codecademy

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've scene a lot of people asking for help on where to start programming and looking for good tutorials, info, ect... I came across codecademy.com and its ideal for beginners like myself. I don't know if anyone on here has posted anything about this site on here, but its a lot like kahnacademy.com but its just for programming. So if your looking for a good place to start coding check it out!

yeah i've been fooling around on it for a few weeks tongue.gif. It's something you have to be consistent with like any language.

I am trying to learn java before school starts in the fall. I am taking computer programming and want to get a head start biggrin.gif

I followed through "Eclipse: Java for total beginners". I learned some, but it left me with lots of questions, and some things I still dont understand.

I just finished "getting started with programming" on codecademy. I love how its interactive, and I can use some things I already know to modify and fool around with the questions. I am going to work my way through the java lessons, it looks fun!

I tried it and it is well done I must say. Only con is that you can't really do anything concrete like doing a program that actually does something. If there was 3 times more lessons then it would be perfect. I am whiling to pay for extra lessons.

I had some bases because I used a programs and needed to add functions but everything existed before. I was just copying the program and adapting it to fit a bit more my needs. I think it is also a nice way to learn.
