What They Don’t Teach You in Schools

We’re a little late on this, so many of you may have seen this video already.

But this a great little gem on learning coding, and all the great, inspiring people who code and have coded some of the programs that we use every day! With the amount of star power in this video, from Bill Gates, to Mark Zuckerberg to even Chris Bosh, I think society is on it’s way to making being a techie cool. Learning to code is the new literacy.

This brings to light other things, such as: why haven’t most schools jumped on this yet? As many DevTO people can attest, coding is a big part of their lives, and becoming an even bigger part of society as we integrate more of our lives with emerging technology.

It’s interesting because there has been a push for teaching coding in elementary schools in places such asĀ Estonia, but many schools in North America have not caught on to the trend yet.

Either way, check out the video, show everyone you know, and get inspired!
