As my review is not saving under the original Codecademy post, I am making it as a separate post.
If I was able to rate the post, I would give it 5 out of 5 to the founder/s and the product.
The story about creating a useful solution for those who want to learn to code and motivation of Zach and his co-founder, Ryan Bubinski, is exciting. Zachary’s experience in business development and Ryan’s in programming seem to be complementing each other.
Codecademy is the platform I recommend to anyone who needs to learn to code, which is virtually everyone who cannot do it yet. Their coding courses are really very effective, interactive and fun. I was introduced to their courses by my Lead, when I started my job as Instructional Designer 3 years ago. I needed to learn HTML fast, and Codecademy let me learn what I needed in a few days. Moreover, I enjoyed their courses so much as they are very visual, project—based, and they track your progress.
Codecademy got many awards, but the one that I find most impressive is the “Best Education Startup” Crunchie Award by TechCrunch in 2013. I am amazed by perseverance and motivation of this young and talented founders and the way they turned their own struggle into a beautiful product that helps others to learn employable digital skills. Now as they have built a large user base, I hope to see the company making profit within the next few years.
