#CNC2021 "Start Coding" Mission 2 Submission Thread

After completing all the steps in your Mission 2 email, post in the thread belowΒ about the language or frameworkΒ you've decided to learn and tell us why you picked it. Now, find one or twoΒ other people who've picked the same language or framework and introduce yourself and share a thing or two about your coding journey so far. Keep in touch with these people and follow them on CodeNewbie CommunityΒ β€” you might reach out to them for help in the near future!

Reminder: No need to drop a link to your worksheet! That's for your personal use only. Instead, please respond to the homework prompt directly in the comments.

Congrats on challenging yourself to Start Coding! If you have any questions about the challenge overall, head to the Start Coding Help Thread. For any technical questions throughout the challenge (or in general!) write a #help post and share with the community!

I have decided to learn python and mainly focus on the Django Framework. I have a basic knowledge of some of Python concepts and i believe the applications of the language are world changing, from Machine learning to AI, naming a few.

Hey Mucheru, that is exactly what I have decided too. I know a little Python just from some personal study, and I think it is the most versatile language for the type of projects I can see myself getting involved with. I have never used the Django Framework, so will be trying to learn about that too. Good luck!

I love how versatile and cross platform it is.

My interest is in frontend web development. I already have good knowledge of HTML, basic knowledge of CSS, and have used Bootstrap before. First, I want to learn more CSS, including Flexbox, CSS Grid, and Sass. I may also take another, deeper look at Bootstrap. With a good foundation in HTML and CSS, I then want to move on to learning JavaScript as my primary programming language and eventually learn React as a frontend framework.

If you want to #startcoding with HTML and CSS, too, either as a total beginner or more advanced, let's connect!

I have decided to learn #Java because last year(2020) around August I decided to pick coding as hobby , I found a book called introduction to java and taught myself some basics stuff and i am still half way through. Now I feel like pursing it as a career or maybe just having some practical skills . My area of interests are mobile app developing , front end web development and software engineering. I am still not sure which framework to go with but I am open for suggestions and guidance from the community . Thank you

Hey Dis_Connected how's it going since your post. I'm sure you've made additional progress. I fell in love with Java a few years back but never really pursued it. In between jobs this year and decided to pick it up again, and now I'm obsessed. I've been readmitted to college and pursing a second BA in IT. I am currently working on eds2go, codegym, jetbrain academy, and several books. I am trying to stay positive and motivated even though some days are more difficult than others. I have a lot of doubts but right now my motivation keeps me going. I love it when I am able to actually solve a problem without having to "google" it or go back to the lesson.. That's what actually keeps me going. Godspeed....

Hey Ron , I have a made a little progress. Finding balance between work , family and coding hasn't been easy. Some days i feel like giving up because there is a lot of staff I still have to learn. I enjoy solving problems from the book that I am using , but sometimes I can't find the strength to attempt a problem . This has been a tough journey for me, I love coding and I have a passion for it ..........

Which platform/field would you like to work in?
I want to work in [web/mobile/enterprise/game] development _________________________________________.

I want to work in web or enterprise developement
What do you want to build first?
I want to build a [website or web app], [mobile app]

12 months?
I will finnish whatever school work i get, but also I want to build my own app for my crafting hobby

My priority with learning to code is...
Having fun? Building websites quickly? Having a widely used/practical skill? Writing efficient code?

My priority is to learn practical skill, and as clean code as possible

Do you know CSS and/or HTML?
If not, that’s totally fine! If you don’t know CSS or HTML, these are good starting points.

I do know them both

Do you like to be more self-sufficient when learning things or completing projects? Or do you like to work in groups?
Jot down your thoughts on your learning style here. Certain frameworks/languages have active communities with lots of resources while others require a bit more independence.

Both, sometimes it has been hard to trying to do remotely courses in a school i never been physically in, and without seeing other coursemates and teacher.

I have been learning coding basics (HTML & CSS) via freecodecamp.org (and others). I plan on focusing on JavaScript (since it's next in the FCC curriculum). And since I'm thinking of focusing on back-end or enterprise development, I'm also looking at Node.js once I have a decent grasp of JavaScript.
Let me know if you're in a similar place in your #startcoding journey as well.

I picked Java. I guess I picked it since it was my first experience with a language in college and loved it. I guess the feeling of creating something and having it actually work was a great feeling. Also, I am very persistent. I can work on something for hours and even days until I come to a solution.
