It would be great to have C#, C++, Rust courses in freecodecamp.org. I know that I can learn by their docs but testing my skills here would be awesome.
I don’t find one for rust, but I looked at articles with “rust” tag: https://www.freecodecamp.org/news/tag/rust/
Anyway, freeCodeCamp wants to focus on few things, and also make so that all the curriculum can be done in browser, preferibly without changing website.
At this time, the curriculum is also going through a big overhaul, adding Python and moving to a project-based curriculum.
I don’t think there is the man-power to add many other languages.
But you can find a lot of interesting stuff in the youtube channel and in the \news
It would be nice if freecodecamp become a home for every developers out there. But, you are right, for web development JS is really powerful.
I think you are right, It’s about the man-power. I hope in the future freecodecamp will do it.
Hopefully they can do as many different languages as possible in the future, but guess that’s not there yet.
IMHO, I would say its more about us (the staff and thousands of kind volunteers) trying to focus our efforts on a few things and not overwhelm new-comers. The current curriculum is quite exhaustive as is and it still does not begin to scratch the surface.
freeCodeCamp.org’s interactive learning platform is not a one-stop shop. It simply augments our community based learning. Our Youtube channel is a proven source for so many topics. People have gotten jobs after having watched our videos and not knowing that our learning paltform exists too!
Speaking of the techincal challenges, yes some learning experiences work well in the browser (interactive learning), which is where our focus is at the minute. Some really do not fit in the browser based learning approach. Sometimes, You simply need to be closer to the “metal”. We try to balance the learning experiences the best we can, trying to keep things accessible to all - our core goal.
That said, there is lot in the works *wink* *wink*. The staff team is building some exciting things. Stay tuned.
I strongly disagree. The C family is very much in use and is very powerful.
I like both Python and C, but each has their time and place. C is more powerful and Python is more flexible. Both are in heavy use.
As web assembly becomes more popular C/C++/Rust will play a more prominent role in web development. Finally, we old-schoolers will become relevant again
