Coding is something I wished I learned during my freshman year of college. When I started my first semester I knew I wanted to go into marketing but I wasn’t sure which direction I wanted to go in. I’ve been really leaning towards digital or social media marketing. As I’ve been applying for internships I noticed that a lot companies require interns to know basic coding or SQL and other analytic programs. I had no idea what these things were because I did not learn them from any of my classes nor was I a computer science major. However, thanks to the internet and its many resources I just googled sites on what coding is and where to learn it.
The reason I started to learn coding because it’s a good skill to put on my resume to increase my chances of getting hired. Not only that, digital marketing and social media marketing require knowledge on basic HTML and CSS. I wish I knew that earlier in my college career but it’s never too late to learn a new skill.
From a bloggers aspect, I’m still new to blogging and I want to learn how to customize my site the way I want it to look. We also live in a technology driven world an I think its pretty useful to know these kind of things.
Learning code is like learning a new language. My experience with coding so far has been going well. After the semester is over I will have more time to learn more. It’s not too Difficult to understand after you’ve practiced a few times but for anyone who is interested in learning code should definitely look into it. Down below I posted the links to the sites I use and other resources that I found on Pinterest.
