Coding For Kids - our Story

Hansel and Wayne have been best buds and business partners for almost 20 years, partnering on whimsical (but unsuccessful) concepts like Fantasy TeeVee (fantasy sports for TV shows), HowsThisHouse (a hot-or-not for house designs), and even a line of Asian-themed, inappropriate T-Shirts!  A few years ago, Hansel opened a School of Rock franchise in Palo Alto, successfully running it for a year before hiring a manager to take over.  While searching for his next opportunity, Hansel happened to be looking for places his own kids could learn to code.  Surprisingly, smack in the center of the tech capital of the world - there weren't many good options!  Ah… lightbulb!  Hansel's experience with software and a kids-ed business, combined with Wayne's uncanny operations skills was like putting together peanut butter and jelly, Starsky and Hutch, Steph Curry and a basketball.  In other words, DESTINY!  And thus theCoderSchoool was born.
