Join Us for Learn From Home Day

Let’s learn from home together! Join us tomorrow, April 10th, for Learn from Home Day, a global online event to promote togetherness and self-betterment through learning online. We’ll be going live over Zoom starting at 10am EDT, offering a lineup of live talks and interactive sessions.

What you’ll learn

Throughout the day, you’ll be able to join a variety of breakout sessions with the Codecademy team. We’ll work on projects, answer your questions, run group discussions, and help you understand best practices for learning from home.

The day will start with a welcome from Codecademy CEO and co-founder Zach Sims. Then, we’ll have two tracks of breakout sessions — a “Building Websites” track and a “Languages and Usage” track.
