Have you ever wanted to learn to code? There’s no time like the present -- especially when it’s free!

Orlando, Fla.-based online education platform Code School is making all of its coding courses free this weekend in honor of hitting 2 million learners using its platform.

The free weekend starts Friday at 5 p.m. ET and goes through 11:59 p.m. ET Sunday.

In those 55 hours, online courses teaching topics such as Javascript, HTML/CSS, Ruby on Rails and iOS development will all be made free.

Typically, it costs $29 to have monthlong access to the materials for a course. A single course usually includes between three and four hours of material.
