Code.org is a non-profit foundation dedicated to expanding the educational reach of computer programming. Students can sign up to learn and teachers can sign up to bring coding to their own schools. It’s no secret that the past decade of technological advancement owes much of its success to the brilliant coding of some of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs. Code.org knows the drill and that’s why they hired a stellar cast of programming wizards like Mark Zuckerberg, tycoons like Bill Gates and even all-star athletes like Chris Bosh to share their coding stories.
