Why just 9 hours of coding class changed my whole outlook on technology – Philadelphia Business Journal


I learned this lesson when learning how to do HTML coding 15 or so years ago, and when I couldn’t absorb Javascript in a day! While tools have been created in the last 15 years to make creating a website more user-friendly and accessible to the masses, the science and art behind it all continues to get more complicated. (Trust me–I know. I’m married to a web developer.)  I’m thinking that I need to do this with some other languages, like update to learn HTML5, more XML-related stuff, or relearn Javascript, or PHP, or…something! It really does give you an appreciation for what full-time coders do, and I’m sure that if I learned some more, perhaps API documentation-related stuff would become easier for me to learn as well. 


Check out this article–good perspective.
