Overview

Learn to code, make apps, build websites, automate tasks, and more — no matter how much experience and time you have. Mimo creates a personalized curriculum with fun and effective exercises, projects, and challenges that fit into your daily routine and keep you motivated.

App name: Mimo

Tagline: Learn to Code

Description: Mimo is a platform that teaches app-making, website-building, hacking, and more in a fun and effective way — online or 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 exercise contains a 140-character introduction, a code snippet to interact with, and immediate feedback 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 a subscription for $29.99–49.99.
