I'm Ryan Mouser, the Content & Community Marketing Specialist here at Treehouse. My pronouns are he/him. I was 15 years old when I started learning to code in PHP for a popular text-based MMORPG game. I've been with Treehouse for over 2 years now and have had the amazing opportunity to wear many different hats. I've been learning with Treehouse since 2015 (you can check out my previous profile here).

Currently, I'm working alongside our world-class team on some exciting opportunities to bring the Treehouse Community closer together. Stay tuned! 😀

Outside of Treehouse, I have the joy of living life with my incredible wife, our 3 awesome kids, and our 2 cat furbabies. We love to make music, garden, cook, play games, and watch fun TV.

You can connect with me on LinkedIn here. Looking forward to connecting with y'all!

Hoping you all stay safe, healthy, and well!

Hi! I am Omar, a Full Stack JavaScript Developer and currently doing UX Design Techdegree. Here's how I keep my daily goals and keep myself motivated:

1- I always list my todos using Notepad. I found that, using Web Application or desktop apps are just too complicated. 2- I write every tasks that should be accomplished, doesn't matter how much time that should take. I just keep doing them before moving to further advanced subjects / topics.

My hobbies are - Programming, UX, Exercise and Food (especially Thai and Japanese)

Hi Omar! Thanks for the LinkedIn connection. I enjoyed exploring your project and really liked how the images and quotes are arranged in the client review section. I see that you are a Full Stack JavaScript Techdegree graduate. I'm currently following the front-end web development track and have been considering a Techdegree. I'm curious if you would you recommend the Techdegree vs. just following a track. I've read about the added benefits on treehouse but would love to hear from an actual graduate. Best, Ashley

Hi Omar. I'm Muhammad ,a Frontend developer student at treehouse. I have connected you on LinkedIn. I have seen your project it looks great. I like it. Can you please let me know what kind of Hosting you have used to host your project? Thanks.

Hi Ashley Wodzicki I would recommend using the regular track if you're just starting out and when you're confident, just take the Techdegree, it will sharpen your skills more.

Hello Muhammad Khan I used to go with Heroku but recently I've switched to Linode and Digital Ocean, they are awesome. You can also try Vultr. If you have a static site, you can host it on Netlify for free.

Hello! I am new to programming and I am enjoying learning front-end web development with treehouse.

I set daily and weekly goals using a weekly to-do sheet. Physically crossing out items keeps me motivated and I always reflect on how much I've accomplished at the end of the week. I keep myself accountable by scheduling a specific time for programming and I use a focus timer to remember to take breaks.

Today I finished my second project from FrontendMentor.io. I enjoyed using what I learned from the CSS Grid course on this project. Here is the link: https://www.frontendmentor.io/solutions/mobile-first-testimonial-page-using-css-grid-q0Uun3qjl

My hobbies and interests are programming, baking, cycling (road or on peloton), indoor plants, and video games.

Awesome! I just connected you to LinkedIn :)

Good Evening Everyone, I set daily goals in terms of time slots, that is, I dedicate 25 minutes every day to my learning experience in treehouse as well as leaving some space for the idea to settle in, then I try to apply what I have learned by refactoring the projects I've been working on or set for myself, also I write the task on my physical agenda the night before, so it stays in my to-do list. And keep myself accountable by means of the progress that I see, from having very messy projects, to having some better understanding of the projects and how to improve them .

Hello! I'm relatively new to front-end web development and have loved Treehouses Front-End Track! To hold myself accountable I like to set reminders to do at least 1 section every other day which may take anywhere from 30mins to an hour. I'm starting to handwrite todo's so that they are more 'wrote' in memory allowing me to hold myself more accountable.

My most recent project that I completed was through Frontendmentor.io. I'm currently working on a new project on Frontend Mentor that exposes me to a tiny bit of JavaScript.
