It teaches you programming (Java I think this is?) and lets you compile code right from the website. I just started the first lesson and I thought I would share.

Two equals is comparison of value (for instance, comparing the boolean value "FALSE" with the numerical value "0" would return true).
Three equals is comparison of value and variable type (same example as above would return false).
