Learn to code in just sixty minutes! That is what development firm Codecademy are saying you can accomplish with their new iOS app for iPhone and iPad.
What is Codecademy?
Codecademy is an education company. But not one in the way you might think. We’re committed to building the best learning experience inside and out, making Codecademy the best place for our team to learn, teach, and create the online learning experience of the future.
Before just a few weeks ago, Codecademy was solely available on their website, codecademy.com. But in December 2013, the development-teaching website released a mobile app for iOS products!
We launched our first iPhone app, Codecademy: Hour of Code, for anyone in the world to get started learning to code on the go. We’ve built an entirely new Codecademy experience for mobile that includes the same things that make Codecademy on the web great – interactivity, “snack” sized content, and fun lessons. Our first app gives you the basics of programming and should help absolutely anyone get started with programming – it’s almost too easy not to try!
I downloaded the app on my iPhone 5, and it has a simple yet attractive layout. Instructions are easy to follow, and nothing looks particularly coding, especially for someone who just about knows how to align stuff in HTML.
If you’re a coding newbie like myself and which to pick up a few skills, I definitely recommend downloading the Codecademy iOS app – it’s free too!
