What to do about fleeting passion

Gorgeous article by one of my newest heroes. Heaven knows I struggle with wanting to do everything, and these are some very wise words.

Coding. Dun dun DUN.

codecademy-logoSo I started on Codeacademy a million years ago, forgot about it, and have since been only vaguely aware of its existence. HOWEVER. With my newfound determination to learn all the things, I am picking it back up. Most of this I’m sure will be either redundant or very basic by the time I reach a point where I can create real, honest-to-goodness websites, but I gotta start somewhere!

If you’re unfamiliar with the site, Codeacademy is a free resource for those wanting to learn HTML/CSS, Javascript, PHP, Python, Ruby, and APIs. If you don’t know what half of those are (Java’s the one with the coffee mug that wants to update, like, every 48 hours, right?) high five. I don’t either. But I will.

Coding can be super useful if, say, you want to get into designing blog templates. Hmm, there’s a thought. New bucket list item?

Here’s a question for you vet coders out there. What should I know as a beginner? Any good resources to check out?
