What is Code School?
Code School is an online learning destination for existing and aspiring developers that teaches through entertaining content. Each course is built around a creative theme and storyline so that it feels like you’re playing a game, not sitting in a classroom. We also have shorter Screencasts and Projects where you can build applications on your computer or on GitHub and let us check your work.
You can learn more about us on our About page.
How long does Free Weekend last?
Free Weekend starts on Friday, November 17, at 10 a.m. and ends on Sunday, November 19, at 11:59 p.m. in Eastern Standard Time (UTC-5). It's a 61 hours long weekend so you should have enough time to learn about your favorite technologies, but remember to take a nap once in a while.
