Codeacademy – Fun Way To Learn How To Program

Posted in design, ideas, internet, web by aldorf on August 19, 2011

Codecademy is the easiest way to learn how to code. It’s interactive, fun, playful and you can do it with your friends.

Ryan and Zach were students at Columbia before they started to work on Codecademy. They’ve worked at NYC startups, given numerous lectures on topics in programming, and are now living in Silicon Valley. Codecademy was created when Zach got frustrated with learning how to program. For years, Ryan taught Zach the basics of HTML and CSS, but books and videos didn’t help. Create your own account and get started.

Random Act of Kindness meets Carrot Mob meets Art Project – Love it

Posted in art, inspiration, internet by aldorf on June 8, 2011

Carrot mobs are one of my favorite inventions in recent years.

Store Buyout is an art project where five artists arrived at Hercules Fancy Grocery in NYC and bought everything. Every item has been repurposed as art and will be sold online and for a limited time at the Store Buyout Gallery in LES. Money from the sales is going towards saving Hercules store. For more details please visit http://www.storebuyout.com. Stay tuned, more art is on its way.
