I'll kick things off! ๐Ÿ’ฌ

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! ๐Ÿ˜€

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 (has anyone seen "My Octopus Teacher" on Netflix yet? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ™)

My favorite code editor other than our awesome Treehouse Workspaces would be Atom. For design tool and prototyping โ€“ I love using Figma! It's super intuitive, easy-to-use, and the web browser capabilities are just what I need.

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

Happy networking! :)

HELLO!!! I'm Silvia! a recent Frontend Tech graduated. Can't believe I have actually done it :O I am currently on the React full track, but I'm also full time Office Manager so I kind of divide myself whenever I can :P

My fav code editor is VISUAL STUDIO, in love with it! so intuitive and easy to use!

I love dancing! but since this is not possible, I just go to the gym (I literally go and keep waking around.... haha) I do enjoy myself watching super heroes movies or reading comics, kind of a nerd yes :P

This is a link for my LinkedIn if you wish to connect :) https://www.linkedin.com/in/%F0%9F%91%A9%F0%9F%8F%BC%E2%80%8D%F0%9F%92%BB-silvia-ramos-exp%C3%B3sito-08a79186/

G'day guys, just saw this networking thread and figured I throw my 2c in. I'm a former USAF pilot just starting a new airline career... I know, great timing right :-<.

Well, with all this extra time off I decided to get serious about programming and app development. I have a dream to create a suit of financial portfolio management apps with a volatility and trend following focus. I've got and MBA with emphasis in finance and am looking for ways to use those skills without having to wear a suit and tie for 10hrs a day, lol.

I've always loved coding. Going way back to early high school my dad introduced me to Basic, and I was hooked. Since then I did a bit with Visual Basic and the Direct X API (I think it was version 7 back then). My only recent coding experience is with Excel/Access VBA to optimize metric gathering requests from AF leadership. That's not exactly what I consider exciting coding so I'm looking forward to blazing my own trail!

I'm fairly new to treehouse and progressing through the Java tracks. I figures this would be a good base before starting the mobile tracks. The material is well put together and I love the video format. I only wish there was a tech degree for Android/iPhone app development.

I was born in the US but grew up in Melbourne, Australia. I love the surf, sand and sun and spending time with my wife and two girls.

Best wishes,

Steve

I really like VS Code and Notepad++ as code editors. I haven't had enough experience with different design tools but I'm looking forward to learning more Adobe XD or PS so I don't have to use paint anymore, no offense to microsoft.

I'm Jason Nutt, I'm also a recent FEWD grad. and new PHP enthusiast and student at Treehouse. My pronouns are he/him. I am super excited to have passed the first milestone in this journey and where it will lead. Before the world changed due to the current pandemic, I was a dedicated service industry professional. My experience in the service industry as a Server/ Bartender/ Head Service trainer has been invaluable but I believe that everything happens for a reason. I have been blessed with the time and opportunity to learn a new (for me) skill that I know will transform: translate() into a career that I can be proud of.

Hi Everyone, My name is Nick and my favorite editor is Visual Studio Code. Atom is cool, too.

I'm currently enrolled in the FEWD TechDegree and once I make it through I'll probably do the JavaScript path since I really enjoy the logic and usefulness of JavaScript. I'd also like to learn Python because you can do a lot of cool stuff with it, too.

I'm a dad, a Food Scientist (I have a Masters Degree in Food Science worked in the Food Industry for 17 years), health coach and trainer. Ask me about processed food, I can tell you all about how frozen pizza, mayonnaise, cheese powder or energy bars are made. I stopped being a Food Scientist to have more time with my kids while they are young and do something with technology because I've been interested in it since I was a kid.

Let's connect on LinkedIn and share cool stuff we've made!

Hey Nick! Great to see you here again. Awesome that you're considering the Full Stack JavaScript path after your FEWD graduation โ€“ good choice! You're on your way to being a polyglot!

Hey all I am learning the full stack javascript track on treehouse and I am almost there! VS Code is the best by FAR because of its popularity among programmers leading to all of the language features that you can have
