While I’ve done web-related work for quite some time now, I’ve always stayed away from coding. I don’t know why I’ve stayed away from it, maybe because it’s intimidating, maybe because it’s not as interesting to me.
That said, I think it’s time to learn new things. This old dog can be taught new tricks!
In all seriousness, this is a skill that is sought after, a skill that is important, a skill that is crucial to everything else on the web. I think it’s time to expand my knowledge, if for nothing else than to understand the basic fundamentals that are the skeleton of the internet.
Over the next month or so, I have taken it upon myself to learn basic code though a nifty site called Codecademy. It’s an awesome free service that allows you to learn code in a fun, easy way. I know I sound like I’m selling this, but I have no relationship with them, I’ve just heard some really great things.
I’ll keep you all posted on how I do with this. Wish me luck!
