Celebrating A Very Special Birthday

President Obama, it’s your birthday, August 4,  so come on down!  Barack Hussein Obama II became the first African-American President of the United States in November, 2008. Nevertheless humbly suggested to as  “Mr. President”, Obama  was born to an American mother and Kenyan father. When his father left the family, Mr. Obama was raised by his mother and his grandparents.

Among many historical moments, Mr.Obama also became the first president to write a line of code in JavaScript. In fact, he even kickstarted the Hour of Code campaign.

“While no one is born a computer scientist, becoming a computer scientist isn’t as scary as it sounds.”

-Barack Obama
