The Hour of Code is here!

To kick off another Computer Science Education Week (December 7 — 11), we’re excited to join for the Hour of Code. The quick and easy program teaches anyone to code with an hour of fun that shows the amazing things you can create with code. And this year, we’re even more excited to announce that the Hour of Code tutorial uses Minecraft to teach code to all!

Read the full announcement at the Microsoft News Center.
