This Week in Learn to Code: 3/20/2015

Welcome to “This Week in Learn to Code!” If you’ve already begun to learn, this is a chance to pat yourself on the back for having made a great choice. If you haven’t started yet, now is a great time to start!

1. You might just really enjoy writing code!

This is a great article about Omoloro Oyegoke, an engineer for Konga Online Shopping Ltd. Most interviews with CS engineers try to really dive into the nitty gritty about the benefits of learning to code — Omoloro’s refreshing take is that he enjoys it and he had an aptitude for it.

2. It’s a great way to refresh your career!

This article is about Kristi Riordan, COO at a coding school in New York City. She speaks to the career benefits that professionals can get from switching to a more technical career and from simply learning to code to help them in their current roles.

3. The robots are coming!

This week, Amazon was granted an airworthiness certificate from the FAA, which means they can begin testing their super cool delivery drones. Keep your eyes on the sky!

What kind of robots would you like to program? Why are you motivated to learn to code? Let us know in the comments or by reaching out to us on twitter @codehs!
