General Assembly

After the successful launch of their first online class in 2014, General Assembly set out to create a more scalable platform in order to build a suite of online education courses. The most technical aspect of the web-based platform is the interface in which students practice solving programming challenges. The biggest challenges were creating a language-agnostic design to support both existing and future curricula, as well as ensuring the appropriate amount of flexibility to teach students best practices while allowing individuality in their coding style.
