Creating a Codecademy Account and Submitting Your Username
Codecademy is a free beginner-friendly collection of browser-based coding tutorials. It’s simple, easy-to-use, and will help you start writing your own code in minutes.
Visit http://www.codecademy.com to create an account. Select one of the buttons outlined in red in order to create an account.
All applicants are required to submit their Codecademy username on their Zip Code application. Submitting your username verifies that you’ve created an account and allows us to track your progress through the Codecademy course.
Depending on the method you used to create a Codecademy account, you may or may not have indicated your preferred username. In order to find your correct username, first log in to your account. Once logged in, click the circular avatar (outlined in red) at the upper right-hand corner of the screen. On click, a drop down box will appear. Select “My Account” from the available options (outlined in red).
Once you are in the My Account section of Codecademy, you can find your correct username located within the “Username (required)” box (outlined in red). Copy and paste the information from that box and place it in the required field on our application.
The tutorial must be completed on a desktop or laptop device. You will not be able to use Codecademy on your phone or tablet.
If you have any questions about creating an account and submitting your username, please contact [email protected]. Zip Code Wilmington is unable to answer any questions related to the content of the Codecademy class.
