We started Kodable because we wanted to help prepare kids for a bright future by helping them learn a valuable skill. We are amazed at the positive impact Kodable has had on programming education in such a short time.

Since we released Kodable in the App Store last November, kids in over 70 countries have begun learning how to program. Kodable has allowed students in kindergarten all the way to 8th grade begin their programming education. The best part - over half of them are girls! Teachers are empowered with a tool to enable them to teach programming, and parents are bonding with their kids over a common interest. We are thrilled to be the first step so many take on their journey to digital literacy.

So, I’d like to thank all the parents, teachers, aunts, uncles, grandparents and others who are teaching the kids they love to program using Kodable. You all are great! Keep it up! You are truly helping children form a brighter future with the concepts they learn in Kodable.

We created this blog as a way to keep you connected as we continue to grow and challenge your kids in new ways. You can come here for help, humor, programming information, Kodable news and more! We want to make this a place to learn, share and grow, so don’t be afraid to give feedback. We want to hear from you!
