This week, @jess and I focused on gamified coding. More specifically, we talked about games that turn the experience of coding into a fun, educational challenge, what's important for developers to understand about this awesome category of software development, and more.

In this episode, we were joined by two developer guests who taught us a lot about gamifying the coding learning process...

  • Charlotte Cheng, Senior Curriculum Developer at CodeCombat — an educational video game for learning software programming concepts, Python, JavaScript, and HTML.

  • Kevin Whinnery, Lead Developer of TwilioQuest at Twilio — a PC role-playing game that teaches people how to code.
