The group heard from Brendan Reville, a software engineer at, and Patrick O'Sheen, Pacific Northwest regional manager for Microsoft TEALS (Teaching Education and Literacy in Schools). 

Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science that anyone can organize; it's designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. All materials and tutorials are available online at in over 40 languages. Tens of millions of students across the world participate in Hour of Code during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 7-13).
