    I have been using Code School to learn the basics of coding for web based digital/interactive content. I have become quite proficient with HTML and CSS languages (efficiently read, write, organize and communicate) as a result of using Code School as an informal educational tool and will continue to strive for semantically superior awesomeness in every new project. I have also been learning the basics of JavaScript, Ruby on the Rails and Objective-C in order to push my skill set to a variety of applications.
