There’s Still Time to Plan Your Hour of Code, December 7-13: New Minecraft Tutorial Added

With more than 100,000 events already registered, participation in the Hour of Code is expected to double this year. There’s still time to plan your own Hour of Code, and now there’s a new enticement to get students excited about coding: Minecraft! The lessons in this top-requested tutorial teach the basics of computer science, asking students to move Minecraft characters through a block-like world. To keep the lessons accessible to beginners, a simplified system called Blockly is used that involves manipulating icons that tell the players which way to move.

The Hour of Code offers many fun and engaging one-hour tutorials in several languages, including the recently released Star Wars tutorial.

New acmqueue app—free to ACM Members

There's a new way to enjoy acmqueue, our magazine by and for practitioners. You can now download the mobile app via Google play and the Apple App Store. The new acmqueue is also available as a desktop digital edition. Find out more about these options on the Apps page. q-cover-sm.jpg

After more than a decade of providing unique perspectives on how current and emerging technologies are being applied in the field, the new acmqueue has evolved into an interactive, socially networked, electronic magazine, bridging the gap between academics and practitioners of the art of Computer Science.

Broaden your knowledge with technical articles focusing on today's problems affecting CS in practice, video interviews, roundtables, case studies, and lively columns.

The bimonthly issues are free to ACM Professional Members. (One-year subscription cost is $19.99 for non-ACM members.)
