A major bugfix that really made my day was the implementation of smart profile pic changing. I was having trouble changing my profile picture last week and I sent an email to them. It looks like they fixed the profile pic issue and you can upload any major file format picture to adjust your pic. I’m using a pizza cat picture that a friend of mine made. I hope she doesn’t mind…it’s just that those cats really get me in the mood to learn about Boolean true and false statements.
To make things even more awesome, Codecademy has streamlined the process for users to create their own interactive lessons and tutorials for the greater Codecademy community. So this means I was going through the functions lessons and then one day I noticed that I had more coursework to do. That’s because another user created additional lessons for us all to complete. It was so strange because I thought I had finished everything in that section already. That’s the beauty of a living and breathing coding environment. People can make the coursework more robust by adding exercises which stretch the comprehension of the students. It’s very exciting to see new lessons pop up every week or so.
