It was only two weeks ago that I had the incredible fortune to personally ask the President of the United States to kick off the Hour of Code by trying it himself. I still can't believe it actually happened.
The CEO of Code.org, Hadi Partovi, says that the Hour of Code is "a grassroots movement that includes nearly two-hundred partners," many of whom work tirelessly to bring high quality programming experiences to the public, one hour at a time.
In the eyes of most Americans, Iranian Americans are not yet known as givers or as a community that takes the lead for social change in America. That's why the Code.org initiative by twin-brothers Hadi and Ali Partovi is so different.
