10 places where anyone can learn to code!

When I started my code journey I began by collecting as many articles and resources as possible. So here I am sharing my collection. One of the first articles I read was a TED article “10 places where anyone can learn to code!” This put in my mind my starting point. Like in this article, I would be referred to as a “digital native” growing up with computers around me. The resources in this article are where I started with my students.
