Do you want to learn how to code?

Have you ever wanted to learn how to code but not known where to go? The internet is a master tool and there is so many different places that you can learn so many different things. So we’ve put together 5 pretty good places to go if you want to learn about the wonderful world of code.
So without further ado, happy coding!

  1. Code Academy

This is a particularly good place to start if you’re going in knowing very little to none. The site covers all kinds of things like HTML, CSS, Javascript, jQuery, Python, Ruby and PHP. The courses are well structured and in many cases split up into small sections that make it easy to understand and follow along.

The site also provides different metrics like time commitment, and others to help you get a better understanding of what you’re signing up for. Now you won’t come out of the courses being able to code yourself a self-aware AI program, but you will get some benefit out of it.

The interactive portal lets you take lessons as well as get feedback and instruction appearing alongside as you go along.

Codecademy is also free it’s a great way of working out whether this coding is for you before you head on for tougher things.

  1. Udacity

This is one of the more known massive online open courses, and the content is available meaning that you can tutor yourself at the pace you see fit for yourself. There are short videos with quizzed and activities that help you along the way.

Most of the content is free, but there is a fee if you want one on one help or if you want to take part in the interactive part of the course.

Some courses are funded by corporate sponsors; Google has built the Android app development one, for example. This platform isn’t perfect for everyone but it would be good to check out.
