Okay, I have a confession to make. Though I’ve helped write example queries, created wireframes for webpages and heck, even toyed around with our API Explorer, I’ve never written a single line of code. Not terribly surprising for a marketer; however, after hanging out with the chimps for the past six months, I felt like it was finally about time to learn something. But where to start? Would I really have the time to commit to a regular weekly class? Could I make myself curl up with an O’Reilly book on PHP or Ruby with other more pressing projects looming? Clearly, the only way I could make this a priority is for it to be fun!
While, this might not sound like much to the hardcore programmers out there, for a marketer who had never written a lick of code in her life as of an hour ago, Codecademy is a pretty rad resource. Share it with your programming-novice friends and see what they think. Or, contribute to their lesson plans and get more folks coding!
