You can really learn anything online for free. That includes computer coding. Which isn't intimidating when it's fun.
Computer coding is a skill that employers are looking for right now. So, it's valuable to know how to do it, or at least know the basics of a coding language or two.
On Codecademy, you can take free online classes in HTML & CSS (create websites), Ruby (apps), and more.
Sign up with Facebook or your email address to start your first class. The lessons can be quick and to the point, or somewhat involved. You'll get words of encouragement like, "Way to go!," when you input correct coding, or "Oops," when it's wrong.
