Apple to participate in Hour of Code with free intro to dev course

Want to learn how to program? is organizing a world-wide campaign to get people started with programming. Apple Stores are offering a free one hour Introduction to Computer Science course as their part of the campaign. From Apple’s web site:

It’s a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anyone can learn the basics of programming. “The ability to code and understand the power of computing is crucial to success in today’s hyper-connected world,” says former Vice President Al Gore. Apple Retail Stores will also host one-hour workshops for children and teens throughout the United States on Dec. 11.
