The Programming Foundation

Our mission is to encourage the next generation and generations to come to understand, use, and implement computer programming into their knowledge and their lives. Many K-12 students who are taught computer programming in schools are unaware of the full capabilities of operating systems, computer programming, and the logic behind the operations. Most students have some experience with drag and drop tools, but computer programming goes beyond the simplicity of drag and drop.
With proper education in mind, The Programming Foundation focuses on education that is based on written instruction and concise documentation of examples and processes.
