I challenge you to go write some playful code right this very minute. Especially if you don’t know how to code. Stop reading this article and go find a playground to explore and some documentation to peruse.
Coding doesn’t have to be complex. It doesn’t have to be some crazy set of algorithms scrawled across a whiteboard while you go into a possessed hacker frenzy. Coding can be simple. It can be delightful. You don’t need to learn much to make some pixels do something on a screen. Make something goofy or just a few words on a screen. Have fun with it!
Here is a collection of some of my goofier CodePens for inspiration. Happy coding!
