Code School: A Pluralsight Company

2015 Year in Review

It’s been another great year here at Code School.

We took our students on many journeys in 2015, including a trip to a magical land of candy and unicorns in our web animations course, the farthest corners of space in Blasting Off With Bootstrap, and the stage of a punk rock show in ES2015: The Shape of JavaScript to Come. But the best journey of all is any you take with your friends — and for us, that’s you! [Cue the studio audience: “Awwww!”]

Now let’s take a look back at 2015 while we start gearing up for another code-tastic year.

Culture

Let’s be real — working at Code School is awesome. We get to work on fun courses that help people reach their goals, we have weekly yoga sessions (followed by weekly whiskey-and/or-wine sessions), and this year we even got bean bag chairs! What’s better than working from a nice, comfy bean bag chair? Not much, people. Not much.

Here’s a bit of what happened behind the scenes in 2015.
