      Khan academy is a bit more on the school kind of stuff, it's not yet in the programming & coding arena.

      Although there are sections about programming (which are not necessarily strong in quality), it is not the primary focus on this website. This is a fantastic site, however, to study math with.

    7. Code.org is a non-profit whose goal is to expose all students to computer programming. We believe that computer programming is a liberal art; it's something EVERY student in the world should be exposed to at some point in their childhood education.
    8. The Odin Project is one of those "What I wish I had when I was learning" resources. Not everyone has access to a computer science education or the funds to attend an intensive coding school and neither of those is right for everyone anyway.
