In this article, I have compiled a list of 10 free websites to practice Python online. On these websites, you can find various Python problem sets and solve them right in their online IDE. The problem sets comprise of different expertise level starting from the beginners and up to pro level. In addition to that, some of these even provide you hints and solutions.
CodeCombat is a free website to practice Python online while playing a game. In the game, you will have to write the code to move the character up, down, left, right, etc and make it collect all the gems without touching the spikes and while hiding from the ogres. You can either write the code to move the character line by line or all at once and then run it to see if you win the game or not. Of course, if the character collects all the gems without getting caught by ogres, you will win the game. If not, then you can start the game again.
I just played a couple of starter levels and they were very easy to code. The other levels of the game include “Game Development” and ” Web Development” which are initially locked. Basically, it is for kids as no hardcore code is required to win the game. You will have to invoke some functions to move the player and then get the job done to pass a level. So, if you want your kids to learn Python and coding skills, you can spend some time with him on CodeCombat as it is pretty easy to grasp. I can’t say how other modules that I mentioned work, so, you can explore them at your end.
