How Did YOU Find Repl.it
PYer (2045)

Repl.it is one of many online coding platforms. How did you find this one? Did you do a google search? A friend? Why did you choose Repl.it over the many others that exist out there. Currently repl.it is one of the most popular. I will say that if i google's filtering and searching system were different, i wouldn't have found it. I found Repl.it with online python3. Comment below your own story!

Reasons so far:

  • Coding on multiple computers
  • Learning at school
  • Looking for better online compilers/interpreters
  • Searching on google for online <coding language>
  • Friends
  • Coding in school without downloading interpreters/compilers
  • Making games that wouldn't work on normal compilers/interpreters
  • Entering competitions that require repl.it
  • Storing code online. To show other people, or other uses

It's really cool to see how other people found repl.it. If I had been told to list as many reasons as I could, I would have gone with Bullet 1, Bullet 2, Bullet 3, and maybe Bullet 5.

I was looking for alternative's to scratch, eventually i found blockly then i converted blockly to python, remembered it then went to find a online code writer, then i found repl.it :P

@River_PlayzPlay cool. how long did it take you to learn python? i learnt it kind of slow, maybe because i was introduced to it before i saw block coding

@PYer im actually learning it still, and i find it pretty easy to learn as long as you write it a few times for example to remember the print command i made a little story using only the print command. as for scratch i learnt it in something called "coder dojo" it's basically just something you show up to and they teach kid's scratch and assign you different tasks, blockly i found in alternative's. (Oh and sorry for the bad grammar i tried my best im only 10 so yeah.)

@River_PlayzPlay How far did you get with Scratch?

@AS4 pretty dang far, i got to the point where i could make a little asteroid game but that was about it, i lost interest and got bored, so i decided to give up on coding and then a few years later here i am.

@River_PlayzPlay I was using quite advanced stuff with Scratch. Anyway pushing the boundaries of it.

@AS4 Just realized your icon is the flag on scratch

and i always knew you could go further but i decided not to due to a number of reasons. (one of them being i was 7 at the time and still in normal school and not home-school, meaning i had alot less free-time)

@River_PlayzPlay Yes. I am pintofmilk on scratch if you want to see what I have made. I put over some ridiculous 200 hours into one game https://scratch.mit.edu/users/PintOfMilk/

@AS4 You, Sir. Are a wonderful human being, I can only dream of being one who has the patience to spend 200 hours into one scratch game, you are amazing. lol

@River_PlayzPlay agreed. a lot of patience is required.

@PYer And such is the downfall of many coders, and honestly, I won't deny that I wasn't one of those at the start...or now...
