What is coding?
Coding is the act of creating a set of actions or words "code" that tell a
computer what to do. There are programs that allow you to write code, creating games or directions for a computer.
Important to know:
There are many ways to code (see below) but know that you need to be willing to take risks, try and sometimes fail and try again, as well as follow directions! BUT most importantly, have fun trying new things!
Here are some great sites to get started in learning to code:
