It provides an online platform where users can find all the listings of a large number of websites, platforms and resources which deliver computer programming tutorials and training.

Additionally, the platform features a “Find a Local School” function that allows the user to search for schools and colleges that offer computer programming training. Also, if the teachers wish to motivate their students to develop interest in programming, they can use code.org video clips that differ in play length which they can employ according to the need at hand, to deliver motivational messages on “why everyone should learn coding and how easy it is to code” The video clips feature many well known personalities like Mr Bill Clinton (Former POTUS), Mr. Bill Gates (Founder - Microsoft), Mr Mark Zuckerberg (Founder - Facebook), Will.i.am (Singer) among others.

People can seek help for coding implementation in their school as well as contribute to the organisation.

Our Review:- Code.org is a foundation that profoundly impresses us as they have done a great job to create videos, powerful enough to convince and motivate people to step forward and take up computer programming. Additionally, they have linked up with a lot of prominent people, communities and companies to create and provide a list for the users to select from, and learn almost anything that they wish to in the computer programming domain. The foundation also extends a helping hand to people who wish to integrate computer programming curriculum into their regular school/college programs but who may be facing some kind of difficulty.

The only limitation that we currently found with the foundation is that they are geographically limited to the US for operations, as they offer help and volunteering options to US locals only. We hope to see it grow globally.
