New Zealanders Get Their (Code) Game On


New Zealanders Get Their (Code) Game On

Aug 8, 2012

BETA CODE AVENGERS: Founder, Mr. Michael Walmsley of New Zealand, initially created CodeAvengers to teach Javascript to his younger brother in a fun and engaging manner. Our participation on the site revealed a striking resemblance to Codecademy, though this codingatschool review reports the format is "more fun and interactive for young users." The Javascript modules are definitely more thorough, taking 48 mini-lessons to move from alert boxes to a "paper, scissors, rock" program. There's also a nifty teacher module for tracking student progress and a bulk signup process for getting your class started. If you're using Codecademy, CodeSchool, or some other interactive learn-to-code web app, we'd love for you to give it a go and send us your thoughts!
