Not Worth the Money
I signed up during the lockdowns and it was probably worth the $99 at the time since I was stuck in the house. I used for a while but then life got busy again. I forgot I had it for a few months, then I changed banks. And Thank God I did! Tonight I went to log in and my account has been suspended. If I hadn’t changed banks and forgot the account, they would have auto-charged me…$167.88 for a year of service. Really? $167? I went to find a discount code, and every code I tried said I couldn’t use it because I wasn’t a “new” member. Okay, then you don’t get any of my money. Almost anything you can find on Skillshare you can find on Youtube, for free. $99 was pretty reasonable, but $167 is robbery. I had it for about 2 years, and in that time I think I used it a dozen times, if that, and not at all since mid-end of 2021. I’m so grateful I forgot to renew and it slipped my mind. At least now they can’t auto over-charge me for something I used sporadically. Skip this overpriced service and use the free ones. You’ll thank yourself later.
Great Project and Structured Curriculum
I really enjoyed having very helpful feedbacks on all of the projects
Provided in the designing courses.
I recommend anyone willing to upgrade their skillset or determined
To switch careers to try out the designing programs. The community
Is very supportive and the projects are challenging
I have a better understanding of new designs and continue to learn
Every day. The biggest benefit is being able to have the confidence to
Tackle new challenges using the material I learned.
Content is great, scoring not so much.
Now that I’m getting back into programming, I’ve been reading up some books on C# and have had a good time learning it. Decided to try CodeCademy again as an added resource to learn.
The explanations on everything are fairly simple, and the path of topics to learn is very digestible. The problem is every time you try to submit your code, CodeCademy is looking for very specific things.
On one of the earlier lessons, it wanted me to usen to write a new line.
I usedn in the same line, in only one Console. WriteLine(); method.
It printed out exactly what the lesson wanted in the console. But still gave me a big red X. I struggled to find what the problem was for a few minutes until finally checking for the solution.
Turns out, it wanted me to write three different Console. WriteLine(); statements. How frustrating. Not nearly as efficient.
And honestly that is just one example. Every other lesson this would happen, I would understand the material, write my code, it would say it didn’t work even when it did, and then I would have to guess what the computer wanted. It really messed with the pacing of my learning.
CodeCademy is like having an incredibly nitpicky teacher. It will slow down your progress. Even if the material is good stuff, but it feels like pulling teeth trying to figure out what exactly the computer who’s grading you wants.
This site has been so helpful in moving me forward in my career and making me feel comfortable. I will continue to take more courses to continue educating myself.
Best investment in myself
I truly feel like this was one of the best investments in myself as a continual learner. I love the variety of classes for just about anything I want to learn without being confined to just one area of study. It’s an amazing resource and I have had positive things to say about every teacher I’ve learned from, most recently digital drawing. The information has been usable and valuable.
