Are you registered?

November 17, 2013

I am!  I’ve only a vague idea of what is going to happen during Computer Science Education Week (starting Dec. 9), but I’ve registered to participate.

Have you heard about this world-wide phenomenon called The Hour of Code?  It is an education effort designed primarily for students (but they are letting the rest of us tag along), developed and presented by the captains of the computer world – I mean the real giants in the field.  Amazon, Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, etc etc. are concerned about the lack of competent programmers being trained right now, so they are planning to enlighten us and demystify the programming process a bit.

During Computer Science Education week, this special tutorial called Hour of Code will be offered to schools, communities, day care centers, families, workplaces, and anyone who wants to learn.  I suggest you register now, so that you will receive emails about upcoming events.
