This is my first post, and I’d like to say that I’m really excited to have begun playing CodeCombat. I’ve been interested in the idea of using games to teach programming skills for a while, playing with different games and things on a similar path. I think it’s awesome how CodeCombat is open to let players learn further by getting involved in the actual building.
I’m not an “official” teacher, but helping others learn to code and get into technology is something I love to do. I’ve been working on getting a CoderDojo going in my area, and I can definitely see CodeCombat becoming a part of that.
Anyway, onto my question: what role does experience and leveling play in the game?
