Code Combat teaches you how to program through a fun, multiplayer game.
More and more innovative programming courses are popping up in schools around the world and sites around the web. Many of these courses — like Codeacademy or Treehouse — are helpful ways to acquire these new, important skills. CodeCombat offers an alternative way to learn how to program. Rather than offering instruction through guided lessons or video lectures, CodeCombat teaches you as you play through a game. The site claims that the best way to learn how to program is simply by writing a lot of code, having a good time doing it. The 80-level game is entirely free, and it’s designed for students aged 9 and up.
