→ A New Way to Learn Computer Science

I’m incredibly excited to take this opportunity to announce a new project that I’ve been leading here at Khan Academy: Khan Academy Computer Science.

We’re releasing a completely new platform that targets people with no programming knowledge and gives them an engaging and fun environment to learn in.

Over everything else we wanted to emphasize creativity and exploration and make it approachable for people of all ages, including young kids.

This is great. The continuing importance of computers in all aspects of our lives means that we will need more quality programmers to write the systems that run them. I hope kids everywhere take advantage of this.
