Ruby it is! – Picking a Language to Learn

Picking up from my last post, I have decided upon Ruby as the computer programming language to learn this year.  CodeAcademy has an ‘Introduction to Ruby’ course that is low-key enough to work on during a tea-break or long phone call.

I’ll be trying out this 20 minute Ruby Tutorial once the course is completed.  Also, this site listing a number of resources looks useful – iwanttolearnruby.

 

 

Mini-Goal#1? Learn Basic Coding

I am finally getting around to starting on my mini-goal for 2016 (Hello April!), which is to learn basic coding.

I began with CodeAcademy’s free javascript introductory course.

What did I learn to do? I animated my name.

Now, I’d like something much more challenging so I am looking at exploring one of the back-end languages like Ruby, Python or Java.

Here’s the Quora Answer that I am referencing  as well as the long-list of coding resources that are completely free.

Will post an update as soon as I select a new language to learn during the mini-goal adventure.
