Happy Thanksgiving to our wonderful community of students! Each and every one of you inspires us every day with your dedication and all that you accomplish. As our CEO and co-founder Ryan Carson said last Thanksgiving “Thank you for putting in the hard work to learn to code and change your life. We created the school, but you did the hard work of learning. We love what we do and come to work every day for people like you.”

In fact, this year, we’re so grateful for all of you that we wanted to say a special “thank you” the best way we know how, with code!

So why not set yourself a mini coding challenge this Thanksgiving? Can you recognize and name the 12 programming languages we used to say thank you in the video below? Once you’ve noted down your list, scroll down for the answers.
