Codecademy's free course catalog contains hundreds of hours of content that help people learn to code while the paid Codecademy Pro courses offer students access to additional tools that take the learning experience further.

    Courses are self-paced allowing learners to progress at their own rate with a
    focus on learning through actively coding. Each lesson is made up of a series of interactive coding exercises, which allow you to practice your coding inside a web browser, and each exercise is accompanied by a written explanation.

    Pros - Hands-on learn by doing approach
    Interactive programming console
    Support forums
    Cons - Lessons only cover the basics of coding
    Lessons may be too fast paced for some complete beginners
    Confusing instructions
    Some bugs
    Although the courses teach learners to actually ‘do code’ from the start, it would be advisable to gain some extra theory and background in coding to complement the courses.
