Hour of Code

There’s a concept getting a lot of press these days, the ‘Hour of Code‘.  The idea is to get everyone to learn just a little bit of programming, to help them realize how this is something that anyone could do.  It’s a nice idea, and is true…the coding is just using tools…the trick is the creativity behind it, and that’s something that is not really taught.   The goal is to have 10 million people participate in this…something I think is pretty easily attainable.  Who knows, maybe the next Google or Facebook will get its start during this effort!

Apple’s getting in the act by offering free ‘Hour of Code Youth Workshops‘ at local Apple stores.  You could also check out a new app from Codecademy to help teach basic coding using your iPhone.
