New Tracks: Web, jQuery, and JavaScript

Just over a year ago, Codecademy started with a single JavaScript course. Since then, we’ve built out the JavaScript language track and added curricula for HTML/CSS, the jQuery library, Python, and Ruby.

As we’ve developed these courses, we’ve listened carefully to your feedback and worked to ensure the best possible learning experience for you. To that end, we’re unveiling three refurbished Codecademy tracks for the web (HTML and CSS), the jQuery library, and JavaScript.

These new tracks are now available on the main tracks page. If you’ve been working through the original courses, never fear! Your progress is safe and sound, and you can access it by clicking on the “Me” icon in the upper right of the page and selecting “View my profile.”

Whether you’ve been advancing through the original tracks or are looking for a new language to tackle, go ahead and try out our brand-new courses. We’re sure you’ll enjoy them!

Welsh teachers and Codecademy

We’ve spent a lot of time working on ways to reach out not only to individual students, but also to educators who can help groups of students learn. To that end, we’ve created things like our after school kits. Today, we’re pleased to announce our newest partnership with Computer Science teachers in Wales.

Codecademy Cymru—a joint program between Codecademy and the Welsh Computing At School (CAS)—will feature a custom curriculum to help teach computer science in schools across Wales. This collaboration marks another small step in our international expansion. For Welsh teachers interested in joining in, please sign in here.
