We hear that the future belongs to those who can code. But many of us don’t know how to code, and fear losing out in an increasingly technical world. We’ll debunk some common fears and misunderstandings about code, consider a learning framework, and find resources to help out along the way. We’ll talk about learning to code in a WordPress context, with its specific challenges and opportunities. We’ll also talk about some of my personal coding failures through the years, and think about how we can turn would-be failures into learning opportunities. By the end of the presentation, you’ll have a simple set of steps and a list of resources to help you learn to code.
