When Chris Castiglione started One Month in 2013, he was teaching coding on the side. But insane, unexpected, and fervent interest in that initial course proved there was something bigger afoot. People wanted to learn new skills online, and they really wanted a resource that could guide them through that first 30 days of learning, along with recommendations on where to go next.
Six years later, and One Month has evolved numerous times across a range of topics, but its central mission has circled back to that first-ever course: Give learners a foundation and launchpad to begin a longer road to mastery. Along the way, Chris has (somehow!) found the time to launch the successful On Books podcast, where he gets up close and intellectual with the world’s most popular authors.
