Anybody can learn

If you have never learned computer , now this is your chance to learn and support for the “Computer Science Education Week”. If you are willing to learn the course materials are free. Just learn and spread the word.

 

Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) is an annual program dedicated to inspiring K-12 students to take interest in computer science.

Originally conceived by the Computing in the Core coalition, Code.org is producing CSEdWeek for the first time this year, held in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).  (Source http://csedweek.org/about)
