I created CodeAvengers and yes it is targeted at the absolute beginner. I tried to teach my siblings programming using sites like CodeCademy and other great free resources but none of them worked fantastically for beginners. So I had a go at creating my own site in my spare time.
Have only had 100k visits to the site so far but the feedback has been fantastic. CodeCademy is great for people who have already done a bit of programming, but many of my users have commented that my courses are much better for the total beginners.
Udacity and Coursera are fantastic too, different style of course, and in my opinion not so engaging for the high school age kids and 1st year college students that my site is targetting.
