  1. Leave a comment below to introduce yourself! You can talk about what brought you here, what you're learning, or just a fun fact about yourself.

  2. Make some new friends by responding to another newbie's comment ๐Ÿ‘‹ Feel free to follow one another, too!


P.S. If you have a technical question, you've come to the right place! Use the #help tag in a new post to ask the community for assistance with writing your first line of code, picking a tool to use for a particular project, or anything else. No question is too basic.

If you're looking for some moderator-approved resources for coding beginners, head to #webdev101 for web development content and #compsci101 for computer science content โค๏ธ

Hi Fellow CodeNewbies,

I am Denis and I am based in the USA. To be specific Minneapolis, Minnesota. Though I actively participate in CodeNewbies twitter chat by answering questions and engaging with people, it is my first time here. I am happy to be here and I am excited to participate in this challenge starting with the writing challenge. Though the challenge started several days ago, I wasn't fully ready to start the challenge until this weekend. I am still going to do it. It's better late than never. It is great to meet you all.

I'm learning TypeScript and attempting to learn Python (not sure if it's a great idea to learn so many things in the meantime lol).

Hi!

I'm so excited to be surrounded by you. My name is Taryn(they/them), but I'm better known as Tron ;). I live in Brooklyn, NY and graduated from the Grace Hopper Program at Fullstack Academy in October! Since then I've been burying my brain in data structures and algorithms to prepare for interviews, and feel that my overall coding/projects have suffered a bit. So this is my attempt to start a consistent practice! My stack is JavaScript, React, Redux, Node.js/Express, PostreSQL, and Sequelize ORM. Looking forward to getting to know you all!
