Enter CodeAcademy. It’s free. It’s simple. It’s in the cloud. It’s fun. It’s rewarding. It’s in demand. It’s for everyone.
CodeAcademy drops the techie lingo, explains why and how code works, breaks tasks down into tiny steps, and rewards success with achievement badges. This approach is especially appealing to kids. Guess what, kids are not afraid of computer programming. Kids will rock CodeAcademy because the interface is extremely simple and intuitive, the instruction is written in plain language, and progress is rewarded. CodeAcademy, although not optimized for mobile devices, works perfectly well on an iPod touch or iPhone, making it accessible even to people who do not have access to a computer. Accessibility is a significant attribute considering that, according to comScore, more than 42% of smart phone users use their devices daily to browse the internet
