  1. Codecademy is a free online resource to learn computer code, including HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, Python, and Ruby. I'm currently taking the JavaScript course, and I'm having so much fun I might go back and take the HTML/CSS course for the lulz/to see if there's anything I missed from my self-taught crash course (i.e. several years of screwing with wikitext and a few hours reading the w3schools HTML tutorial). You probably wouldn't guess that learning programming could be fun, but my last lesson was building a choose-your-own-adventure game involving Snow White and Batman. Cool, right? Anyway, I would recommend that everyone learn at least the basics of HTML, because whether you know it or not, whenever you write a blog post or a comment it's in HTML. However, if you don't know how it works, you can't take full advantage of the language. It's like using a calculator but not knowing math. Y'know?
