Hello, I’m Josh. I own a technology consulting business, organize a tech/business meetup, and am completing a degree in entrepreneurship at NAU in Prescott, Arizona.
I have been teaching myself to code for the last few years with the power of google-fu. I am starting an organization that will provide technical training of different levels to members of my community. I am considering using the freeCodeCamp curriculum to help some of my students retrain so they can get better jobs.
What better way to understand the curriculum than to go through it all myself? I’m not too far in but I’m enjoying it and have learned a few things along the way. :grin:
Best of luck!

Hello all! I’m Jeremy. I’m 38 and from North Carolina. I have a good career as an aircraft mechanic and zero experience coding or programming. I have been itching to do something new and decided to dive into this and see if i can take my love of all things tech and turn it into a new career. I just completed the first section(HTML and CSS) and so far i have to say i’m having a blast figuring things out!

Hey everyone!

My name is Rulon. I’m learning to code (particularly website apps) so I can widen my professional skillset! Plus, I just like programming. I just graduated from my local land grant university, which is where most of my code instruction has taken place. Other than that, I’ve been coding my own Discord bot for my own nerdy, nerdy purposes.

Glad to be here!

What tech/business meet-up do you organize? A business partner of mine is moving up to Prescott in the coming months.

Hey, I’m learning JavaScript and jQuery at the moment and I wanted some exercises to expand my knowledge and test myself. I remembered going through this over a year ago so rejoined, starting from scratch. Hoping to use this as a support network and keep up to date and practice code.

Well hello,

I’m Chad from Washington state. I am learning to code with the intention of making a career change. I have always enjoyed tinkering with electronics and computers and I hope to make money while doing it, some day!

So far, I have taken a few Udemy courses, followed along with the Harvard CS50 course, worked my way through “Programming in C” by Stephen Kochan as a ‘foundational’ start and am now working my way through freeCodeCamp!

Hi everyone!

My name is Matthew and I am currently a Cybersecurity Consultant with Microsoft. Before that I was in the Air Force as a Cyberspace Warfare Operations airman. I am learning to code because I want the ability to build tools and applications that can be used by anyone. I love the idea that if you can dream it, you can build it! So far, I’ve had a lousy on-off relationship with learning to code. I’ve used resources like Safari Books, Udacity, freeCodeCamp, meet ups, and various other channels to learn what I have so far. I think the thing I struggle with is staying persistent long enough to start making some good strides towards becoming proficient with coding. I know that if I were to just do an hour a day everyday I could make great progress but I get super side tracked and I have the tendency to squirrel myself away to something else. I’m really hoping that this time round will be different and I know that it will take a lot of work, but in the end it’s worth it. I would like to eventually become a developer for Microsoft (they have full stack dev’s). I look forward to giving this another round (this is my 3rd so far).

Hello. My name is Hunter Turner and I am a High School student in Kansas.

I am learning to code because my school doesn’t have any computer science courses available and computer science has always fascinated me. I would like to find out if I enjoy coding before I get to college so that I will be better able to pick a major of something that I enjoy.

I have only been learning to code so far from the HTML and CSS section of FreeCodeCamp, but signed up for an online course of AP Computer Science A (JavaScript essentially).

Hi! I am Ajay from India.
I’ve been learning to code for various resources but I found free code camp to be the best one yet.
The reason I am learning to code is to be able to create things that only exist in my mind

Yo! My name is Raufun Nabi, and I am from Bangladesh.

I am a school student who took part in Microsoft’s Know It. Prove It. challenge. From there I learned HTML and CSS & JavaScript from the great instructor, Bob Tabor. From there on I decided to learn more about programming, coding and computer.

Note: There are some lessons in JavaScript that are outdated, especially lesson 17, but overall everything is fine.

Have a great day everyone!
Thank you!

Could you be more specific and include a link to lesson 17 and what information is outdated? If what you’re saying is true and the curriculum is outdated, it can be fixed in a future update.

In this page,

Installing and Utilizing jQuery Plugins

Some of the jQuery events are no longer usable.

Now I found out that some of the jQuery lessons are outdated.

Thank you!
