Mimo Press Kit

This is a Medium MediaKit


Learn to code, make apps, build websites, automate tasks, and more — whenever and wherever you have a minute! With 1,000+ bite-size lessons, real-world projects, and challenges, mastering future-proof skills has never been so easy to fit into your day.

App name: Mimo

Tagline: Learn to code on the go

Description: Mimo is an app that teaches app-making, website-building, hacking, and more in a fun and interactive way on the go.

How it works: Mimo brings topics that normally fill books, classes, and video sessions into bite-size lessons that don’t take longer than a minute to complete and, therefore, work anytime and anywhere.

Every lesson contains a 140-character introduction, a code snippet to interact with, and a feedback sentence that pops up after every interaction. As users complete the lessons, they collect points, badges, and other achievements.

At present, Mimo comes with an introduction to programming for absolute beginners as well as courses on how to make apps, build websites, become a hacker, automate tasks, master the command line, and more. On a regular basis, Mimo’s content will grow and, soon, cover topics like Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Hardware, Machine Learning.

A limited amount of content on Mimo is free for everyone. Mimo Premium is an annual subscription for $65.99.
