  • Featured Mod of the Month: Anita Olsen
    Anita: I have lifetime access to the subscription-based code-learning website, CodeCombat, where I enjoy learning Python and taking all the Game Development courses offered there. Those games I made were a part of the Game Development 1 and 2 courses (there is also a 3rd course) on CodeCombat. You code the games entirely on your own from scratch by the use of the knowledge you have gathered from the lessons in the... - Source: / 4 months ago
  • Screen-free coding for children: the xylophone maze
    And, which has been around for a while now. I think this paradigm (navigating a character using "move" function invocations) is good but kind of exhausts its usefulness after a while. I question whether my daughter learns coding this way or just is playing a turn based top down platformer. The most code like thing is when you use 'loops' to have characters repeat sequences of moves. I... - Source: Hacker News / 5 months ago
  • What can I do?
    So now, while you have time (yes you have no time now but when you are out of school working with a child and or no summer vacation you will have less time) you can try MIT Scratch or CodeCombat and learn to code. For you it's a long the goal is to make 1 app or a handful of apps in 4 years until you graduate. That's absolutely doable even for someone who knows 0 about coding. Then when you graduate, if you are... Source: 8 months ago
  • What Programming Languages are Best for Kids?
    You can also have a look on Erase All Kittens (quite interesting) and also Code Combat. Source: 11 months ago
  • And DigTech teachers willing to share?
    Https:// is REALLY good, the free levels have enough content for ~10 weeks for an intro to programming term. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Read in the newspaper that Switzerland are in need of teachers. Why is it such an unpopular Profession, I heard that teachers are paid really well here in Switzerland
    I bought a subscription at for my kids, and they move somehow through it. Wouldn't say it's a big success, but they're slowly getting a hand to it. Source: about 1 year ago
  • What does "do projects" mean?
    Your 2c are good, but I'll add to them - if you have trouble with self-tutoring the basics, then tread hte way of the padawan. Use, or and the Microsoft code exercises (Hour of code on Minecraft educational edition - the latest HoC offers both block coding and python coding). Source: over 1 year ago
  • Old but not rusty - Learning Clojure?
    For just staring to learn coding, I would start with Python/Javascript. Highly recommend and Youtube and video tutorials are generally better than books (unless you really enjoy reading books!). Source: over 1 year ago
  • Compass heading from vertical microbit
    Is it for kids to learn coding? I found pretty efficient in teaching it. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Having difficulty learning Python (as a beginner) by staying engaged. Feel self-taught is best way to go as Udemy courses are boring and coding boot camps seem to be a gamble, but questioning that now. Don't know what ideas I can turn into actual projects.
    Forget portfolios and have fun. Make a game, join a modding community, learn Python thru gaming at sites like CodeCombat. Honestly, I feel really stressed just by reading your post. If I were in your position, I'd be beating myself up about programming being the latest in a long line of unfinished projects and lost opportunities. That kind of stress and negative self-talk is absolutely, totally demotivating. Your... Source: over 1 year ago
  • Learn python for a 13 year old
    See if you like . It's a bit to easy for you to begin with but gets a bit harder later on. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Beginner to learning JavaScript
    If you're still interested in JavaScript I will recommend, or even CodeCombat. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Want to start helping my 11 year old brother learn to code
    There are also some good game based systems If you have apple you can go for the swift playgrounds which is quite good or something online like this Source: over 1 year ago
  • ChatGPT 3.5 turbo is still available if you have an API.
    Chatgpt works great when you can read code so that way you know better what to ask it. If your programming skills are lacking I recommend bust out a few worlds in that and it makes using chatgpt much easier when coding. Source: over 1 year ago

  • 35N Vs 17C
    If you want to FOR SURE work on computers 17C is your best bet. 35N can go just about anywhere. You want to code, learn to code. The army may teach you basics but you are on your own. I always recommend CodeCombat to my soldiers if they want to dip their feet in to coding before they make the plunge. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Ask HN: My son (9yo) wants to learn to develop games
    3. My best scenario for now is to create an account at either [CodingGame]( or [CodeCombat]( They apparently have a French version and hopefully the beginning would be not that hard. And since it's coding, I could help him. - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Show HN: A 100% free and interactive Python course for coding beginners
    > simplifying the language and some of the conceptual stuff This might work to an extent, but I think it makes more sense to choose a resource that's actually targeted at kids so that it's holistically and fundamentally designed to be the best thing possible for kids. That means features like simplifying the language itself (like Hedy or Scratch) or a game like to make it fun. - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • How to learn Python in a funny way?
    Me and my son are writing simple text based games. He first started on, and now he is creating simple games using simple game engine I have prepared. Nothing fancy, still work in progress… but it motivates him. Which is what counts. Source: over 1 year ago
