On the Home page of the app, you can choose which programming language you want to learn. Each course has several lessons with sub-topics inside each lesson. You can start off right from the top and work your way down the lessons or you can choose to start mid way too.
Each topic in a lesson explains a concept with an example. You have to then answer quick short questions to test what you’ve learned. The app automatically saves your course progress so you can resume from where you left off.
The app features 5 main tabs :- Learn, Play, Feed, Code and Discuss.
All the courses you take up can be accessed via the Learn tab.
The Play tab lets you take up a challenge and match your coding skills against an opponent. The winner of the challenge earns XP which can be used up to get hints or bypass certain parts of the course.
The Code and Discuss tab are social features. You can share and read what others have submitted. You’ll find answers on how to use the app, you can get clarifications on the courses themselves and you can even get some good ideas for programming.
All the courses in the Learn to Code app have a good structure and design. The topics are short and crisp with quizzes to ensure that your learning is on the right track. At the end of each lesson, you have a final quiz that will help you evaluate your understanding of the lesson’s content.
The Take a Shortcut link lets you take a pre-test to determine your level of understanding on a lesson. If you pass with flying colors, you can skip the topic and move on to the next one. If you haven’t done well in your quiz, you simply need to take it one lesson at a time.
The app offers a fun way to learn by gamifying the learning experience. You can earn badges and XP points, take up challenges and motivate yourself to learn more in the process.
If you want to learn multiple programming languages, you should definitely consider SoloLearn. It covers the most popular programming languages, is great for beginners and best of all, is 100 percent free. No ads either.
