I wish they would change the name to something more distinct from Code Academy.
I always thought Codecademy.com and Codeacademy.org were the same company or at the very least sister companies; somehow related.
I think dandelany meant organic results, not sponsored links.
In any case, I didn't receive any ads for "code academy" on Google, so Codecademy's ranking is natural.
I genuinely believe the name to be Codecademy and not Code Academy. But overall I wish they'd just change the name period lol.
I get to the right site, but I continue to call their service the wrong name to everyone I talk about it with.
I'm curious how Codecademy plans to bridge this divid or if they have other plans in mind (which they probably aren't as willing to share with the masses)
It's easy for us experienced folk to say "forget that rubbish, build a portfolio" but that argument quickly falls apart in the context of teaching people who have no idea what programming even is and who want to explore it more. As much as I would love to have sat down at the age of 14, looked at a computer, and started pumping out concurrent, distributed Ruby web servers, it doesn't happen that way. You really do have to start from the basics, poking and prodding, until you can actually build anything worthwhile.

EDIT: all better now!
Edit: Got it to work, it was the firewall blocking something.
Is that like "reducing the duration of my procrastination"
I thought I left the guessing what the teacher was looking for behind when I finished college philosophy.
Anyone with experience with both -- Udacity and Codecademy -- recommend either one over the other?
But.... Given the time and focus, Codecademy will catch up.
EDIT: I'm using Chrome in Win7.
No idea why.
I heart Python. (I'm learning it as my first language). I've already passed much of what they are going through (at least in these introductory lessons), but I am super happy to have another resource to help me learn the language. Thanks for the post!
A bit sad it is only Python 2 though. Some of the stuff thought is not compatible with Python 3.
