Code.org is a non-profit dedicated to growing computer programming education. Our 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.
Our vision is that every student in every school has the opportunity to learn how to code. We believe computer science and computer programming should be part of the core curriculum in education, alongside other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses, such as biology, physics, chemistry and algebra.

Code.org is a public 501c3, with support from the general public. The primary initial donors are founders Ali Partovi and Hadi Partovi, but we've been overwhelmed by small and large acts of generosity from individuals and companies alike who all agree with our vision. We would like to extend a special thanks to the entire cast of our short film, and also to Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Twitter for their generous help in promoting the film, each in their own very unique way.
