Learn to Code in 2012

Did you make a New Year’s resolution to finally learn how to program? If you did, or if you think you should’ve, Code Academy launched a free Javascript learning experience: Code Year.

Code Year is different from learning from a book. Each lesson requires you to write a bit of code, and you can’t move on to the next lesson until your code is correct. Hints are available if you get stuck, and if you get really stuck you can ask questions in the forums. It’s fast paced enough that you feel like you’re actually learning something, but there’s no so much work that you can’t get it done on the side of your full time job.

Each week, you’ll get an email reminding you to go through that week’s lesson. You can also join the , or even better, head to HacDC and work on the lessons at {S,Th}oftware Thursdays.
