  • "From my point of view, I have nothing but great things to say about The Coder School in Fremont. They're always there when I need them. I see them bend over backwards to help me and most especially my son. The instructors there are knowledgeable and personable to all students. They're super helpful in anything that you need. The ratio of student to instructor there is great. I know that my son is getting ample and personable time with the instructors there. My son is coding! I'm excited, but also dumbfounded at the rate that he's learning. From my son's point of view, he loves being there. The day that he goes, he can't wait to get there and I usually have to drag him out of there at the end of his session. He LOVES all the instructors there. And on the weekends when they have open hours to students, the instructors and workers are more than accommodating to my son. Every weekend he asks to go there and he'll use up every second to be there. He loves the environment. It is a fun learning atmosphere to be in. I can't get over the fact that he loves coding this much -- and that he's learning it from such a young age. He’s also made friends there. It us a safe and friendly environment for kids of all ages. I know, I’ve seen it myself. In my opinion, there isn't any other place that I would rather have my son be. The more he's there, the more he wants to code. Luis and his crew have something special there. I would highly recommend for any parent/student to go check out this amazing coding school. It is one of the best investments I’ve ever made and I know that it will do wonders for my son’s future. Thank you to the Coder School! "

Meet Our Owner and GM

Luis Lopez-Echeto

Hello! Thanks for stopping by. My name is Luis and I'm the General Manager and Owner at theCoderSchool in Fremont, CA. As a child I was always intrigued by technology and computers in particular which led me into getting a BSc in Microelectronic Engineering - designing and building the electronic circuits inside computers, as well as an MSc in Software Development from RIT in Rochester, NY. Thanks to my background, I've had a very successful and rewarding career and I got to work with some of the largest software companies out there like Oracle, LinkedIn and Microsoft as well as hundreds of other companies in many different fields.

My biggest passion is learning, and what better way to learn than to teach children. I'm extremely excited to be able to share my experience with our students and empowering them to take control of their destiny and, of course, change the world =) Want to know more? Feel free to reach out to me directly at luis@thecoderschool.com.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can coding help kids?

Many folks might think learning to code is so kids can actually code an app. Honestly, that's not usually the case! Coding real-life apps is tough. Despite what the media says, your kid is not writing some million dollar app by themselves in a month. Instead, coding helps kid *solve problems*. Coding is all about debugging and logically thinking through the fix. Breaking a large problem into smaller parts, logical sequencing, these are all important problem solving skills for any kid (or adult!). A second benefit is confidence and passion in technology. There's plenty of time for kids to learn the latest real tech (which changes all the time), but the time to build passion for technology (and a foundational knowledge base) is when they're young!

What is the best coding language to learn as a beginner?

The truth is, Scratch is amazing for a beginner at ANY AGE. If someone is truly a beginner, a platform like Scratch can allow them to create and engage much more quickly. Older kids (say 11 and up) can soon move to a language like Python or Javascript. Just remember that it takes a LOT MORE work to get Python/Javascript to do the same thing as Scratch - so the kids will need some patience. No matter what anyone tells you please DO NOT start learning with Java or C++! Those languages are too advanced to start with, and we've seen it too often - kids will give up because it's so hard! Definition of backfiring!

What is the best age to start coding?

It depends - we think the best age is the age they want to do it! Listen, there's plenty of time to *really* learn to code - there's a reason Comp Sci is a really tough college degree. The important thing in the younger years is to bring out the desire and passion to learn more - that's why at theCoderSchool we customize our projects based on the student's interests and really focus on engagement before learning.

How do I get accepted into a college computer science program?

These days, top colleges are incredibly selective. Learning to code by itself probably won't help you stand out enough. Instead, consider building a unique Coder Story. Can we help? Sure can!

What are the benefits of kids learning to code?

Children of all ages can benefit from learning coding skills, and students who get hands-on experience with computer programming go on to excel in other subjects Coding helps students gain computer proficiency and build real-world problem-solving skills. Exploring technology is essential for computer literacy. Building fundamental coding skills encourages creativity, promotes teamwork, and enhances spatial intelligence and logical thinking skills. Kids of all ages can learn computer science. For teenagers, learning how to code leads to the development of transferable skills that can be applied in future careers or workplaces. If your student is interested in data science or machine learning, a self-paced course in computer programming can help pave their path.

As you and your family consider coding programs, it helps to keep in mind:

  • The age of the student (we can teach kids as young as six)
  • Their individual interests (such as Lego, Roblox, robotics, video game design, or artificial intelligence)
  • Any previous hands-on experience with coding (even exposure to mobile apps or playing with Minecraft counts)
  • Preferred learning style (we offer both flexible and structured curricula and support self-paced learning)
  • Social skills (some students learn best in one-on-one lessons, while others favor teamwork)

    Whether the student wants to explore Minecraft modding in Minecraft camp, is interested in HTML, or wants to learn block-based coding like CSS, our interactive classes provide a great coding experience.

    Can a 6 year old do coding?

    Sure! Kids this young are just developing their sense of logic. While some advanced 6 year olds are ready to dive into learning Scratch, many are better off with fun learning apps like Kodable or Scratch Jr..

    How do kids learn to code?

    Same way adults do! The best way to learn something is to just DO it. It's not about all the theory and fancy words, it's about just doing it over and over again. If you're a parent with a college degree, think back. How much of that theoretical curriculum did you really use in your job? Or did you really learn your job by DOING your job? It's the same with kids, we'll mentor and guide them, but most importantly, we'll get them to code something custom that they want to code!

    Where is the best place to learn coding for kids?

    We're a little bit biased, but we think it's theCoderSchool! There's no better way to learn anything, including coding, than just doing it with a mentor to guide you. Online or in person, our Code Coaches will give you that low-ratio full attention that every kid deserves!
