"Code Academy" enables people to learn website coding skills at home on their own


There is a new startup that enables people to learn some web programming, specifically in  Javascript, HTML, CSS, Python, and Ruby. The “learn to code” site is called “Code Academy” (maybe in the spirit of Khan Academy), and has the logical name, link here.

The website tracks a customer's progress with lessons, and could be included in a resume package in a job search. 
  
I would need something more like java (itself), Visual Basic or C#, in the appropriate environment, reading a database, as for my knowledge management and opposing viewpoints ideas (“BillBoushka” blog, Feb. 29, 2012).  This would all require the appropriate environment with ASP and ADO.

The founder of Code Academy is 21-year-old Zach Sims, with a typical story here. Sims says that "Coding is 21st Century literacy".  
    

CNN reported today about an innovation that would allow people wearing certain kinds of contact lenses to see text messages from their smartphones on their contacts.  How would that affect the “distracted driving” issue?
