Packages are getting rebuilt for education

December 8th, 2018 by Anthony R.

We have been posting about our move to a new package system and that in the first quarter of 2019 the new system will be fully live with the new packages store. This is part of our move to help secure NodeHost in the development ecosystem for future users, but it also will bring great features for education.

The new packages store will allow users to create and post educational packages (courses) with real code that users will need to edit to fix and learn how to modify. We will also be making some courses and while some will be payed others will be free. But we are giving publishers the option to make packages they create free for education and will have a featured section of packages that are free to students and teachers.
