udemy thanks to Traversy Media. Brad there is an incredible teacher, so armed with my trusty parker pen I’ve been taking notes and then putting my learning into practice and I think the basics are now sinking in.

I also have keen interest in Machine Learning, I think it's fascinating, but I need to learn to walk before I can run!

Hello, I'm Chris, from Colorado, USA. I've had a 20+ year "tech-adjacent" career. I always worked with developers, as a business analyst, tech support specialist, software tester, QA analyst, and for the past 10 years as an instructional designer/e-learning developer. I always wanted to be a programmer, but never quite became one.

I had several false starts where I took classes and/or followed books and tutorials with a mind toward becoming a developer every few years: first with C++, then with .Net, then ASP, then PHP, then Python/Django, then Java, now Node.js.

I'd always get far enough to learn the rudiments and build some basic things, but before I got to the point of thinking I could do it for a living, life would get in the way, I'd get busy with other things, and just never get back to it.

So, who knows, maybe that will happen again, but for now I'm looking to get a second career as a full-stack developer using Node.js.
