Codecademy.comProgramming isn’t for everybody, and no matter how hard some people try and how many books and videos they get their hands on, there is always a certain point they can’t get past. And if you’re there yourself right now and you feel like giving up, then this site might be all you need to pull through. Codeacademy will give you a series of interactive programming tutorials right on your browser, with the emphasis firmly put on giving you a fun and relaxed experience. As a matter of fact, you can use the site without even needing to register first. Codeacademy invites you to start coding right as you land on its homepage, and it gently guides you along for a couple of lessons. And then, when you’re hooked, it asks you to register for an account in order not to loss your progresses.

On Codecademy, lessons revolve around completing some increasingly-difficult tasks, and a web-based terminal is provided for you to type the code, the way you see fit. It will be instantly executed, and you will be able to correct any mistakes that you might have made right away.

Users of Codecademy are given points for all the exercises they get right, and (later) they even get trophies to feature on their profile pages. And it seems pretty likely that tournaments and competitions will be implemented in the near future.

And if you are already familiarized with Java (or when you think you have achieved a certain degree of mastery here), then getting acquainted with something like Grails might as well be the logical step in your evolution as a programmer.
