This week the teacher who founded freeCodeCamp, Quincy Larson, went on a rare public interview with popular open source podcast The Changelog.
During the one-hour interview, open source enthusiasts Adam Stacoviak and Jerod Santo reflected on freeCodeCamp's accomplishments over the past 7 years.
They asked Quincy questions about a wide variety of topics, including:
- The upcoming Data Science curriculum expansion
- freeCodeCamp's 500-year-old pedagogical roots
- and freeCodeCamp's quest to turn continuing adult education into a video game
Adam used the expression "Nonprofit Unicorn", which comes from an essay by serial entrepreneur Darrell Silver, who is donating $150,000 to freeCodeCamp to help freeCodeCamp build a variety of new Data Science certifications.
