Special Event: The Hour of Code with Wolfram
December 3, 2015 — Dana Flinn, Project Administrator, Public Relations
The global Hour of Code event is almost here, and we’re excited to announce that Wolfram will be celebrating this year with a free workshop at our headquarters in Champaign, Illinois. Even if you’ve never programmed before, you can experience the excitement of creating your first website by the time you leave.
The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in over 180 countries. It gives a short introduction to computer science and shows how anyone can get involved.
Join us as we celebrate the Hour of Code! Programming experts will be onsite to help demystify code and demonstrate that anyone can learn the basics. This is a wonderful opportunity to try your hand at a new skill, and have a great time in the process.
Everyone is welcome to join our first annual coding day, no matter their skill level.
When: December 9, 2015, 4–6pm
Where: Wolfram Research HQ, 100 Trade Center Drive in Champaign
Who: Anyone who’s interested—no coding experience needed!
During the event, we’ll go through several activities so you can get a feel for what programming is like. It’s not scary, we promise. And prizes will be given out to everyone!
Those attending will need to bring a laptop or Chromebook, as there will be a limited number of computers available. Parents and teachers are welcome to stay and join as well. For more information, please check out our event here.
