|Stories from campers who've become professional software developers|
We’re an open source community that helps you learn to code.
You can work through our self-paced coding challenges, build projects, and earn certificates. We also connect you with people in your city so you can code together.
Yes. Thousands of people have gotten software developer jobs after joining our open source community.
No. A lot of coding bootcamps use freeCodeCamp as part of their curriculum, though.
Yes. Our curriculum, nonprofit projects, and verified certificates are all free.
Once you finish the first 1,200 hours of challenges, you’ll get to build a series of solutions for nonprofits. You’ll work in pairs, under the supervision of a volunteer project manager and a stakeholder from the nonprofit.
Our community has donated more than a million dollars worth of pro-bono coding for nonprofits so far.
Yes. You can pledge a monthly donation to a nonprofit of your choosing while you learn.
It takes about 2,080 hours to complete our Full Stack Developer certificate. This translates into one year of full-time coding. We’re completely self-paced though, so take as long as you need.
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.
We're making steady progress on these and will release them as soon as they're ready. In the meantime, other people have completed our React/Sass and D3 projects by referencing their official documentation.
Quincy started our open source community in 2014. He is now just one of many active contributors.
Quincy set up a company in California called freeCodeCamp, Inc. to support the freeCodeCamp community. It pays for servers and other expenses. It also sponsors Quincy, Berkeley, and Michael, who oversee infrastructure and nonprofit projects.
We can't afford to hire anyone, but we can serve as a springboard for your next job. Our contributors have landed jobs at companies like GitHub and Spotify.
We don’t show ads.
We're self-funded and don't want outside investment.
We don’t accept donations. Instead, you should support us through our shop.
