Episode 130: #OnTheStacks in the blu door studio with Fred Aebli aka Mr. Fred, creator of GetMeCoding.com.
As a Star Wars ‘1977’ kid, he was propelled into thinking “how do I get to space?” After graduating from Penn State, he realized the only way to get there was via the Astronaut Corps, so he pursued a military commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the US Marines, traveled the globe pre-911, and was eventually promoted to Major.
When he returned home from active duty, he worked as a network engineer on early stage internet development for Bell Atlantic (now Verizon), as a software developer for Oracle, and later became an IST professor at Penn State.
After seeing a growing decline in kids exploring coding and “tinkering” with tech, along with the growing demand for IT professionals, he came up with the idea of GetMeCoding.com to teach kids coding and show them how fantasy/sci-fi can be doorways to new opportunities.
