“There’s an app for that.” So many great ideas have been turned into apps that we download to our smartphones and tablet devices. Maybe you have a great idea for an app but have never written any computer code. Or maybe you’d just like to learn a little more about how your computer works. Here is your chance to learn more about coding and what happens “under the hood”.
The week of December 7-13, 2015 is Computer Science Education Week. You can join in the fun by participating in Hour of Code. Hour of Code is a nationwide initiative organized by Code.org, a public 501c3 non-profit dedicated to introducing people to computer science and computer programming. We need a variety of ideas and perspectives to solve today’s problems. Everyone has ideas – maybe you have the next big idea and you just need to get started with technology to make it happen.
Give yourself an hour. Give it a try. Try it with a friend or your spouse or your kids – research shows that people learn best in pairs. You may find that it is not as complicated as you think. You may find that you like it and it could lead to you putting together the code for that next big idea! Give it a try - it is worth an hour of your time!
