Coding bat

CodingBat is a free site of live coding problems for students to build their skills in Java and Python. CodingBat emphasises building and practicing small code problems as a means of developing these skills. Students can select particular areas of coding on which to concentrate. An interactive interface is provided and CodingBat has a basic authoring feature where anyone can write his or her own problems.
