“Learn to Code Now” by Rik Lomas & SuperHi

We felt most guide books on learning to code suck — they’re too technical and impractical — so we decided to write one ourselves.

Last month, Rik Lomas and the team at the SuperHi online code school released a book called Learn to Code Now, a 420-page guide to learning HTML, CSS and Javascript, designed for creative people who are new to coding. That description sums it up nicely I think, but seriously, check out that extensive table of contents:

The book’s foreword was written by Frank Chimero and it’s great:

You will make mistakes. Things won’t work! But you will also have good company—we all get it wrong the first, second, and usually third tries, no matter how much experience we have. Getting your hands on the materials is a learning process for all of us. We feel the grain and discover the contours of the problem we are solving, and revise when our efforts don’t work quite as expected. Luckily, code and pixels are free, so your trials and errors should be less expensive than the considerable amount of lumber I’d waste if I ever took up woodworking.


Learn to Code Now can be purchased in two forms:

  1. Digital-only — Includes PDF, EPUB, and Kindle formats. ($29)
  2. Print + Digital — Same as above plus the print version. ($59)
