You’re invited to join the Udacity community as we gather for our 2nd Annual Global Meetup Day on Saturday July 20th at 2pm PDT.
The theme of the day will be to bring Udacians together on a single day worldwide to celebrate our community and our mission to educate and empower people to advance their careers in technology
Udacity’s Global Meetup Day is an annual event that is held in over 400 cities across the world. This is a very effective mechanism that has led to the rise of highly skilled and motivated individual communities around the world. This year’s event will bring Udacians (udacity users) together on a single day worldwide to celebrate our community. The mission, to educate and empower people to advance their careers in technology and beyond
Udacity was born out of a Stanford University experiment in which Sebastian Thrun and Peter Norvig offered their “Introduction to Artificial Intelligence” course online to anyone, for free. Over 160,000 students in more than 190 countries enrolled and not much later, Udacity was born.
Udacity is an organization that specializes in bringing accessible, affordable, engaging, and highly effective higher education to the world. Udacity believes that higher education is broken. With increasingly higher costs for both students and our society at large, the current model must change!!
