Live. Laugh. Code.
Welcome to My Coding Place!
Our mission is to impart STEM and coding skills to enable people of all ages to solve problems. We want to inspire and challenge you to be creative with digital solutions.
Why STEM with us? Our goal is to foster critical thinking, through live instruction in small engaging classes. Unlike other coding schools, we also teach digital art, chess and more!
My Coding Place offers multiple programs for children and adults to teach them various skills. In any program, students will thrive in a challenging learning environment where they work with coding instructors committed to excellence in education.
Choose To Learn With A Group
One instructor leads a maximum of 5 students per class in creating projects. Classes will be one hour a week after school or on weekends. Topics range from Scratch to Game Development to Chess and other interesting topics.
These classes are held virtually, at our studio or in select schools. Book a trial lesson to learn more!
Choose Private or Semi-private Lessons
One instructor leads a maximum of 2 students in creating projects. Lessons will be one hour a week after school or on weekends. Topics are customized depending on the interest and level of the student.
Semi-private lessons can be arranged with friends or will be arranged by us. Book a trial lesson to learn more!
Join Camps When School Is Out
We offer seasonal camps for kids ages 7-18 during school holidays. Topics range from Artificial Intelligence to Graphics, Python, and Mobile Development. Book a trial lesson to learn more!

Oliver ran out of his room after class and told me it was the most fun ever and that he couldn’t wait to do his homework! Thank you for a fun class! He loved it!!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
- Emily C, parent of Keyboarding student
Our view is that using software and websites to learn STEM skills, whether face-to-face or online, is like using books or videos. Print and electronic media can be effective but should ideally be supplemented with live instruction. Teachers and mentors will have the biggest impact and be the most positive influence in a child’s STEM journey. To that end, we keep student-teacher ratios low and hire coders on our team, people who love to code and who were or are being trained in Computer Science or related disciplines. Our instructors range from UT students studying Computer Science to professional software developers and consultants who want to pass it on.
We also teach broader STEM topics such as math, chess, and robotics. While these topics may not require coding, they teach students to solve problems. Technology and math are tools to nurture a students' logic, creative and critical thinking skills. While there are many STEM programs online, we are uniquely set up to help students expand their horizons and to participate in a community that is passionate and motivated. See our FAQ on what makes us different, from full-size monitors to a physical location in our community. If you are in Austin, stop by and try our 3D Printer!

WHO WE ARE
Dedicated. Driven. Passionate.
Amy has wanted to teach kids to code since she learned to program in high school. She thinks learning the skill and process are so empowering and that coding teaches critical thinking and problem solving while building a love of learning. She completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois, after student teaching in the Chicago suburbs and attaining certification to teach Math and Computer Science in IL. Her graduate studies brought her to Ann Arbor, MI where she met Fahd when they were both teaching college freshmen to code in C++. He was an electrical engineer and she studied Education and Computer Science, both working in industry afterwards for software companies.
Fahd leads product management and Amy last worked at Deloitte and Oracle to enable businesses with technology. They have lived in Austin for over 15 years and are excited to open My Coding Place in their community. They love learning new things, living in Allandale, and teaching people to code. They are excited for their kids to get older so they can share the rewards of coding with them. Come be a part of their journey to change the world with STEM skills!
