President Obama Calls On Every American to Learn Code

The President has released a youtube video in collaboration with code.org encouraging Americans to learn code.

President Barack Obama asks every American to give it a shot to learn to code, kicking off the Hour of Code campaign for Computer Science Education Week 2013.

The republican house majority leader agrees, which makes learning code one of the few things that republicans and democrats can support together! Check out his video below.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. Wow, I believe that is twice now I have agreed with him on something!

  2. I learned code at age 11 back in 1957 to get my FCC Ham Radio license…. Oh, you didn’t mean International code…

    I wrote my first Fortran program 7 years later, though, in 1964. Hollerith cards and waiting until the next day to get my printed results back from the window in the computer center.
