Codecademy, founded by Zack Sims and Ryan Bubinsky as part of the latest Y Combinator batch, is a totally free, easy-to-use and fun way to learn code.

Codecademy, with its fresh and easy to understand interface, hopes to be the answer for those looking to be the “tech” involved in any part of their entrepreneurial lives.
