What is the SoloLearn PC app
To keep things fun, SoloLearn: Learn to Code offers a series of badges for tasks that range from completing the first lesson to creating lessons of your own. There’s also a spot for users to post their own code for others to try and comment on. Those who like to compete will be able to challenge other users to answer questions and complete challenges to see who comes out on top.
SoloLearn for Windows is a series of free apps that allows users to learn a variety of programming languages and concepts through short lessons, code challenges, and quizzes. Lessons are written with the beginner in mind, so anyone can learn to read and write their own code. The app is available for free download for iOS on the App Store here and for Android on Google Play here.
Who is SoloLearn for?
Beginner and intermediate software engineers who are looking to advance their skills to prepare for technical interviews or learn new languages could benefit from the exercises on the Platform.
It is a good tool for learning key concepts and rules but the questions are multiple choice. That means users do not need to write their own solutions to answer the problems. Because of this, beginners will likely want to use SoloLearn alongside a more hands-on learning platform.
It has lessons for the following programming languages and concepts. Users can take as many lessons as they want for free.
- Algorithms and data structures
- Machine learning
- Design Patterns
On the whole, this free set of coding lessons is a perfect option for those who want to get started without too much financial investment, but it’s best for teens. Although SoloLearn: Learn to Code includes ads, they aren’t intrusive. The lessons do tend to hand-hold the user by anticipating answers with a certain number of characters. This has the effect of leading the user, but it can also be confusing, as the questions don’t provide feedback until the answer is in the correct format.
If you think the answer is 9 (a single-character number), but it’s really 32, you simply can’t move forward until you insert a second character. While it’s possible to get stuck, you can always get a hint in the lesson or reach out to those on the discussion boards for assistance. The lessons themselves are clear and easy to follow, but starting with a basic foundation in some sort of coding logic will help fill in the gaps.
Finally, the cost. SoloLearn is advertised as a free app for learning code. While there is no price to download the app, SoloLearn doesn’t wait long to mention money. Before even accessing the main content, the app immediately presents an advertisement for their ‘Pro’ plan, which costs $6.99 a month or $47.99 a year (at the time of review). A free trial of the Pro plan is available with an auto-renewal subscription.
