With the Live Code Sandboxes on Wrox.com, we have eliminated the need for complicated desktop tools, removing one of the biggest impediments to learning to code.
Indianapolis, Ind. (PRWEB) April 08, 2015
Wiley’s Live Code Sandbox on Wrox.com, powered by Programmr, lets users tinker with and run any code listing in the Wrox book instantly – using only a web browser. The sandbox also enables users to easily assess their coding skills on a given topic without the need to install any technologies on their computer. With this paradigm shift to learning coding interactively, readers will be able to “learn by doing” by gaining a complete hands-on experience of the coding subject while reading the book.
“We’re very excited to work with Wiley to launch their interactive Live Code Sandboxes on Wrox.com” said Rajesh Moorjani, founder and CEO of Programmr. “We see this as a big step towards the future of online coding education where users can gain complete hands-on mastery of a subject right while reading the theory.”
"We’re delighted to launch these new interactive sandboxes that help students practice and improve their coding skills online,” said Jim Minatel, Associate Publisher for Wrox. “The idea of adding a hands-on environment as a complement to our print or digital coding books is very novel and relevant at the same time. We are eager to see how our readers take to this innovative way of enhancing their programming skills. With the Live Code Sandboxes on Wrox.com, we have eliminated the need for complicated desktop tools, removing one of the biggest impediments to learning to code."
Features of the Wrox.com Live Code Sandboxes include:
- Allowing users to run code listings from the associated Wrox book in a single click
- The ability to edit, tinker with, recompile and run the code instantly for better understanding
- Letting users assess their skills by attempting coding exercises on the given topic
Programmr’s online coding technology allows users to code, compile and run any type of program or app completely online – console, web and mobile. It includes all of the primary features available in desktop IDEs like Eclipse such as runtime syntax highlighting, auto-complete and code folding. Programmr helps users master and assess their programming skills hands-on.
