The "Hour of Code" is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. One-hour tutorials are available in over 40 languages. No experience needed. Ages 5 to 104 are welcome. The ultimate national goal is to get 10 million people to try computer science for one hour. In addition, the "Hour of Code" demystifies computer science and coding.

The FIRST “Hour of Code” event at Rock Valley College was on December 12th, 2015. The event brought 126 people from the Rockford Region to learn more about Computer Science fundamentals and coding! To keep this momentum going Professor Chuck Konkol of Rock Valley College started hosting monthly “Hour of Code” Workshops!
