Codecademy is great to get your feet wet, but you will most likely forget a vast majority of what they teach you about HTML/CSS or hit a wall when things don't line up like they did in their tutorials because they gave you a paint by numbers guide to make a website.

I used code-academy to introduce myself to html and css, and I think it's just fine. It teaches you the basics quickly and provides you instant feedback.

I also started with codecademy. It's a very good free resource to get you started, but I found it a little too basic.

Codeacademy, in my opinion, is a primer.If youre fresh to programming, using codeacademy is good, because it can get you in the rhythm of coding.

Codeacademy is a good introduction to concepts but doesnt implement anything and holds your hand a lot. It would be a good replacement for the old computer courses you had in elementary school that taught you typing, but instead programming. It doesnt teach you anything professionally useful, but it does familiarize you with things that will be useful when you actually start to learn.

I wrote my first few lines of code on Codecademy, and I think it's a great place to start, but not the only one. There are already a number of very helpful answers giving the pros and cons of Codecademy and tutorials in general. From my personal experience, tutorials can be a great way to start: the structure is helpful, and setting up your coding environment can feel intimidating and time-consuming when you just want to get coding and see what it's like.

Its an excellent platform, all those other websites are good too, but codecademy is well known and I would recommend it! If I hadnt done codecademy I wouldnt have known what to do in my coding unit at university!One think I dont like about codecademy are their projects, its pretty dull and easy! If they would increase the quality of their projects(real life ones) it would be pretty GOOD. But learning the concept and theory I think they do it best for begineers.

CodeAcademy can be an OK introduction to a concept, but because its so guided and because youre working in their tutorial environment, rather than your own development environment, you only get a small portion of the whole picturetheyll hone in on whatever skill theyre teaching in a particular section, and a lot of the actual work to make an app or site work will be invisible to you.

Codecademy is one of the best places to spur your interest in computer programming by giving you nice and simple exercises to get a hang of the syntax.I would say the user interface for Codecademy is so well received by its users that it gives the user a feeling of fun while doing the exercises. So I definitely recommend this if you want to show someone some simple things you can do with coding.

It is good for basics for Web Development skills. Also you can find discussion forums where you share and talk about courses our other stuff. Also you can upload some project here and male it public, you can see others' code writing style over this projects which may help you. But it it's not for more advanced learning.
