Hour of Code - Are You Participating?

I would guess you could look around at this moment and observe several items that require the skills of computer programming.   How many do you see?

Most of us understand all the games on our cell phones are computer programming generated, but what about items not so recognizable like stop lights, microwave ovens, or automobiles.  This list is practically endless.

It is estimate by the year 2020 there will be 1,000,000 more computing jobs than students.  So what can we do?  Take part in the movement to inspire our youth and involve them in the hour of code.  It's a start.

The Hour of Code takes place December 8-14, 2014.  Over 52 million have tried an Hour of Code.

Here are a few resources that all work on an iPad.  Select one that works for you, or maybe try a couple.
