Edit: was searching for a particular site that was hunted earlier on PH and ended up making a list of all code learning links hunted before. Hope it helps :) iOS: Books and Bootcamps: @rrhoover "Learn to code" - Producthunt collection maybe :) cc @ErikTorenberg

@kwdinc @rrhoover @ErikTorenberg Made a Google Spreadsheets version, anyone is welcome to add more links!
@kwdinc @ErikTorenberg great list material right here
@kwdinc @rrhoover @ErikTorenberg I never knew Bento was actually hunted before without me knowing. Missed that boat
@jonhmchan @kwdinc @rrhoover @ErikTorenberg Make something new and you can be listed again.
Great to see them move to iOS, even if it's an early start (gotta begin somewhere). I could use a quick way to find all the local videos I've downloaded and access to their non course screencasts too. Will definitely be getting some use out of this one on my commute! Worth noting that the app only handles the video content, and not their interactive coding exercises. @jonfriskics is the developer on this one. Would be great to have him chime in on this thread.
@joostschuur Hi Joost. Thanks for the feature suggestions! We're already planning for a future release that will add all of our Code TV, Feature Focus, and Soup to Bits videos, plus a screen that lets you manage your downloaded videos. I should also note that I led the project here at Code School, but we worked with a local contractor to build most of the iOS app. I talked more about that here: I hope you're all enjoying the app!
Hey @jonfriskics Love this! I'm a current (yearly) subscriber. Interesting choice to go with a contractor instead of a team member at Code School or Envy Labs. Why did you decide to go outside instead of building in house when you provide those services already? Was it a matter of team bandwidth?
@will_lam we didn't want work on the app to impact our content release schedule because a lot of us wear multiple hats here.
I actually think VisiCalc was coded on an iPhone
When i saw this listed on PH, I couldn't believe that they hadn't been hunted already, but even better than that, they've released an iOS app. I'll have to start getting the bus to work more often so I can watch the videos!
This is awesome! I've wanted to be able to take courses from my phone! Thanks
