Backpacks are to developers what shells are to turtles - essential parts of their bodies.

Backpacks distribute the weight of books, laptops - and pilfered snacks - across your entire upper body. They free your hands for hugs and high-fives.

Whether you're walking between classes or lining up for a hackathon, a good backpack will make your life a lot easier.

That's why I'm thrilled to announce our new Limited Edition 2019 freeCodeCamp Backpack.

It boasts a sleek brushed-steel looking cotton exterior.

It offers tons of ergonomic padding for your back, and easy-tug zipper lines for your hands.

And it has compartments for all of your belongings. You can squirrel-away your entire life into this thing.

It even has a USB port for charging your devices while they're in your bag, and a detachable key fob.

Here's my 90-second hands-on demo of its key features:

We evaluated dozens of suppliers to find the perfect backpack - a high-end build that can stand up to the rigors of hackathons and subway commutes alike.

Each backpack features the freeCodeCamp bonfire function call logo in thick indigo embroidery.

For just US $40 + $20 shipping worldwide* you get a Limited Edition 2019 freeCodeCamp Backpack.

(* shipping not available to the International Space Station or other orbital craft.)

And if you really want to support our nonprofit - like super-duper support us - we will send you a Limited Edition 2019 Top Supporter backpack if you make an additional one-time donation of US $200.

(We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, so your donation may be fully tax-deductible in your country. If you aren't sure, ask your accountant.)

This is the same backpack, but with the additional words "2019 Top Supporter" embroidered onto it, recognizing your support of our nonprofit.

That may be a lot of money for you. So I'll give you a moment to listen to this awesome Dora the Explorer Backpack Song while you think about it.

So I know what you're thinking: "All right, enough. Where can I get my freeCodeCamp backpack already?"

ļøšŸ“ļø Just fill out this form and we'll ship it to you. šŸ“ļøļø

If you're going to carry the world on your shoulders, do it in style.

Peace. Love. Backpacks.
