So you want to learn more about coding? Well, you came to the right place. Last August Touro Graduate School of Technology offered a FREE coding workshop. We highlighted the perks of learning how to code in a previous blog.

Whether you're building a website for your own business or creating a program to help others start their first website, knowing how to code is square one and useful in many different fields. If the extra income isn't desirable then consider how learning code can sharpen your problem-solving skills! In the Lost Interview with Steve Jobs, Apple’s co-founder said, “I think everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer because it teaches you how to think.”

If you are looking to fine-tune your coding skills in order to propel your career forward, you should look into further education, in places such as Touro Graduate School of Technology, to help secure a future in this field. For those of you who are tech savvy or looking to pick up a new skill, there are options that will help you learn to code… for FREE!

Today we are going to highlight one of those options:

Codecademy.com

Codecademy is a site where you can “learn to code interactively, for free”. Whether it is HTML, JavaScript, or APIs, the Codecademy will give you the education you need and deserve. However, educators in the field advise not to jump too far ahead; Irina Berman, an instructor at Touro College Graduate School of Technology, states that users “have to start with HTML and CSS. That is step one.” Understanding programming concepts will help beginners with their coding journey. HTML and CSS are the baseline of creating websites by structuring and styling the site's pages. Codecademy's HTML Basics lesson has 14 steps, and prevents you from getting ahead of yourself. You only gain access to later steps once you have mastered the earlier lessons.

How can coding help you?
