Born and raised in Jordan, Amjad grew frustrated by the state of Computer Science education and the lack of available means to introduce beginners to programming. Amjad spends most of his days thinking about and developing browser tools that help people learn and explore new programming languages.
Amjad joined Codecademy and moved to New York to pursue the mission of making coding accessible to anyone with a browser.
