Codecademy: Back to Basics

Posted by | Professional Development, Resources, Web Design, Web Development | No Comments

Technology is always updating at seemingly breakneck speeds. Lately I felt like I needed a refresher on the basics so I started playing around with Codecademy and I’m really enjoying it! You can even track progress and share with friends, like my profile here. Since most of my knowledge was self-taught and through experience, I this is a great way to remind myself to avoid bad habits.

Running through basic courses on Codecademy really helped remind me of some of the fundamental concepts behind HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and jQuery, and has helped introduce me to Ruby and Python. It seems everything these days is all about data, so learning at least a little Ruby and Python should help me better understand some of the products I manage. PHP is great, and I’m already quite familiar with it, but it’s far less exciting of a language than Ruby and Python. Just the same, Codecademy has been a great chance to refresh the basics and explore new programming languages. Some of their courses have some interesting bugs, but they have a good Q&A section that provides answers to problems based on what people have already run into.
