View of the Week: #POTUS does the Hour of Code & Other Brief Thoughts


The Hour of Code is a fabulous initiative which aims to do a simple yet profound thing: to teach folks to code.    It was a welcome scene as President Obama and Vice President Biden swung by to lend their support to this initiative.    One organization that has seen the light has been the Scouts with its' continued emphasis on 21st Century skills and the development of new Merit Badges.   Troop 772 of Laguna Niguel held one such "Geek Week-End" whereby the team was able to learn Ruby & HTML5 and create webpages. We here @ #Outsiders were witness to this fabulous day where Scouts learnt to code in Ruby & HTML5 and were able to create a website--vital skills in today's ever changing World.
