One of the things that really frustrated me when I was learning JS was what I call the "foggy bridge". It's this place where everything on the left of the bridge is too easy while everything on the right is too hard. So you're stuck wandering this foggy bridge not knowing what you don't know. I created edabit to help its users get past this "foggy bridge" faster than they otherwise would. I think there is a real need for something like this.

When I post something decent to reddit, I generally always post it here on voat too.

I've been doing a lot of thinking these past couple months about what the best approach to learning to code is and I've come up with the following three phases.

  1. Learn the syntax
  2. Solve problems
  3. Make stuff

Right now edabit is really good at #2. The good news is any introduction to [insert language here] will get you past #1. It's very easy to learn the basic syntax. The hard part is learning to think like a programmer (solve problems with the syntax).

Also, #2 and #3 are not mutually exclusive. You can (and should) do both at the same time.

That makes no sense. Coding is formal logic; regardless of where you live that won't change. A Western developer must understand the logic of their programming language in order to be creative within the confines of those parameters.

I'm not on here too much (mostly reddit) so the contact form would be best or matt@edabit.com which is where the contact form messages go. Thanks!

Ok I will add this soon. Should be very easy to implement. If you want to do full screen coding, hit ctrl + f when the editor is in focus. That's the only shortcut I've got at the moment.
