Overview
Codecademy offers free and low-cost coding classes covering the core programming concepts and syntax in HTML & CSS, Javascript, jQuery, PHP, Python and Ruby. Users can also learn the web developer skills needed to build professional websites and applications. 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. Achievements are rewarded with badges and users are now able to share completed projects with the rest of the site community and potentially showcase their skills to employers.

Codecademy also offers Pro Intensive courses designed to immerse learners over 6-10 weeks in website development, programming, or data science.
