Resolution: Learn to Code in 2012

I’m not a big fan of resolutions (One of Merlin Mann’s greatest posts makes a good argument as to why), but the folks at Codecademy have created a free program dedicated to teaching non-programmers how to code via weekly lessons. I don’t know how great these lessons will be, but if you’ve always wanted to get started learning to code, I imagine this would be a great place to start. (via)

I’d also check out Marco Arment’s thoughts on learning to code, as well as Gina Trapani’s1.
