Gamification - Code Academy

Gamification is the infusion of game mechanics, game design techniques, and/or game style into anything.

Code Academy, the teach yourself to code site I found last night, is an excellent example of gamification.  Check out this screen grab . . .

Note that in my first (long) night with Code Academy, I am "becoming a coding ninja,"  I have 34 points, and three achievements.  I wonder if I get to "level up?"

The site is fun as an example of gamification, and begins as a nice "teach yourself how to . . . " site.  Give it a try.
