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.
My favorite thing about learning to code is the ability to be creative, analytical, and technical all at once to create a vision. It's super rewarding when new concepts are understood and code runs smoothly (or bugs are fixed!)
You can connect with me on LinkedIn here. Looking forward to connecting with y'all!
Happy networking! :)

1.My favorite things about learning to code is the problem solving aspect of coding. I enjoy the process of breaking problems down into manageable chunks and tackle them with the tools at my disposal.
2.Hello everyone. I'm Jonathan and a FEWD TD student since 11/16/20. I recently completed a graduate degree in ISM with a specialization in Business Intelligence Tools. From that experience, I realized that I need to know how to code. I work full time and father to two great kids so life keeps me busy, but I love it.

My hobbies include streaming video games on twitch, watching anime magic the gathering and playing poker.
Jason KampfPython Development Techdegree Student 4,871 Points
My favorite thing about learning to code is that it is just so opposite to my current carrer in healthcare. The challenge of learning something completely new to me is exciting.
My name is Jason Kampf and I am from North Idaho.
My main interests are homebrewing, and spending time with my wife and two kids. I was pretty heavily into photograpy in the past, and once I have more time available I would like to eventually get back into it a bit more.

What's your favorite thing about learning to code?
My favorite thing about coding is learning to shape an idea into a project. It's hard to come up with something original or exciting sometimes. But when you do, it makes all the work you did to learn the syntax, API, and framework you studied worth it.
I'm Tim Aguirre. I am an inspiring Developer learning the tricks of the trade one step at a time.
Treehouse has always been one of my primary resources to learn as I will always love how their lessons focus on projects compared to other resources that focus on language syntax with no context.
Currently, in the unemployed life, looking for new opportunities. So I can use my new found expensive piece of paper. Until then, will keep my learning focus up to defeat the constant imposter syndrome running through my mind.
Share your LinkedIn profile URL for other students to connect to
Let me know how your journey is going here. It's always great to connect with people who are learning and progressing, especially in this isolated COVID environment. And of course, if you have any opportunities you think I might be a good fit for, hit me up.
Share links and/or screenshots of the projects you've been working on
Like any professional dev, I have my git hub with my projects I work on here.
I also released my first android app in the Android Play Store here. Its a pretty straightforward app to help players of a pc game called phasmaphobia. But I'm pretty proud of it and going through the app store release process.
I'm now focused on trying to learn to react Native so that I can develop for iPhone and Android at the same time.
Share your interests, hobbies, etc!
Like any proper adult, I spend my time enjoying TV shows, movies, and video games when I'm not working. And when I'm not doing that, I try to work on other content creation, including playing some new hype on twitch or creating a fun vlog video for youtube or anything in between.
Chat with other students here by responding to their posts!
General question for everyone.
What career focus do you want to pursue in coding?
My main focus right now is Mobile development. I love making mobile apps because everyone has a phone but not everyone has a computer and I believe the access to mobile apps is so much simpler.
Steven WeeksTreehouse Project Reviewer
1) Answer the icebreaker activity – What's your favorite thing about learning to code? Learning to code has allowed me to invest in myself, by using the resources that Treehouse and others have provided me. It's taken me from being on a 9-5 grind of work I didn't enjoy, to a career where I can use creativity to explore problems and solve in different ways and collaborate with other engineers to figure out solutions to issues that aren't always straight forward.
2) Introduce yourself! I'm Steven, I went through the FSJS tech degree and graduated back in December 2018 (That seems so long ago...), through the TAP program I got an internship at Vacasa where I've thrived, even with Covid-19 rearing it's ugly head.
3) Share your LinkedIn profile URL for other students to connect to: https://www.linkedin.com/in/steven-weeks-9996aa143/
4) Share links and/or screenshots of the projects you've been working on: I would, but I keep most of my coding strictly at work and They'd likely not appreciate my sharing of that. But I can tell you that I recently had to learn how to deal with SOAP endpoints and parsing through strings of XML to make updates to employees as part of a sync between a new HRIS and our inhouse monolith.
5) Share your interests, hobbies, etc! I'm usually gaming, walking or watching Netflix in my off time. Listening to Dark Synthwave during work is a hobby, I suppose.

hello my name is Kri'Shawn Brown. I'm very new to the coding world. as of right now I'm studying to become a full stack software programmer. honestly, in the short time from which I've been learning, I can honestly say that I'm very interested in CSS aspect of it all. I find the ability to take something dull and plain and give it life and purpose is really awesome. In the future I plan on taking a deeper dive into CSS.

I'm Gabriel Alcaraz someone that started to learn code about four months ago and I love doing code. I started because I always wanted to be a coder for videogames and this makes my job possible.

My favorite thing about coding would be, experiencing how complex simplicity is then mastering it.
My name is Jesus Cardenas and I worked in the film and music video industry as a producer and director. Due to the current conditions of the world I decided to join the coding world.
Here a few of my work from working in film and music https://jcardenas816.wixsite.com/jesuscardenas2020
Looking to work with others on projects, I work best in a team. Reach out to collaborate!
I love music, discovering new music and enjoying artist like, Kid Cudi, Kanye West, Frank Ocean, Brent Faiyaz, Snoh Aalegra, J Cole, Emotional Oranges etc Im hoping I can learn to code and use it to add to the music and film world somehow. To help creative artist integrate with software.

I am a little late to this party but I wanted to join in on this weeks fun!
Hi I am Mel! I am a Python TechDegree Grad and a game development enthusiast! My favorite thing about learning to code, is that EVERYDAY I am learning something new.... whether its a new method, a new way of achieving a specific task, or a new syntax.
I am currently building an RPG (with C# and Unity) called The Queerest Quest that is going to teach people about the LGBTQ+ community through exploration and engagement. You can follow my progress on LinkedIn :)
Great to meet you all! ^-^
