Last week I had the opportunity to facilitate an Hour of Code event in my community. After the success of Code Week, an instructor at the University wanted to keep doing things like this and asked if we could coordinate an Hour of Code event. I happily agreed as I love this kind of stuff and think it’s really important for anybody, but particularly youth to learn at least the basics of coding and how it works.
Last year I had done this at the local library here, but this year we organized it at a local school where other schools were invited to join. About 60 people (students and teachers) showed up! It was quite impressive!
