Empowering the Next Generation of Software Leaders

For today’s students, education is not enough. They need access to the digital economy. At Vista, investing in the software ecosystem is of paramount importance. Through our partnership with Code.org, Vista and our companies are helping to ensure that every student has the opportunity to learn computer science. Through our hands-on coding events and investments in Code.org, we can empower the future of our technology community.

The Hour of Code is a grassroots campaign started by Code.org and supported by over 400 partners, including Vista and our companies. Through this global movement, we are demystifying code through a one-hour introduction to computer science.

    Developing Tomorrow’s Digital Workforce

    The Vista family believes that the actions we take today will determine the success of the technologists, leaders, and creators of tomorrow. To ensure the future of our industry, Vista and its portfolio of companies have made a sustained commitment to Code.org, a non-profit dedicated to expanding access to computer science and increasing participation by women and underrepresented minorities. In addition to our $3 million donation, which will be used to broaden digital access to students and improve and expand Code.org's courses, our community continues to work alongside the organization to host “Hour of Code” events in our offices throughout the US, and increasingly at the offices of our portfolio companies globally.
