6 free ways to learn how to code


As an Ed Tech specialist, I am constantly looking for information about coding. I feel that I am still at the beginner stage, however I have spent hours playing around and experimenting with different codes to create new things. The biggest advantage to coding in my occupation is to automate certain tasks via scripting. However, coding does not come naturally to me and I am constantly looking for help online.
