Learn.co, the proprietary learning platform that powers Flatiron’s free coding bootcamp, is the world’s most sophisticated product for learning code. Students on Learn.co interact with a worldwide community of students and instructors and harness real developer tools to truly learn by doing.
Learning is most effective when it’s social. Learn.co makes online learning a more dynamic, human experience with tools to connect, code, and collaborate with fellow students and instructors in real-time – including video study groups, peer-pairing, and the ability to “friend” others in the program.
You can’t learn real skills without real tools. Learn.co utilizes the same tools and workflows that professional developers employ on the job, including a real development environment, a Git-based workflow, and the ubiquitous practice of Test-Driven Development.
We ensure that students always get the most relevant technical skills by embracing an open-source curriculum – a living course of study featuring thousands of updates a year to reflect industry trends and student feedback.
