Code.org is a non-profit foundation dedicated to growing computer programming education. Founded by two brothers, Hadi Partovi and Ali Partovi, their vision is that every student in every school has the opportunity to learn how to code. Code.org want computer science and computer programming to be part of the core curriculum in education, alongside other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses, such as biology, physics, chemistry and algebra.
Their goals include:
- Spreading the word that there is a worldwide shortage of computer programmers, and that it’s much easier to learn to program than you think.
- Building an authoritative database of all programming schools, whether they are online courses, brick+mortar schools or summer camps.
