How You'll Learn

Hands-on coding environments

You don’t get better at swimming by watching others. Coding is no different. Practice as you learn with live code environments inside your browser.

Faster than videos

Videos are holding you back. The average video tutorial is spoken at 150 words per minute, while you can read at 250. That‘s why our courses are text-based.

No set-up required

Start learning immediately instead of fiddling with SDKs and IDEs. It‘s all on the cloud.

Progress you can show

Built in assessments let you test your skills. Completion certificates let you show them off.

What our learners are saying

What our learners are saying

The courses which have "grokking" before them, are exceptionally well put together! These courses magically condense 3 years of CS in short bite-size courses and lectures (I have tried System Design, OODI, and Coding patterns). The Grokking courses are godsent, to be honest.

Totally worth it!

I'm a rising senior at UC Berkeley & just finished my 2nd internship at Google. This course provides the exact details that other coding platforms like LeetCode don't offer. I LOVE that the course is broken up into different "patterns" to develop a deep understanding of problems.
