What’s an Hour of Code?

It’s an introduction to computer science designed to show that anyone can learn the basics. Code.org provides hour-long tutorials featuring Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Angry Birds and Plants vs. Zombies — for your computer, tablet, smartphone or with no computer at all!

Over 40 million students have tried the Hour of Code. This year, the movement to recruit 100 million students of all ages to try computer science is coming to Romania during Computer Science Education Week, December 8-14.

With the Romanian Hour of Code, Code.org & ADFABER – Technology for Social Change aim to help demystify that coding is difficult and enable parents, teachers and students across the nation get a fun introduction to coding.

We hope that this will help build awareness and confidence in the positive changes learning coding basics will produce”, said Tanya Parker, International Program Manager at Code.org

The Romanian Hour of Code team is led by Alin Chiriac, Founder and CEO of ADFABER.

Code.org is a non-profit dedicated to expanding participation in computer science education by making it available in more schools, and increasing participation by women and underrepresented students of color. Our vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer programming. We believe computer science should be part of the core curriculum in education, alongside other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses, such as biology, physics, chemistry and algebra.
