Hour of Code
Challenge yourself during the Hour of Code!
The Hour of Code is "a global movement by Computer Science Education Week and Code.org reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries through a one-hour introduction to computer science and computer programming." -code.org
Every year we make courses freely available to the public so that they can challenge themselves to create amazing programs, apps and web pages. We love being a part of Code.org's initiative!
