Connected – Episode 12 by Connected on Mixcloud


If you’re looking to learn a new skill for the new year, and fancy something a bit techy – at Connected we’re recommending looking at CodeAcademy. You can learn Javascript and HTML, it’s got a nice way of going teaching you through practice and is really accessible for beginners. We’ll be giving it a go here on Connected – so let us know how you do!
