Welcome to freeCodeCamp's forum

Hello All! My name is George. I initially became interested in computer programming decades ago. While in middle school I learned BASIC and became pretty proficient in it, even winning a few programming contests. For some reason, I lost interest and pretty much dropped all things tech for several years. After careers in the military and in education, 5 years ago, I started a small remodeling company. I enjoy the work, but it got to be too physically demanding, so I shut it down a couple of months ago.
I then decided to get back into the technosphere, and I just founded a tech company. Having only a great idea and next to no current coding skills, I brought on a couple great software engineers and we are in the process of completing our app prototype.
I am here on FCC to learn as much as I can about the coding process and software development in general so I can have a better understanding of the concepts and processes involved in software development. I hope to be able to earn all of the certifications. In addition to FCC, I am also taking computer science courses on EdX.
All the duties and responsibilities of running a start-up keep me super busy, but I have set a goal to work on coding a minimum of 2 hours per day. Hopefully through FCC, I can meet some great people along the way. Cheers!

Hello, everyone. I’m from beautiful Switzerland and an apprentice at the time of speaking.
I’m learning to code as part of my job and because it interests me. So far I have been learning everything I know by myself. I also used lots of online tutorials and books.

Hello… how could I get a response to my project, if I can not include links into my messages?

edit: I can see now it is because of spam bots and only lasts for an hour or so.

I’m new here, and new to coding.
I used to be a dog trainer and kennel manager, before that I was a stable manager, and for various reasons I’m looking for a career change.

I’ve dabbled in html and css when I had my business website for the dog training, so I figured that was a good place to start. I also love that there are projects so I can build a portfolio. I tend to not be very good at coming up with project ideas on my own.

Hi there! My name is Luis Febro from Brazil.
I am learning code because I really like solving challenges. I am used to that since in my first internship which I developed some systems for a college but with macros in Excel. I am engaged in learning from front-end to back-end every single day. I discovered this website from a post of a blog about self-taught programmers. I am myself one of them. I have some experience from other programming websites. I am sure here I will find useful knowledge here, too. Especially the community support!

I am Diana.
Learning code to earn my living.
So far I am an intermediate programmer and learning is good. Thanks to freecodecamp and it’s teachers and staff.


I realised I never said hi here. So, Hi!

Or at least I think - too long to check :stuck_out_tongue:

So, I started on Khan Academy, much more hand holding then here - if you have difficulty grasping the basic concepts of JavaScript and html that could be a good place to check, but to learn intermediate and advanced material the hand holding stop and depending on where you want to go next you will need to go somewhere else - like FreeCodeCamp

I have been learning to code in my spare time during my university career, I am studying chemistry, eventually I want to continue with data science on the side, and keep also doing silly things like a rainbow rain simulator.


Hello! im happy being with this forum today.


hi there! how are you guys…


why cant I put my link here?


Hey everyone I’m Stephen and Im learning to code because I wanna make games. I’ve already released 1 game called Space Blitz’d with Gamemaker studio and about to release my first mobile app with unity. I came here to learn html, css, and Java script. So far everything is going great and I’m proud to announce that after only completing the introduction section and watching fcc html video, I scored a 85% on W3Schools Quiz after 1 try. I know I can do better. I really like this site and proud to be a donor! Thank you FCC


i want to eplore coding skills


Hey welcome! There is a new policy that new users can’t post links on the forum yet. As you make more posts and get involved with the forum more, you will be able to post links soon.


Hi guys, I’m Leo and I’m Italian (I’m living in Barcelona).
I’d like to be more active on this forum to be part of this comunity. I started to learn web development 8 months ago but I’m a slowly learner.
I’m learning coding because seems interesting and challenging, I find smart understand how what we use on a daily basis works.
I’m open to know new people and learn from erveryone.
See you around guys!


I am a 36 year old man who first learned that I enjoy programming in College circa 2000 when part of my Electronics Engineering Technician course included a Introduction to C programming class which I fell in love with. Since that time I had experimented with various languages such as Java, C++, C#, etc… this list goes on. While I was experimenting and learned a good deal of programming enough to pickup any language with ease I never built anything nore could I say I ever “learned” any of those languages as I was only fluent enough to do basic stuff.

I am learning to program Es6, node, Css, Javascript today because I have been approached by a few people who have asked if I build websites and as I begun to experiment I learned how enjoyable it is.

So far I have been learning to code by doing the challenges as part of FCC’s
Javascript Algorithms And Data Structures Certification (300 hours)
which in the beginning was very boring as I am past the beginner phase, as I’ve progressed to the intermediate scripting I am finding the course very fun and challenging. Other ways that I am learning web development is through Wes Bos’s courses on ES6 and node. For those who don’t know who he is or what he does, basically he is a Canadian web Developer, Entrepreneur and teacher who I admire. Anyway I am combining what I learn through Free Code Camp, with materials I’ve purchased.
