Jeremy Keeshin – Co-Founder and CEO of CodeHS
Jeremy Keeshin is the co-founder and CEO of CodeHS, an online platform that teaches students computer science in an engaging way.
Jeremy and his fellow co-founder Zach Gallant started CodeHS in 2012 after graduating from Stanford. Both hold computer science degrees and care deeply about the potential of computer science as a subject that is equally as important as reading and writing. They understand that CS on its own doesn’t do much to attract attention from would-be learners, and providing curricula that makes it fun goes a long way to getting students interested. Beyond having formal training in CS it doesn’t appear that Jeremy has much experience other than being a TA for CS106 at Stanford. Their team consists of four software engineers and three curriculum developers, and a whole host of other positions. They hold a variety of backgrounds but there seems to be a good blend of technology, education, and academic qualifications.
