Summary
freeCodeCamp logofreeCodeCamp

freeCodeCamp is an excellent platform for learning how to code. We particularly like that it's a non-profit and all the courses and learning materials are provided completely for free, even though their course catalog is fairly limited. Their courses are in-depth and come with an intuitive interface that is helpful especially for beginners. This is why we recommend freeCodeCamp for beginners that want to learn how to code. More advanced learners might be better off choosing a platform with a broader course catalog and a learning experience that less caters to beginners.

Khan Academy logoKhan Academy

Khan Academy has a great catalog of completely free courses on Math, Science and other academic topics. The best part is that everything is available absolutely for free, and that their offering is pretty extensive, with course in a variety of different languages. They do however focus mainly on fundamental academic skills, rather than concrete career-relevant topics. Also, you shouldn't expect to get much learning support when learning on KhanAcademy, since this is something they can't deliver as a non-profit reliant on donations. Overall, KhanAcademy is a great place to learn about Math, Science and a lot more completely for free.
