Learn to Code for Free
For the unfamiliar, code, or computer coding, is basically the set of instructions the computer follows in order to perform certain tasks. The code is composed in some kind of human-readable language of the computer, such as HTML.
Coding allows you to create webpages and content from scratch and gives you more operational freedom. Since having the ability to write code is so important and intrinsic to computer function, more and more people want to learn how to do it.
President Obama, for example, became the first U.S. President to write a computer program.
"It was a very simple program-all it does is draw a square on a screen-but that's the point. All programming starts simple. No one starts by creating a complicated game," said Hadi Partovi, co-founder Code.org.
