What does it all mean?
What does it all mean?

When people think about computer science, they imagine people with pocket protectors and thick glasses who code all night. The truth is coding is now in every day life, with the explosion of mobile devices and development of applications it is hard not to have an understanding of coding and everyone should at least give it a go! Coding is shaping the devices we interface on a daily basis and never has the freedom to learn coding been more open. This is the aim of Code Academy. www.codecademy.com

If you have ever had a desire to code and do not know where to start this is the place to go, it is an online learning portal where you can learn languages such as Java script, J Query, PHP, Python, Ruby, API programming, IOS development and much more. Further to the online tutorials and excellent built in programming tools the aim of this site is to develop a community of both learners and teachers exchanging best practices.

I have embarked on learning Ruby and I must say it is quite addictive, the website allows you to put in the practice as you learn either in the web browser or dedicated application such as “Hackety Hack” which I am currently using to learn Ruby.

My experience of this so far is really positive and as a tech guy it is good to learn the foundations of a language I have never had the chance to use before. In my line of work we are encouraged to learn about applications and all aspects of their internal workers. Code Academy allows me to do this and also understand how these applications are constructed and to speak on a level with other coders.

If you have ever thought an App was good or wanted to know how something was put together I encourage you to visit this site and give it a go! www.codecademy.com/
