REASONS I'M WARY OF SUGGESTING CODECADEMY TO BEGINNING PROGRAMMERS
I think it's a fine tool if you know the basics and need to pick up a new language quick, but I'm not so sure it's right for beginners. I'm open to counter arguments.
- •It obscures original error messages
- •It tells you that passing code failed because you missed the exclamation point at the end of "Hello World!"And other such nonsense
- •It delays beginners from setting up their own development environments
- •There is no interactive shell you can use for experimentation
