I found a site where you, or your child, can learn to code for free. Wait, wait, don’t look away yet…coding is not that boring! According to Bill Gates, the creators of Facebook and Dropbox, and even will.i.am, coding is essential to modern students, yet most schools are not teaching it.
Since they noticed there is a huge need for coding yet an educational lack in teaching it, they created a non-profit website where you can learn computer coding for free.
A friend of mine owns a social media business, and he says programmers are in demand! I don’t know what our 16yo son is going to do after high school, but this is a skill he may as well have under his belt, so he is working through the free computer coding lessons at Code Academy.
Interested in going further with your coding knowledge? At the Codeacademy Lab, work on coding for free without downloading a program.
