  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 πŸ‘‹ 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 ❀️

I'm Joan from Nairobi, Kenya.
I've been trying to carve out time to work on side projects and learn more in-depth stuff, aside from work, but have struggled a lot with keeping consistent.
Nice to be here with you all :-)
