Why I’m donating $150k to freeCodeCamp to help fund their advanced math & machine learning curriculum

freeCodeCamp is a non-profit unicorn: It delivered 1.3 billion minutes of free coding education last year, grows 60% every year, and is sustainably run by just 12 full time staff and hundreds of volunteers. That’s a smaller team than when Facebook acquired Instagram for $1b.

freeCodeCamp has 60% growth every year since 2015.
