Hiya, I'm Lucy from the UK 🇬🇧 and currently living in Cali, Colombia 🇨🇴. I started coding last year during the pandemic and have completely fallen in love. I did CS50 last year and now I'm doing CS50W (both from the University of Harvard). I am looking to connect with more programmers because I have no idea how to make this into a career and feel a bit overwhelmed with it all 🥺. My dream is to be able to work online and support myself financially through coding 😊

Hi Lucy, am about taking the CS50 course. I don’t know if it’s really worth it. I’ll really appreciate your review.

Hi Amaechi, I personally loved it because I felt that it gave me a really good foundation in how to think like a programmer. David Malan is an incredible teacher and has an amazing way of explaining difficult things in a simple way.
However, the 2021 course has changed and the lectures are now a lot longer, so it might take a bit more time to complete.

Hello Hiya, I did CS50 last year too. That course is really awesome and fun. I noticed you are in Colombia, I am from Pereira, Colombia. I have a couple of JavaScript and technical interview resources if you are interested. Happy coding

Hi Gabriel, thanks for the comment! CS50 is so great. I am actually doing CS50W at the moment, but I am taking my time :)
That's so cool that you are from Colombia. I would love these resources, could you share them with me? :)
