I am not affiliated with Codecademy at all. I am just a satisfied user that has touched up/learned a lot of skills from the free courses they offer. It is a great site for beginners because it is taught in an interactive environment. I know a lot of people, inexperienced and new to Game Development, see GameMaker as an easy way out. The majority of those people can't code. If this sounds like you then this site is for you. It doesn't get much easier than this!
Go out and learn!
