Learning to code should have a focus on practice, and it can be fun. Actually, anyone can learn programming — you don’t need to be a math genius, it’s enough to have an eagerness to learn. That’s what Dmytro Vezhnin, CodeGym’s co-founder and an experienced Senior Java Developer, thought of when he started to mentor people who dreamed to learn to code and drastically change their careers but couldn’t manage to create their learning path.
It was clear that there’s a whole world of those who want to master programming. So Dmitry offered Alex Yelenevych, who had the expertise in marketing, and a few pro developers to join the team and do the proper research. Soon they realized that still there weren’t any online tools to achieve the major goal: actually learn to code.
And they thought: what if they could develop a course with a brand-new approach so that anyone can get an affordable education in a convenient online format, with the self-paced education program, the right balance between theory and practice, and virtual mentoring.
So, the team commenced the development of this course.
CodeGym was founded on July 8, 2018, by the company HiTech Rush Inc. Today the company has two main offices: in Wilmington, US, and Kyiv, Ukraine.
