theCoderSchool Opening First South Bay Location

March 08, 2022 // // SOUTH BAY, Calif. - theCoderSchool - whose motto is, “Learn to code. Change the world.” - is opening its first South Bay location that will engage kids in fun classes while teaching them essential coding skills for future innovation. The new coding center will be located at 14103 Winchester Blvd, Suite E, Los Gatos and will celebrate its Grand Opening on Sunday, March 13th from 1 to 3. p.m. There will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony where members of the Los Gatos Chamber of Commerce, including Vice Mayor, Maria Ristow, will be in attendance.

theCoderSchool South Bay is owned by Will Tungpagasit, who brings over 15 years of software engineering experience from many different startups and Fortune 500 companies. In addition to the South Bay location, Tungpagasit currently owns five other theCoderSchool locations including the Pleasanton, Irvine, San Ramon, Walnut Creek, and Mission Viejo schools (Tri-Valley CS).

“We cannot wait to open our doors in South Bay and bring our kid coding classes to a whole new community,” said Tungpagasit. “With South Bay in the heart of the Silicon Valley, we see a lot of technology-educated parents who are eager to get their children into engaging and educational programs such as our coding classes.”

To help theCoderSchool South Bay operate smoothly, Tungpagasit has equipped the location with a strong team of managerial staff. Shai Venkat, the General Manager of theCoderSchool South Bay, has a Ph.D. in Information Systems, taught at Tulane University and San Jose State University, and also worked for a tech startup prior to joining theCoderSchool family.

Dede Leonard, the District Manager of all of the Tri-Valley CS locations, has over 20 years of experience working for technology companies such as Motorola, HP and Oracle, and also as an internet freelancer helping small businesses expand and improve through the use of technology. She currently runs all of the Tri-Valley CS locations and then will soon become a co-owner.

“Our whole team is so passionate about teaching coding to the next generation of innovators,” said Leonard. “We are so excited to help build children’s confidence and essential critical thinking skills. We cannot wait to see what the children of South Bay can accomplish through coding!”

Founded by Hansel Lynn and incubated with the help of his best friend, Wayne Teng, theCoderSchool was built 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 many 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 thrilled to have Will opening his sixth theCoderSchool in South Bay,” said Lynn. It’s exciting to see the brand’s continued expansion in its home state of California and I have no doubt theCoderSchool South Bay will thrive just like Will’s other five locations.”
