Why You Should Learn How to Code


“Everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer…because it teaches you how to think”

-Steve Jobs 

Steve Jobs is probably considered the most revolutionary thinker of the last 50 years. When someone of that status says something, it’s probably a good idea to listen. Jobs (in spirit), and a variety of other wildly successful people, including professional athletes and rockstars are featured below sharing why they believe everyone should learn how to code & program, no matter what profession you are currently in or striving towards. Enjoy…

      It’s the way it teaches you to solve problems and create something out of nothing

    I agree, coding needs to be taught in schools much more. Kids won’t know about coding or their potential to code, if it’s not introduced to them in school.

    I learned to code online for free years ago. This enabled me to create and manage websites. If I can do it, anyone can do it with a little determination.

    Great Post Big Al

    They need to teach coding and finance in school. It’s shocking how many people don’t understand the difference between an asset and a liability.

    Yep I agree as well. My list would be:
    Learn enough yourself be teach your children the difference between an asset and liability. That understanding changes your outcomes for the future.

    Learn how to invest in the stock market not gamble on the stock market. Get started early as soon as you start earning.

    Learn code as a opportunity for employment, starting your own business or a hobby.
