I'm a part-time software engineer and stay-at-home-dad. I used to be a high-school English teacher, but #freeCodeCamp cured me of that.

I love poetry but don't read enough of it.

I hate arguing online but I do way too much of it.

I try to seek out people with different life experiences to me, so if I follow you and you wonder if I'm gonna be problematic and tell you you're wrong, I'm actually just listening in and hoping to learn something.

I'd probably block me. YMMV


@JacksonBates Welcome!

I'm currently working my way through the freeCodeCamp curriculum. I'd be curious about your thoughts on what it's like to go from studying online to an actual career.

@morganmay it's awesome and intense. Getting the first job is really hard, and you second guess yourself all the time as an imposter for ages. But eventually it settles down and then you're just being paid to code all day, which is awesome.

I'm a moderator at the #freecodecamp forum, btw. Feel free to drop in and ping me specifically if you ask a question noone picks up on. User name there is @JacksonBates as well.
