Hello!!

Hello everyone!

To be honest, I'm going to have to backtrack through my current rabbit hole to figure out how I navigated to this wonderful community. However, I can explain what made me join! I've been dabbling with small bits of code here and there for the last 15 years. I've just recently completed an accelerate program for Full-stack Web Development that my local community college just started up. Having accomplished that rather intense feat, I'm trying to find an awesome company that graciously welcomes newbies. In the meantime, I'm trying to keep my momentum going with developing as best I can between everything else that I've got going on. So, I found CodeNewbie and the community seems like a fantastic place that might help keep me accountable, optimistic, and continuing onward with my growth and learning as a developer.

I'm excited to be here, and hope to make many new connections with all of you! 馃槃

Nice to see here. Starting a new adventure is the second phase of any race/career: the first step is dream about it and how we can reach the dream. You have a good starting.

My advice after almost 10 years involved in web development: be positive, share ideas and questions, and be helpful to anyone.

@mikaylad, well I'm not exactly working on anything right now. I mean, I would like to continue to improve upon what I did for my capstone through the program, but I haven't really had the time to focus on it. I do have a coding challenge for one of the companies I applied to, and two of the questions require technologies I'm not very comfortable with yet. The first is bash, which I do have some familiarity with, but I don't feel confident about it yet. The second is mySQL, which I have almost no experience with. I guess I'm just struggling to figure out what are the best resources with the given time constraints. Not to say I won't continue to learn and strengthen my knowledge with bash or mySQL following the challenge. However, it do kind of need a crash course in mySQL at the very least.

To answer you in a more concise way, I'm actively searching for projects or lessons to practice bash and mySQL, but I'm not actually currently working on anything just yet. 馃槉

I've been coding with MERN thus far, though.
