Codecademy also provides a forum where enthusiasts, beginners, and advanced coders can come together and help each other. For some courses, there are 'sandboxes' where users can test out their code.

The first thing you notice when you start the lessons on LearnStreet is the prominent code-entry screen on the right side of the window. Under the code is the run environment that demonstrates the code you write. The instructions are listed on the left side of the screen.

It took me about two hours to work my way through the first five lessons in LearnStreet's 12-lesson Ruby for Beginners. Once you finish the site's programming courses, you can turn your attention to the dozens of coding projects for JavaScript, Python, and Ruby. The projects can be sorted by level (beginner, intermediate, advanced) and by category (tools, games, and algorithms).

LearnStreet also offers free courseware for teachers who want to instruct their students in coding. LearnStreet's

Khan Academy

The Khan Academy is famous for its ground-breaking video tutorials covering nearly every subject a student is likely to encounter. Rather than focus on a particular programming language, the Khan Academy's programming module uses JavaScript to illustrate concepts that apply to coding in general while also teaching some practical JavaScript skills.

The courses are divided into about a dozen categories, each of which has from three to 12 separate lessons. Each video lesson animates the coding technique in a window on the left and shows the result of the code running in a window on the right.

After you watch the coding in action, you're challenged to write code that duplicates the operation. When your code isn't quite right, the tutorial provides hints to help you spot and correct the problem.

It's easy to navigate the Khan Academy lessons and jump between them and the site's other features. A space is provided for creating your own programs, which you can save in your profile and share with the world. You can also browse the programs written by other students. Khan Academy's

Computer Science

This is Computer Science Education Week, and Code.org is honoring the occasion by sponsoring the Hour of Code program that encourages teachers to spend an hour teaching their students how to code.

The Computer Science Education Week site has tutorials that let students as young as 6 years old write their first program in an Angry Birds-like environment. The site also has the Khan Academy's Introduction to JavaScript intended for students in middle school and up, in addition to other app-development resources for students of all ages, many of which are designed to be used offline.


The site offers tutorials in JavaScript, HTML, CSS, XML, SQL, PHP, JQuery, and other Web technologies in addition to JavaScript. There are also demos for building a Web site, server technologies, and Web databases.

The lessons are at a slower pace than those of the other tutorials I tried, and they entail lots of scrolling down the page. You read the instructions and are then shown the code. Click the Try It Yourself button to open a new browser window that lets you write and run the lesson's code.

W3Schools.com's JavaScript tutorial explains the coding technique, presents the code, and then lets you duplicate the code in a run environment.

The Basic section of W3Schools.com's JavaScript tutorial has 19 separate lessons, each of which will take most people 15 minutes to a half hour to complete. There are eight more Advanced lessons, as well as eight to 12 lessons for HTML DOM and Browser BOM. Another dozen or so modules provide libraries, examples, and references.
