Hey, everybody!

Happy to be here. I'm teaching myself HTML and CSS thru FreeCodeCamp's Responsive Web Design course. My goal is to eventually learn JavaScript and React and work as a front-end web developer! Studying and teaching music has been my main pursuit up until now, so coding is way out of left-field for me, but I'm really enjoying it! I'm also interested in UX/UI design. Glad to have found this community!

I'm a classically trained pianist, but I love all kinds of styles--been digging into jazz a lot lately. I've also taught myself guitar, mandolin, a bit of violin, accordion, dulcimer, and enjoy jamming with friends with those instruments. I keep telling myself that if I can learn all those instruments on my own as a kid, I can teach myself to code now as an adult.

Wow, sounds like you're covering it all! 🙌 I soooo wish I had learned piano as a kid.

I keep telling myself that if I can learn all those instruments on my own as a kid, I can teach myself to code now as an adult.

Haha, true that! Self-learning for the win.

I also really love playing music. 😀

I'm primarily a guitarist/singer and so enjoy jamming with friends. I even have a super small-time band... we've only played one show (right before COVID, haha) but it was very fun and I hope to start back doing it soon! Over COVID, we kinda put things on pause.

However, I got super into synthesizers + drum machines and making music that stays in sync with it all using a Boss RC-500 loop pedal. It's been soooo much fun and has me testing out lots of different genres.

Anyway, hope you have a great time in this community and wish you the best as you begin your coding journey!

Hey everyone! I'm a brand new developer who has just begun a software engineering immersive. I'm also a startup founder who's worked with junior developers to launch a React Native app. I'm currently working with a no-code app through Bravo Studio & Xano, and planning to dive back into our existing code base after the immersive course.

Hi All, exciting to be a CodeNewbie. Found this through CodeLand 2022, which i received in a DEV newsletter. Feels good to be in a community where we are all in the same boat. Though i've dabbled with coding and studied it at college, i never really pursue it. But now i am building up the courage to take the leap. 😊

Hi everyone! Excited to be here! I am a student with the Break Into Tech Program thru Skillcrush! I found this community bc Codeland was shared on our Slack channel, but becoming part of CodeNewbie is a bonus in and of itself! Learning Responsive Design now, then pivoting into JS + React to front-end develop my way into tech! I am also interested in UX/Design, and want to learn Python so that I can make triggerable effects for my Dungeons and Dragons minis!

Hey all! I am a previous educator who found an interest in software engineering/front end development earlier this year. I took the SheCodes workshops and looking to learn even more. Currently starting the Odin Project.

Outside of coding, I’m an adventure junkie. I love traveling (just got back from a 17 day trip which I was able to explore 13 states!), fly-fishing, and biking.

Excited to connect with others in the field and share thoughts and ideas with one another. 😊🤙🏻

Hello everyone!

To be honest, I'm going to have to backtrack through my current rabbit hole to figure out how I navigated to this wonderful community. However, I can explain what made me join! I've been dabbling with small bits of code here and there for the last 15 years. I've just recently completed an accelerate program for Full-stack Web Development that my local community college just started up. Having accomplished that rather intense feat, I'm trying to find an awesome company that graciously welcomes newbies. In the meantime, I'm trying to keep my momentum going with developing as best I can between everything else that I've got going on. So, I found CodeNewbie and the community seems like a fantastic place that might help keep me accountable, optimistic, and continuing onward with my growth and learning as a developer.

I'm excited to be here, and hope to make many new connections with all of you! 😄
