#CNC2022 Cohort 1 Welcome Thread

Hello and welcome to CodeNewbie Challenge 2022! We're so excited that you signed up for Cohort 1. Together, we're going to make some real progress towards your biggest goals.

One of the best parts of #CNC2022 is the built-in community support you'll get. In that spirit, let's get to know one another β€” you'll likely be relying on a number of the people you meet in your challenge's mission assignments anyway 😊

Drop a note in the thread below with the following info...

  • Your name
  • The challenge you signed up for
  • Your motivation for signing up for #CNC2022
  • Any social media profiles you'd like to share
  • Anything else we should know

P.S. We'd love to hear from you on Twitter! Let us know if you signed up for CodeNewbie Challenge 2022 (and the challenge you picked) by tagging us at @CodeNewbies and including the hashtag #CNC2022.

Sarah Bartley

Hi! I'm Sarah. I did CNC2018 Get a Job in winter 2018. This year I signed up for the Learn in Public challenge. I am always looking for ways to become a confident coder and I believe this challenge will help me dig deeper into tech concepts and share what I'm learning with other developers.

You can follow me here on Code Newbie or on DEV at dev.to/theoriginalbpc. I'm also very active on Twitter so follow me at @theoriginalbpc.

Although I'll be doing the Learn in Public challenge, I've written a few posts about the CNC2018 Get a Job challenge on DEV. I plan on launching my own YouTube channel this year and I plan on doing some videos on the Code Newbie Get a Job challenge in the future.

Hello everyone! My name is Julia and this time I will participate in the write more challenge. My last challenge get a job was a great success, so I'm looking forward to another challenge with CodeNewbie πŸ˜„.

For all get a job participants, I'd like to share my roadmap website about my own journey with useful resources and tips on how to best prepare for job applications and interviews.
For all the other participants, I am participating in this challenge to also write more about my previous steps on the path to becoming a self-taught developer so that I can add more content in these two sections as well. πŸ˜‡

Thanks to CodeNewbie for these great challenges that keep us participants motivated and reaching our goals.

See you guys soon, and have fun!

Hi fellow CodeNewbies!

I am Rahul Bansal, and I have signed up for Learn to Code.
My motivation is simple. While I have some basics through my university course, I have not been able to keep myself in the flow necessary to code regularly and practic. I am hoping that with this cohort based program, I would be able to do that.

My Twitter profile is @rbansal42. You'll mostly find me complaining to companies there, but hey, I plan to learn in public and publish more. So maybe, motivate me by following?

Also, here's my Linkedin

That said, looking forward to get involved in this beautiful community and learning!

Sania

Hi everyone,
I'm Sania and I signed up for the "Code more" challenge. I've been dabbling in code but never practiced consistently and didn't get to a level where I can actually build stuff. So this year I want to make coding a habit and build web apps and dashboards with Python (I would also love to learn JavaScript and later C# so I can build games in Unity, but since I tend to get carried away with trying to do too many things at once, I'm forcing myself to just focus on one language at a time!).

On a side note, I work in a fintech startup (in a non-tech role) and am also a career coach. So if you'd like any help with applying for jobs or just have some questions about working in startups, I'd be happy to have a chat!

You can hit me up on Twitter @sakuda2046 or LinkedIn (linkedin.com/in/kudaibergen/)

Happy coding!

I also started writing blog posts on Hashnode for other early career developers/individuals who are primarily self-taught (...and eventually plan on crossposting on dev.to). I love growing, learning, and building in public, and ultimately want to bring up everyone with me 😀
