Interactive websites are great for learning programming

I self study programming, and one of my favorite ways to learn are websites with interactive exercises. Here are some examples.

These types of websites have three great properties.

  • They dice the lessons and problems into very small, bite sized pieces.
  • They give you exercises. Exercises are like doing your math homework. They’re essential.
  • The exercises are interactive and are easily done in the browser. No pen and paper needed. Quick, efficient, less boring.

Anyway, just wanted to share this tip with you guys. I’m not connected to the above websites in any way. I just think that websites with interactive problems are great, and I wish there were more of them.

If you know of other websites like these, please post them in the comments below. I’ll probably end up doing them cover to cover 🙂

edit: Here’s some additional websites.
