Code Year
"And lucky you, this is just the year to do it. It is Code Year, actually, according to Code Academy, which helps people learn to code. “Sign up for Code Year to start receiving a new interactive programming lesson every Monday,” touts the web site, and “You’ll be building apps and websites before you know it!” I tried out the first few lessons, and it strikes me as a gentle way to learn to program. The lessons are small, focused, and introduce concepts with demonstrations that are easy to understand. It is therefore likely your best chance to learn to code if you aren’t in school.
