Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There are billions of people who would benefit from getting better at using technology - especially from learning to code. But most of these people are busy and have limited resources. They have jobs, kids, aging family members, and other obligations. They have neither the time nor the money to learn through a traditional avenue, like a bachelor's degree in computer science. Instead, they need a learning resource that is as inexpensive as possible and as convenient as possible.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organization has set out to help as many people learn to code as possible. This means increasing access to technology education. And to maximize access, we've built a curriculum that is completely free, self-paced, and can be done completely in a browser. By completing the curriculum, learners are also able to get free verified certifications to add to their resumes, CVs, and LinkedIn profiles.

The first part of our strategy is to provide learning resources. We've built a comprehensive 1,800-hour coding curriculum that is entirely interactive and runs right in your browser. We also have a YouTube channel with more than 1,000 coding tutorial videos. And we have a Medium publication with thousands of articles and tutorials related to technology and coding.

The second part of our strategy is to provide a learning community. We maintain a forum where learners can get help if they have questions or get stuck. We also have thousands of in-person study groups around the world where learners can meet up and code together.

We have a staff of 5 who are focused on both creating learning resources and on developing our learning platform itself.

We also have thousands of volunteer contributors who help expand our learning resources through open source code and content contributions. Many of these volunteers also help learners through our forum and our in-person study groups.

Lastly, we have thousands of supporters who donate to our organization each month, which helps cover our servers and administrative costs.

Some milestones as of November 2018:

- Millions of people have registered for freeCodeCamp's learning platform
- Millions of people are using freeCodeCamp.org each month
- According to our LinkedIn alumni group, thousands of our alumni are getting jobs as developers every year as a result of using our learning platform.
- We have 528,000 subscribers on YouTube and are among the fastest-growing education channels on YouTube
- We have the largest publication on Medium.com, with more than 505,000 followers reading our articles there
- Our opens source codebase on GitHub has more than 2,100 contributors
- We have more than 3,000 supporters who donate to freeCodeCamp each month
