Learn to make beautiful web pages, and master coding concepts with byte sized lessons in Encode : Learn to Code.
Programming, coding, writing strings – it all seems like Greek and Latin to me. I’ve never studied computer languages and the very thought of starting now gives me the shivers. But thankfully, there are many apps in the marketplace that offer newbies like me a fair opportunity to learn coding without becoming overwhelmed.

The advantage with learning coding through apps is that you don’t have to invest in expensive classes or purchase big fat books. One app that launched a couple of months ago that recently caught me attention is Encode: Learn to code. The app teaches you how to code in small byte sized lessons so that you gradually get accustomed to the world of computer programming. Here’s a little more about the app.
Encode : Learn to Code in Byte Sized Lessons
Encode is free to download but you only get access to a small section of content. To get the full value of the app, you need to unlock it with a single one-time purchase.

The coding lessons are interactive in nature. You start with learning to add, multiply and divide numbers in code, then move on to write strings, store and access variables, do a compound assignment and so on. The lessons are quite basic and streamlined. They do afford newbies the opportunity to build the basic foundation for future lessons, but might be too simplistic for others who have some knowledge of coding.
The second section of the app is called Web. In this topic, you learn to craft well structured and stylish web pages using HTML and CSS. It also has a number of lessons that will help you get started in web designing. Again, nothing too comprehensive here.
Encode offers a decent way to learn something on your mini-breaks and commutes. The learning style is easy and engaging. However, this is still very basic and to unlock the full value of the lessons, you need to spend as much as $4.99.
If that is something within your budget, you can check out the App. There are free lessons to get you started so you can try before you buy.

Do you think Encode is too simplistic or is this app a perfect launch-pad for newbies? I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.
