Ask DN: Should I learn to code?

    Yes, you should learn. Places to start: - treehouse - codecademy - if you're interested in iOS, I thought Rob Percival's tutorial on Udemy was helpful

    Figure out a project you want to do. Pick whatever language you think would be good to learn (I'd recommend javascript). Learn the nuts and bolts through the resources above. Leverage stackoverflow / google when you get stuck.

    If you want to do a web app, I found to be super fast to stand something up. They also have tutorials on their site to help you learn the basics.

      I've used Treehouse in the past, I thought it was pretty good. Codeacademy I'll take a look at too.

      Javascript would be the language I'd go for I reckon, thanks for the advice John :-)
