    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.

    Pros: 

    Easy to catch up the basics. Progate provides many slide which has graphics, texts, conversation and cute character

    Cons: 

    In Progate we cannot learn how to set up environment, like Python, Rails and Sass.

    For beginner programmer it might be problem.

    Although I tried dotinstall and Schoo, they were very boring and difficult to understand it. On the other hund, Progate helped me to learn programming.

    Pros: 

    The UI/UX .

    Cons: 

    Didn't found one yet!

    I have been in the ed-tech industry for the last 3 years and I can confidently say that no other service has the potential for mass adoption as this one - huge potential in the Indian ed-tech market too.

  • Pros: 

    Clear explanations with slides for beginners and and cute design!

    Cons: 

    Too great!

    I have utilised Progate for several months and felt my basic programming skills have improved such as HTML, CSS, Ruby (on rails), Javascript and jQuery. Of course, you can start with other languages, for instance, Python, PHP, Java and Swift.

    As you know, it is generally said that programming is quite tough to learn for beginners and many of them give up learning. I even did not know what to study in the first place. Progate removes these sorts of obstacles and gives you a massive opportunity to start coding.

    I really look forward to expansion of the current language and framework options in the future. At the same time, I also expect so that I can acquire higher-level skills by revision of the service :)

  • Pros: 

    Easy to understand

    Dive straight into the basics

    Let's you learn the layout of modern websites from the very start

    Has Everything

    Cons: 

    none

    except sometimes the lessons get stuck even if instructions done right . Could be my browser though

    You'll love this. There are many like Udemy, Codecademy, CodeSchool, Udacity, etc and I have tried them all but I find it hard to retain the basics. With tremendous practice, no doubt, you'll be able to master them but here you get hands-on experience and the lessons are put in such a manner that you'll be able to grasp all the basics and retain them later. 10/10 recommended

    Pros: 

    i have tried the python track and i have to say it was kinda addicting

    Cons: 

    although i got the answers right sometime they require it exactly as the model answer

    looking forward to more courses on it

    Pros: 

    Easy to use and navigate!

    Cons: 

    None that I'm aware of.

    I used this service to help introduce my students to basic coding. It was easy enough for a complete amateur like me to use!
