It sucks that Computer Science Education Week happens during our black out week, but that doesn’t mean you can’t explore on your own or take a workshop offered in Montreal!

The Apple store on St. Catherine street is giving short Hour of Code workshops for kids on Thursday after school.  There is also an introduction to Ruby (the language Clay Jannon uses to build his virtual 3D bookstore in Mr. Penumbra!) for girls aged 8-13 and their parents given by the wonderful women at Ladies Learning Code. This is happening tomorrow so if you are interested you should register now!

Don’t have time to attend a workshop? That’s okay! Take one of the amazing tutorials on the Hour of Code website. I highly recommend the Khan academy’s introduction to java script. It is fun, interactive and easy to follow!
