8-Bit Learn to Code Platform!

👋 Hello Devs!

I’m Sonny, Founder and Chief Vibes Officer of Codédex, a brand new learn to code platform for high schoolers and college students.

We are beyond excited to announce that we just launched! 🥳🚀🎉

https://www.codedex.io

After working at the intersection of education and technology for the past seven years, I found that project-based learning and gamification are the most effective ways to keep young students engaged in their coding journey.

Mix that in with a touch of 8-bit aesthetics, and we aim to create nothing short of a magical experience. 👾

This v1.0 launch includes:

  • 📱 Mobile view
  • 🔓 Challenge unlock
  • 🏃‍♂️ User progress
  • ⏳ User streak
  • 📛 Badges
  • 🛠 Project tutorials
  • 🏗 React & Next.js

Please check out Codédex and let me know what you think! 🙏

P.S. Here’s the team saying hi:

Looks nice. The style reminds old arcade games. I guess this is intentional given the audience. I am far in age from high school.

Congrats. 😁👍

Awesome! I love the 8-bit style, will check it out. Why python?

Thanks Eelco! Please do and let me know your thoughts~

We picked Python because we want it to do a general-purpose language first before moving to Web Dev!

This looks amazingly familiar. My resume website is built exactly like this take a look here jasmeetsinghbhatia.github.io/resume/

Anyhow, amazing platform and really good use of the 8-bit to keep users engaged with learning exercises.
