Hour of Code

Hi all, this week marks the start of the Year's 'Hour of Code' event. All across the world, students will be investing time in developing their understanding of programming language - regardless of ability level or age!
Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools worldwide teach computer science than 10 years ago. The good news is, we’re on our way to changing this. If you've heard about the Hour of Code before, you might know it made history. More than 100 million students have tried an Hour of Code.
With the Hour of Code, computer science has been on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo! and Disney. Over 100 partners joined together to support this movement. Last year, every Apple Store in the world hosted an Hour of Code and even President Obama wrote his first line of code as part of the campaign.
This year, let's make it even bigger. Why don't you join in the Hour of Code 2015? Get involved with an Hour of Code event during Computer Science Education Week, December 7-13.
Try the Hour of Code yourself -- everyone can benefit from learning the basics.
