Who we are

OpenClassrooms wants to make education accessible by prioritizing a community-based, engaging learning experience.

We offer open courses so that you can learn with us and take control of your future. We help you get started on this path, but it doesn't end there! Our goal is to help you throughout your whole life and entire professional journey.

We, Mathieu Nebra and Pierre Dubuc, founders of OpenClassrooms, as well as our team of 35 people, are with you every day! Intrigued and driven by education and technology, we were only 13 and 11 years old when we started this project: offer technical courses online for those who wanted to code. A passionate community quickly joined us and participates in our site development by also offering courses.

In 2012, we paved the path towards certifying courses, and within just a few years we've become the leading platform for code learning, tech knowledge, and digital culture. As the first e-learning site in Europe with nearly 3 million monthly users and more than 1,000 online courses, we've become a French EdTech champion and want to offer our expertise to others.
