  1. Hi,
    I don’t know your email address otherwise I would have not used this method to tell you that your website looks like it’s been hacked. The title bar has a link on it that isn’t consistent with encouraging kids to program.
    Best,

  2. Would you know how my son and my husband could register for Devoxx for Kids event in Boston June 21?
