Coding Tool for everyone

As a female programmer and teacher, Tomoko Okochi was looking for a way to make coding class fun and engaging for all students; not just for a handful of boys in a classroom, but for everyone including those who love to draw, those who love to write stories, and most importantly, majority of girls. 
When she met Jason Madar, an incredibly skilled developer and a parent of two girls, C3D came to life.

Our Story

Jason was in an accident that held him from returning to his teaching role for one year in 2017. During that time, Jason decided to challenge himself with the most difficult task he could think of; developing a cloud-based virtual reality programming platform.
Tomoko was looking for a way to make coding class engaging for every student.
When the two met in 2018, C3D became a reality.

Actually C3D Java version preceded C3D main app with block-based programming.
Originally, Jason developed Env3D, an IDE with 3D output in 2006. He succeeded making the first-year computer science class very popular with it, but then life got busy.
Fast forward 10 years, during the difficult time mentioned above, he went ahead and migrated the idea to the web using a Java transpiler; the birth of C3D Java version.
Then, his wife said to him “Aren’t you a programmer? Can you make a tool to teach our daughters coding?” .
So, he went even further and made the groundbreaking block-programming version for younger children a reality.

CTO / Computer Science Instructor

Jason Madar

When I started to teach computer science, I noticed right away that the text books are very boring and examples are difficult for students to identify with. Students generally like to have examples that they can identify with that they actually have personal experience with and I also enjoy giving them some room to be creative.
