I’ve been using Code Academy for the past few weeks and it is a pretty awesome experience. If you have wanted to get familiar with code this a great free way to do it that also entices you to keep plugging away with a point and award system.

Because there is a lot to learn I’ve started doing a few exercises each morning. It helps get my brain in gear and I usually can do an few exercises in 20 minutes. So it’s not a huge commitment and I’ve been able to keep it up.
I don’t think they have a friends function on Code Academy but I did see something about collaborative projects. Which I haven’t looked into yet. So if you are there let me know!
