complete beginners (for you to explore what’s out there that you could be learning and find out for yourself if coding is for you)

experienced developers (for you to explore other technologies/languages you might currently not be familiar with, for example – machine learning, AI, graph databases, AngularJS, messaging bots and a whole range of other topics).
