Hello? Anyone out there?

I retired from teaching in 2010, and I sure wish I had started my coding journey back then. My daughter is an engineer and went to a bootcamp to learn coding. I took an abbreviated intro class and have been slowly going through a Udemy Web Dev class by Colt Steele. I recently started listening to the CodeNewbie Podcast when it showed up as a potential podcast I would be interested in. I had been listening to a Python podcast by Michael Kennedy just to become familiar with the topics, and jargon of the “Tech World.”Today, I decided to join this site. I have so many questions, and my daughter is too busy to answer them, so I hope I can find information and people to share with on this site.

Hey Lala,

There are a lot of knowledgeable, friendly, supportive people here in the CodeNewbie community. There are also a lot of great Discord and Slack communities, as well as amazing accounts on Twitter to follow.

It all depends on what you want to learn, the types of questions that you have, and what you're looking for.

I could post a bunch of things, but I'll go with these:

  • Here to Help is a list of volunteers who are willing to offer their services for free. It's everything from technical coding questions to mock interviews for jobs. It contains a list of names and contact info.
  • Zahra (@icycodes on Twitter) is launching a Slack group and Zoom meetups for women in tech/coding. If you are interested, I can get you connected to the group.
  • Danny Thompson (@dthompsondev on Twitter) runs a Discord group for people learning to code called Commit Your Code. You can access it via the link on his Twitter profile.

Those are just a few of the places to find support and fellow coders. If there's something specific that you're looking for, please feel free to ask.
