Congrats on Codecademy’s new look - I guess you probably got new funding and hired new designers who want to show what they can do. As a long time fan of Codecademy, I’m glad for you.
But… honestly I haven’t found much REAL experience enhancement - just more colors to your website, which actually is distracting from your content, and that’s what I think is your gold. On surface things look slick, more polished, but no REAL improvement… instead I find it not matching the geeky, down to earth, no non-sense style that I associate Codecademy with. I used to be amazed by the rich offerings of Codecademy; now the whole site feels a bit…barren.
Maybe I’m just not getting used to a changed Codecademy, and I understand the necessity of change for a company to grow. So I don’t want to comment more on your new UI. I just want to remind you- if anyone in your company really cares ever get to read this-of the essence of Codecademy, what makes you unique, and why it was created in the first place.
Maybe you’ve made up your mind to part ways - it’s okay; I just feel a little sad because I genuinely liked Codecademy and have been recommending it to many people. Anyway, congrats and good luck!
