    Pros: 

    Beautiful UI, "real" terminal and text editor environment to work in, starts simple and scaffolds concepts out well. Has good conventions 😍

    Cons: 

    Ya'll weren't ready for Product Hunt🙃 No issues so far, just the servers getting slammed but I'm sure you're on it. ❤ what I'm seeing so far

    One of the first git tutorials I've ever used that did something along the lines "But wait, that's not a very good commit message. What does patch actually do? Let's write a better one" Very simple example but that level of care / attention to detail put a big smile on my face (especially as someone that's been teaching git for a year)

    I went through the git module and plan on sharing this with my students for refreshing / getting an intro on some concepts.

    Pros: 

    Best Free sites to learn coding IMHO, easy to learn with slides explaining the detail

    Cons: 

    No Cons

    I have learn through many tutorials, free and paid. Progate is better than every free tutorial right now and better than some paid too. I hope you keep building the site.

Hello, The site Awesome! Thanks for making beginners learn for free. I had a question do you guys give certificate after completion of course and also the website is terribly slow.
Masa KatoMaker@cmasad · Progate, CEO
@aayushxn We currently don't have any certificates but are giving it some thought right now! And we're very sorry about the speed of the website. We didn't expect this many users coming from product hunt :p

Wow! I already love Japanese graphics and learning in this visual way is great treat to my eyes and brain. So. thank you. :) Well, your homepage says "Learn to code on Progate, for free!" which implies that it's a free platform but above in some else's comment, you have said that in Japan you have already started charging $10 per month. For users like us who live outside Japan, will we also need to pay $10 per month after completing few first basic course? Maybe not now, but after few month? If so, it's kind of misleading. :( I request you not to charge your current users who have registered here thinking it's a free platform. So we will be considered as early adopters of your platform. But I do understand that for sustainability, you will have to charge users. but when you do, mention pricing plans clearly on your site. Thank you again for creating this wonderful web-learning platform. Cheers, Nitesh

@niteshmanav First of all, thanks for taking an interest in Progate! > For users like us who live outside Japan, will we also need to pay $10 per month after completing few first basic course? Maybe not now, but after few month? If so, it's kind of misleading. :( Yes, all the courses are free for now, but we may charge the users in the future. I have to admit, the phrasing was a little misleading. Let me fix that! > I request you not to charge your current users who have registered here thinking it's a free platform. So we will be considered as early adopters of your platform. I also think that this is a great idea! Let me talk with my team about this. Thanks again for the kind comments and insightful feedback! Happy coding :)

@cmasad Thank you for the quick response and listening to my feedback. I am loving it so much more now. :) Yes. Please try to give this great opportunity to have free forever account to the current users or you may construct a time-limited system by which referring five more people to this platform will make their account free for life.. or something like that.

Have to say, I really dig the slides format vs the video format of Treehouse.
