First 23 computer hubs announced.

The National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE) has revealed the first 23 hubs chosen to improve computer science education in England.

North Yorkshire, Kent, Essex, Hertfordshire and Tyne and Wear all have two hubs, with others scattered around the country in areas such as Devon, Berkshire, Cambridgeshire and Leicestershire (see full list below).
