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

All programming syntax will require memorizing. Difference with HTML is that much of it is only memorizing and not much else.

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?

I just saw a tweet from @Chase:
There’s a 3:1 gap between computing jobs and students in the field.
Live forever or die trying.

Sure, to the learn what the tags are is just memorization, but learning how to use them properly and creating a well designed page takes a lot more...

NIME. For pure HTML, I was able to pick up on that easily enough just by playing around and getting some experience. I think the real learning is needed for implementing JavaScript, CSS, and other the scripts necessary to build a site.

So we're not really arguing.
It doesn't take much to learn "html," but it does take a lot to learn how to use it well.
