theCoderSchool Set to Open First San Diego Metro Area Location

Silicon Valley-based children’s enterprise franchise comes to North San Diego

May 16, 2018 // // PALO ALTO, CALIF. - theCoderSchool - recently identified as one of Entrepreneur Magazine’s hottest brands - has announced that a new school is set to open in June in North San Diego. The school will aim to show the next generation of kids how inspiring and exciting technology can be, while providing coding skills that are in high demand and applicable across all industries.

The new school, located at 9879 Carmel Mountain Road in San Diego, will be owned and operated by Marcel Brunello and Renata Yamazaki. After searching for a local coding school for their son, Marcel and Renata stumbled across theCoderSchool and wanted to help other parents provide this same opportunity to their children. The couple ultimately plans to open one additional location in the San Diego metro area.

With extensive experience in finance and technology programming, the duo was drawn to theCoderSchool as a result of their strong belief in the advantages of learning how to code. With coding standing as a critical part of ensuring that the next generation learns how to think critically and logically, the couple believes that the ability to understand technology will create countless opportunities for each child’s future.

“We are thrilled to introduce theCoderSchool to San Diego,” said Brunello, who owns and operates a startup focused on Financial Services Market Intelligence. “Learning how to program computers is an incredibly valuable skill, and one that is in demand right now in any industry. Through our 2-on-1, project-based approach, theCoderSchool fills a long-existing void in getting kids involved in learning how to code early. We look forward to improving the ideation and creative thinking skills amongst children in the local community while also having lots of fun.”

Founded by Hansel Lynn and incubated with the help of his best friend, Wayne Teng, theCoderSchool was built with the desire to provide children aged 7 to 18 years with a welcoming environment to develop computer programming skills. theCoderSchool uses a variety of platforms to teach various coding languages, such as HTML, CSS, Python, Javascript and more. Every Code Coaching lesson is customized with the help of trained Code Coaches® who use a 2-on-1 approach to teaching.

“We are always looking for franchisees whose primary goal is to set kids up with a positive, life-long relationship with tech and coding,” noted Lynn. “As we continue to expand our presence in California, it’s crucial to find the right franchise partners who are deeply passionate about the brand and are excited to promote our fun, interactive culture. This is why we couldn’t be more excited about this partnership. Marcel and Renata are hardworking individuals with whom we share the same values. They will play an instrumental role in further establishing our brand in the local marketplace and I am confident that their location will thrive.”

theCoderSchool is also a proud founding member of the International Alliance of Youth Coding Educators. The IAYCE is an alliance of global partners whose goal is to further coding education for youth around the world.
