Codecademy Becomes a Platform


Cofounder Zach Sims says that as soon as Codecademy first launched, the site was inundated by requests from teachers and programmers who were eager to contribute their own lessons. To date that hasn’t been possible — all lessons on Codecademy were written in-house, or by special guest contributors. Starting with today’s launch, which the company is considering a beta, anyone will be able to write their own interactive lessons using the site’s tools (with documentation available explaining how to use them).

I’ve been participating in Codecademy’s Code Year which focuses on Javascript, and I’ve really enjoyed it. So far, the pace has been perfect. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of tutorials this new platform produces.
