The “Hour of code” event to introduce young people to computer science has been very well received by the community. As time permits, I have been reviewing blog posts and retrospectives on the event. My friends from EduVue provided a nice reflection on the “Hour of code” event at their schools. It’s exciting to hear that kids loved the teaching and desire to continue learning more about writing code and making apps. Make sure to follow the posts of these education technology professionals and EduVue. Jaime Vandergrift, Catherine “Cat” Flippen, Kate Matthews, Stacia McFadden, and Amy Pietrowski are inspiring people and teachers.
