The US president used Hour Of Code event to mark a new milestone in American history: President Barack Obama is now the first US president to write computer program. Specifically, the president used Google’s Blockly tool to craft a tiny segment of code to draw a square.
Code.org introduced the “Hour of Code” campaign last year with the aim of convincing all students to try just one hour of programming and showing them that anyone can learn the basics of programming. As part of the Hour of Code campaign, Code.org created a website that compiles many different hour long tutorials, most of which were created specifically for Hour of Code campaign.
