Last week we celebrated a very special holiday for one of our Codecademists — Finnish Independence Day, or as we affectionately call it, “Findependence Day.”

Office all decorated!

Finland has given us many things in the land of technology, including the mobile communications company Nokia and the creator of operating system Linux, Linus Torvald — not to mention Santa Claus himself!

But most importantly, it gave us our lovely community manager, Linda! To thank the country for its kind gift we turned a wall into its giant flag and celebrated with specially-handcrafted cupcakes, courtesy of our interaction designer.

Nom nom nom

Happy Findependence Day, everyone!
