The Hour of CodeCombat

Next week, Code.org is putting on the Hour of Code for Computer Science Education Week, and it's going to be epic. Last year they tried to introduce ten million students to coding in one week, but actually they got fifteen million. This year they're going extra global and shooting for a hundred million students, and CodeCombat is happy to help out as one of the tutorial partners that students can choose.

We've been gearing up for this for four months to make an awesome beginner programming experience–the one we all wish we had had when we were younger to show us how much fun coding can be, or even that we could do it at all (no one ever told us). Here's a tiny list of the new stuff we've come up with:
