Code Conquest Newsletter #11
May 1, 2013
We’d like to share our vision for Code Conquest.
We plan to turn it into the ultimate resource for people who want to learn code and/or become programmers. Up-to-date, extensive scope and depth, covering everything you need to know to get started in coding.
It will be multi-faceted – training recommendations, code tutorials, newsletter, discussion forum, useful links and information. Ultimately, we hope to get it to the point where it’s so useful that programmers and educators will be thankful for it and will want to recommend it.
We plan to transfer all our knowledge to this site so that you can benefit from it. It’s an ongoing project, and it’s not at that stage just yet. But here’s the first step we’re taking.
We’re kicking off May by adding 16 brand new coding articles to a new look Code Conquest.
Here’s the full list of new articles. You can either read them all, or just the ones that interest you the most.
