As we begin 2015, many of us will be setting our New Year’s resolutions. But why set those same old goals like ‘exercising more’, or (Heaven forbid!) ‘cutting down on caffeine’, when you could be doing something worthwhile that you will actually stick to!
Learning a new skill is a fantastic aim to have when starting the year, and we recommend learning to code! Programming skills are highly desirable, infinitely useful, and most importantly, fun to learn and practice.
