CodeCombat Needs Your Help

It’s hard to describe how much fun building CodeCombat has been for us. We’ve been working on this since February, and seeing it come together and showing it to others and receiving all this encouragement in the past week has boosted our happiness and energy sky-high. I personally can barely sleep at this point; I have to run around Berkeley just to temper the giddiness.

There are many people and organizations to thank, but one group in particular we have to thank is the open source community. The resources available for us to build upon are truly awesome. It’s a genie with infinite wishes; if we want a library or piece of software for one purpose or another, most often it’s just there on GitHub. And then there’s Stack Overflow, practically an oracle with millions of answers to tricky programming problems at the ready. Would that all the pieces and knowledge required for any labor of love be so accessible.

We want CodeCombat to be a part of that.

With any luck, this site will become much more than just a game for people to play. We want people involved and owning it at every level, from building campaigns to personally helping teach each other concepts to playing with and against one another to building the site itself. That’s a big challenge, and we can’t and don’t want to do it alone. CodeCombat should be about the programming community itself and how much fun it is to be part of it.

Interview with Paulo Ribeiro - E-Commerce in Brazil

On The 4 Hour Struggle

Paulo Ribeiro is a Brazilian entrepreneur, writer and avid reader. I have know him for a little over a year. In that time, he has become one of the most well-connected Brazilian bloggers; especially within the English-speaking blogging community. 

Many economists believe that, despite the worldwide recession, Brazil, the 5th most populated country in the world, is thriving.

American money has been pouring into the Brazilian E-Commerce Market:

-Quinstreet is a publicly traded educational lead company out of the US. They opened an office in Sao Paulo, Brazil

-Descomplica is Brazilan SAT type education provider that Peter Thiel invested in.
