MacRumors:

Apple is setting aside the 5:00-6:00 PM hour at all of its retail stores for its workshops, and reservations are required.

The initiative – its goal is to introduce 10 million students to computer programming –  is sponsored by Code.org, and has the backing of numerous political, corporate, and private groups.

From Apple’s announcement:

“Learn about the campaign to get students involved in a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anyone can learn the basics of programming. Visit code.org or attend a special Hour of Code workshop at any U.S. Apple Retail Store on December 11, 5 p.m.”
