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.
Yes. Every aspect of our program - our curriculum, nonprofit projects, and verified certificates - is 100% free.
Once you finish the first 1,200 hours of challenges, you can start contributing to open source projects used by dozens of nonprofits.
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 2,000 hours to complete our Full Stack Developer certificate. This translates into about one year of full-time coding. We’re completely self-paced though, so take as long as you need.
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 hundreds of thousands 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.
