- In 2013, Code.org was launched by twin brothers Hadi and Ali Partovi with a video promoting computer science. This video became #1 on YouTube for a day, and 15,000 schools reached out to us for help. Since then, we've expanded from a bootstrapped staff of volunteers to build a full organization supporting a worldwide movement
