New at CSEdWeek, December 7-13: Hour of Code Star Wars Game and Volunteer Opps for Software Engineers

Preparations for the Hour of Code are kicking into high gear, with more than 70,000 organizers signing up to plan activities to get students (and others willing to learn) excited about programming.

Central to the Hour of Code events are one-hour tutorials, which are fun ways of showing students—via games, apps, stories, animations, and more—how code works. An exciting new offering this year is the Star Wars tutorial, which enables users to learn basic concepts of programming using "blocks" of code while building their own Star Wars game. The game is available in several languages. More new tutorials are in the pipeline.

If you're a software engineer, volunteer to spend an hour or two in a classroom and spark imaginations—this is a great opportunity to engage young minds in the technologies of the future!

Teachers, learn more about how to teach an Hour of Code and host an Hour of Code in your community.

Since 2009, ACM has partnered with, a nonprofit coalition dedicated to expanding computer science education. Computer Science Education Week is held annually the second week in December in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper.

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.)
