About Us

Code the Future is a global community of volunteer developers and educators providing opportunities for students of all ages, in schools of all locations to learn how to code.

Founded in November 2014 and based in Melbourne, Australia, Code the Future connects volunteer developers with teachers and schools to make these opportunities possible.

Code the Future aims to move the generation of tomorrow from consumers of technology to creators and producers. Through these experiences students are equipped with the skills to not only use technology but to make it work for them. We connect core stakeholders, getting developers into schools collaborating and working side by side with educators and their students.

It is through these partnerships that students will be provided with authentic, real world opportunities and have the chance to take coding to the next level in schools. Any age, any language. The possibilities are endless.
