Week Five: Codecademy
One aspect of the course that I really appreciated was that it provided resources on how to access Mozilla’s developer documentation — a useful way to learn from the source rather than just through tutorials. Codecademy incorporates scavenger-hunt-like tasks in their lessons to get you acquainted with using developer documentation to find certain information.
I also really liked that Codecademy has a goal-setting feature in your profile where you can designate how many days a week you want to spend learning and the site will keep track of it for you. If you’re at all goal-oriented like we here at Wahine Coder, you will LOVE this feature. I would have preferred a video-based curriculum, but the tutorial did supplement some segments with videos and kept the lessons short and interactive so it never felt like too much reading material.
