Join Lemonerdy U and Learn Scratch! CSS! HTML! JavaScript! Python! to Code! |

At Lemonerdy University, we focus on peer to peer experiences. Studies have shown that people learn more quickly and retain more when they are taught by their peers. As we enter our beta phase, we invite you to try one of our free courses. Welcome to Lemonerdy U! 

What We Teach

We have courses designed to help you learn to code step by step, as well as special discussions on careers in technology to keep you thinking ahead.


Scratch is a free, block-based programming language and community where you can create your own interactive stories, games, and animations.

I learned to love coding when I started learning Scratch. Learn to make games, slideshows, and more!


The HyperText Markup Language or HTML is the standard markup language for documents designed to be displayed in a web browser. 

HTML is important because it gives websites their fonts, colors, and more! You can use HTML to do some very cool things.

CSS, Python, JavaScript, and more!

If you dream it, you can code it! There's so much to learn. Let's dream (and code) together...

Every time I learn a new programming language, my world gets even bigger! I  can create so many new things.

Bonus Youtube Lessons

I'll teach you what I've learned in the last 4 years as a Youtuber in fun, informative mini-courses.

I have really enjoyed my YouTube channel and I'm even a YouTube partner now! I'd love to show you how I did it.
