The Odin Project is one of those "What I wish I had when I was learning" resources. Not everyone has access to a computer science education or the funds to attend an intensive coding school and neither of those is right for everyone anyway. This project is designed to fill in the gap for people who are trying to hack it on their own but still want a high quality education.
This curriculum itself is free and we tried to link to resources that are themselves free so anyone in the world can use them.
The Odin Project curriculum is full of projects that will help you build a strong portfolio of work on GitHub to fill out your resume.
We're committed to connecting students together so they can stay motivated and learn faster.
Our curriculum and website are available on GitHub and we encourage students to actually contribute to the project itself!
The Odin Project provides a free open source coding curriculum that can be taken entirely online. Since its inception, it has helped many students get hired as developers and has assisted countless others in learning enough programming to work on their own personal projects.
Founded in 2013 by Erik Trautman, The Odin Project is now sponsored by Thinkful, a new type of technology school that provides 1-on-1 learning through its network of industry experts, hiring partners, and online platform to deliver a structured and flexible education.
The Odin Project is maintained and continually improved by a team of volunteers, many of whom learned to code with us. Many find success from Odin Project's curriculum because of its hands-on approach with learning and emphasis on building projects. The curriculum is meticulously curated to ensure the content is up-to-date.
This website and the curriculum it hosts are completely open source. That means anyone can work on new features or fix existing bugs on the website. This also extends to the curriculum itself, anyone can work on new lessons, add new resources and improve existing lessons.
The Odin project would not be possible without the hard work of contributors from all across the world. If you're interested in helping us make Odin better please find out how to contribute.
