Code.org is a non-profit foundation dedicated to growing computer programming education.
Code.org plans to do the following: 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.
Our vision is that computer science and computer programming are included in the core curriculum in U.S. education, alongside other STEM (science technology engineering math) courses, such as biology, physics, chemistry and math.
Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) is an annual program.
