This Sumo took programming courses in high school for a few reasons:
1) I thought it would be frickin’ cool to build my own applications.
2) The money I could make at the time was a huge motivator.
3) I could be a geek with a lot of money and in turn get TONS of dates.
(Hey, it was a nice afterthought, OK?)
So I did my bit, starting off with Visual Basics and it was fun... to an extent.
After the first quarter though, my interest dropped off.
My mind couldn’t wrap around all the concepts and syntax and I couldn’t stop giggling at the word boolean. Not sure why...
Not only that but I decided to learn C+ on my own, and finally after 9 months of semicolons, parentheses, and brackets, I couldn't take it anymore!
It was soooo damn booooooring!
Not that what I was learning was boring, but the method to learning it all couldn't hold my attention long enough for me to absorb the information.
So I quit.
And I regret it... horribly... because now I’m so far behind but I still want to learn to code.
If only I had started when there were courses like the ones being offered at Code School.
Where the hell have these been all my life?!?
Code School got it right. They made learning how to code ACTUALLY fun and more engaging by turning their courses into, well, sort of a game.
Here’s an example of how it works:
Each time you level up, you get rewards and badges for your effort.
I tried out that course in CoffeeScript (free for members) and I’m hooked. I’ve never felt such satisfaction in answering questions correctly and actually remembering what I learned.
You have got to try this out, Sumo-ling!
It’s like getting a gold star: It makes you feel good and want to keep learning.
Exactly what I needed in my early days.
So this Sumo thought it would be a good idea to help you rekindle your interest in coding, and we’ve bundled together a few courses to help you get started.
What comes in this Code School bundle:
Normally all three of these courses would kick your wallet in the face for $110 but this Sumo SQUASHED the price down to $59!
You can get your courses TODAY for this Sumo-only price but it’s for a limited time only so you’ll want to hurry before the price inflates back up to $110!
