There are 9 Lessons with 5 tasks each and 1 review quiz at the end of the tutorials. These lessons range from "Introduction to the concepts in lessons 1-10" "Learn what a variable is and why you need them" to "Learn how + works with strings and numbers".
Code Avengers lessons were designed with the following key principles:
* Beginner terminology - use words familiar to non-programmers
* Less reading more doing – learners want to read as little as possible
* Difficulty level – senior high school students are able to complete the lessons
* Explain the why and not just the what when teaching new concepts
* Incorporate badges, points, levels - everyone loves getting badges
* Quality feedback - effective interactive tutorials must detect and offer helpful feedback when the learners make mistakes
* Practical examples - lessons include examples that are as ‘real world’ as possible
* Games and code challenges – goal is for the lessons to be fun and effective
Code Avengers is great for teachers and students. Founded by Michael Walmsley and co-founded by Andrew Gale, Code Avengers looks to make the site as friendly and easy to use while provide a great learning experience for all its users.
One nice thing I like about the site is it saves your work in progress and if you make a mistake, no problem, they detect it and offer feedback. Check out the Infographic I made below to find out some of the lessons offered within the site.
CodeAvengers.com: Learning to code just got MARVELous
I have been into mobile development lately with developing apps and HTML 5, so I get allot of E-mails and people on Linked in Groups asking me about a simple way to implement a Redirection code for mobile devices.
If you are browsing this site or blog with your mobile device you are already viewing the redirection code in action, there is also a choice to view this website in original mode.
*Update- Mobile Moxie has a Redirection Script Generator that generates a server side script for sites that are Desktop, Tablet, Mobile or WAP and directs your users to the preferred choice.

I used to add allot more codes on the blog. but lately I've been all caught up into the marketing aspect of things and now and then I seem to lose tract of what this site is really for .
If you have questions , codes or just want to introduce yourself go ahead. Take advantage and drop a link to your site as well, don't forget to fill out your profile and let everyone know about your site and or services.
The OnClick message Button is good for instructions and warnings or can be used for a simple hello message. Visit link above to view the source code and try the working Demo.
