Curious about programming?


If you or your kids are curious about programming and you want to get your toes wet, you should check out Codecademy. It’s a website that teaches some of the basics in an interactive way. It’s very new and so at the moment only teaches the basics of Javascript (the language used in to make websites interactive) but if you are just wanting to get a taste of programming, then Javascript is a great place to start. You don’t need to sign in to try it out, but if you do, you can earn medals as you go along. This is a screenshot of my account showing my completed lessons…

If you do decide give it a try, I’d love to hear about it.
