Hello everyone!

I've been working as a chemical engineer since 2013 and now planning and preparing for the transition to web development career!

I have some experience with web stack (JS, HTML, CSS, Node, MySQL, MongoDB), and know some Python, Ruby, Smalltalk, PHP, Java. I am a GNU/Linux user all the way for 15 years!

I plan to master first at React and front-end technologies, after that I will deep dive into back-end and work with Golang and Java, and in the end, software development in general terms.

I also plan to make use of my previous chemical engineering industrial domain knowledge into something with programming, ML and data-related areas.

Hope to share with you anything I gain!

Best luck!

For the record, here's our CodeLand 2022 org:

Speaking of... maybe you'd like to come join us for the CodeLand 2022 conference happening virtually on Jun 16th & 17th. Tickets are free! Hope to see ya there!!

KeyRat here... Played around with coding during high school, but now I am completing some code camps. I am also pursuing a BS in Computer Science at the University of Florida. I find that numbers are the only people that I can consistently rely on.

I find that numbers are the only people that I can consistently rely on.

This sounds super poetic to me, haha. My wife is a veterinarian and says something similar about animals, haha. Something like:

Animals are the only people I can truly understand.

Ohhh people... we still got some evolving to do. πŸ˜…

Anyway, I hope ya enjoy being part of this community and that you find the material here helpful!

Hi everyone! I'm Erin, a former high school teacher from the Dallas, TX area and (hopeful) full-stack engineer! I'm almost done with my online bootcamp, so I'm definitely still learning, but so far I know Python, HTML, CSS (+SCSS & Bootstrap), JavaScript, React, Node.js, Express, and C. Really excited to attend Codeland and learn more!

Hi everyone πŸ˜ƒ πŸ‘‹πŸΌ

I'm a webdev newbie loving all the learning, making and sharing. I'm a bit older (37) and work in proofreading 4 days a week, so am doing the self-directed study thing though SheCodes (and Twitter lol) on my day off (+ weekends + mornings + nights ... you know the drill 🀣).

Sometimes I can feel a little silly/alone putting all this time into something I can't really explain to the non-tech people around me, with no guarantee of a career ... so I'd really love to connect with other coding beginners like y'all in this community to encourage each other to keep learning (sometimes a little πŸ“£ πŸ’ͺ🏻 πŸŽ‰ is so needed!) and share in each others’ journeys.

If this sounds like you, chuck your Twitter handle below so I can follow you! (mine is @katfay_) πŸ’•

P.S. I'm a big fan of the podcast and still working out how to use this CodeNewbie community ... feel like I'm doing it all wrong?! πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ Any tips appreciated πŸ™πŸ»

I got into coding through statistical scripting language R which I use to analyse the optical signal I get from my cells. I would like to transition from laboratory work in academia to data science/image analysis in industry.
Currently learning how to make interactive web apps using the Shiny package in R.
Looking forward to experience the community.
