CodeHS gives me all of the resources I need in order to teach AP Computer Science A. The lessons and exercises are great for a flipped classroom. The ability to create quizzes and tests on the site is useful, and the ability to have students write their own code in the Sandbox for assignments that I give them during class makes it a one-stop place for Java!
