< Code/Racer > is a cool way to learn web design and proper coding while challenging people. This multi-player live-coding game was built by the team behind TeamTreehouse, Think Vitamin and Carsonified.
The basic game is super simple, you login via FaceBook, wait for the rest of your competitors and boom you’re off. The system gives you elements that need to be coded into the page you’re creating for the game. Any mistakes after a pre determined time frame as elapsed will be fixed by the pit-crew. As you add the elements you’ll be given some coaching if you’re loosing and at the end you are told your place in the race. They have even added weapons that allow you to throw weird things at your opponents to slow them down. Coding with weapons.. whoddathunkit? Amazing.
It’s a fun way to learn coding and you will polish your skills pretty quickly. It’s free so go have some fun.
Now for those of you who want to take this learning to code business a bit further should check out TeamTreehouse.
