I like the way you join the website and it takes you straight into doing stuff, not just watching a video and then rinsing and repeating.

 

Also, signup took me literally ten seconds, incredibly fast.

Looks really nice, except I seem to notice that a lot of "Learn to program" sites only teach languages that have to do with web design

Looks pretty cool, i will have to check that out. I'm kind of an intermediate coder so i have to go back through stuff I know.

From a cursory glance, this actually looks really cool. A very interesting approach to teaching, and I could see this being applied to many subjects.

I remember seeing this site quite a while ago and I did a first couple pages of it and it was pretty neat. What I really liked about it is how beginner-friendly it is. They(I'm pretty sure it's written by more than 1 person) explain VERY important topics for beginners in an easy to understand way, which is what I like. One of the main problems with new people just starting program is they really don't know WHERE to start. And to be honest, I wouldn't even know where to start someone, but that's why I'm not a teacher (: but the point I was getting at is, this site is almost like a double edged blade. From what I saw it's teaching you javascript(idk if it changes later on) and at the same time they're explaining what you're doing in a way that you can apply it to most other programming languages fairly easily.

 

Thanks for reminding me about this site, I will definitely be referrencing this to people who may want to start programming in the future.

I learned some Ruby with this website, then I released how it would server no purpose at all to me.

Ruby is a very useful language, unless you're not into programming I guess.

I just finished the first unit, and I have to say, it's extremely user-friendly. As a beginner with little time to program, I tend to forget a term later on. However, the ability to go back to past lessons easily and the lessons' incorporation of past concepts is super useful. It's really nice.

I actually heard about this a long while ago. Never got around to following through with it. I guess I'll give it a shot since it got an A+ from Krysk.

I'm learning Python as my first language off this site I really like the way it teaches you, most other sites I tried were not so "beginner" friendly.

http://www.codecademy.com I've been using this codeacademy site (Which is free) to help me start figuring out how to code and all that jazz, I suggest using it if you've been having trouble figuring out a good spot to start off on learning java or some other language.

I found it to be a good site for learning basics however some of the instructors aren't very clear at times (Eric Weinstein gets a lot of criticism for being a terrible teacher), but luckily each lesson has a forum where you can ask for help from other people going through the course you're currently on. Also, sometimes you're able run a script and be told that you're correct when you really aren't or still have no idea what you're doing early on.

Another really helpful site, once you check things out on there, is http://www.codingbat.com.

I used that site to start getting a little better with Java. I know Java isn't on codecadamy, but Python is. Definitely a helpful site to go through.
