The Machine Podcast: Ep 02 Advice On How To Start Coding

Science

On The second episode of The Machine podcast, Rob and his guests discuss how a beginner can learn to code.

Following on from the last podcast in which the panel attempted to describe what programming is, this time the same group (Siobhan Drohan, Eamon De Leastar, Mairead Meagher and Rob O’Connor) talk about how a complete beginner can dip their toe in the world of coding. During the discussion, they mention a number of (mostly) free tools that you can find at the links below, presented in the order in which they appear (we think!):

Code.org (Hour of Code) - studio.code.org/courses 
Processing - processing.org

Free Coding Camp - www.freecodecamp.org 
Stack Overflow - stackoverflow.com
