Congratulations to all participants!
As you can see on code.org/learn, the TouchDevelop Hour of Code tutorials had more than 130,000 participants during CSEdWeek from December 9-15, 2013!
The TouchDevelop participants earned more than 840,000 trophies for completing individual tutorial steps, writing millions of lines of code!
Games, apps - you can build anything with TouchDevelop! For the Hour of Code, we have been featuring six interactive tutorials that show you how to get started.
Here’s the ranked list of our most popular tutorials, and how long it takes for the typical participant to complete the coding, and how much time one typically spends playing and enjoying the game.

The turtle drawings tutorial had the highest completion rate – more than 60% of all participants who completed the first step also made it through all remaining 18 steps.
It’s not too late to experience the joy of coding with TouchDevelop for yourself! Try one of the tutorials at https://www.touchdevelop.com/hoc
Check out our educators notes if you want to organize an event or class.
If you have completed the tutorials, read the notes on love me not and the notes on turtle drawings. The notes build on what you learnt in the tutorial and give you the fundamental understanding of some of the elements of TouchDevelop. Together with your imagination, you will be able to create scripts that amuse, amaze, and assist yourself and others.
