Working on The Odin Project today, what about you all?

For my peeps learning web development and the web dev stack, what are you using to learn? I love The Odin Project so far, it has me working on FreeCodeCamp right now, it's super fun juxtaposition compared to my normal curriculum of studying computer science at a university.

tagging my friend @fajarsiddiq to see what he's doing to learn some web dev!

Hey Bryce, good luck and have fun! I'm working through App Academy Open right now (started about a week ago). I've dabbled with TOP and it's a pretty fun setup. Are you doing the fCC JavaScript course?

Kind of, it’s the FCC responsive web design course, which includes js basics as far as I’m aware. What made you do the app academy?

I like the video lessons that accompany each section, plus coding in Ruby has been a fun experience. Also, the fact that it's their actual curriculum for the entire bootcamp adds some weight behind their site. But mainly it's the video courses and Ruby.

Very nice! Yeah I’m currently in an Associates in Applied Science degree for programming. But I’m looking forward to doing some freecodecamp over summer break!

I have been having a really fun time, I try to sneak in at least 1 "progress" related thing every single day. I am a full time college student with a job, so this "side-learning" thing comes slowly. I am a bit of a different type of "Code-Newbie" as I'm new to front end but I have been doing backend for 3 years now.

Hey I hear that! Full time job and married with 2 kids πŸ˜‚. I’m new to all of coding. At times I find that I feel like a rockstar. And other times I feel like a lost puppy!
