I just finished my two hours of coding and I am actually quite impressed with what I managed to get through in such a short amount of time. This was the first time I have actually had a hands on experience with coding (other than a bit when it came to good old MySpace). Below is an image of how far I managed to get before my eyes started to bulge:
Overall, it was really easy to get the hang of other than a few hang-ups towards the end when it came to switching the font color. I really anticipated it to be more difficult than it was and it made me want to delve further into my new Codecademy account. I actually enjoyed the process of some of it and it was fun to actually see what I was doing as I was changing the codes.
As a college student who is attempting to make my resume “stand out” it would certainly be an excellent addition to my list of technical skills. Basic coding skills are practically a necessity when it comes to applying for jobs. I wish the business students here at Western were required to take a course in coding. That being said, I plan on taking some time to go through many more exercises on Codecademy!
