Our Origin Story

CodePath.org started as a technical training company for senior engineers that ran training and onboarding programs for the world’s top technology companies including Facebook, Google, Dropbox, Airbnb, and Netflix. Over 5 years, CodePath created 30+ courses and taught over 2,000 programmers. At the time, the founders’ singular focus was to create a better, faster way for engineers to learn new technologies.

Through redesigning Facebook University, the founders learned that the programming courses they developed to teach professional engineers provided the missing curriculum and support to make college students more likely to persist and succeed in C.S. education.

In 2017, the team behind CodePath.com founded CodePath.org to eliminate educational inequity in technical education starting with college C.S. education.

We believe the best way to grow the number of underrepresented minorities in tech is to make sure they persist in college C.S. programs through graduation.

This belief is producing exceptional results.
