Codecademy has been around for a while now, but I’ve just recently started using Codecademy. With my day job being more product/marketing focused, I’ve been looking for a way to brush up on my programming. (Use it, or lose it.)
- Codecademy is a great place for non-developers to quickly learn basic programming concepts
- The courses are a great refresher on the latest language developments. (ie HTML5)
- The lessons are simple and fast-paced
- Codecademy courses are a great foundation for anyone trying to learn the foundations of software development or wanting to hack on their own projects
- Courses are not very deep and don’t address the most common challenges developers face
- Language courses are siloed. For example, most developers would use PHP/jQuery/SQL in combination with each other.
- No courses on database development.
