Welcome to Code with Replit
In this series of tutorials, you'll go from beginner to expert in coding with Replit. While these lessons are designed to be taken in order, they each make sense on their own too, so feel free to jump in wherever looks the most interesting to you.
Part 1 - beginner tutorials - Replit features
The first part of the series teaches you to use specific Replit features. You'll learn how to use Replit for everything from solving basic maths problems to building production-grade software, integrating with other tools like GitHub.
Part 2 - intermediate tutorials - building fun and useful projects
In the second part of the series, you'll work through a set of projects, including chatbots, games, and more. We are constantly expanding these, so feel free to let us know if there are any topics you want to see included.
If you prefer video, here's a quick start walkthrough, or read the text tutorials below.
Part 1: beginner tutorials - Replit features
In this section of the course, you'll learn the basics of Replit. But that doesn't mean you won't build some fun stuff along the way.
Introduction to Replit and using the IDE
Learn the basics of the Replit IDE. Why use an online IDE and what are all those different panes? Build a simple program to solve your maths homework.
Managing dependencies with Replit
No one is an island, and if you build software you'll build it on top of existing modules that others have written. Here we show you how to work with other people's code in a variety of ways: in many cases all you need to do is import antigravity and fly away.
Data science: plotting and graphing
Data is only useful if it can be easily understood. Plots, charts, and graphs are the easiest way to know what's happening in the world around you. And did you know that data science is the sexiest job of the 21st century? Follow along to plot every city in the USA and find out if richer people live longer.
Pair programming and using multiplayer
Did we mention that no one is an island? Coders don't have to work alone. You can invite your friends to code along with you, a technique used by beginners and experts alike. Learn how to code collaboratively, as if you were using a Google Doc.
Running projects from GitHub
Most open-source software lives on GitHub and it's easy to take advantage of all of this free software by pulling code from GitHub to Replit and running it with one click. Some software needs to be configured in specific ways so you'll also learn how to modify what happens when you press that big green "run" button.
Building a game with PyGame
Do you want to develop games? Of course, you can do that with Replit too. We'll build a 2D juggling game using PyGame in this lesson and you'll learn more about graphics programming at the same time: sprites, physics, and more.
Can you keep a secret? What about from time travellers?
Have you been hacked? It's only a matter of time if you haven't. Learn how to keep your secrets safe, even when coding in public spaces. Pro tip: if you accidentally paste a password into your code and then remove it, others might still find it in your history, so you'll learn how to navigate that too.
Creating a name-splitting application using test driven development
Build a system to split users' names into first name and last name. We'll follow test-driven-development best-practices along the way so you can be sure your code does what you think it does.
Become an elite hacker with productivity hacks
Have you seen the Matrix? Learn to be the Neo of coding by getting more than one cursor, using keyboard shortcuts, and all of the other productivity features that Replit offers. You'll be soon producing more code in less time.
Keeping your data in check with the Replit database
Now that you are starting to build larger and more complicated applications, it is time to start using databases to keep your data clean and secure.
