Since the beginning of Codecademy, we’ve worked with the programming community to help them share knowledge. People posting tutorials to their own blogs started to move over to Codecademy, benefiting from the millions of people taking their courses and the status that came with being a teacher with one of the largest audiences in the world. You, as users and contributors, are empowered to choose what to learn and who to learn it from. We’ve heard endless requests for PHP—one of the world’s most popular programming languages—and we spent the past few weeks thinking of an experiment to help you both learn and teach PHP.
Today, we’re kicking off the launch of PHP on Codecademy with a lesson we created. We’re opening up the entire track for contributions from the community—help pick up where we started and let’s build the web’s best PHP course together. If you’re more interested in taking PHP than helping to teach it, you can help, too. Share PHP with your friends and ask them to help out by tweeting or emailing them.
The content and collaboration that make Codecademy a great place to learn are all thanks to you, and as we work to achieve the best possible learning experience for all users, we’re calling on you to help shape the future of the community and its course offerings. You’ll notice that only the first course in the PHP track has been completed; we’re looking to you, the millions of users who work to make this site awesome, to help direct and build tomorrow’s content.
Go ahead and start learning PHP, and if you’re ready to take charge of your curriculum, tell us what you want to teach!
