The Hour of Coding Effort and Future of Information Work

The Hour of Coding Effort and Future of Information Work

Unless you have been under a rock the last few weeks, you have likely heard of the Hour of Code (HOC). The idea behind HOC is to break the perception that writing code is difficult. This is an educational outreach program for young people to learn about the benefits of being technology literate. The last time I looked, over 82 million people have written over 4 billion lines of code. Why should we care? As technology continues to advance, information about how to use it is becoming more widespread (and in many cases, free). All of this is changing how we educate students and grow our workforce.
