Hey Treehouse Students!

Welcome back to another Networking Thursday, where you can make connections with other Treehouse Students!

šŸ’¬ How to participate:

  1. Answer the icebreaker activity ā€“ What's one new thing you want to learn this year?
  2. Introduce yourself!
  3. Share your LinkedIn profile URL for other students to connect to
  4. Share links and/or screenshots of the projects you've been working on

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! šŸ’¬

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.

My current learning goal is... leveling up skills in new and exciting areas of digital marketing!

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

Hoping you all stay safe, healthy, and well.

Hello, I'm Grace. I am an aspiring software engineer. but my goal now is to continue learning JavaScript and then reactJs so I may be able to get my second real web developer job!

I am working at daytime and a student at nighttime,

I have lots of motivation and i miss having a mentor and going to the boot camp to learn, I'm so hungry for learning!

Anyway, nice to meet you here all of you! Hope everyone's fine?

Hi Grace, I'm also working on JavaScript (and then React) to also get my second web developer job lol! From your post alone it looks like we are in a similar situation. I myself am looking forward to working with API's and being a true wordpress developer (themes and plugins, start to finish). I wish you the best of luck! If you'd like a student-buddy on this journey feel free to reach out!

Hello all!

I'm Tyler. I am a Front-End Web Dev Techdegree Graduate and Slack Champion, currently enrolled in the FullStackJS TD. I am also a trumpet player and Store manager of a Corporate Music Retail Company.

You can't just simply limit what you want to learn to just one! :p But if you insist...

const newLearning = [Gatsby.js, Scrapi, WordPress]

(Does one learning array count?)

You can check me out at my LinkedIn Profile where I have been actively posting in the form of #100daysofcode (Just to keep in honest in sharing what I am working on!)

I also have an active portfolio website!

Those keen to ReactJS, I am currently attempting to build a Weather App. It's still at the crude stages but the code is available to view at GitHub.

Currently, when the weather is warm, I might be out fishing. Otherwise, I still try to get in my trumpet practice for future gigs as they come up!

Happy coding all!

Hi everyone, I'm Zaid. I'm a Web developer, and I'm so excited to finally advancing to react. I recently learned webpack, which allows you to bundle your (HTML, CSS, JS) files to generate a single file for each to work in the browser. So I decided to implement this in my Portfolio. Yes, I'm flexing :p but I'm glad to accomplish something new.

Outside of web development, I like to make short cinematic music videos on YouTube (which are terrible). It's very fulfilling for me.

I would love to connect with y'all; here is my LinkedIn and Twitter.

Web Development specially JavaScript.

Hi Everyone,

My name is Dan and I'm an aspiring developer from London. I have slowly been learning front-end technologies for the past couple of years and I am seeking to transition into a full-time developer role asap.

Here is my linked in profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/daniel-may-b15baa44/

I also have my portfolio up and running and I am constantly working on little projects to add to it as I'm sure you all are!

I find Treehouse has been the best place to learn as the courses really break down the topics which makes them easy to understand.

Please reach out if you have any questions! :-)

Hi everyone,

I'm Chris, a full stack .net developer for almost 3 years now (after university). I have been using Treehouse on and off for about 4 years and I am looking at coming back again to level up my UX skills as I think this is actually the career path I want to take!

Outside of work and learning I love photography and my aim this year is to create my own website to show off my image portfolio.

Full Stack JavaScript Techdegree Student 12,035 Points

Hello Ryan and Angelo!

My name is Nathan, I am currently in the Full Stack JavaScript Techdegree program. I have had some basic instruction on coding throughout most of my life (QBasic, C++, and now JavaScript), but I never fully learned one language. Now I am looking to change careers, I am looking specifically for a remote job that will allow me to travel and live in different places while I work.

I don't currently have a LinkedIn profile but will be creating one soon as I know it is important for professional networking and other reasons. I hope to meet some cool people here to network and learn along with.

Hi everyone,

I'm Ashish from India and I'm a javascript developer with 2 years professional experience in developing web/mobile applications. I'm learning UX right now in my spare time and have a plan to build 2 products by the end of this year.
