With this week being Computer Science Education Week (Dec 8-14), he will present an overview on the Hour of Code initiative, along with a how to on starting off with LSL scripting, and a chance to write some code yourself. 

About the Hour of Code
Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this. If you heard about the Hour of Code last year, you might know it made history. In one week, 15 million students tried computer science! The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics.
