About GetMeCoding

The Story Behind GetMeCoding.com

Getmecoding.com was created by me, Fred Aebli, to be part of a solution. Having witnessed a growing demand for information technology professionals for over a decade, in particular, software developers, and a decline in the number of young people considering this to be a career possibility, I thought something more can be done.

It is a place where I can help you learn and give advice on a pathway for learning how to program and use technology.

Fred Aebli Get Me CodingHaving taught in higher education for over 19 years and kids camps for 15 years, I have learned a few things along the way and I want to share them.

Comment from the Mom of one of my students:
“Hi! I wanted to let you know what a great impact you are making on Ian with your coding class. On the ride home today he could not stop talking…Fred wanted to be an astronaut, Fred saw Star Wars, Fred started programming when he was a kid….”     – Julie B.

"Catching my breathe."

One evening over 20 years ago, I stopped in to see my college computer science professor.  I was doing software development and my project was downsizing.  He offered me a chance to teach an evening class.  I thought it might be good to just “catch my breathe” and get some new direction for project work.  That evening course turned into a two decade journey to teach and inspire the next generation of technologists and problem solvers. Along the way I met many great students and teachers.  I welcomed the process of learning how to teach and it brought me several great teaching awards sponsored by my students and peers.  It has been a humbling experience.  🙂 

Simply put….I want to extend my help further with GetMeCoding.com.

I had alot of fun with Marty Wolff of 94.3 FN The Talker as we talked about how GetMeCoding.com started. I also give a shout out to two influencers…Lou Mongello (wdwradio.com) and Lee Cockerell (Creatinge Disney Magic podcast)…Oh…and my family too!!


Talk About The Magic
Taking a first step in anything is never easy and I talk about that in my talk with Joseph Bollesteros of the Talk About the Magic podcast.  A great podcast that is devoted to helping you take your passion or goal and understand the importance of working toward it.

I am honored and humbled to be a part of this article. THANK YOU TO THE EDITOR and MY FRIEND PAULA ROCHON MACKAREY for making this Veteran article happen!!


Feedback & Reviews

As teachers we never expect anything from our students except to give their best effort. However, from time to time we do hear from our students and those we are helping. I am always humbled by their kind words….
” For all my moms and dads out there who’d like to introduce their littles to coding – Mr. Fred is the best of the best (and a damned awesome person to boot)!! “

What can I do for you?

Let me use my experience in the classroom help you.

I’m a public speaker that can talk to your class, teachers, or parent’s organization

I have appeared at elementary, middle school, and high schools where I have talked about cyber safety/cyber bullying to teachers where I explain how you can teach coding and technology in your classroom.

I’ve worked with kids one-on-one and parents in a group setting

Coding is not hard but as a parent it is hard to understand where to start.  It is also hard to understand what college is today.  I would welcome the chance to give you advice in helping your child succeed in the college classroom.

I spent my entire life around technology…

As a kid raised in the 1970’s and 80’s, I have seen the dawn of personal computing and was amazed by coin operated video games, Star Wars, and space exploration. Fortunately, I had a supportive person in my life, my Mom, who kept me on track to have a goal.

I would not have ever begun my career in teaching and pursuing my passion further if it weren’t for my family. My wife, Jen, and my three children, Jordan, Jillian, and Jake are what drive me to make a better version of myself and ultimately help others also make better versions of themselves. No one ever said it would be easy but I also believe it can be fun.

Need advice?

I know exactly what it is like to be asked to teach something and not be sure how you will do it.  If you are a teacher or homeschooler who wants to inject coding and technology into your curriculum, I can help.
