Enrollment in computer science programs continues to skyrocket. To effectively meet this growing demand, educators must find new ways to teach CS at scale without sacrificing instruction quality.

We created codePost.io to solve this problem. Our free grading tools empower educators to give high quality feedback on student code without spending inordinate amounts of time grading.

Educators at universities around the world have used codePost to efficiently provide useful feedback to tens of thousands of students.

We started codePost.io as CS undergraduates, inspired by the growing pains of our own department. We know firsthand that CS students drive improvements in universities, communities, and organizations. It’s within their DNA to seek out problems and build solutions to those problems.

Undergraduate and graduate students contribute to CS education in their university in a number of ways, from building tools to serving as teaching assistants to mentoring younger students.

We created the codePost Computer Science Education Scholarship to recognize and encourage students who advance CS education within their school and in their communities.
