Students will be participating in the 2016 Hour of Code this week! Why? "Computer science is foundational. Every 21st-century student should have the opportunity to learn how to create technology. Computer science is changing every industry on the planet. The basics of computer science also help nurture creativity and problemsolving skills, and prepare students for any future career" (https://hourofcode.com/files/hoc-one-pager-canada.pdf)
Over the next 10 years, there will be over 1.4 million jobs in computer science with only about 400,000 graduates qualifying for those jobs.... a shortage of about 1 million people...
