Knowledge Sharing

Hello World! this is my first post in this Forum. I'm in the Treehouse / Code Oregon / Worksource Oregon < imatchskills > program. In that program, I've been listing my capacities in other jobs. Are there others that have joined through the collaboration between Treehouse and Code Oregon? What's that been like for you so far?

For whatever occupation / career I wind up with, I know that it's good to be able to have knowledge of common language tools. I wonder about the phrase "Run a Program", and of learning how to code as also learning how to talk about what sorts of "Programs" we are running. We are, after all, creating systems around it.

Has anyone used coding in their not-a-computer-programmer job? Has learning how to program helped you to find jobs as, say, a Lacrosse Coach, or as an Event Planner, or as a Marketer or Urban Planner?

I am also signed up through this program. As far as how it relates to job searching or obtainment of a job outside this field i have no idea. I honestly wouldn't think that these skill would be of much use other than how they relate to organizational skills. Again this is just my opinion and not actual fact but it makes sense to me that way.

Hi Dj Dimick and Logan Johnston!

Thanks so much for joining Code Oregon :)

I would recommend you start with the Front-end Dev Track, if you haven't done programming before. Once you've done that, I would recommend the Ruby on Rails Track.

We'll be launching a Career Dashboard soon which will guide you on your journey to a new job! :)

All the best, Ryan

Totally agree; Treehouse has done a great job of organizing leaning topics in a logical progression.
