The Hour of Code

Fremont, CA and some Newark, CA teachers are pursuing "The Hour of Code," 20 puzzles to teach anyone what coding or programming your computer is.  

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates we will need 1.4 million computer programmers in the next generation of American workers.  They estimate only 400,000 will pursue computer coding, thus the big push to help people understand a skill that will be key to how our society will function in everything from agriculture to entertainment to space exploration:

Barack Obama, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, female entrepreneurs and programmers, the creator of the Black Eyed Peas and even a NBA star who programmed in college introduce code.org and each puzzle topic: loops, if-statements and if-else statements.

If they really wanted to produce more American programmers, they should consider making public colleges affordable for the average family.
