Learn programming by creating working applications with JetBrains Academy, a project-based learning platform.
Go beyond lectures — learn by developing. Choose a project and work through a curriculum that contains all the concepts necessary to build it. Challenge yourself to integrate everything that you’ve learned into your applications.
Explore new topics and projects that become available to you as you improve. Navigate the Knowledge Map, which displays your progress, the full scope of available topics, and the connections between them.
Master professional tools and become an accomplished developer. Enjoy the platform’s full integration with JetBrains IDEs while working on your projects.
If you like learning the theory lessons on Stepik but prefer to do the coding exercises in the IDE – you don't need to worry about losing your course progress. All your progress is synchronized between the platforms.
You can import any course from Stepik that has programming tasks, which you can solve right inside the IDE. You can easily switch back-and-forth with Stepik any time you want.

Feel more at home with your IDE and help yourself stay focused and avoid distraction, with customizable color and keyboard shortcut schemes, and all the look-and-feel settings you need for productive development.
Take advantage of language-specific syntax & error highlighting to help you avoid code mistakes. Learn how to style your code right with the code formatting, and don't ever get stuck thanks to code completion and quick documentation.
Run your code to be sure everything goes right. Use the powerful debugger with a graphical UI to find out what went wrong—set breakpoints, run your code step by step and have all the information available to you at your fingertips.
