  • I recommend that you look out for the Learn Jazz Piano course on FL when it launches. It is taught by Ray d'Inverno, who wrote one of the standard text books on relativity theory, and is also a fantastic pianist!

    The course is aimed at beginners, so I am trying to get them up and running with the minimal amount of code. I agree that eventually, having standards compliant HTML documents would be a good target for the learners as they develop their web coding skills, but that is not my main target here. I will add some...

  • Hello Ant,

    Thanks for the questions about CodeCircle. I'll answer them here:

    Where is my code being stored?

    - the code is stored in a database cluster running on servers hosted by Linode https://www.linode.com/

    - we developed codecircle to help with our teaching...

  • Hi Phil, thanks for the heads up. Somebody flagged the document so it became hidden from public view. I have fixed that now.

  • Hello folks, I have just updated the T and C's, and made the purple fonts white for the sign up form. Regarding fonts in the code editor, you can boost the size of the fonts with the set of widgets at the top of the editor pane. (magnifying glass). It is not possible to change the colours right now.
