Hello, my name is Victoria.
I love math, and solving logical puzzles and problems, which is why I decided to study programming and programming languages. Some things I learned in college, some on my own, and so far I’m really enjoying freeCodeCamp and it has been the best way to learn. :slight_smile:

Hello,
I am Frank from Cleveland. I’ve been told that there are a lot of “Franks” in Cleveland.

I am learning to code because it is a great skill to obtain. Clearly, it is usable, and it simply makes me a more learned person. Coding has always seemed mystifyingly difficult. What I’m learning is that though it can be difficult (and possibly frustrating at times), it isn’t mystifiying. And the more I learn, the more I see how it can be applied, and the more I see how this is a valuable skillset.

I’ve been learning to code with freecodecamp, and I’m at the beginnings of this journey. Looking forward to progressing.

Thank you,
Frank

Hello, my name is Nizar. I’m from indonesia. I’ve been coding since I took Computer Science degree 3 years ago. Currently I work as game programmer in a Game Development Company in Indonesia. I’ve been interested in web programming since I wrote my first javascript game. Javascript really interests me because of it’s huge popularity and community. In the future, I really want to make my own online web browser game. and hopefully by taking this CodeCamp, it will boost my web development skill.

Thank you freecodecamp to make all of this free. :blush:

Who You Are

Hi! My name is Jeremy Bauer. I’m an Instructional Designer at a midwestern university. Mainly, I build online courses for arts classes, but I also teach faculty how to use tech in their instruction.

Why You’re Learning to Code

I’m learning to code for a few reasons:

  1. Work: I use a little HTML everyday at work and would like to know more about it. We also use CSS to style our courses, and I’ve been feeling our CSS is in need of an update, so I’m trying to learn that too. It hasn’t been updated in about five years, and there’s no one in my department that knows CSS, so it’s up to me! (The person who created the CSS retired four years ago.
  2. Personal: I’ve always wanted to learn code, but have felt that it was too beyond me. In college I wanted to take a Computer Science course or two, but was afraid that I wasn’t good enough with computers already. I thought you had to be pretty good at computers to take any Computer Science courses. I didn’t have much computer access until college. I realize now that this was silly, though. I’d also tried to learn here and there, but couldn’t keep my focus. A year ago, as an adult, I found out I have ADHD, which I’m sure didn’t help my ability to focus on learning code.
  3. The Future: Now that I’ve learned some HTML and CSS, I’m hoping to see where it can take me, whether it’s my current career path/field or a different one. I have one main project idea that I’ve started planning that I plan to use to get some good practice in for HTML and CSS, and possibly Javascript too.

How You’ve Been Learning to Code So Far

  • Free courses from Udacity, Code Academy, and Kadenze. It’s been helpful to go through the basic HTML and CSS courses from different places. Everyone has a different way of explaining and demonstrating the same thing, and for some reason, it’s taking all the different perspectives for the knowledge to finally sink in.
  • Experimenting in the online courses I build.
  • Looking at the HTML and CSS of other websites using “Inspect Element” in my browser and also the Chrome extension “CSS Peeper.”

My name is Jacob McLeod, and I’m a mechanical engineer living in the greater Denver area.

I’m learning to code for a couple reasons. I’m interested in adding a new skill to my set, keeping my mind sharp while I’m unemployed, getting on pace with the technology that’s shaping the world, and possibly setting myself up for a new career path that lets me travel more.

So far, all I’ve been doing is the HTML5 tutorials on FreeCodeCamp. I’m almost entirely new to coding, so this seems like a good way to learn.
