Why the noun code doesn't take any article?

The following quote from "The sorcery code" by DimaZales:

Blaise was sitting in his study writing code.

lacks either the definite article or the indefinite article.

I wonder why? Is there anything I'm missing? Is the gerund that can take a direct object without the article?
