Hello, World! Codecademy has helped over 45 million people from around the world upgrade their careers with engaging, accessible, & flexible education on programming & data skills.

Codecademy was started in 2011 by two college students in a dorm room at Columbia that were frustrated by the huge gap between education & employment.
