Codecademy expands into server side languages with Python support for its “millions” of users
Codecademy expands into server side languages with Python support for its millions of users. The start-up found that running Python and Ruby client-side led to endless problems, so it developed a way to run the code server-side, which supposedly has made expanding into additional languages, such as Ruby or perhaps PHP, much easier.
More than anything, as the site’s offerings expand, it is moving closer to a viable solution for transforming enthusiasts into educated programmers. This, in conjunction with a playground-like service, such as Programmerr, adds up to something pretty powerful; the ability to learn to code without even leaving your browser.
From the release:
“We’ve been hard at work on one of the most requested languages: Python! It’s an excellent choice for a wide range of applications in many different industries. Furthermore, its clean, readable syntax makes it a favorite for beginning programmers. Say goodbye to all of those braces and semicolons!
