Code is more than just ones and zeroes. Code is a creative process that lets you express yourself, reach other people, generate art, and make stuff in new ways every day.
Hi! I'm Kevin!
By day I'm a software engineer at Google, and by night I teach at Millersville University.
By later night I maintain this site. I do this for free, in my spare time, just for fun.
I'm a person, not a company!
I support diversity in tech, and I believe I have a responsibility to open the door for new coders- especially those who feel unwelcome, or who might not know how fun it is. Happy Coding is my attempt to show new folks a path from the fundamentals of coding, to every concept I've learned about so far.
I love talking about all of this stuff, so please come say "hello world" on the forum!
Check out the newest tutorials, hot off the press!
I believe the internet can be better than what big tech companies have turned it into. Happy Coding is my attempt to create the kind of website I wish I saw more of: a place for people to learn and connect without living in the shadow of a big tech company.
Happy Coding is ad-free!
Why do websites want to show notifications anyway?
No shady SEO, no dark patterns, no engagement hacks.
Every tutorial and article is written by a real life human: me!
I post about stuff I'm genuinely interested in, not what I think will get clicks.
I'm doing this for fun, not for shareholder profit.
Happy Coding is open source. You can use anything you find on Happy Coding, as long as you link back here.
If that resonates with you, I'd love to hear from you on the Happy Coding Forum!
Code along with some of my favorite tutorials!
Most importantly, Happy Coding is a community of people learning and creating together.
