Trying to learn to code can become really difficult. But if you know just where to look for amazing resources that can help you figure this out, it becomes strangely easier. Now for those who don't read titles sometimes... I'm going to tell you how to use Codecademy, an amazing website that can teach you how to code simply and easily. Lifehacker has already wrote a post a while back about this site, but I think it's time to give a small refresh.

The site has a slight redesign from the original post on Lifehacker, so I'll just walk you through on how to get it set up. Don't worry! It's not too hard. You'll want to stay on the start page, and click on Log In. Now, if you choose you can sign in using Google, Facebook, or Twitter. If you don't want to use these however, then you may go ahead and create an account not linked to anything. I went ahead and signed in with my Google account, just to save the time for me. Assuming you've created an account and everything, you'll want to just click on the Learn button on the top left. Once there, about 8 different choices of programming languages come up. All of these are available to you to try and learn, so from here you can start digging into the site! Although, in my personal opinion, I'm currently learning Python right now, because of how easy it is, but still full of features. Before I forget, here is a quick little snapshot of what you look at when you are learning all of this stuff.

Now, before I finish this post, actual people write this stuff. People that know how to code really well write these lessons. In the bottom left corner, there is a small Q&A Forum, where you can ask the person who wrote the lesson any questions you may have about something. There is also the Glossary, which covers the terms and pieces of code you will learn on Codecademy. There is additional websites that do teach you how to code, but I prefer Codecademy for its ease of use and simplicity. Well, there you have it. If you want to learn Coding, then Codecademy is what I recommend.
