Thanks for FreeCodeCamp, I keep referring all my non-techie friends - who want to get into the field of programming, and web - to FCC. I have a couple of questions.
How did you start sourcing for the non-profits at the beginning of FCC, and where / from whom did that idea of "having sites built for non-profits" arise from?
What is the story behind the handle @ossia? :)
Thanks for doing this AMA Quincy, I have a lot of respect for Free Code Camp's mission!
I have a couple of questions:
1) I understand that you want to keep the learning free and open, but why not make a voluntary donation option directly to FCC for those that want to contribute (like you do for other nonprofits for motivation)? I for one would contribute.
2) What learning path/resources would you recommend for someone who wants to get into hybrid mobile apps?
I'm a computer science student, so back end programming just feels more natural to me. So when it comes to design/front end programming I tend to struggle. How can I get better at design.
If I do decided to focus only on back end,will I be hurting my chances for employment opportunities? Do employers look for people who just specialize in either front end or back end?
Thanks for FCC. Such a great resource. I'm finishing up Front End in a few weeks, most likely. Just curious if the Data Viz section, including React, is still set to be completed this summer. I've tried looking into it in my own and was quite confused. I know you guys and the contributors will do a great job with it.
My questions are: What are the hurdles do you think a developer without a degree would have to cross that a developer with a degree wouldn't need to address? Or vice versa.
For some time i wanted to start my own hacklab - code camp in my city since there are none. There were always challenges as to how do i get a place for the hacklab, how do i get people to sing up, etc. So my questions are :
- What were the biggest issues you had in making FCC and maintaining it ?
- Do you think it's better to have a subscription based membership or donation based (for Hacklab) ?
Which language should I learn as my primary language - JS or Java or Python? I want to practice DS and alogos but I can't figure out which language should I choose. I have previous background in Java but nowadays everywhere is python and python is also more abstracted language so it does more in less code. I have future plans to participate in codejam.
