The Future of Learning

Today, we're excited to announce our next chapter at Twitter: we're thrilled to be joining their engineering organization to build Twitter University. We began teaching classes at Twitter several months ago and have been continually impressed by the engineering leadership, the company's commitment to learning, and the cultural fit between our two companies.

Our passion has always been to help people get better at what they do by taking a holistic approach to learning. Over the past decade at Marakana, we've developed courses on Android, Java, HTML5, Scala, Python, Hadoop, jQuery and others, often being the first to provide training on these cutting edge technologies.

We have delivered classes to more than 100,000 professional software engineers. Additionally, more than five million people have learned from our free online videos - totaling more than 350,000 hours. We're grateful to our customers, partners, employees, and broader community that helped make this all happen.

We're off to build Twitter University. Follow our progress at @university.
