If you???re looking for a New Year???s resolution, let me suggest an idea that you might not have considered: You should learn computer programming. Specifically, you should sign up for Code Year, a new project that aims to teach neophytes the basics of programming over the course of 2012. Code Year was put together by Codecademy,* a startup that designs clever, interactive online tutorials. Codecademy???s founders, Zach Sims and Ryan Bubinski, argue that everyone should know how to program???that learning to code is becoming as important as knowing how to read and write. I concur. So if you don???t know how to program, why not get started this week? Come on, it???ll be fun!
