We've been on an incredible journey over the last few years. 2020 will see some of the biggest changes in the history of codetoday so it seemed like a great time to bring you up to speed on our story and give you a taste of what's to come.
How it all began
Codetoday started out of the desire to teach coding in an engaging yet thorough manner. As a relatively new subject within children's education, coding was (and still is) often treated as a bit of a gimmick. Codetoday's aim was to change that and to treat it as a proper, academic subject. Our founder, Stephen Gruppetta, left his previous career in academic research as a physicist to set up codetoday and his background has defined how codetoday views programming: as a broad subject with applications across various fields; a subject that is both creative and rooted in the science and maths traditions of critical thinking and problem-solving.
Codetoday welcomed its first customers in April 2016. Although many things have changed since then, the core values of our services have remained the same: exceptional content and exceptional delivery. Whether we are teaching children or adults, the need to have engaging and relevant projects and a teaching style that prioritises clarity and thorough understanding has always been of great importance, right from those early days.
