Codecademy was created out of the frustrations Zach and Ryan felt with learning how to program. Tired with less effective text and video resources, they teamed up to create Codecademy, a better, more interactive way to learn programming by actually coding. We're growing quickly and this is just the beginning. Join us as we make it easy for everyone to love learning how to code.
We're all really passionate about our mission to share programming with the world. We want to give people a chance to complement their traditional educational experience with a way to learn skills that are immediately relevant in the labor market. We love what we do and have the privilege of working with some of the smartest and funniest people you'd hope to meet.
