Hi y'all I'm a new dev from Lexington, KY who's currently trying to get the hang of vanilla JS before moving on to frameworks. I'm feeling pretty competent with HTML and CSS. recently I've just been hacking together little JS projects trying to learn more. Recently made a random CSS gradient generator (read about it on my profile) and I also made a little score keeper app, and am trying to get a number guessing game working but running into issues. Hope you're all well!

I knew about this community just few minutes ago when surfing through the net about cybersecurity and hacking.

Hello everyone,
My name is Anais and I'm from France.
I'm here after seeing a YouTube video to help me stay motivated. I am a beginner in coding but not a failure ahah.
Currently I'm taking the Cs50 course (introduction to computer science) because I don't have a scientific background.

I work full time in a job that is killing me. I would like to be able to create things, to think and find solutions but above all to always learn something new.

My long term goal is to be able to manage my work periods freely.
