Learning how to code has always been a to-do on my list, so this year I'm doing Codecademy's Code Year. It's free, and I like it because it sends you lessons on a weekly basis, so it's not overwhelming. I don't know how much you want to learn, but at the very least, it's (or so far seems like) a good introduction.
Garry told me to use codecademy too!  Have you started it yet?  I should start soon....
Yep, I've started. Pretty good so far!
