Python on Codecademy

I’ve been meaning to post this since it was announced but Codecademy has released new (and always free) classes in Python (names after Monty Python’s Flying Circus). I’ve not done much on it yet, but am extremely excited to get my teeth into it. It’s a language that can be used in GUI, games, applications – it’s pretty sweet, and from what I’ve heard, fairly easy to grasp.

Codecademy

I’ve been brushing up on my HTML & CSS and learning JavaScript with Codecademy. If you don’t know what this is. Get on it. Now. It’s probably the easiest and cheapest (it’s all free) way to learn HTML, CSS and JavaScript – the three fundamental internet languages. With this Godlike trio you can easily build interactive, cross-platform websites and web-apps.

The reason I’m writing about this is because I’ve had the past week off work and haven’t blogged. I’ve chilled mainly – got a new couch that folds into a kick-ass guest bed, but I’m probably going to make it the base for my fort as I’ve got so much leftover cardboard ¬†packaging¬†(BTW if anyone has any other ideas what to do with this – let’s do something awesome. I’m thinking robots.).

I digress.

So, yea. Codecademy – do it. It’ll open up your prospects, look good on your CV – all that bollocks, yaddah yaddah yaddah.

It’s also hella fun. I’m racking up points like a cyber monster!
