Subject: The Hour of Code is coming
When I first started Khan Academy I managed to pull the site together with some pretty rusty coding skills I had picked up in college. The founders of Facebook, Instagram, and Google all started their journeys with just one line of code. That's how all great coders start out - anyone can learn!
This week over 5 million people across 167 countries will try out coding for the first time - would you like to join them? At the end of your hour, you'll have coded your very own greeting card to send to someone this holiday season. ...
Coding may seem a little scary to some, but we've made a fun hour of coding as part of the 'Hour of Code' that'll have you building things in a snap. Now you'll be part of creating our technology future, not just living in it!
If you can type, you can code:
I can't wait to see what you make. Hack away, future Zuckerberg!
Founder of Khan Academy, lover of code
P.S. Anyone can code - including you! Spend a few minutes checking out the lesson and make a holiday card for someone special.
