Hour of Code – an hour of programming for everyone
In the world
Hour of Code is an event that takes place worldwide and is accessible to everyone who wants to learn more about programming. In fact, the event aims to demystify the idea that programming is something difficult and that not everyone can have access to it. With tutorials translated into more than 40 languages, Hour of Code has reached more than 180 countries. Worldwide, so far, tens of millions of students and pupils have had an hour of programming through this event. The beautiful part of this event is that anyone can take part in it, regardless of age or technological training.
In Romania, magic is here
Hour of Code has reached more than 45 cities in Romania since 2014. Here, it is supported by local stars who understood that programming and, implicitly, technology are an important part in the development of the local community. The programming hour usually takes place during Computer Technology Education Week and is brought to Romania by Adfaber, the only NGO in the country that supports community development and social change through technology. And in order to be accessible to everyone, regardless of the area they are in or the financial possibilities they have, there are also materials that do not require the use of a computer.
Because we, Toud team, believe in the role of education, we got involved and created Hour of Code home page.
