It's an effort to get five million children around the world to learn at least one hour of computer science. President Obama and House Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor support the campaign, along with a number of top celebrities, and the heads of Facebook and Google. Apple and Microsoft stores are holding "Hour of Code" learning events this week.
