How to get started

There is no right or wrong way to start learning code!

If you have never done code before I would recommend starting with something like tutorials Code.org or Scratch Jr. app. Both use a building block approach, rather than having to type in the code you can fit the coding blocks together like Legos. Several of the other resources listed also use a building block approach. 

When you are ready to take the next step you can look at creating a Scratch or Tynker account and start creating more complex games or animations. The last step to is trying something like Bitsbox where you now become responsible for typing in each line of code. 

Good luck and have fun!
