Community Spotlight (September 2023)

:wave: Hi learners.

Welcome to the first edition of the Community Spotlight, your number one source for community news, Codecademy updates, and helpful resources.

News and Resources:

Unsure if you’re job-ready yet? Check out the new AI Job Checker! Simply click on the link, input the requested information, and our helpful bot will determine whether you’re ready to dive into job applications and interviews.

Speaking of AI, the new Codecademy ChatGPT plugin lets you ask the chatbot for customized recommendations for coding courses and paths to take. Give it a try!


You may have seen some community superheroes, doing their best to answer questions, provide guidance, and cheer you on during your learning journey. If so, you’ve probably met a member of the Code Crew!

So what does it mean to be on the Code Crew? Here’s a little more explanation.

On that note, we’d like to give a massive shoutout to all our helpful Code Crew members! Thank you for all you do to make our community spaces a friendly place to learn to code.

Upcoming Events:

Just a sneak peek before we publish all the events next week, but for September we’ll bring some really incredible guests from places like Meta, GitHub and OpenAI. If you don’t want to miss them, make sure to join our Official Community Events chapter to be notified when they’re published!
