CodeHS: Software Engineer in San Francisco

CodeHS is a site that helps teach computer science to beginners with a focus on working with high schools. We work with students and schools all over the US and all over the world. Make a big impact on a small team in an exciting space.

See more at http://codehs.com/jobs

We are a company with a social mission, and we believe that we can help make computer science more fun and accessible to high school students. If you are a programmer, but also consider yourself a teacher--or if you love coming up with creative ways to explain things--or if you want to work on a meaningful project instead of programming widgets at the widget factory--then send us an email. You can email me at zach@codehs.com

We're a small team of 6 with funding and a business model and soon to be a lot bigger. We have a monthly team hackathon (and recently had one for 150 students and teachers at Facebook http://facebook.com/codehs ), and are always thinking of ways to make working more fun.

See what students and teachers say about CodeHS: http://codehs.com/testimonials

How We Start Teaching:

We start teaching programming with "Karel the Dog," a dog that lives in a grid world and only knows four commands: move, turnLeft, putBall and takeBall. We use karel to teach that computer science is about problem solving. We start in JavaScript, but use a thin teaching library because we believe in teaching concepts over syntax.

Try it out and let us know what you think at codehs.com.

Our site is built in python, django, JavaScript, and we're on ec2.

CodeHS was recently a winner at NBC's Education Nation and has been featured on the Today Show and a number of other places.

Thanks! Zach

You should really check out CodeHS -- http://codehs.com

It's focused on providing a strong fundamental background to absolute beginners, so they learn not just how to write a program but how to write a good program. We teach good programming style, variable and function naming, commenting your code.

Part of the curriculum is reading other peoples' code and critiquing it. Students learn to think like a programmer, not just follow instructions.

Right now, most of our content is a bit more basic than your recommended path to mastery, but it's all the steps to get you there. You can't underestimate the difficulty of understanding the difference between if and while for a beginner. Or the idea of parameters and return values, things that people with experience often take for granted.

also, feel free to email me if you want to learn more. zach@codehs.com

I'm a bit biased, as I've worked with the guys behind CodeHS (tell Jeremy hi!), but I can vouch that it is one of, if not the the best, way to start learning to program.

The emphasis placed on control flow throughout the course has been extremely helpful to beginners. Also, the integration of proper programming style into lessons makes sure beginners write quality code, something I see missing from many courses.

I like to think of CodeHS as a gateway drug into programming. Once someone completes the first few series of lessons, taking on larger libraries is much easier.

congrats, guys!
