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 in a now virtual environment.  Join us from across the country to learn new skills!

  

Why STEM with us? Our teachers and owners are coders, and we value and prioritize STEM education over entertainment by providing live instruction in small engaging classes.

My 9 year old LOVES this after school class. She's already teaching her friends at school what she learns each week. I'm so impressed by what she's learned and how excited she is each Monday to attend this class!

Robotics was a good camp. I learned how to build a robot and to program it. The robot assembly was a challenge that made it fun. The kids in the camp were very nice and we became friends quickly. You should go to My Coding Place to learn cool things.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

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.  

It's fun to create something out of nothing, solving problems with digital solutions!  Learning to code or learning Digital Arts requires building projects that introduce new principles and building more projects to reinforce those concepts. We use various platforms - not only websites but robots such as Ozobot and Makeblock, micro controllers such as Arduino and single-board computers like Raspberry Pi - to put programming into practice while focusing on learning different languages such as Python, Java, Javascript, and C++. 

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!
