Codecademy Becomes A Platform: Now Anyone Can Write Programming Tutorials | TechCrunch
One of the most buzzed-about startups over the last few months has been Codecademy — a site that looks to make programming accessible to just about  anyone, with a variety of interactive, web-based courses that have users  writing their first lines of code within a few seconds. The site’s  ‘Code Year’ program, which invites users to receive one programming  lesson each week, racked up a whopping 100,000 signups in only 48 hours — and it even has the White House on board.
But, as anyone who has spent much time on the site can attest to,  Codecademy has had one big problem: there just aren’t that many lessons  available. And the ones that are on there sometimes seem to be  moving too quickly, without many practice exercises to explore and  reinforce what you’ve just learned.
Today, the company is launching a feature that will go a long way toward fixing that. Meet the Codecademy Course Creator.
