As a self taught coder I’m always looking to polish up my skills, so I’ve signed up for Code Year, a service supported by Y Combinator, TechStars, Girl Develop It and Hack NY. They send a free weekly interactive lesson in coding via email which promises to have you up and coding quickly.
I may or may not chronicle it here, as I obviously already use this site for coding goodness (ok, mostly testing WordPress hacks and new plugins) but I want to spread the word about this project. Increasingly I re-quote Douglas Rushkoff to prospective clients and friends – learn to program or be programmed. As with making things that matter, I believe the more you know the more employable and happy you are.
If you sign up, let me know!
