across Codeacademy.org, while watching
a video on Youtube. Being that I?m the field I have always been interested in
what really makes the programs and sites that we use tick. So I signed up and
decided to give it a shot. This was on a Friday night; I figured I would watch
a video get the idea and eventually pick it up again. After starting out my
first HTML lesson I realized I was hooked, when I looked up at the clock I had
just spent an hour on the site. Not because it was difficult, but because I can
actually make sense of what I was seeing.
exactly is CodeAcademy.com; it?s the
best, web-based course that helps you learn different programming languages in an
easy format without any clutter and the ability to run in basically any browser.
Who should be using it? Better question is who shouldn?t be? In certain parts
of the world children start coding in primary school, so what are we waiting
reasons to learn, there has been an incredible push by school districts and by
organizations such as the ever-popular Code.org to get everybody to learn how to code. Be
apps and websites that act as full-blown coding courses.
So why do I love
to use it, it?s easy of use and understanding. Let?s just say the lessons are written in
plain English, anyone can understand them. Oh wait, and did I mention it?s free!!! Yes, ladies and gentleman there are still
good things in this world for free. Knowledge
is one of them.
to conclude; whether you?ve coded before or not, this site is for you. Whether it?s
a refresher you are after or a way to learn the way language operates, this is
the site for you. I still have not found any flaws in it, so I say give it a
try what do you have to lose?
