Instruction is delivered in a variety of formats, including instructional videos, background readings, and project-based tasks that require users to write code to build projects and complete exercises.Those who get stuck can peruse the community-driven Q&A, or reach a course instructor via Twitter or for a live chat.
Once users have acquired the basic set of skills from the exercises, they are encouraged to apply them to projects in the "Code Garage," a project playground where users can tinker with existing code to build widgets, game and puzzles. (Example projects include Hangman, Blackjack, and Minesweeper.) Projects can be done individually or in collaboration with others, and can be shared on social networks.
As of January 2013 the platform is available to anyone free of charge. The platform has received praises from many of its users, as seen here via Twitter.
