Teach yourself to write computer code

"Codecademy, a startup that uses interactive online lessons to turn anyone into a computer programmer, has signed up 97,000 students in less than 48 hours for its New Year’s resolution class Code Year. That’s more than twice as many students as were enrolled in the 150 U.S. computer science undergraduate programs that the Computer Research Association surveyed last year." according to an article on Mashable.

The Atlantic Wire describes the course as a cross between Math Blaster and Foresquare.

The course is free.  Add your name to the email list at Codecademy, and new programming lessons each week by email.  This video gives you an idea of how the web site works:
