Who wants even more school?
Mega-bearded philosopher and revolutionary Karl Marx, for one. He said that the more people know about where their products come from, the more fulfilled they are. Take websites: one of the products we use most, but many of us know so little about how they work that they might as well be magic.
Well, it probably is magic.
Time to get my learn on.
It’s early days yet – all you can take so far are basic JavaScipt lessons – but Codecademy has enough support behind it to deliver a lot more. It won’t magically turn you into a trained programmer, but at the very least it’ll make the web a less mysterious place. At best, Codecademy will teach casual web users to build their own sites and apps from scratch. Which would be, as Karl would say, revolutionary.
