Another first timer. Looking forward to everything, but "Accessibility is not a mystery" jumped out as a particularly strong title.

πŸ‘‹πŸΌ Chris, I'm a first timer too and not really sure what to expect ... looking forward to it and hoping to connect with other learners to encourage each other πŸ˜ƒ Would love to follow you on Twitter, I'm @katfay_ Accessibility is such an important topic. I think the last few years has shown us that if tech is not designed with diverse needs in mind from the start - it can be a life damaging/threatening (just thinking of how apps and comms were not initially tailored older or culturally diverse audiences who needed them here in Melbourne, Aus, during the pandemic).

As someone new to coding and learning HTML, CSS, & JavaScript to design more engaging & inclusive online courses, β€œAccessibility in Design” and β€œTeaching through Code Reviews” are the two webinars that pique my interest.

They sound like interesting choices Christine and I can relate to being new at HTML, CSS & JavaScript. What kind of courses are you designing?

I aspire to create courses for educators at a university or a EdTech company. So far, it’s been for K-12.

omg this is so exciting!

I am looking forward to all of them too.

But can I "cheat" and say the "talk" I'm most interested in is hearing from with newer coders and hearing their stories and their passion for coding. It is so exciting to me to hear folks' journeys into tech, what's on their minds, and what they are looking forward to.

Hey! :) I am most excited about the accessibility talks and listening to the stories of the speakers about their personal and professional journeys. I also would love to learn about inclusivity topics as they make me really curious. :)

Hello everyone! Thank you company for your help these last 3 weeks! Your advice given about communication with my girlfriend has tremendously helped, and we are doing so much better. I appreciate and I am thankful. I'm happy that online texting therapy will continue helping to others. Thanks so much! He has been nothing short of a miracle.

I was a code newbie back in 2015, went to a bootcamp and have been working as a programmer ever since! I'm looking forward to coming at this from the "other side" and feeling that positive energy and hope, again.

πŸ‘‹πŸΌ First timer here!
As a prenatal nurse I am really excited for the How I Tracked My Pregnancy with Python & Emojis. Sounds so interesting, I've never heard a patient do this. πŸ˜ƒ I only know the basics of Python but I'm excited to keep learning!
