Gain XP, unlock achievements and climb the leaderboard. It's the fastest, easiest, most addictive way to learn.

Once the basics of programming are understood, it can be difficult to understand how or why those concepts are applied. The most effective way a beginner can approach learning to code is by breaking the learning process into three broad segments or “phases”.

1. Learn syntax.
2. Solve problems.
3. Make stuff.

There is currently a complete lack of attention on the second segment. A beginner must go directly from learning syntax to making things without any real understanding of how the syntax is used to solve problems. In other words, the beginner has not yet learned how to *think like a programmer*, yet they are expected to solve problems like a programmer.

Edabit was created to bridge this gap.
