Hi everyone! I'm Jess from South Africa. A social worker and project manager learning how to code! When you don't come from a tech or CS background you can definitely feel as if you don't belong. But my experience so far is that the coding space is really welcoming despite the perceived barriers to entry.

I don't worry too much about being out aged or skilled. I hoping that my real life problem solving skills and eagerness to learn will help me get over being pushed aside by a 14 year old AI prodigy. I'm excited to have found this community and ready to learn with all of you.
