For a free online resource to how to code - specifically, Javascript - there's always CodeAcademy as well.

I haven't done much with it yet, but the Khan Academy Computer Science videos are pretty solid too.

Codecademy is good for getting started, but it has its limitations as you move on through programming.

Agreed. I think it's a great place to start.

There was this online Python website which guided you through everything, with a built-in interpreter. You created an account and progressed through the language. I started the course but didn't finish it, but would like to - the only thing is, I've completely forgotten what website it was. Anyone know what website I'm talking about?

Codecademy has a Python track with the in-site intepreter... It could the one you're talking about.

Thank you! This is it, although I forgot my username so I'm just linking it with my Google account; I've forgotten most of the more advanced stuff anyway.
