Ever wanted to learn how to code but didn’t know where to start? A new site is making it easy for you.

‘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. ‘
I signed up for it and completed the first lesson last night. The cool thing about it is it teaches you the concepts by not only telling you what needs to be done but by having you actually do it in the built-in text editor. The lessons build on simple coding foundations one by one and then slowly combine them until you’re writing simple code without thinking about it. It’s that same teaching technique that has made Rosetta Stone so successful for learning different languages.
If you want to give it a try check out CodeYear.com and sign up. I havn’t found any catches so far. You just sign up, and they send you the lessons via email, it doesn’t get more straight forward than that. Obviously there are many benefits to having some coding knowledge within our industry.
Also, thanks to Morgan Linton for pointing this out on his blog a few weeks ago. I wouldn’t know about this if it wasn’t for that. And, I hope he doesnt mind, but I jacked the screen shot above from his post too…every time I try to upload a photo today it’s crashing my browser for some reason.
