(239 User Reviews) Codecademy Review - Introduction Coding is a tough skill, and it might be difficult to find a reputable online learning platform to be able to start learning it. You won't learn the ins and outs, but you'll actually be able to look at something and say, "yeah... i kinda get that now"I still don't understand BigO notation, mainly because my math ability is fucking pathetic now. Coursera is good too and MIT's opencourseware has more advanced courses in CS for later. I would like to start learning again, but I’m so unmotivated because technically I should already be able to code HTML and CSS now, but in reality I have no idea how to apply what I learned.At the very least I type in code word for word.
I think its highly overrated, particularly on this subreddit. It put me in a position to get an internship.
A website is so much more interactive than doing it and reading it in my opinion.After completing the Ruby track, I felt like I had a solid grasp on the syntax and usage, but had no idea what people actually use it for. I'm a student studying electrical engineering trying to learn a bit of programming before i have to take courses next year (i've always wanted to learn and have tried but always stopped). If you want Android development for example, Tree house's stuff seems a bit light, but I've not looked for good Android dev stuff enough to rcmnd something better.On codecademy you get a web-based basic text editor with some good features that emulates what programming is actually like.Each of the above listed tools is focused towards a different audience; each tool by itself is good, but they work better when used in conjunction.I have been poking around on the teamtreehouse.com site for a few days and reading on reddit etc.
Do a search for the "codecademy" or "code academy" and you'll see tons of posts, and tons of similar questions.As a absolute beginner with no prior knowledge about any aspect of programming, I'm enjoying it. IMO the best is edx.org, they have free courses one can register for. That’s why many people turn to various different reviews for help. Suddenly they ask you stuff you never recall learning or might've forgot.
Especially if you are a beginner, those books are well written and informative as hell! i still have a long way to goThis is exactly right. The quizzes are sometimes REALLY HARD.
As a last resort when you're totally stuck the Q & A forum is quite comprehensive, providing tips, trick, and outright solutions.I've also read many success stories of individuals who have started with Codecademy and treehouse, then went on to use Code School.
At the very least, it gets me writing code every day--which I think is the absolute best way to learn programming, regardless of language.no one is learning that on code academy.I think it is good for getting one's feet wet with the whole idea of CS and/or programming.
