From December 1st through the 14th, Apple stores are hosting free classes to teach people how to code. Each of these sessions will takes place for only an hour over the two week period. For kids 6-12, the sessions will involve coding with robots. Everyone 12 and up will be given a tutorial on Swift, the Apple programming language used on most Apple products. If you are interested in doing this and/or bringing your children into it, check with your local Apple store for class times and to sign up.
The St. Louis based organization known as The Digital Blaze has made the difficult decision to officially remove social media sites Tumblr and Google Plus from its promotion campaign due to lack of volume and activity. CEO and Founder, Dan Worch, says there aren’t enough hours in the day to interact with followers, promote, and perform everything necessary to make The Digital Blaze a true success in either of those social media platforms. The Digital Blaze has previously posted its content on LinkedIn. However, Dan Worch stated that since The Digital Blaze occasionally posts off color content, he strongly felt that LinkedIn was not an appropriate platform to post its content given Linkedin’s professional reputation. The Digital Blaze will continue to share its content on Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, and occasionally posts their own videos on their YouTube channel. At this point, The Digital Blaze is considering using Instagram as a possible social site in the future. Co-Owners Dan Worch and Melissa Warren want to give a heartfelt thanks to the users on both Google Plus and Tumblr for following and supporting them and truly hopes they will continue to do the same on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and/or WordPress. The Digital Blaze will cease posting content on Tumblr and Google on December 1st, 2018.
