Local schools take on 'An Hour of Code'

Education > Consortium of computer experts launch initiative

Right clicking on a web page often brings up some pretty interesting options. One of the commands that often comes up is “View Source,” a command that reveals the “code” behind what makes a web page a web page.
 As computers take over more and more areas of our lives, some think that it’s time people start exploring the “View Source” function as something a little more than a curiosity.
After all, they figure, if the average person can learn code, then the better off everyone will be in a computer-operated world. And that’s just not the code behind Web sites, but the code in software, smartphone apps and things that haven’t even been thought of yet.
“Nowadays, almost any job requires the use of a computer, whether that’s word processing, making web pages, sharing information or building applications,” said David Kratzer, a computer scientist who works at the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
