Codecademy Tutorials

Codecademy

Codecademy is a site of interactive programming tutorials for various programming and scripting languages. The lessons are remarkably intuitive (especially for coding) and very gamelike, which makes them a lot more fun even if you get stuck.

The tutorials are extremely ground-up, so they’re a really good place to start getting used to writing code regardless of whether you’re looking for a general introduction or specifically the languages they teach. Most of it’s aimed more at web than games, but the site’s a great introduction regardless and there are a decent number of game tutorials on it.

There’s also a course specifically geared towards building websites, for all those of you who just want a portfolio website or something like that but want to make it from scratch.
