There are some beautiful things about learning a programming language:

  1. You can create instead of just accepting what someone else gives you.
  2. It helps you troubleshoot problems with someone else’s applications.
  3. Computer languages are free, just like how no one charges you to speak English or Spanish.

The trouble is knowing where to start when learning a computer language.

Enter Codecademy.

It’s a brilliant website that walks you through step-by-step lessons on how to program and, more than that, has you try out the code as you read. The creators of Codecademy understand that doing something is a very effective way to learn something. Try it out. It’s free.
