What’s an Hour of Code?

It’s a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code” and show that anyone can learn the basics to be a maker, a creator, an innovator. It’s a national event. We’ll provide a self-guided tutorial that anybody can do right in a browser.

Computer Science Education Week is observed each year, in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906). This video shows Admiral Hopper’s appearance on Late Night with David Letterman…

The Hour of Code is just one of many different events planned for CSEdWeek.  Please join us on the 10th and see what all the fuss is about.
