You should learn to code” is something you’ve probably heard half a dozen times in the last 2 months- from articles, videos, and even Barack Obama’s YouTube Page.
Typically these messages are centered on what you can do in the future, which is nice, but the future isn’t happening yet. I’m writing this blog to share a few things that learning just a little bit of code can help you with right now, especially if you have a business.

If you’ve ever worked with a software developer, you know that the hardest part of this relationship is explaining exactly what you want that person to do.

Our business is right in the thick of the learning-to-code movement, and we’ve seen huge results from business owners who managed to learn some programming. Hopefully this blog has inspired you to learn some code so that you can see what everyone is talking about.
