Has a piece of code ever puzzled you? You read the code but the meaning is just not popping into your head.
Welcome to the world of coding! Every coder knows this feeling. It is a natural consequence of your decision to learn to code.
How to start learning to code?
Finxter teaches you rapid code understanding. To make learning fun, we have created the three step Finxter loop.
Here’s the deal: at least once a day, you …
- … solve a code puzzle in your current skill level,
- … read the explanations to improve your skills,
- … enjoy the endorphines released by your body when solving the puzzle.
Repeat this small 5-minute habbit daily and you will become a great coder.

Coding is like learning a new language. You improve by listening to and expressing yourself in the new language. A core language skill is to understand words quickly. Likewise, a core programming skill is to understand code quickly.
This page teaches you rapid code understanding. It teaches you to see beyond the code. When we are done with you, the meaning of a code snippet will unfold like words from your mother’s tongue. At this point, consider yourself a code master.
Becoming a code master is what we at Finxter want for you. Furthermore, we want you to achieve this with minimal effort only by committing to a simple process. We know: If you are like most of our users, you can not commit fulltime to learning to code.
Fortunately, this is not needed. A quiet habit is much better than a loud event. Learn 5 minutes every day and not a single whole weekend. True learning is a process, not an event.
To help you reach your goal on the side, we have created the Finxter loop, a daily 5-minute habit. Solve a puzzle a day and enjoy the release of endorphins into your brain when solving it. Commit to this single habit and your Python skills will expand rapidly.
