If you want to learn to program, you don't just need lessons. You need to write a lot of code and have a great time doing it. That's what programming is about. It's fun. Not fun like “yay, I got a badge” but fun like “NO MOM I HAVE TO FINISH THE LEVEL!” That's why CodeCombat is a multiplayer game, not just a gamified lesson course.

Code Combat is an online game that teaches “grown up” languages such as Python and JavaScript through challenging puzzles. Forge through dungeons and dark forests, battling goblins and wizards. New concepts are introduced as you go by finding “gear” that expands your hero’s program. When you complete the course, play continues as you compete in “code battles,” pitting your hero’s combat programs against other kids’.

An e-mail address is REQUIRED to use Code Combat. If you don’t have one, we can help you sign up for your first.
