Codecademy has added jQuery lessons and a scratchpad to its fun and engaging tool that teaches people how to code online, the company is announcing today.
The new jQuery lesson is the first to be contributed by a member of the Codecademy community, and the scratchpad tool will let people see what the code they’ve created in action.
Codecademy is a free site where people who are interested in learning programming can take lessons through an interface that makes the whole process like a game.
Codecademy is a great resource for learning the basics of programming. As they incorporate more lessons and tools into the site, it should continue to get better.
