Our mission is... provide easy access to programming education and to help people increase their chances of getting their first IT job.

Our story

The idea behind an education startup was born in 2012 as an answer to the lack of IT specialists on the market. We have noticed that IT companies have hard time finding skilled programmers. At the same time, there are people with university degrees who struggle with finding a job.

1000000 more jobs than students by 2020

In the mid-2014 we started to build the first version of our online-learning platform. In early 2015 we released the beta version called Codemy. From the very beginning we have focused on interactivity and approachability, so that people with no prior programming experience can easily work with the platform.

Codemy was critically acclaimed, so in late 2015 we founded the Codemy SA company. Since then, our online-learning platform has been known as Kodilla.

Our principles

Kodilla is based on the following principles:

  • Education for all - Kodilla has been designed for people with no prior coding experience. Our aim is to make the language and the pace of the courses as approachable as possible. However, we also have options for the students who are not absolute beginners.
  • Focus on practice - instead of long video lectures, our students receive numerous interactive assignments and practical tasks. We strongly believe that this is the most efficient way to learn online.
  • 1-on-1 mentoring - nothing compares to a live code review with an expert on the other side of the screen. Our Mentors help students during the course, get them unstuck and show them the best coding practices.
  • Focus on goals - we set learning goals for the students and demonstrate them the skills which they are about to master. This way, they have a clear roadmap to becoming a programmer and they are kept focused and motivated.
