Starting CodeYear of Codecademy again...

Code Year by Codecademy was one big phenomenal attempt to teach people like me to code, when it started early this year.

I was one of the few who signed up on the very first day.

Eventually, the first lesson rolled out and I completed that also, and then it all fizzed out.

After that I just could not keep the pace with the new lessons being rolled out every week and I fell farther and farther short.

One of the reason was that off-late I had been already tinkering with PHP, Python and sometimes with Ruby and the language chosen by Codecademy was Javascript.

Now, it was like one more new language to me, when I was already burdened with a lot of material to work with in the other three languages.

So somewhere, I kept myself to PHP and to some lesser extent to Python.

All this while I had registered for Coursera's CS101 of Stanford too, being taught by Nick Parlante.

The course was to finish on 5th June 2012.

I started working on it on 29th of May 2012 and finished it in less than 24 hours on 30th of May 2012.

The course was really interesting with Nick touching on all the basic aspects of Computer Science , including a bit on hardware too.

It was I felt a bit easier than Udacity's CS101.

But then I complete…
