The first few Harvard CS50 videos are now live

The first few Harvard CS50 videos are now live

I get really excited about these things many hours before people even get out of bed its late today 5:18. Thanks a bunch guys I like that we can see our progress and others can as well. When others see the actions they speak louder than words. I like this feature. In the future my vison for school is almost completely online. And the cost of school goes way down instead people pay for the skills that one aquires because they provide value where as traditional schools have been providing little to zero value for many many years. Free Code Camp is like school for people who love learning in life and not fake degrees. Its about doing for me what is the point to know if I cannot do it seems a waste of time I must learn to provide value with my time Thanks Freecode camp I plan on donating the second I make money in business with my education here. They have also lead me to many supplemental resources which are invaluable. I tell many people about this place its really great for poor people who need skills yet cannot pay for collage. I even shared you guys to the white house because people need skills this would be a perfect skill for non violent offenders in prison bro!!! All that time sitting on there asses think about it… I’m forwarding this message again to them this is a really good Idea.


@QuincyLarson You can get a certificate via HarvardX at edX, but you have to pay for it.

Not to take away from this post - it is fantastic that we continue to get the word out about CS50 - but that course (especially the 2018 lectures) is already on YouTube. CS50 has their own YouTube channel and I’ve already watched the CS50 course lectures (I’m on lecture 7) from that channel. I’m curious why they are being re-posted to your channel instead of just redirecting to CS50’s?

Again, I don’t want to take away from this information/post.


It may be that the reason it is being posted here now is he has “permission” from Harvard to endorse the course now from his own channel…which is huge if that’s the case!

Love this FCC Team! Thank you. I’ve moved away from another format I was using couple years back with my students. Now this is getting even better! TY!

Maybe I can get the State of TN to recognize this as a state endorsed certificate program now! Been at it for a couple of years…they continue with another certificate program that’s mediocre…so impressed by this today!

Thanks, Rob! And I’ve bumped your permissions to allow you to share links. (We started limiting new forum accounts from sharing links during their first 20 or 30 minutes of use as a spam countermeasure.)


This is correct. One of the main goals of our ad-free YouTube channel is to raise awareness of all the amazing resources out there. Many of these videos on Harvard’s channel only had a few thousand views, and we can help bring them to a larger audience.


Thanks a lot. its will incrasing our knowladge even if we are from CS Degree from other university.


How does one enroll in this course? I watched the first lecture today and I would love to take the class with others on a one-lecture-per-week basis and complete the associated “homework” along with some other folks. Is there a way to do this, either through freecodecamp or another group?! Thanks @QuincyLarson for continuing to share resources, encouragement and support!

For those of you who are interested in enrolment and certification for this course, you can sign up and complete the course via the website.

Good luck in your studies :blush:


Thanks, Quincy! I can see how it makes sense to have a “link probation”, good call.


Thanks, @QuincyLarson this is great!

I will be watching if after ending JS course :muscle:

Hi @andrewpaulyd, I singed up for this course by searching online learning Harvard (sorry, I apparently can’t post a link here since I’m new to FreeCodeCamp (tried, but couldn’t)), but you can easily find the course just by googling it.
I chose the free (no certificate path)…I started watching the first video today. Really like the guy. I will be going at at rather slow speed, since I’m doing also other things, but I think I should be able to do one lesson per week. I am interested in working together/supporting each other if we can figure out the way to do it.


I just bumped up your privileges so you can post the link now. (We get a lot of spam here, so pardon the spam countermeasure).

@QuincyLarson - Video 9 is posted as [Private Video]


Thanks for letting me know - we initially post these as private while we’re finishing them, then set them to public. How were you able to see video 9 when it was listed as private?
