The FIRST “Hour of Code” event at Rock Valley College was on December 12th, 2015. The event brought 126 people from the Rockford Region to learn more about Computer Science fundamentals and coding!
To keep this momentum going Professor Chuck Konkol of Rock Valley College hosts monthly “Hour of Code” Workshops! These “Hour of Code” workshops are OPEN TO PUBLIC! The workshops are scheduled monthly. The "Hour of Code" workshops focus on creating a drag and drop app to share with family and friends while the "Learn Coding with Robots" focus on coding and robotics.
