Codecademy – Play Way Code Learning

How did we learn languages ? i meant the literal ones like English or German. In general we have three medium to support the learning process. You can read, write and speak the language. Similarly in the programming languages we have read, code, and compile. But most of the times when it comes to learning programming languages we just read the language either in the text or watch them through really long tiring video lectures. There is something always missing in the learning process. Codecademy tries to bridge this gap through their unique integrated learning schema where you can learn the coding stuffs in a play way method. In short codecademy is a kinder garden for newbie programmer.

All they require from you is just the interest to learn programming.
