Ever wanted to try your hand at coding, but found the task too daunting, or the lessons too boring? CodeCombat is an online game where you’ll solve puzzles using real-text code.

As you make your way through the levels, you’ll learn coding concepts and use real coding languages such as: JavaScript, Python, or C++. You will even have an opportunity to use your coding knowledge to see how it works in web development and game development.

Once you’ve mastered the basics, you’ll even have an opportunity to try your hand at the AI Combat league where you get to pit your own computer code against others around the world, making changes and adapting your code to match what your opponents are doing to make your code as strong as possible.

Your Vaughan Public Library card is your key to adventure and a future in coding. Come and check out CodeCombat and see what it’s all about.
