    • Jack Cannon - January 20, 2017

      "I have wanted to learn about coding for a long time when I finally stumbled upon Codeschool. I found Codeschool to be a really great resource for a beginner coder like myself. It really started from the absolute beginning assuming you had no prior knowledge of coding. I've been working on it for several weeks and have been able to program some basic games. Peeking through to later lessons it does get to really advanced things. So I think this would be a great resource for anyone from absolute beginner to advanced user who just needs a bit of a refresher."
