Learn to code online. For Free.
Codecademy is an education company. But not one in the way you might think. Committed to building the best learning experience inside and out, making Codecademy the best place for people to learn, teach, and create the online learning experience of the future.
Education is old. The current public school system in the US dates back to the 19th century and wasn't designed to scale the way it has. Lots of companies are working to "disrupt" education by changing the way things work in the classroom and by bringing the classroom online.
We're not one of those companies. We are rethinking education from the bottom up. The web has rethought nearly everyth...Read more

I'm almost done with the course and I have learned a lot, but I have also spent a lot of time submitting bug tickets for errors with their lessons. It's way too many given that I paid good money for this course. It's mostly little things, but to someone learning these concepts for the first time it can be really confusing. Some examples include:
- Example code where the class name in the html is different than for the css rule (class = "big" vs .large...Read more
The Learning People with the course 'Full stack development' have thus far offered me continual support and a strong lesson structure.
Three modules, each module with a final practical assessment putting your intel to the test.
The tricky part of all of this is how motivated are you? And do you enjoy puzzle solving, do you get a kick out of fixing and finding a bit of wrong'un code.
I've discovered I do, but it still took me a while to get started.
The course does have a few problems, spelling and grammar for a start. Certain explanations can be complex to grasp and I feel there are better or alternative ways to explain them, however that is what the internet is for.
The support team is solid, the mentorship so far is a bit pointless, but I may need it in the latter stages of the...
Structured classroom work is very good, and takes you through all the vital parts of the different languages.
Shows you how to code in the correct way and hopefully eliminates any bad practise.
Allocated a tutor who is very helpful and allows available to lend a hand.
Student care is great, they will help with any issues you are having and will provide a CV detox for you
One of the exercises had the incorrect code available to upload, so I spent an unnecessary amount of time trying to solve something that I wasn't able to.
I have had a great time with my Codeacademy course!
I have received a lot of support both when I have asked for it and impromptu, which is fantastic - you always know where you are and have multiple avenues that you can take to get any help you need. The mentor programme has been fantastic as well and it's nice to be able to look through the past works and history of your mentor to get a better understanding of the person giving you help and their background of work within the industry.
On top of that the courses are comprehensive - I have learned way more than I thought would be possible in the time that I have had with the course. Everything is explained in such a way that a layman could understand, without losing any of the necessary complexities and contexts and you become acc...Read more
Nothing quite beats free education, especially of such a modern, fast-paced and growing field. Technology has been, is and will always be hot. So approaching that barrier of entry and being able to break it is crucial. Part of learning is also learning how to learn (arguably one of the most difficult steps). It can be overwhelming figuring out what the best way to learn is and the proper progression. This is why I LOVE CodeAcademy. It provides an easy to digest, foundational introduction to core concepts revolving around all of the latest and relevant programming languages, frameworks and concepts. Even expert level developers or engineers can gain initial bite sized chunks of crucial knowledge if they want to tap into a new concept. I was so shocked and how well presented the material ...Read more
Took this when I was a beginner and it helped me decide that software engineering was for me!
I wouldn't recommend it as something that will take you from zero to junior developer level, but it certainly changed my life and helped me get a kick start.
It's 100% worth trying/checking out!
The basic service is completely free. If you want more exercises, quizzes, and some coaching, you can sign up for Codecademy Pro (quite inexpensive, only $20 per month).
Each course has a series of units and lessons, each with an explanation of new material plus the chance to try it out yourself. It is a perfect mix of theory and practice. This method is ideal for learning programming, being "hands-on", and you learn much faster than just passively watching video explanations.
Codecademy lessons generally have very clear explanations that are easy to follow, ev...Read more
I tried the Python section and loved it. I hadn't programmed much before and I love the way they teach it here - it's like playing a video game and makes learning fun. Highly recommend it - the course I took was free!
