Of all the skills that could help you or your teens land great careers, knowing how to code is one of the best. Right now there are more jobs for people who can write code than there are people who can do it. So why not learn, especially when you can learn to code for free and online at Codecademy.

What can you learn at Codecademy? You will learn what you need to know to build websites, apps and games. There are tracks for:

  • JavaScript – basics, apps, games
  • HTML and CSS for Beginners – webpages
  • Python – variety of interactive applications
  • Ruby – many useful applications
  • jQuery – interactive websites and web animations
  • Projects – combine HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery to make personalized web applications
  • Code Year – tour of important technologies
There are also individual courses that are not part of a track. You can learn almost anything needed to code whatever you desire at Codecademy. And you can do it on your own time. You can take your lessons whenever you want. There are no scheduled times.

Would you like to have your teens take these classes with friends at school?. Codecademy offers after-school programming. Go to the Codecademy Afterschool page and fill in your email and school and it could happen, just as it has in thousands of schools already.

I am just beginning the HTML course and it is presented in a way that anyone can understand. There is no reason not to take these classes. Coding is an extremely useful skill and at Codecademy you can learn how to code for free, at home, and whenever is convenient to you. It is win-win-win-win!

  2. I would love to take a css and Html class. Everything I learned, I taught myself. A little knowledge is very dangerous.
