one of our collaboration goals at mecourses (and affiliated movements eg world record jobs) is to search for colleges within public university systems where black jobs are core to educators' purposes - from 2015 we can help such colleges sign a contract to help search out jobs courses for all sustainability millennials

for example we dream that every young person be free to learn how to code or has a friend who can help them code social solutions of unique merit due to that young persons particular community building trusts
Computer programming changed my life. If I couldn't program, I wouldn't have been able to write the first version of the Khan Academy website back in 2005.
I first got into programming in 9th grade, when I started coding games on my graphing calculator. That turned into internships in high school that helped me get into and succeed in college.
Now in 2015, programming is more important than ever. I believe that coding should now be considered as fundamental as reading, writing and arithmetic. For my own children, regardless of what career they choose, the ability to design and understand software will be invaluable.
Starting December 7th, millions of children in tens of thousands of classrooms across over 150 countries will be trying out code as part of Computer Science Education Week. We want to amplify this effort.
The Hour of Code is an hour-long introduction to computer programming designed to demystify coding and show students that everyone can learn the basics. At Khan Academy, we’ve crafted several custom-made tutorials for your child that require no prior experience.
Typing: keyboard-based coding (ages 10+).
Drag-and-drop: block-based coding for students with less typing experience and students on iPads/tablets (ages 8+).
Hour of Webpages: Students will learn to make their own webpages using the basics of HTML and CSS (ages 10+).
Hour of Databases: Students will learn the fundamentals of databases using SQL to create tables, insert data into them, and do basic querying (ages 12+).
I hope you'll join us in introducing your child to an Hour of Code—I can't wait to see what everyone makes!
