CheckiO invites beginners and more experienced users to an archipelago full of exciting programming challenges. Each Island, like Elementary, Scientific Expedition, and Codeship, features a series of small coding tasks that you need to beat to proceed to the next island. As you become more and more confident with each newly conquered island, you explore more of the map.
Each Island is now a Station, and each coding game is a
mission.js file. For each Mission, you’ll see the code file and a brief task description with some hints. To beat each game, add your code to the code file and click the Check button at the bottom of the screen.
You’ll know you’ve completed a mission when you see a Congratulations! banner. Celebrate your progress, and then click Next to continue exploring.
If you get an Incorrect message, don’t worry: re-read the instructions and hints and give the task another try. Don’t give up — there’s much more to learn and explore!
To unlock some of the Stations, you’ll need to beat the previous one. Some others require an upgrade of your CheckiO account. Take a look at the adventure map at the CheckiO website and check your profile information to upgrade your account and keep your programming journey going.
