Learning to code

Screen Shot 2014-11-22 at 12.02.44 PMGoing through the levels of HTML and CSS on CodeAcademy.com was my first experience doing any type of coding, so I was at a beginner level. Looking at the lines of code I was supposed to learn was really intimidating, but the program broke up the skills into different levels and gave step by step instructions of what to do, which made it easier than I thought it would be. Actually writing the code was not hard, it just took me a while to memorize what every symbol and command meant. In light of all we have learned in the Women and Technology class this semester about how coding literacy will be helpful in the future, I would definitely use Code Academy to learn more and get more experience. It was intimidating, but easy to do once I got started and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning to code. You do not need any prior knowledge about the subject to learn how to do it and the step by step instructions are very helpful and make the process very doable, so it is a great place for people, like myself, who have no experience.
