Apple to Join 'Hour of Code' Campaign

According to Apple Balla, a number of Apple’s stores in the US will join the ‘Hour of Codecampaign by offering one hour long computer classes called "Hour of Code Youth Workshops."  The classes plan on "demystify code" and showing that anyone who wants can learn the fundamentals of simple computer programming.  Those interested in taking part in the campaign should find out from the Apple’s website where is their nearest participating Apple Store, and sign up for the course in advance.

The Hour of Code campaign has a goal of having more than 10 million participants in this year’s Computer Science Education Week, which goes on from December 9 to December 15.

Code.org’s official website offers instructions and tips for those people who are interested in teaching Hour of Code too. There is a number of different tutorials on the website, in about 20 languages, in order to help as many people as possible to take advantage of this free educational event.

Code.org reports that so far about two million people took part in the Hour of Code. Students managed to write more than 55 million lines of computer code.

Apple is one of many illustrious supporters of this interesting campaign. The Hour of Code is also supported by President Obama, Mark Zuckerberg, Shakira and Ashton Kutcher, among many others.

The goal of the Computer Science Education Week is to have more than five million participants in the Hour of Code this year,  from 35,000 schools and from 167 countries.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
