Programmer, designer, bitcoiner, soccer player, & astrophotographer.
I'm Moses Finlay, a 16-year-old software engineer from Oregon. For the last 8+ years, I've had a passion for programming and design ever since I made my first computer game when I was eight.
When I was 12, I started a year-long coding bootcamp, where I received a Techdegree. Since then, I've built a platform for online communities called Tracker, and I built an NFT marketplace as side project called Block Gallery.
It's a good idea to start with an area that's interesting to you. There are many different areas in programming, but if you can narrow it down to something specific like building a website or app, that's where I recommend starting. There are hundreds of programming languages out there. And every language has its own strengths.
I'm planning on starting a local coding meetup in Roseburg, Oregon. If you'd be interested, let me know! firstname.lastname@example.org
Codecademy is a great place to start learning to code. It has a lot of free courses that'll teach you the basics of programming. They also have a lot of paid courses if you're looking to learn more advanced topics.
FreeCodeCamp is has thousands of videos, articles, and interactive coding lessons - all freely available to the public. They also have thousands of study groups around the world.
