CodeCombat is a computer-based educational program that teaches programming languages and computer science principles in a challenging, entertainment-based approach. It offers a framework for teaching multiple programming languages like Python and Clojure as high-level languages and HTML and Javascript as scripting languages.

The software features 11 different learning modules that are designed across core software web development categories, computer game development categories, and fundamental computer science principles. Learning is crafted to accommodate self-paced learning, as well as a structured curriculum that is attractive to school districts and individual learning institutions. The software is suitable for teaching programming and computer science principles to learners, age 9 to 16, but also to adult learners that identify with online learning systems.

CodeCombat is an innovative way of teaching and having fun, you would be saying to yourself: how? CodeCombat offers the user the ability of teaching on how to code in Python, Java and other programming languages while playing a fun videogame. The idea is pretty simple, you start the game with a lot of puzzles and stuff to complete but you need to code whats required to finish the game, alongside the teachers that will be explaining you what to do and how to do it, it a great alternative to start learning!
