In the recent years, programming has grown a lot, as more and more people from all around the world are getting interested in the domain and would like to know how software is made, while also probably pursuing a career in this ever-changing, but also incredibly challenging field. It seems like Apple sees the future in programming, reason for which they decided to host an event known by the name of ‘Hour of Code’ which will be held on December 11.
This event can be considered a campaign for students that is willing to offer a couple of programming workshops in order to allow new people to think about the idea of becoming programmers, but also helping out those who have knowledge in the field to improve themselves. With this factor in mind, the one hour workshop that Apple will hold at different Apple Stores from all around the world will feature different top developers and engineers who will go ahead and teach those who are interested in programming more about coding and programming in the ‘Hour of Code’. It is important to remember that the movement was actually started and sponsored by code.org, one of the strongest non-profit websites that encourages people to take on coding and see where the exciting field will take them later in life.
It seems like Apple is also planning to host a couple of more workshops, some of which will be held in the Computer Science Education Week, that will last from December 8 to December 11, so this period can be considered Christmas for those who’re interested in coding, with a lot of other events coming up soon.
What’s even better is that the Apple Stores participating will also feature famous and top coders, such as the folks behind famous games like Clumsy Ninja, or apps like Hopscotch, all of which have gained a lot of popularity in a short period of time.
Based on everything that has been outlined so far, what do you think about the idea of Apple and code.org to partner up and provide coding workshops? Would you participate in one? It would be quite interesting if Apple also started holding those how to use the iPhone and Mac workshops once again.
