I'm so excited to be surrounded by you. My name is Taryn(they/them), but I'm better known as Tron ;).

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!

Welcome!

I can tell you (as an animal lover ; ) - that you can totally learn to design and build web projects WHILE you raise them. With less time - you'll have to be extra specific in how you choose to spend that time.

I'm Ron in Seattle and joined #CNC2021 Start Coding. I'm early in my coding/tech exploration & learning. I started making my way thru the FreeCodeCamp curriculum and am currently working on the 1st projects for Responsive Web Design. I work as a Project Coordinator in Healthcare and love finding technical solutions to problems. I love learning new things and I'm excited to see if this new knowledge will just help me in my current job or morph into a new career. I'm 50(!) and sometimes feel like it's pretty late to make a major career change.

Also, I've been listening to the backlog of CodeNewbie podcast episodes and they are SO informative and encouraging. Saron is an awesome host and the guests are so diverse. If you haven't checked them out I would highly recommend.

Hi everyone! 👋👋

My name's Tomás (you may spell that as in english) and I'm a 27 years old Argentinian front end dev... I mean, I hope I will be anytime soon.. 🤔

I watched a HTML 3-minutes-video two months ago and instantly knew that I wanted to learn how to code.. So here I am, almost finishing the TeamTreehouse Front End Track, and looking to connect with other people who are also learning

My current knowledge goes up to HTML5, CSS3 (feel very comfortable with those already), JS(which I LOVE but still consider myself a beginner), aswell as npm and Git.

I believe that joining a community will help me in those days where you feel simply too dumb to code. And I hope to serve as a motivation for other people too!

What do you do or advise to battle against that feeling of 'never gonna be capable of this' ? Would be amazing to read!

Hope you have a nice monday, and a wonderful week 😄
