Unable to connect to Codeacademy

Yesterday, I begun the learn git course at work and it was working fine. I went back to continue today and all it’s showing is an “Unable to connect to Codeacademy” message.
Relevant info:

  • using Windows 10 Pro
  • tried deleting my account and creating a new one
  • tried Chrome, Firefox and IE
  • tried other courses
    Have attached what it looks like…
    Thanks in advance

I’m having the same issue today with the Javascript and SQL courses. Tried in both Firefox and IE, cleared cache/cookies etc…still no luck. I assume its server issues.

For the last two days, I’ve been having the same problem with the Learn Git tutorial.
I can’t find any announcements anywhere saying there’s a server problem.
I’ve tried on several PC’s and on different browsers with no luck

Any updates on this @danieloduffy?

There aren’t any site outages or anything like that going on. First of all, I’d like to make sure that you aren’t behind some kind of firewall, we get lots of reports about users with websocket issues and their internet connection, and that’s usually what’s behind connection issues.

Same thing with https://www.codecademy.com/courses/learn-angularjs/lessons/your-first-app/exercises/your-first-app-hello-angularjs-i?action=lesson_resume.

Then tried Python and it loaded just fine. (https://www.codecademy.com/courses/introduction-to-python-6WeG3/0/1?curriculum_id=4f89dab3d788890003000096)
