CheckiO is a pretty cool site that emphasizes the game and social aspects
coding puzzles, and it a fun way to sharpen your Python skills. Like other
sites like CodeWars, you solve posed problems in code for points.

Where it differs from sites like CodeWars is it is more explicitly set up
as a game, and more likely to be interesting to school-age programmers. It
also focuses completely on Python.

Unfortunately, I haven't found within CheckiO a good on-ramp... Like other
sites, it assumes you already know how to code. With the more gamey nature
of CheckiO (versus say the more StackOverflowish feel of CodeWars), I think
it would be a great new way to learn Python. You *could* learn to program
with the current set up, but you'd have to be quite dedicated. It presumes
you already know what arrays and for loops, etc. are as best as I can tell.

Anyway, check it out... it's a fun way to hone your programming skills.

CheckiO was also a startup sponsor of PyOhio, and is active in the Python
