CodeYear- The Easiest Way to Learn Coding!


OK, I will be the first one to admit that I am not a programmer and barely a “coder.” I know some HTML and Javascript- enough to make a few little helpful websites and web-based functions (like this citation generator). But I am also one of those people who love to learn new things- and learning some basics of programming could come in real handy for an educator who likes to explore with technology.

That’s where CodeYear (by Codecademy) comes in. If you sign up at this site, they will email you a new lesson every Monday to continue learning programming/coding basics. The nice thing is that you get to use their editor- no other programs to use, no compiling, etc. You start off learning Javascript, but can also progress to learn other languages:

You earn buttons for your profile to brag about how smart you are:

This site is a really nice setup to learn new languages in a non-threatening way. Oh, did I mention it’s FREE!

Give it a try!
