Not sure if it was mentioned yet but Codecademy is pretty great.

They have a simple introduction to program concepts and then they have specific courses for web (HTML) and JavaScript.

http://www.codecademy.com

Looks great so far

Thanks

Everyone talks about how coding is the future and that they should teach it in schools etc.
Is it really necessary to know code or will it remain a specialty field?  Even if IT is a growing field, is it easy to find good jobs or do you have to be a genius at it to compete?

"IT" is a very general term.  But as long as 1) you do not stop at "basic" knowledge/certification; and 2) you are willing to start at the "bottom floor" salary, then IMO it can be be a lucrative job when a person builds experience.

Apples and oranges. Code academy is good for pure basics but won't get you far and Lynda is more comprehensive.

I started codeacademy last night and really like it. Though HTML seems to be a lot of memorizing.
Gotta start somewhere...
