Codecademy - Learning Code from Home

Living far from the next University or College? Our favored web coder just told me about this opportunity at Codecademy: Studying programming from home, no matter where in the world you are residing. 


Teaching the World how to Code.
More than 24 Million people are working at improving their skills to succeed in the 21st century right now - and they don't need to be fluent in English. Currently the learning programs are translated into French, Spanish, and Portuguese.
The best: Codecademy is FREE and it is based upon solving tasks.

Codecademy: Bringing Skills to You, Wherever You Are

Today, we’re bringing easy access to a world-class skills education to even more people across the world — hoping they’ll benefit from Codecademy in the same way that our more than 24 million existing learners have. We’ve worked to translate Codecademy to Spanish, Portuguese, and French, with more languages on the way. But that’s not all — we’re working closely to create communities and become embedded in new countries to help new learners all over the world become empowered with the skills they need to succeed in the 21st century. We’ve got amazing partners to help us bring Codecademy to five new countries (along with those that speak their languages!).
Codecademy is also partnering with and Google in an effort to double the number of high school girls studying Computer Science. has committed $1 million to fund $125 DonorsChoose rewards for female students who complete a special Codecademy course. Meanwhile, teachers can earn an additional $500 in classroom rewards when four of their students make it through the course.
