Learning to Code with Codeacademy

By: Andrew Dury/Junior Writer


Coding is the process that allows people to create computer software, apps, and websites.  Code creates browser, OS, phone apps, Facebook, and this website.

There are many types of codes that all have different processes. The main three used today are JavaScript, Java, and SQL. Coding lets people create and maintain their own websites, apps, and software. It also allows people to expand their career options and opens them up to a whole new world of possibilities.

Being able to code looks wonderful on college and job applications.  It opens the horizon for positions in the military and civil workforce.

Coding seems to intimidate many people; most think it’s too hard, complex, and/or have difficulty finding resources on how to code, and that the courses takes up to much time. Those aren’t good excuses any more, and thanks to Codeacademy you can take free online courses in all of the major coding languages. It also teaches you how to create websites, apps, and software.

Codeacademy courses include Ruby on Rails Authentication, Learn the Command Line, Learn Git, Learn SQL, and SQL: Table Transformation. Coding is something that will be around for a long time. If you would like to lean the link is
