The team at code.org published a terrific video encouraging people to learn to code. It features some of the biggest names in our industry and it does a great job at explaining why programming skills are so important in this day and age. They want every student in every school to have the opportunity to learn to code. I’ve shared before the story of how I became a programmer. I was privileged to have access to a computer at a young age and a dad who encouraged me to learn to code. Considering the ever increasing demand for programming skills, it’s crazy that nine out of ten U.S. schools don’t offer computer programming classes at all. This is a great initiative to raise awareness and help inspire the next generation of developers.
