I support the Hour of Code initiative launched by President Obama and backed by Bill Gates and hundreds of other people. It’s a great idea to inspire the next generation of computer science students! Teaching programming to beginners is what I have devoted over 10 years to by writing programming books for beginners. With titles like Video Game Programming for Kids, Beginning Game Programming, More Python Programming for the Absolute Beginner, and Visual Basic Game Programming for Teens, plus a low-cost course at Udemy, this initiative is just the sort of thing I am happy to endorse.
