Learning to code
So i’ve decided to take on the challenge of learning to code. I arrived at this decision after 12 years of dealing with software developers for my SaaS businesses. I finally realized that instead of bitching and complaining about how and to what extent they work, I could have put all that time & energy into just becoming one myself. Isn’t hindsight grand?
So after doing extensive research on which programming language to start with and what the best methods are to learn, I’ve decided to start by taking all the courses available at Code Academy. This should be a nice primer to determine if I have an aptitude for coding or if I’m going to utterly loathe it. Assuming I enjoy it, I plan to take more courses available at Tree House and then enroll for a course at Coursera.com and those available through iTunesU from Stanford, MIT & Harvard. My goal is to eventually assist in the development of a mobile application for my SaaS company. Then eventually help port our entire application to another development stack.
