Your profile page on Codecademy started as a list of the courses you had taken, but it quickly became overly complex as we expanded the variety of ways to interact with Codecademy and each other.
We’ve recently taken a step back and reworked your profile to better serve its most important purpose – to showcase who you are and what you’ve achieved on Codecademy.
Show who you are
We wanted to make your profile really easy to personalize. You can upload a photo, write about yourself, and share some basic information without leaving the page. To make it easier to share, you can access it at www.codecademy.com/[your username].
Show what you’ve accomplished
The old profile, like a report card, emphasized your progress – which courses you still had to do in a track. The new one highlights your accomplishments and contributions. At the moment, completing a track is the biggest accomplishment on Codecademy, so we show the tracks you’ve completed and are working on front and center.
And if you’ve created a course, everybody should know about it, so we spotlight the courses you’ve contributed.
Make it look good!
We’ve cleaned up and streamlined the new profile to make sure that people looking at it are able to get the important information they want. The visual style is also now consistent with the one first introduced in the new learning experience.
How can you get it?
You can opt in now, or wait until Monday at 4:30 PM EST, when we are going to switch it over to everyone. Let us know what you think about it and how we can make the profile best represent all your hard work and learning on Codecademy.
