Technology Tuesday: Codecademy

{Note: This was supposed to post on Tuesday, June 4th.  Apparently Publish Failed, and I am just now getting it out of my Draft-box.}
I know it's late, but it's still Tuesday.  Some months ago I thought I might start talking about Technology occasionally on Tuesday.  Today, I want to mention a website called Codecademy.  It's a free, online resource for learning how to program.  I've been slowly working my way through the Python course, and I've learned a lot from it.  The site includes other languages for programming on the web.
If you are just beginning to code, or if you already know the basics and just want to pick up another language, Codecademy can help.
Also, especially if you are a student, no matter what gender or what major you want to go into, I strongly encourage you to learn the basics of coding.  It doesn't have to be something you love, it doesn't have to be something you do for a living.  In an increasingly automated society, learning to code can help you to "speak computer."  Computers are in your car, in your phone, and increasingly in other appliances.
