About Yes, One Billion Kids Can Code

note from our founder

When I was 6 years old my Dad introduced me to coding by showing me a prank.  He had coded one button to say “Press this if you’re beautiful” and when you would press it, it would disappear.  I was intrigued and I initially started coding to create similar pranks and other games, and in the process, I developed a real love for creating code.  However, when I talked with my friends about how much I enjoyed coding, they were not at all interested because they thought it was too hard and too boring. This was confusing; how could my friends not like something I like so much. But this made me determined to show my friends how fun coding could be, and I decided to take something they did like - board games - and through that make prove to them the excitement of coding. This gave me the inspiration for creating “Coderbunnyz” - a board game that simplifies complex coding concepts and teaches them in a fun farmyard adventure. It was a crazy process, but it was awesome to see how far passion and determination can take you. To date, not only has CoderBunnyz made coding fun for my friends, it has made coding fun for tons of kids across the world. In fact, at one point in time, CoderBunnyz even trended at #1 out of all of the board games on Amazon.

 

And when I was around 10 years old, I began to understand the importance of coding and computer science; not only was it super fun, it was super important. Coding is problem-solving and by even learning the fundamentals of how it works, you gain a problem-solving mindset, which is extremely important for whatever you choose to go on and do in your life. As Billionaire tech entrepreneur Mark Cuban has stated the best way to make your children set up for success is to make sure that they learn about computer science in this day and era. With the goal to help many others gain the problem-solving mindset that they can use to become a changemaker, I started Yes, One Billion Kids Can Code, a mission to empower 1 billion kids around the world to start their journey in coding, computational thinking, and STEM in order to create the next generation of problem solvers.
