If you want to learn to code, you can learn for free if you work on projects for non-profits. The organization Free Code Camp teaches novice coders and enables people to become software engineers.

The open-source educational community not only enables busy and motivated professionals to connect with each other, but they can also learn and work together on self-paced browser-based challenges. These challenges are actually projects that need to be completed for non-profit organizations.

This gives users experience with tools like HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, Databases, DevTools, Node.js, Angular.js and Agile. People can learn to code, build up their portfolio and help give back to charitable groups. Members also gain real qualifications and 800 hours of real world experience after finishing four projects.
