Learning to Code, Part 2

I’m still explor­ing Codecad­e­my, which has proven to be a very inter­est­ing site.

I made it through their JavaScript Fun­da­men­tals and found that I want­ed to know more, so I start­ed on their Code Year project, which picks up right after that with JavaScript Con­di­tion­als. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, I seem to have hit a bug­gy les­son on the third sec­tion of that area and am wait­ing for a response from their peo­ple as to why my code is work­ing and return­ing a cor­rect answer but their auto­mat­ed sys­tem still says, “Oops! Try again.” From their Q&A forum, it seems that quite a few peo­ple have had trou­ble with that lesson.

So I decid­ed to regroup and see what else they offer. I men­tioned in the ear­li­er post that I need­ed to update my HTML skills, so I moved on to that part of the site. I cer­tain­ly learned to cre­ate web pages before CSS days, so I need­ed to learn a lot more about that, too, and I am. I’ve got­ten through the HTML por­tion and the first CSS sec­tion, and I don’t see any of that as wast­ed time.

At this point, I would hap­pi­ly rec­om­mend Codecad­e­my to any­one who wants to learn the basics of cre­at­ing a web­site. I feel that I’m learn­ing the basics of pro­gram­ming, but I’m not far enough along to opine about that bit yet. We’ll see whether or not that issue is resolved in a time­ly man­ner, first.

There are cer­tain­ly oth­er alter­na­tives, but that’s what I’ve learned in the last 24 hours.
