Introducing Learner Day 2020

Updated on March 9, 2020 — We have decided to temporarily postpone Learner Day 2020 to a TBD date. This is due to the implementation of a company-wide work-from-home policy as a response to the current COVID-19 situation.

We want to make sure Learner Day 2020 is a complete success, and that means our whole company working together in person to celebrate our learners. And while this postponement isn’t ideal, we take the health and safety of our employees and our community seriously.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. We will release another Learner Day update as soon as we have more information to share, so stay tuned.

At Codecademy, our learners are at the heart of all that we do. That’s why every year, we dedicate a day to set aside our regular work and focus entirely on celebrating our learners. We call it “Learner Day,” and it’s happening on Thursday, March 12th!

This year for Learner Day, we’ll be answering your questions on our forum, sending swag and handwritten notes to some of our fans, coding with our learners, and hosting a series of live streams.

On Thursday March 12th, we’ll be streaming live on YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook from 12:30PM – 5:30PM EST. We have a variety of panels, tutorials, and Q&A sessions planned, and the team is excited to interact directly with you!

Check out the schedule below:
