Apple Retail Stores are going to start training America’s next generation of coders by offering a one hour course to get them started. On Monday, Apple announced it will be offering an “Hour of Code” development class this Wednesday to introduce some students to programming. The free workshops will be held at all of the company’s retail stores during the 5:00-6:00 PM hour. Students cannot just walk in and take the workshop like some of the other workshops that Apple offers, but must make reservations prior to Wednesday.
Learn about the campaign to get students involved in a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anyone can learn the basics of programming. Visit code.org or attend a special Hour of Code workshop at any U.S. Apple Retail Store on December 11, 5 p.m.
The workshops are being sponsored by Apple and Code.org, which helps students all over the country learn how to code. The Code.org campaign hopes to teach a basic level of programming to 10 million students. By setting up its workshops in the Apple Store, Code.org will be able to reach out to more students and help introduce more and more people to programming.
