As the “Hour of Code” program is part of Computer Science Education Week, Apple will be hosting developers and engineers in select cities worldwide. Apple will kick off the week with an event at its Apple Store in Ginza, Tokyo, where Hideko Ogawa and Takako Horiuchi, founders of Flask, will talk about how they got involved in programming and design and will also share some backstage stories about their latest iOS app, FitPort.

Apple will hold special events as part of Computer Science Education Week in Michigan, London, New York, Berlin, and Osaka as well.
