I'm Alex. Currently working in Conservation and Animal Husbandry but looking to make a switch to Front End and Full Stack Web Dev. I've been taking Codecademy, Scrimba, ZTM and a variety of other learning paths to develop a base of skills.

I hope this challenge will help direct my energy into networking and finding a job (or at least narrowing down the pool of jobs I'd like ot apply to).

Hey everyone! I'm Tim, a career changing developer (from woodworker/chef). I recently finished The Odin Project Ruby on Rails path and my main strengths in Javascript + React, Ruby + Rails, HTML, and CSS.

I started applying for fullstack / frontend positions at the start of the new year, and, from this Cohort 1 challenge, hope to gain new perspectives on the job search process and get better at networking.

I think my ideal job title is somewhere between Frontend Developer and Software Developer.
