I like to keep up on my computer skills. I used to do web design fairly often, and I maintain my HTML and CSS skills in my job at the journal, but I’ve kinda always wanted to learn JavaScript. So I decided that I will tackle JavaScript in 2015. 

In order to do so, I obviously had to do some research. I found a really awesome site that not only helps you learn to code in JavaScript, but also helps out nonprofit organizations at the same time! 

Welcome to freeCodeCamp, where you can learn to code for free! When you arrive, I suggest checking out the main page and About page. Then you’ll definitely want to check out the first challenge video because it walks you through how the site works in under two minutes. 

Ready to sign up? If at the end of the video you click the completion button it will ask you to sign in to save your progress; you also have the option of clicking the  Start Learning to Code (It’s Free) button on the main page, or the Sign In button at the top of the page. You can choose to sign in with your Google +, Facebook, Twitter, or Linked In account. They also provide an option for logging in with an e-mail address. I chose to use Facebook. 

What I love about how this learning environment is how it is structured. I love that it strikes out the challenges I’ve completed like a to do list, and lets me keep track of my progress. I also love that it is self-paced, so I can go at the speed I want and not have to wait for others to catch up, or for the next section to be released. 

I also really love that you’re learning a marketable skill. There are a lot of jobs that require coding and learning it will just beef up your resume! Go check it out for yourself today.

    Thanks for the advice Amanda. I found this online article http://www.interwebcom.com/best-free-online-resources-for-learning-how-to-program/ where I first read about FreeCodeCamp and I started to do a reseach. The video is very useful. Finally there is someone who’s helping the newbies
