Networking Thursday (9/17) – Connect with other Treehouse Students!
Hey Treehouse Students!
We're back with another Networking Thursday – giving you the opportunity to connect with other Treehouse Students!
Last week's networking session was another jam-packed community event! If you have friends you'd like to invite to participate – please feel free to send them over!
💬 How to participate in Networking Thursday:
- Answer the icebreaker question: How do you stay accountable to continue your learning journey?
- 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 (any Avatar: The Last Airbender fans out there?)
Whenever I'm learning, I find that having a project plan and a daily checklist (using a project management tool like Asana) helps me to make progress every day – even if it's just a small step. My family also provides helpful support in those times to keep me accountable. How do you stay accountable? Who or what in your life helps you stay on track?
You can connect with me on LinkedIn here. Looking forward to connecting with y'all!
Happy networking! :)

Hi, friends at Treehouse! I try to use the Github contribution chart as a way to stay accountable. Being able to see the green dot appear after pushing up some codes for a project or just for practice following a tutorial really helps me.
My name is Wilson and I am based out of NYC. I am currently half-way done with the Web Development fellowship at Flatiron School x Tech Talent Pipeline. 9 weeks down, and about 10 more weeks to go. I learned Ruby, Ruby on Rails, and we are now moving on to vanilla JS for the next three weeks.
Outside of learning how to code and becoming a better programmer - I enjoy doing yoga first thing in the morning, and also getting a good work out through functional training. I feel really energized after a good workout and it helps me stay focused throughout the day. My guilty pleasures are sipping on tequila and binging on Netflix content when I feel like doing absolutely nothing.
Please feel free to connect with me!

Hi everyone!! I have a desired goal. Every day I think that studying a little, brings me closer to that goal
My name is Anna, I'm based on Mexico. Currently I'm half-way done with the #100DaysOfCode challenge. This is my fist time coding, and I'm so exited to learn more. Right now I'm at the React Basics course. I never think that development was for me, but I'm getting good at this. I'm part of the Happiness Team at Trabajo en Digital a job board, but I'm looking for to move to the development area.
I'm working on the React's scoreboard exercise right now.
My hobbies are yoga, swimming, books and embroidery. I'm a illustrator and I have a little brand named Molletes en Jupiter. I'm yellow belt in taekwondo and i'm trying to improve my english. Oh i'm a Ravenclaw btw.

I'm Will Noble. I have a community of friends that care and we all hold each other accountable.
I live in Maryland with my lovely wife who I just married in May. I recently finished a coding bootcamp and I'm on the job hunt as well as looking for more chances to grow and practice my programming skills.

I love spending time with my wife and reading books on either history or theology.

My name is Zander. I am 26 years old and live in Glasgow, Scotland, UK.
I always fall back to my portfolio and experiences to justify career progression as I climb the Web Dev career ladder. Our portfolios and experiences are personal and unique to all of us and are what set us apart for excelling in various roles. I am accountable to continually work on mine, just like others are theirs.
First I was a Highschool student aspiring to university... Then I was a graduate... Then I was a Junior Front End Web Developer... Now I am a Front End Web Developer (with UI/UX).
I have a goal to become a Senior Front End Web Developer/Junior Back end/Back end/Full stack and ultimately senior web developer (You know those roles we all see based in London with 100k salaries!!! :) Something like that...)
TeamTreehouse is the medium that has helped me get this far and continues to carry me further! I was actually recommended to TeamTreehouse by a friend who had a TeamTreehouse article on him! (Laurie Gray)
I like to keep fit and study... but this clashes with a desire of liking to socialise with alcohol - which kills energy and motivation afterwards! Finding the balance is key and I'm still trying to master it at 26 :)

I am Mahdi Jafari, software engineer who thinks degree doesn't have value and most important thing in developer life is his knowledge and skills. I have chosen python as my primary language because it's stable , easy, capable and fast. I am currently working as Researcher & Developer in Asia Pacific University.

Hi all! I stay motivated by an innate desire to learn...everything. My wife is also a big motivation and accountability factor. We've set a plan for our life and my career is going to factor heavily into that.
When I'm not coding, I'm enjoying good food and drinks with my wife. Walking and playing with our dog. Or playing video or board games. Currently working on Darkest Dungeon...having even a bit of coding knowledge gives me a great appreciation for the work that people put into these games.
