Hi jake, sorry for the late response - I haven't looked at this for a while. I'm finding the odin project amazing. It pushes you hard but you end up learning a lot from it and having a lot to show for your time and effort. I'd highly recommend trying it out.

Andy Anderson

Hello, my name is Andy. I discovered this site while watching a YouTube video from the Codeland Conference 2018 - the speaker mentioned it as a good resource. I'm not exactly a newbie - I have a BS in Computer Science and actually did a lot of coding in the early part of my career - but it's been a long time since I got pulled away from the fun stuff to do more management and administrative stuff. Now that I'm retired, I want to get back to coding. I guess the first thing to do is try to catch up with the changes in technology over the past 25+ years. I'm looking forward to finding kindred spirits.

Hello!

My name is Scott. I have been playing around with Web Development for a few months, but my education journey has been rather stop-start. I now finally have the time to put in more of my time and energy on this path!

I am enrolled onto several Udemy courses, where I have just finished learning JavaScript fundamentals. So now I feel prepared to complete little mini-projects of my own. I am completing the the Fontend Mentor challenges, and I am slowly moving onto my making my own portfolio website.

I hope everyone is doing okay and I would love to make some geat connections!
