You won't learn to code per se but learn how shopify works and how the code behind is formatted. The example are given within the code/text editor so it's a hands-on approach. Good stuff to grasp shopify front-end
Awesome straight forward tutorial.
This is a great intro to general set-up and understanding how Shopify works, to all the basics of theme development. Although I have built Shopify themes before it was a helpful refresher and clarified a few concepts I was rusty on.
