Welcome to CS101: A livestreamed introduction to Computer Science

I just wanted to drop this here in case you haven’t heard. It is an awesome introduction series for anyone new to computer science or looking to revisit programming foundations! Here’s the link and the info:

CS101: A livestreamed introduction to Computer Science

Join us for a semester-long intro to Computer Science! Over the course of the next 8 weeks, we’ll be hosting a live web series covering fundamental topics in Computer Science.

Our Curriculum Developers will introduce you to CS fundamentals, including how to think like a programmer. You’ll solve coding challenges and learn how to build basic programs in Python. We’ll be streaming live on Tuesdays at 1pm ET from September 1 through October 20.

The content of CS101 Live is similar to what you might see in the first few months of your first college semester in Computer Science. We’ll be working in Python. However, the content we’ll cover is fundamental to almost every programming language.

How to Watch

Every Tuesday at 1pm ET, we’ll be streaming our weekly session to YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, and Facebook. These sessions will run for approximately 1 hour.

You can find more information about each week’s session on the Codecademy Events Page. Register through the individual event pages to get an email reminder and mark it on your calendar so you don’t forget. We’ll also be updating this blog post with each week’s session after it happens so you can catch up on anything you miss.


Each week, we will be completing a module from our CS101 Course. This is a Pro course that has been specifically created for this livestream series. The stream will be free to everyone, but to code along with us, you’ll have to be a Codecademy Pro or Pro Student member. Find out more about the discounted Codecademy Pro Student membership in our Student Center.

We also recommend looking through the module ahead of time so you can come to the stream prepared to ask questions.

Here’s what we’ll be covering each week. Click the “Register” links to sign up.
