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.

Ron from Miami with a friendly hello...and glad to see I'm Am Not Alone (getting flashbacks of X-Files). Turning the big 50 on the 4th of July and I am currently in IT. Going back to my alma mater for a second degree in IT since I was originally in teaching. I want to become a java developer and thought it was a little crazy considering my age...but apparently I'm not the only crazy to see others in my similar situation.....this discussion thread is very motivating! GL to all!!

Hi everyone! πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹

My name's TomΓ‘s (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.. πŸ€”

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 πŸ˜„

Hello CodeNewbies!

I’m Zachary and I’m based in Texas, USA. Very nice to be here with you all. I am trying to change job fronts at the age of 35. I am currently trying to learn JaveScript. I know the basics of HTML and CSS. I still have to look up things as I go. I have a deep desire to learn enough to be a programmer. I want to move on to Python after JavaScript.
