Level up your jQuery and JavaScript through interactive games with Code School

Most people don’t learn to program and design for the web by reading a book. Real learning takes place when you start experimenting with code in the browser and using design concepts in a website.

ATTENTION:
This Sumo took programming courses in high school for a few reasons:

1) I thought it would be frickin’ cool to build my own applications.

2) The money I could make at the time was a huge motivator.

3) I could be a geek with a lot of money and in turn get TONS of dates.

(Hey, it was a nice afterthought, OK?)

So I did my bit, starting off with Visual Basics and it was fun... to an extent.

After the first quarter though, my interest dropped off.

My mind couldn’t wrap around all the concepts and syntax and I couldn’t stop giggling at the word boolean. Not sure why...

Despite the lower level of engagement towards VB (Visual Basics), I passed the class and decided to take another one the year after in JavaScript.

Not only that but I decided to learn C+ on my own, and finally after 9 months of semicolons, parentheses, and brackets, I couldn't take it anymore!

It was soooo damn booooooring!

Not that what I was learning was boring, but the method to learning it all couldn't hold my attention long enough for me to absorb the information.

So I quit.

And I regret it... horribly... because now I’m so far behind but I still want to learn to code.

If only I had started when there were courses like the ones being offered at Code School.

Where the hell have these been all my life?!?

Code School got it right. They made learning how to code ACTUALLY fun and more engaging by turning their courses into, well, sort of a game.

Here’s an example of how it works:

  • You open the CoffeeScript course
  • Watch an intro to your first lesson
  • Then you start your first level (Variable Assignments)
  • It’ll open a new page with a question, “Assign your name as a string value to a variable named person”, and a field where you can enter your code.
  • (Spoiler Alert) Type in person = “yourname” and hit submit.
  • Congratulations! You passed and get more points!

Each time you level up, you get rewards and badges for your effort.

I tried out that course in CoffeeScript (free for members) and I’m hooked. I’ve never felt such satisfaction in answering questions correctly and actually remembering what I learned.

You have got to try this out, Sumo-ling!

It’s like getting a gold star: It makes you feel good and want to keep learning.

Exactly what I needed in my early days.

So this Sumo thought it would be a good idea to help you rekindle your interest in coding, and we’ve bundled together a few courses to help you get started.

What comes in this Code School bundle:

  • jQuery Air: First Flight - jQuery is a JavaScript library that simplifies web development. Learn jQuery by practicing techniques such as manipulating style and content, responding to events, and even a touch of AJAX. Whether you're new to jQuery or want to solidify your basic skills, this course is for you.
  • jQuery Air: Captain’s Log - Whether you're a jQuery Veteran looking to sharpen your skills or a jQuery Air: First Flight graduate, this new course jumps straight into the most useful jQuery techniques. Gregg Pollack teaches this course which contains 4 new videos and 37 code challenges.
  • CoffeeScript - CoffeeScript is a new programming language which compiles into JavaScript. Inspired by languages like Ruby and Python, it allows you to write less code to get more done.

Normally all three of these courses would kick your wallet in the face for $110 but this Sumo SQUASHED the price down to $59!

You can get your courses TODAY for this Sumo-only price but it’s for a limited time only so you’ll want to hurry before the price inflates back up to $110!

Sincerely,
The “Hungry Hungry” Chief Sumo

Code School has gotten a loyal customer here. :) super fresh and user friendly and playful learning environment for catching up with the newest web technologies AND best practices (which is also super important, i feel).
Would recommend to anyone like me who's a scratch-the-surface semi-developer.

Now this is fun

This is the most useful deal I have snapped up from AppSumo. Loving being walked through jQuery and CoffeeScript by guys who know their stuff.

This seems to be the same as CodeAcademy, except not free. Looking at their website, they seem to offer roughly the same languages, so can anyone speak to the quality of CodeSChool vs CodeAcademy?
