Experience the excitement as your supporters cheer for you, live in an e-sports style.

Everybody can be a part of this! All you need to do is login to http://CodeCombat.com/ and complete your first level. Absolutely no prior coding experience is required. What’s more, it’s free! CodeCombat has been played by over 4 million students around the world as part of the annual hour of code promoted by Code.org.
