Hiya, I'm Lucy from the UK 🇬🇧 and currently living in Cali, Colombia 🇨🇴. I started coding last year during the pandemic and have completely fallen in love. I did CS50 last year and now I'm doing CS50W (both from the University of Harvard). I am looking to connect with more programmers because I have no idea how to make this into a career and feel a bit overwhelmed with it all 🥺. My dream is to be able to work online and support myself financially through coding 😊

Hi Lucy, am about taking the CS50 course. I don’t know if it’s really worth it. I’ll really appreciate your review.

Hi Amaechi, I personally loved it because I felt that it gave me a really good foundation in how to think like a programmer. David Malan is an incredible teacher and has an amazing way of explaining difficult things in a simple way.
However, the 2021 course has changed and the lectures are now a lot longer, so it might take a bit more time to complete.

JavaScript is giving me a hard time understanding than Python. But I know things are always hard in the beginning.

So how's Reactjs?

Hello, I'm Ibrah from Tanzania. I started learning coding in December 2020. I love coding but most of the time I feel so demotivated and bored because I don't have a mentor or a learning partner. I know I can't fly solo, so I need someone who's on their own coding journey as a learning partner I know it can make all the different as a beginner.

Hello everyone,

I am Jean and here to propose help an guidance to 2 or 3 people. I don't know how CodeNewbie works yet, although I would just add that I'd be glad to answer questions through messaging (on the platform anytime) or during visio-coding sessions (2 times a week). People having less than 2 years experience Web Development in general or more specifically in C++ ; JavaScript | ReactJS | Foundation ; Gatsby or Netlify or none at all but willing to learn are welcome.


I hope to become a good enough teacher in the next 2 years to teach web-development in South East Asia (Indonesia, Cambodia)

Hi folks

I'm keizzmann from Lagos Nigeria. I started learning how to code in 2019 and now i code in javascript, python and c# even though I'm pretty much a learner in all these. I keep struggling with finding a good learning method and motivation to do things, especially projects. I believe i can be better when I'm around a community that forces me to build projects weekly and teach me when I'm wrong and help me grow.

Cause if i do, I'm really passionate about doing good things and making them open source.

I found this platform from dev.to so i hope to make coding friends that build projects as the beat way to learn.

Thank you
