Facebook’s FbStart awarded USD 100k to Armenian-American SoloLearn, the largest code-teaching platform.  

The startup won in Global App of the Year category.

The event got 900 submissions from 87 countries.

CEO and Co-founder of SoloLearn Yeva Hyusyan remarked in an interview to TechCrunch that SoloLearn had turned into the “friendliest” community of peer learners with over half a million public codes, used as great peer-to-peer learning tool.

According to Yeva Hyusyan, users are generating a lot of the content themselves.
