Apple to Participate in So-Called "Hour of Code"

Apple on Monday confirmed that it will be participating in the so-called "Hour of Code", a campaign aimed to engage students in computer programming. The event will take place in U.S. Apple Stores on Wednesday, starting 5:00 PM. Those who want to come and learn something new should hurry up and make a reservation since the quantity of students for each workshop is limited.

The initiative is sponsored by Code.org; there’re many supporters of the campaign among famous people all over the world too.

Learn about the campaign to get students involved in a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anyone can learn the basics of programming. Visit code.org or attend a special Hour of Code workshop at any U.S. Apple Retail Store on December 11, 5 p.m.

According to MacRumors,

The goal of the campaign is to introduce 10 million students to computer programming, with the ultimate goal of every student learning a basic level of programming.

Currently, the number of people who have taken part in the "Hour of Code" is close to 4.5 million, so the aims the organization set are quite realistic. If you’ve always been interested in computer programming, but never had a chance to learn it, visit the official website of the project and get an opportunity to write a couple of lines of code.
