I am not a coder… Never have been. I simply don’t have the brain. I think you either have a coding brain or you don’t. That said, I would love to learn more about it, if not to write it but to have a better understanding of it. In my line of work, its used everywhere… and it would be nice to know what some of the geeks (I mean Devs) are actually talking about.
I came across this site via a link to advertising campaigns (on Mashable). The ad features some well known people (Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg… Will.i.am??) talking about how they got into coding and how it changed their lives. I am not after something that profound, I simply want to rebuild my website and others in ways I understand. So when I delved deeper after watching the video, I came across Code.org which in turn led to a learning portal:
I’ve yet to play properly with it, but it seems a good resource for learning the basics & maybe more. And hell, if I finally DO understand code, I might invent the next Facebook!… Oh who am I kidding! 🙂
