Hello, World! Codecademy has helped tens of millions of learners upgrade their careers, build meaningful projects & gain confidence in their skills with engaging, accessible, & flexible education on programming & data skills. We provide hands-on interactive lessons ranging from Python to R to JavaScript & everything in between. Our learners have gone on to start companies, new jobs, & new lives thanks to what theyve learned with Codecademy, & were thrilled to take that impact to the next level.

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. Almost a decade later, we are a growing, diverse team of 100+ headquartered in SoHo, NYC. Weve raised over $40m in venture capital funding from top investors including Union Square Ventures, Kleiner Perkins, Naspers, Y Combinator, & more.
