Zach Sims tells the story of Codecademy, an online platform to learn coding, and gives a quick outlook to the future of education.
According to Zach, there's more to come: "We want to teach people the skills they need in the 21st century." He has founded Codecademy with a friend in college, when they saw fellow student graduating from Columbia and finding themselves without jobs and 200.000 dollars in student debts.
Zach thinks that there's a gap between the skills traditional institutions are teaching and the ones employers are looking for. Codecademy has started small, but will continue to add courses and programs to learn that are built on the idea to offer a digital native learning experience that goes beyond posting video lectures online.
