Unless you’ve recently travelled to Pluton, you know how Code has taken the web by storm last week. With Zuck, Gates, Dorsey and other internet superstars as ambassadors, we’ve discovered that coding isn’t actually difficult, and if you know how to program a computer, chances are you’re likely to become a rockstar.
Tell me about the American dream.
I’ve never coded – yet I don’t feel dumber than those who know how to do so. But don’t get me wrong, I actually wish the Code initiative had been around in the 90s and it’s been long since I made plans to take classes, so I’m sure the current Code vavavoom will help. Thanks for that leaders and trendsetters.
Now if programming a computer should be taught in school, what about cooking? What about sewing? What about DIY-ing? What about giving first-aid?
These might not teach you how to think and for sure ain’t sexy. But they will teach you life. As in ‘real-life’. You know ? The every-day-kind-of-life.
