What is the best way to learn how to code for beginners who have zero experience with writing code? I have a huge desire to learn and I want to know what the best place to start is.

Hi Tiana, I'd start with HTML/CSS and JavaScript which are relatively easy to learn and can get you going with web development. Why HTML/JavaScript? Well, HTML/CSS is super easy to learn and you get immediate feedback in your browser. JavaScript is more complicated, is now being used beyond the web browser (checkout Angular JS) and is pretty much platform independent--meaning you can actually write JScript code that will work on PC's, tablets/phones, etc...

Khan Academy has a great program for beginners. I've been teaching myself and my kids how to do this for about a month now. Another great place to start is through MIT. They have free course content that you can look through on your own time.

That would depend on what you want to code. Are you looking to learn coding in order to create websites? Or is it something more complex like writing software?

Thanks for the replies. At this point I just want to learn so that I can do all my own work on my blog, but in the future it might be nice to be able to write my own scripts and so on.

I would start with learning how a computer works, and then go to how a website works. Understanding that should give you a head start in learning how to code.
