After creating a free account by providing an email address and password or signing in using your Facebook login information, you’re presented a profile page where you can chart your progress in completing the site’s inaugural eight lessons (Confirm Or Deny, Variables, Letters n’ Strings, What If?, etc.) and view the points, achievements, and badges you collect along the way. Further, you can designate who views your page (Only Me, Everyone, Signed In Users) and link to social networks to share information with friends.
Although Codecademy is currently limited to eight courses, the site promises more are coming soon.
Subscribing to the site’s newsletter will let you know when that occurs. In the meantime, Codecademy won’t turn you into a coding master, but it is an excellent interactive and fun entry into the often confusing and overwhelming world of programming code.
