Hello Graduates,

This is a great site for helping K-12 learn to code for all kinds of
devices including cell phones.  I thought many of you may be interested and
want to participate in the "hour of code" which will happen soon.

preview for the first time - learn basic sequencing, repeat loops, and
if-then statements from Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, and Angry Birds.
