Resolve to learn how to code this year

I realize the new year is already a week old, but that means you’ve already broken your resolution, right? So here’s a new one: learn to code.

I was tipped off on this from Shana McDanold’s blog The Randomness That is Life, emailed to me by Sue Fensore.

For Code Year, you’ll be emailed a new lesson each week. The Code Year website states:

Make your New Year’s resolution learning to code. Sign up on Code Year to get a new interactive programming lesson sent to you each week and you’ll be building apps and web sites before you know it.

Oh, and it’s free.

If you’re interested in getting more lessons in code, Codecademy is a pretty great resource for that. It even shows your progress and gives you nifty badges for unlocking levels – kind of reminds me of a video game.
