I understand. Most PR professionals are not succeeding because of their top notch Computer Science degree, ability to code or program – but why not?
Codecademy is an interactive web resource for learning how to do basic coding in a fun, almost conversational manner. Upon entering the site, I learned a few simple command lines for basic math.
Why is this important for PR pros to know?
It’s not a requirement, but understanding how to put together a simple website (or how to modify a preexisting template to your liking) is a skill that many PR and Communication professionals do not possess. This understanding could be useful in determining what needs can be met in terms of a company’s method of web design, promotional materials, etc. And it never hurts to learn something new.
