Sign up for an account with http://www.codecademy.com

Some tips for using Codeacademy:
-Take your time. Pace yourself. It will take between two and eight hours depending on how familiar you are with HTML/CSS.
-You need a reasonably fast connection to the internet.
-If you are at work or school or using some shared wireless access point, note that some networks use firewalls or proxies that can interfere with your connection. Rowan should fine.
-Update your browser to the latest version. Chrome or Firefox are best.
-If you encounter bugs, go to the forums for that particular lesson. Often you will find that others have encountered the same problem and a way to work around it. Part of learning code is figuring out how to make things work.

About Nick DiUlio

My name is Nick DiUlio, a freelance writer and editor from New Jersey. I have been passionate about the craft of writing since I was old enough to spell, and this love has led to a successful career in journalism and creative nonfiction. As a freelancer, I have covered a wide range of topics and personalities, as my published work has focused on everything from profiles of artists and important political figures to hard-news stories with both national and local appeal; from restaurant and beverage reviews to tips on fashion and finance; from health and wellness pieces to celebrity Q&A’s. My work has appeared in several local, regional and national publications—both in print and online—including Philadelphia Magazine, Slate.com, Miller-McCune, New Jersey Monthly, Eating Well, and Delaware Today. Additionally, I am the South Jersey Bureau Chief for New Jersey Monthly and an adjunct journalism professor at Rowan University. To be sure, the broadness of my body of work seems only to be matched by my boundless interest in almost every subject imaginable (except Warren Zevon). Check out some of my most recently published work here.
