Treehouse exists for web development, Wigolia for the fine arts, now Chesscademy rides in to help you learn from the best on the finer points of chess. Curated video lessons by professional chess coach and Life National Master Andrew Ng as well as others. Following a similar structure of Treehouse with basics, intermediate and a diving deep course Chesscademy provides a comprehensive educational curriculum for players of all levels.
Learn from videos and exercises, practice with puzzles, and discuss chess topics in groups. It’s as if Treehouse busted out its same platform but just for those interested in the strategic game that is chess. All the topics to date are brought by Life National Master Andrew Ng, a 7-time National Chess Champion, with more lessons promised to be on the way.
Their goal is to provide free, high quality lessons for people around the world who want to learn how to play chess or improve their play. Thus becoming the first chess website to provide a “Web 2.0 experience”. It’s unusual to see a well designed flat UI inspired chess forum, but Chesscademy will make anyone that doesn’t know the difference between a pawn and a bishop want to learn.
