42 US is a tuition-free coding school that has just opened its doors this year in Fremont, California. Our founding branch is located in Paris, France and has been operating with great success since 2013. 42’s mission is to undercover the talents of this generation in the field of programming, and to do so on a broad scale. To achieve this, 42 is giving all young people an opportunity - students are selected neither on the basis of financial ability nor educational degree, but solely on their talent and motivation.
