Learn to Code with Codecademy
If you’ve ever thought about learning to code but didn’t know where to begin, Codecademy could be a great way for you to dip your toes into the wonderful world of computer programming. Codeacademy is a startup founded by Zach Sims and Ryan Bubinski that says it’s “…a better, more interactive way to learn programming by actually coding.” Codecademy operates under the philosophy that the best way to get better at coding is to practice coding. Rather than reading how-to books or watching Youtube videos, you complete exercises in an interactive console and learn as you go along. If you sign up for an account, you can save your progress and earn badges to show off to your friends. Oh, and it’s all completely free.
Codecademy seems like it’s already off to a great start. The founders recently announced that they raised $2.5 million from investors and are planning to release a lot of changes and developments to the site over the next few weeks. It’ll be cool to see what updates and improvements are coming our way.
