Episode 1058

Nick from Northridge, CA

Nick recently got certified for a job in IS and he's thinking about learning how to code. Leo says that's a great skill to have. But it'll be another year or two of your life spent learning what you need to know. But it's not only fun, but it can be quite lucrative, especially in the mobile world. There's a great book on learning to code called "How to Design Programs." It will teach you the fundamentals of programming. There's also a great coding language called Scheme, which you can download for free.
