Join "Learn From Home Day” on Wednesday, May 13

In partnership with brands like Duolingo, Casper, Twitch and more, offers a full day of interactive sessions and online activities 




With school closures and classes moving online across the nation, Codecademy is partnering with Y Combinator, Duolingo, Twitch and dozens of other organizations to host “Learn From Home Day” on Wednesday, May 13, from 10:45 - 5:45 ET.

Learn From Home Day will be a free global online event for people interested in learning and self-improvement. The event will be chock full of interactive classes and sessions ranging from guided meditation and drawing for inner calmness, to mixing a song and streaming best practices, to home cooking with Food52.


Zach Sims, CEO and Co-Founder of Codecademy, says: “This moment in time with the global pandemic is bigger than any one of us — and that’s why we need to come together. By collaborating with other brands to host the inaugural ‘Learn From Home Day,’ we want to help people feel a greater sense of purpose, inspire them to learn more, and feel a little less alone. The takeaway will be that you can learn a new skill from anywhere, at any time, and gain a greater feeling of accomplishment, growth, and optimism as a result.”

Registration for the event will go live on Monday, May 11 at codecademy.com/events/learn-from-home-day.
