Networking Thursday (10/15) – Connect with other Treehouse Students!
Hey Treehouse Students!
Welcome back to another Networking Thursday, where you can connect with other Treehouse Students!
Thanks to those of you who participated in the last Networking Thursday! Be sure to invite your friends to participate as well!
💬 How to participate in Networking Thursday:
- Answer the icebreaker activity – Describe your coding (or design) journey by only using emojis! 😄 Tip: To add emojis from Mac by using the keyboard shortcut Command+Control+Shift or Windows by pressing the Windows key and the period button.
- Introduce yourself!
- Share your LinkedIn profile URL for other students to connect to
- Share links and/or screenshots of the projects you've been working on
- Share your interests, hobbies, etc!
- Chat with other students here by responding to their posts!
Make those connections, support each other, leave some endorsements/recommendations on other student's LinkedIn profiles, lend a helping hand to folx in search of work in tech, and give some positive feedback on fellow student's projects. We're all on this learning journey together!
I'll kick things off! 💬
I'm Ryan Mouser, the Content & Community Marketing Specialist here at Treehouse. 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 (Schitt's Creek Season 6 is on Netflix!)
My coding journey has looked a bit like this... maybe some of you can relate?
You can connect with me on LinkedIn here. Looking forward to connecting with y'all!
Happy networking! :)

Hello Everyone who has and/or will comment! I'm a Navy veteran currently on terminal leave, I am doing an IT apprenticeship training course through TLG in the Seattle area and learning more Python as I have been dabbling in it for the past few months. I hope to make the transition into Tech as my previous field is Nuclear Power/Engineering maintenance and I'm definitely more interested in Software Development, Game Development and Cloud Computing. My coding journey has looked like: 😮🤷♂️🤞🤞🤞🤦♂️👀👀🤔🤔🤞🤞👍✔😃🤷♂️ Hope to connect with you all on LinkedIn, you can contact me at: https://www.linkedin.com/in/hunterbmoffitt/
Anthony PrabowoFront End Web Development Techdegree Graduate 20,476 Points
Hey everyone! I'm a student at University of California, Irvine and currently pursuing a bachelor degree in Business Information Management. I stated learning code back when I was doing my old job as a computer lab technician in the community college. I remember that at some point in my education journey, I decided to enroll in a C++ course. It was a fine experience but I remember hating it after I move to university and I stop coding for around 6 months until I found a video of Chris Sean (idk if you guys have heard about him on YouTube). My curiosity for coding grew ever-since and here I am.
Currently, I'm taking the Front-End developer techdegree here at treehouse and it's been a wonderful experience for me.
Here is what my coding journey look like: 🤔💡🤞🤷♂️🤦♂️🤔💡🤦♂️🤔🤔🤞👍✔🥳🎉😎

Hello All! Currently I'm doing the very beginning track on Treehouse to help me get a better understanding of how Web Devs, Web Designers, and Mobile Devs jobs work, plus networking and all that jazz. I'm going through a course in my city that'll hopefully help me switch my focus from telecommunications, where I've spent 5 years of my time, to the tech industry. I have some college experience but never graduated, and I'm learning that's okay! College isn't for everyone. :) I've been teaching myself HTML/CSS the past few weeks to get ready for this course and I'm excited to see where I'm at when it comes to the Treehouse courses. 🤞👀😎👌😒😢🎶🎶🎶💻🐴😍👀👌👌👌 LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jacob-clark-5a8823126/ GitHub: https://github.com/JaySeeFahx Twitter: @JaySeeFahx

Hi Guys! My name is Isabelle. I am SUPER new to tech and have kind of made a career change amidst the pandemic. I am in the UX Design program and am also a hair and makeup artist specialized in fashion. I'm only a week in but am enjoying treehouse a lot. UX design is a lot like designing a beauty design for your user. Please feel free to message me and checkout my work here :) (PS yes I know my site needs redesigning lol) https://www.isabellemahealani.com/

My name is Tim and I've been teaching myself Python, C++, and Swift, but have been spending most of my time focusing on Python. I don't know exactly what it is, but Python is just really appealing to me. I've mainly been working on some small projects - most recently recreating Flappy Bird using Pygame. I'm also looking at joining a bootcamp for Front-End Web Development as I've talked with some of my coworkers and they've said it was a great experience. Anyways, I hope to connect with some of you on Linkdin
My name is Alfonso and I've been learning Django for the last 2 months with the idea of making an app, I have been working for more than 10 years in market research and now I am working in Singapore. I want to build an intelligent website that blends market research concepts and company insights.
I jumped here after finishing the Coursera Django for everybody specialization that it was quite messy and the journey here has been quite smooth in comparison, this is my emoji journey here 💕🐱🏍🎢🧨🧨🧨🎢🐱🏍💕
My dream was to make a videogame but I think that train already left the station, so I suppose that if I cannot make a videogame I will make an intelligent website instead. Sadly I don't have pictures of my project yet, but soon I will have some.
This is my linkedin profile, it would be good to connect with you guys! https://www.linkedin.com/in/delosreyesalfonso/
Good luck 🐈

Tyler PfleddererTreehouse Project Reviewer
Hey all! My name is Tyler and I am a recent graduate of the Front-End Web Development Techdegree!
😁😁😁😁😁😢😢😢🤔🤔🤔✔✔✔✔ . . . . 👌😜
My current job is a store manager for a corporate music retail company, whom I've been with for a total of 4 1/2 years. I have been interested in web development for 11 years since first getting introduced to when helping my mom with my high school band's website. Up until arriving at Treehouse, it had been very off and on exploring code as a hobby, having even dabbled in fundamental PHP and MySQL. I started the TechDegree in May as an indirect result of current world and life events. I never found a quality opportunity and financial circumstance until now where I could do courses leading to an extensive certification with full flexibility in time spent learning AND have something to show for it at the end. I also knew of this company's reputation prior with college friends who have jobs in this type of industry. I am seeking a career shift to development and strive to put emphasis into better accessibility on the WWW.
My current hobbies mostly consist of fishing 🎣 and whatever games I can keep my attention to, but am down for a round of golf, bowling, or going to see stock car races.
I am also a classically trained musician with a degree in Music Performance, so I hope my critical thinking skills and work ethic will successfully translate to a job in this field.
Thanks all and happy coding!
I just want to say that being self-thaught programmer and it's been a long road! I have encountered pretty different programs and treehouse has kept me going and kept me motivated. It's nights and days the comparison.
