What if creating software was so easy even kids could do it?

Writing, photography and video have been democratized by the internet. But what about software itself? Programming is a potent form of creative expression, imagine if anyone could do it.

This is our mission. Join us.

Jocelyn used to be a teacher at Dalton, and has been working with constructivist, project-based learning since her undergraduate days. She wished she had studied engineering and is making this product to compensate. She grew up in Honolulu and likes surfing, swimming, snorkeling, diving; pretty much anything that involves oceanic immersion. She used to front a rock band and nothing can get between her and Chop’t.
While an engineer at Pivotal Labs in New York City, Samantha taught multiple programming classes to beginners. She taught herself programming after graduating from Columbia University with a degree in Applied Mathematics. She hails from the proud city of Detroit and can probably beat you barefoot in a marathon.
