Learn to Code

Introduction#

I think everyone should learn how to code, or at least the basics of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. One course in web programming can already teach us a lot about how the internet works, enable us to share more information on the internet, and help us customize products to our preferences.

Did you know

According to one survey, less than 12% of software developers in the United States identify as women. The percentages in other countries are even less.

Resources#

Learning#

There are plenty of free resources for learning the basics of how to code.

If you are in college, you may also have access to LinkedIn Learning, which I have found to be very useful.

Accessibility#

It is important to build products that are accessible by as many people as possible. Not everyone has the same physical abilities or access to the same tools, but everyone deserves equal access to public information. HTML5 has many built-in features that can help improve accessibility, but individual developers need to check that their websites and products are accessible.
