Join in for the Hour of Code 2015. Please get involved with an Hour of Code event during Computer Science Education Week, December 7-13. The Hour of Code, organized by the nonprofit Code.org and over 100 others, is a statement that people are ready to learn critical skills for the 21st century.

For the Hour of Code, I have split it up into two different sessions. The early session at 5:30 pm will be geared towards elementary school aged children and sign up is through Eventbrite:

The second session, which will be our ROALUG December meeting, will be a more intermediate level course featuring Google Coder. This educational package runs on a Raspberry Pi and provides a web server to use as you learn to code HTML, CSS, and Javascript. For the Hour of Code, we will code a basic web page using the Google Coder environment.

You do not have to be a member on Meetup.com to attend this session. Free registration for the intermediate level session is also on Eventbrite:
