We’re a community that helps you learn to code, then get experience by contributing to open source projects used by nonprofits.
You'll learn to code by completing coding challenges and building projects. You'll also earn verified certificates along the way. We also encourage you to join a study group in your city so you can code in-person with other people.
Yes. Thousands of people have gotten software developer jobs after joining our community.
Yes. Every aspect of freeCodeCamp is 100% free.
If you add up all the people who use our learning platform, read our Medium publication, watch our YouTube channel, and post on our forum, every month we're helping millions of people learn about coding and technology.
Through Open Source for Good.
Yes, we are a donor-supported nonprofit.
Each certificate takes around 200 hours of dedicated learning. Some people may take longer. These certificates are completely self-paced, so take as long as you need.
freeCodeCamp is a community above all else. Even after you've finished your certificates and gotten a developer job, you can give back by helping others and contributing to open source projects.
No. A lot of coding bootcamps use freeCodeCamp as part of their curriculum, though.
No. Please don’t drop out of college just to pursue freeCodeCamp. You can pursue both concurrently. Even though you don’t need a 4-year degree to work as a software developer, it still helps a lot.
Yes. Many high school, college, and adult ed programs incorporate freeCodeCamp into their coursework. We're open source, so no license or special permission from us is necessary. We're even building special tools for teachers.
We’ve put a lot of thought into how we introduce concepts. But you’re free to jump around.
As long as your code is publicly viewable, and you have a live demo, you can use whatever you want.
As soon as they're 100% tested and ready. In addition to millions of adult learners, many schools and teachers also rely on freeCodeCamp. We owe it to everyone to only release this once it's stable.
Quincy started our open source community in 2014. He is now just one of many active contributors.
We can't afford to hire anyone yet, but we can serve as a springboard for your next job. Our contributors have landed jobs at companies like GitHub, Spotify, and MongoDB.
