Lessons from 5 years of teaching the world to code

Congrats to Quincy and everyone who has joined his mission with freeCodeCamp on an astounding rise:

More than 40,000 freeCodeCamp graduates are now working in tech at companies including Apple, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and Spotify.

Millions of people watch freeCodeCamp’s YouTube channel each month.

Millions of people read freecodecamp.org/news each month.

And people ask - and answer - thousands of tech-related questions each month on freecodecamp.org/forum.

freeCodeCamp.org is now one of the most-used technology sites on the entire web.

The future is bright. Click through to read what they accomplished in 2019 and how they’re up and running on a JAMstack.

freeCodeCamp – the first BILLION minutes

Quincy Larson:

People have now spent more than 1 billion minutes using freeCodeCamp.

That’s the equivalent of nearly 2,000 years.

To put it another way — if freeCodeCamp usage was a person, it would be old enough to have broken bread with Jesus himself.

Congrats to everyone who’s helped freeCodeCamp reach this milestone! Quite an accomplishment, and just the beginning for the tiny nonprofit that’s teaching the world to code.

Quincy shares a bunch of numbers in this post, including traffic comparisons between freecodecamp.org and funded startups.
