  1. I am very new to the whole coding thing and remembering what everything does. I especially love how easy your codecamp solutions are to understand compared to others I have seen on the internet. Right now I am learning the codecamp stuff but I recently found another place like it called learn.co. I was wondering if you heard of it. It has introduced me to Ruby which I really like compared to the javascript stuff but they also have videos explaining more than what codecamp lessons has. I’m just trying to take advantage of all the free stuff I can find and I really love how informative your site is about your experience and everything else.
