December 9-15 is Computer Science Education Week and as part of it, a nonprofit supported by Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and other tech leaders, has announced the “Hour of Code,” a campaign to teach people the basics of coding in an hour. For its part, Apple has announced that it will be taking part in the “Hour of Code” campaign by hosting an hour-long introduction to computer science workshop “designed to demystify code and show that anyone can learn the basics of programming” at its retail stores.
