This year, Dec. 8 – 14 is Computer Science Education week. Apple participates in the yearly awareness campaign by offering a number of different workshops and events. Dec. 11 is Hour of Code day, a campaign started by Code.org to get more people interested in coding and to advocate for more computer science classes in public education. One of Apple’s workshops will be to participate in Hour of Code with a free, one-hour introductory seminar to learn the basics of computer programming.
The weeklong event will focus on all things related to computer science. Some of the events that Apple has planned include interviews with Flask founders Hideko Ogawa and Takako Horiuchi in Tokyo, Author Theodore Gray in Illinois, NaturalMotion CEO Torsten Reil in London, coding expert Jocelyn Leavitt in New York, and more.
