What is Hour of Code?

Hour of Code is a Canada wide event that takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week. This year, Virtual Ventures is kicking off the 2022 Computer Science Education Week on December 3rd with our own Hour of Code celebration!

The Hour of Code event started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code”. Now Hour of Code is a worldwide effort to celebrate Computer Science and showcase the many real-life applications of coding.
