Amateurish instruction

2.0 rating
January 24, 2021

I have been using Codecademy for a few months. They have a very text-based lesson plan that quickly turns to providing the user solutions to problems rather than teaching. There are giant holes in what the beginner will learn and what they will be expected to know. Terms, functions, methods are often left out of the lesson discussion, yet appear in the projects. This is a theme for many other coding places. I assume most of the content is made by amateurs and that is the result you can expect for yourself as you progress through the pathways. The forums seem to be fed by “volunteers” that for some reason have hours of free time, indicating that they are probably propped up by Codecademy as employees to blow smoke and positivity at the paying customers. That would be great if the content was equally relevant, coherent, and useful. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Maybe it is a good place to start but do not pay full price and get ready to take your money elsewhere if you would like to make any practical coding advancements.

Terrible experience. The content is often worse than what you can find for free on youtube, and they charged me for a year without notice. TOTAL SCAM! I recommend you stay away and just find info on youtube instead.

I had the chance to try courses for free but I still hate them. The lack of communication between the course creators and course takes is horrid. A lot of the courses are extremely outdated (5 years old or more), the programs recommended/shown to use don’t look the same. The peer-graded assignments are a freaking joke, a waste of time. There is no real way to learn anything if other people just leave max points and almost no comments.If I had paid for any of the courses I would be pissed off. This is not worth any money, even for free this isn’t wort it. Bad, bad, bad…
