6- Encode

The Encode: Learn to Code mobile app is a decent tool to use if you wish to practice your coding skills. Not only does it have mini lessons, but also daily challenges which help you to develop your skills further and keep you practicing.

7- Enki

Enki separates itself a little bit somewhat from the rest of the coding apps on this list as it is a paid service that comes in the form of two packages. The first is a $50 a year payment which gives you access to a community as well as lessons. However, if you wish for a more traditional learning experience you will have to fork out $350 a year to be enrolled into a specific coding camp. Additionally, Enki offers its services not only to individuals but also teams/companies.

8- Codecademy Go

Codecademy is somewhat similar to Enki in that it is a paid service which is offered to individuals as well as teams. Members with standard free accounts are able to access only the most basic content, however Pro members (who are required to pay £15.99 a month) will be able to access all the necessary knowledge required to become a full-stack engineer, front-end engineer, data scientist etc…
