Free tool to help you improve your typing speed whilst learning to code.

I have a few students who love tools where you can practise their typing skills to keep improving their word per minute (WPM) score.

I really like the competitive racing feature in Type Racer where students can race against each other but students can get frustrated because whilst it’s fun to play, it’s hard to improve because it doesn’t show you where the next key is that you need to press.

Some of my students thought it’d be fun to have an online tool where you can learn new programming skills as well as learning how to type faster.

I’ve put this typing tool together so that students can learn new Python or VB skills from the quick reference guide whilst also competing to get the fastest WPM typing score.

You can choose a specific topic in python or VB or jump into a random snippet of code and type it out as fast as you can.

  • Variables and constants
  • String manipulation
  • Builtin functions
  • Input and output
