Making a Pledge to Learn to Code

BlogHer Original Post

Melissa Price-Mitchell at hellomelissa has decided to learn to code and she's found an online source (or two) where she can do just that. Check out these online resources.

When I was in high school. I could have taken a basic intro to computer programming course. I think it covered Pascal and Fortran, but I’d have to confirm that with Sean who did take the course. I thought programming would be too hard so I didn’t take it. I took a word processing course instead (WordPerfect in DOS! Don’t miss that!). That course – along with my journalism class that wrote and designed the school newspaper and yearbook for that year – put me on a path to my eventual career in graphic design and document layout. But now I’m kicking myself for not taking the programming course too.
