Codecademy has a saying it likes to share with its 45 million learners: “If you know how to read, you can learn how to code.”
In other words, coding is easier than you might think. And if you do run into trouble, Codecademy is right there to help.
For broader computer science fundamentals, the app offers command-line courses as well. Each is broken up into lessons designed to help you master one new skill every day. And you always learn by doing; every lesson ends with your writing actual code to show off that new skill.
If Codecademy’s website is the classroom, Codecademy Go is like your study group. The app is where you can review concepts with flashcards, complete fill-in-the-blank quizzes, and keep track of how many days in a row you’ve practiced. If you stay on schedule, you’ll be done sooner than you think: Each course can typically be finished in less than 12 hours.
Codecademy Go is free to start and offers one practice lesson per day. To unlock daily access to an unlimited number of practice sessions and courses across the company’s full curriculum, you’ll need a subscription to Codecademy Pro. But that only makes sense: Keep up with all it has to offer and you’ll be a pro in no time.
