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! šŸ˜€

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.

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

Hoping you all stay safe, healthy, and well!

I'm staying connected and networking by creating a blog, however, with working full-time and studying FSJS I've found it challenging to update it frequently. I plan to make an effort to sign-up for online meet-ups, so please let me know if you're aware of any meet-ups geared to coding newbies.

Hello everyone. I'm Jonathan, and I'm a FSJS TD student. I initially started as FEWD TD in November 2020, but decided to pivot this year to take on the the challenge of learning JS.

Feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn or Twitter.

Here's a link to my profile I created. I'll admit that I haven't updated recently because I've been to busy learning JS.

I'm passionate about American football and the NFL. My favorite team is the Dallas Cowboys. I love all things data analytics.

I have recently started blog to record my journey of pivoting to a developer career. You can go here to view it.

Hi all. Having a blast with the React Unit on the FullStack JavaScript techdegree. Per my bio, I'm a finance guy, happy in my career, and looking to do programming on the side as my hobby. Just like Jonathan Tucker, I work full-time, and have dabbled with coding before.

I've tried learning GoLang and Python on my own, and done a few other small things, but TeamTreeHouse keeps me honest and incentivized. I'm not going to stop paying for this until it's done, and if I'm not doing it, it's burning a $$$ hole in my wallet every month. :)

I'm always open to connecting with you guys on LinkedIn.

I recently changed up my website from being a GitHub Pages to Heroku back-end, but I am seeing some problems with that, and it was more for fun than for the actual need of the use case. So, I'll post my personal page next time once that's rectified somehow.

'nuff talk, pitter patter..let's get at 'er. :)

So I've been watching the IG stories of successful females in STEM talk about networking via Instagram and getting job offers from networking on the platform. I just recently reached out to a SWE at Google and introduced myself and emphasized that working at Google is my dream job. I've been networking through Instagram. I also have a friend that offered to send her my resume to work at her company through instagram. I find that networking through instagram to be an excellent option other than Networking Thursdays and Linkedin. I'm Sarah. I'm an academic at heart. A habitual student learning and improving my metacognition. Also, I am interested in improving my understanding of computer science. Data structures and algorithms across multiple programming languages enthralls me.

I am currently working on my first project which is building a portfolio website of all current and future projects. See my linkedin profile for more information.Ā  I'm so thrilled to start sharing more of myself and documenting my journey with all of you.

For the longest time I've had the wrong perceptions on math. I had a math phobia. In the past I dislike math only because I had poor self image in my own abilities to master mathematics and I didn't have the motivation or support from my peers to enable me to be confident in mastering it.

Now my perception has changed. I like that doing math problems creates new neural pathways and expands cognitive capabilities in the brain.

I love the learning process and find joy in the challenge of it.
