Ernest N. Prabhakar, Ph.D.
Founder and Chief Steward
The company was founded in September 2014 by Dr. Ernie, an MIT and CalTech physicist by training. He spent the last 17 years at Apple Product Marketing, where he helped bring Mac OS X Server to market. He was inspired to develop a new programming paradigm that would making coding so easy that kids could create complex games in just one hour. Thus, the Hour of NODE was formed.
Our vision is to bring humanity to programming through meaningful experience. Our mission is to build tools and games that empower kids of all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels to express themselves while nurturing valuable programming skills.
