Couple of weeks ago Sebastian from the Scientific Ocean Blog published a review about a great new programming learning platform called Codecademy, he described the platform format, teaching techniques, courses offered and the most intriguing part is the comparison with Udacity another great learning platform.
Refreshing My Knowledge
The course started with a typical introduction about the language and its usage, then continued to introduce new topic with every section such as functions, loop statements, control flow, then to data structure and objects. Its beauty is with the way it is structured, the sections described above and their subsections handling different scenarios, explaining the syntax usage, practicing and then building a certain game or a small app. In addition to that the online interpreter is what makes it even better, you can try and practice what you’ve learned directly in the browser and check if the syntax is correct and if the problem was solved correctly (which will get you reward points and badges as described by Sebastian).
The added value
My next steps would be “Refreshing My JQuery” and “Updating My Python“, what’s yours?
The Good Parts
Happy Learning and Refreshing.
