For the week beginning 7 December, in more than 1,000 locations in Australia, and 96,000 locations around the world, people will volunteer their time, to teach tens of millions of kids, some of the fundamentals of computer science, or “coding” during Hour Of Code.

Learning coding helps kids develop problem-solving skills, logic, and creativity.

By starting early, we can ensure kids have a foundation for success in their future careers, many of which will rely, to some degree, on coding skills.

BlueChilli employs lots of Australia’s best coders, and many other professionals who know a little bit about how code works. And using the free tutorials and games provided by Hour of Code, that’s all you need to help a kid (from four years of age up) learn some fun and educational coding skills.

Join our employees by hosting an Hour of Code session, for just one hour, on any day in the week beginning December 7th this year.

If you’ve got a computer or tablet, an internet connection, and an hour of your time, you’ve got all you need. You don’t need to be a coding professional, or an educator, or even have a workplace that will host a class of kids — contact us if you’d be available to help us on the day at our offices in Sydney or Melbourne. Learn more and register to help out at HourOfCode.com/au
