Hey Hack Clubbers 👋🏼 I'm excited to announce that in 2 weeks, @Damicake and I are hosting an AMA with Sal Khan!
During the AMA you'll be asking him questions, and we'll learning more about who he is and what he does!
Sal Khan founded Khan Academy as a non-profit in 2008, and it now has over ✨50,000 challenges, 3,000 articles, and 10,000 videos ✨ — many of them made by Sal Khan himself. The content covers everything from basic math and history to SAT prep, reaching millions of students. It's helped both me and @Damicake a ton. Personally, I first learned to code using Khan Academy's computer science courses in elementary school, and I've learned so much about all sorts of subjects from Sal's videos.
