This week is shaping up to be the biggest Computer Science Education Week yet.The annual event, meant to promote computer programming education worldwide, is focusing on a new “Hour of Code” initiative powered by the non-profit Code.org. The goal: To give students a taste of coding with an hour-long program.

By now you may have heard about the United States’ woeful lack of public coding classes, despite the economy’s ever-growing need for technical workers. For five years now, Computer Science Education Week has existed as a call to mobilize people to learn to program.
