Hey everyone, I'm a teacher at freeCodeCamp. I am a long-time fan of CodeNewbie and have participated in some of their Twitter chats over the years. I am not sure how much I'll write here on the new CodeNewbie site, but I wanted to introduce myself. I look forward to reading your writing, and hope you all have a fun, insightful time.

Hello everyone! I have been a long time follower of CodeNewbie and Dev. I was super excited by the merger of the two a while back and I can only imagine what this community will grow into.

I have been in development for a decade now, mostly within the AWS ecosystem, but have been doing more and more with Hybrid cloud and multi-cloud things. I am very excited to continue sharing my knowledge with this inclusive community.

Hey y'all! I'm a former bootcamp graduate and have been working as a software engineer who primarily works with Ruby on Rails for 7 months now. I went through a 14 month long and arduous job search before landing my current role, where I now sit on the other side of interviews!

My passion for blogging was sparked over on DEV nearly 2 years ago now. Writing for the CodeNewbie tag there was one of my favorite things to do, so I'm really excited to be here and help contribute to this amazing community and resource for CodeNewbies!

Hey, Carl here! Started listening to CodeNewbie back in 2016/17 when I was first learning to program. The community played a key part in introducing me to the wider world of software development and I would like to give back in sharing everything I have learnt since then. I really like digging into the source code of open-source libraries and blogging about my discoveries.

Howdy everybody!

I'm Greg! Also known as Gregory (if your Mom and are mad at me) or Greggles (if you are my CEO (literally, he has picked up my nickname and calls me nothing else ๐Ÿฅฐ).

I have been on a wild ride to get to where I am now! I work at WeTransfer, started as a junior support agent, worked my way up to team lead but then switched careers and brought all my knowledge of our users with me to become a junior frontend engineer!

I started 2 weeks before corona hit and we went into lockdown... so, its been a challenge!

Looking forward to being part of this community! I was only dreaming of something similar last week, so thank you!!!
