Be Like Mayor Bloomberg, Learn How to Code!

These days, you can’t just be a print journalist or publicist or good old media professional. You have to know how to take wonderful pictures, work in content management systems, and shoot Spielberg-quality video.

The next thing: know how to code. Shoot, you can’t even be the Mayor without knowing how.

That’s why Mayor Bloomberg is upping his skills as one of more than 174,000 people (including this co-editor) who have signed up for Code Year, a 12-month initiative developed by Codeacademy that will deliver an “interactive programming lesson” to your email weekly so that by 2012, you’ll be building apps and websites.

Mayor Bloomberg was so excited that he tweeted about it:
