Programming computers is fun! Knowing how to program teaches you how to think about problems and the best ways to solve them; it teaches you how any problem, no matter how large, can be broken down into a smaller series of more easily manageable steps. It helps develop your imagination. More importantly, programming is knowledge, and knowledge is power.
The people at the non-profit organization Code.org believe that everyone should spend at least one hour learning how to program. Today, computers are everywhere; almost any job you do, you’re going to be using a computer. Learn more about them!
It is with this idea of spending an hour learning to program that Devember was created.
