Code week

Here at Cursor, we love to code and believe that teaching programming skills to the next generation is vital to remain competitive as a country.

The 'hour of code' project launches this week as a part of Computer Science Education Week in the US that aims to get more people learning code and computer science. Code.org is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to help anyone to learn programming that has already won support from Microsoft, Google and Mark Zuckerberg. In its first major campaign, Code.org is encouraging computer science education in the classroom as well as through a series of free online tutorials.

"Don't just download the latest App, help design it. Don't just play on your phone, learn to program it"

There are tutorials that teach programming fundamentals, how to write your first computer program and even how to start building your own apps. So there really is plenty to get your teeth into regardless of your prior experience of computers.

So if you want to learn to programme or find out more about computer science then why not get started with the hour of code.
