Quincy Larson

Oklahoma, United States

If you’ve ever searched the words “learn” and “code”, then you’ve undoubtedly come across freeCodeCamp.org. Founded in 2014 after Quincy’s own learn to code journey, this grassroots not-for-profit has become one of the most supportive and inclusive communities both online and off. These values form the basis of FCC, with real world non-profits as the final project, and the whole platform being open sourced. We’re super excited to host Quincy for his first time in Australia as the Levels Conf 2018 keynote speaker!
