One Month: Innovation In Online Education


Programming languages have become an essential addition to the way we do business. Some of us use query languages to manage databases. Others use HTML for web development. Still more use an array of languages such as Pyth0n, C++ or JavaScript to create games, apps, and develop intensive computer programs. Whatever the case may be, having a rudimentary grasp on code is becoming more important. So, how do you learn to code if looking at manuals and crawling through forums just doesn’t work out for you?

One Month has come forward with a solution. Like CodeCademy, One Month offers a person the ability to learn a programming language online. Whereas CodeCademy allows for collaboration and self exploration, One Month will provide you with a tailored routine to learn this language in as little as 30 days. The courses are specific, detailed and provided through a video learning platform. The company is also active in other fields, offering courses in growth hacking, and content marketing, among other topics.

The idea was launched by founders, Mattan Griffel and Chris Castiglione, out of startup hotspot New York City in May of 2013. Since then, the educational startup has already developed dozens of courses ranging from iOS to Rails and even a course on Programming for Non-Programmers. The premise? “What if you could learn anything in one month”? Hence the name. So far, most of the courses require an attendee to be put on a waiting list, and each course offers more than just the rudimentary content provided. Each course is designed with a busy user in mind and can be completed in as little as 15 minutes a day.


There is no question such a platform will have room for success in today’s market. With automation and programming becoming more and more integral into every facet of society, literally everyone is going to need to know a thing or two about the processes therein. One Month, being able to offer a solution, through an intuitive and guided learning platform, to those who might struggle with or want to learn but do not have the time to do so, provides a great opportunity.

Thus far, the startup has earned over $784,000 in funding from almost a dozen investors. If the current popularity of their courses is any indicator of future success, the future is certainly bright for One Month. This venture stands to bring many who might have been afraid or were lost in the technical jargon of learning manuals a chance to step into the world of modern business.
