As CS Education Week approaches , people are proposing all sorts of ways for programmers of all ages to start coding.
Knowing how to code is a useful thing. It teaches you critical thinking skills. It helps make shiny new websites. It might get you a pretty high-paying job.
And if nothing else, all you need to spend is an hour. One measly little hour of your day. You just got that hour in daylight savings time. You'll probably use that hour on Facebook, or watching TV, or compulsively checking your email/blogs/twitter/tumblr.
So why not spend that hour learning a skill that will completely change your perspective on electronic media? Why not make a 3D video game with Microsoft Kodu?
Who knows, you might like what you do. Maybe you're the inventor of the next Angry Birds. It's worth taking one measly hour to find out.
