New Year’s Resolution – Learning to Code

I have never been big on New Year’s resolutions as most people abandon them by the end of January. I only set things I intend to actually follow through on. In 2009 my resolution was to work out more often and lose weight. I managed to lose 30 pounds that year and started running (and look how that has gone since). I have avoided a resolution until this year, but it is time to try again.

I have had little bits and pieces of programming experience here and there, but nothing formal and never amounting to anything actually useful. So for 2015 my resolution is to finally learn to code for real. By the end of the year my goal is to have a simple, but functional iOS app available in the App Store. I don’t even know what it will be yet, but something I can point to and declare this resolution successful.

I figure it would also be fun to document the process here. Not to mention the side benefit of publicly forcing myself to stick to it. I am going to start at the very beginning, no previous experience. So time to fire up Lynda.com and get to work.
