Kicking off on December 5 and running until December 11, Apple Stores will be running two coding workshops on a daily basis. The first, "block-based coding for young coders", is recommended for kids of ages six and up. The second, "write code with Swift Playgrounds" teaches older students how to write code using Apple's Swift Playgrounds app on iPad.

"Coding is just like any language, the earlier you’re exposed the more successful you’ll be,” said Apple senior vice president of Software Engineering Craig Federighi.
