The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts. The Hour of Code takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week. The 2017 Computer Science Education Week was from December 3-9.
In this year’s event, OmniTech Consultancy organized the Hour of Code at iceAddis. More than 40 students participated and were awarded certificates at the end.
