Code.org Backed by Tons of Tech Celebrities and They All Want you To Code


A new PSA by Code.org has been composed completely of well-known figures discussing the importance of learning how to code, and how special it is to be able to use a coding language. Appearances from the likes of Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerburg, and even Will.i.am (who is now apparently learning to code) make it onto the video, and they’re all ecstatic about the possibilities found within learning coding.

In this day and age, where digital computing devices make up a large chunk of our day-to-day lives, it’s important to understand how things work, and most importantly, how much opportunity there is out there for those studying in computer science.

As shown in the video, there’s a reason why a programmer’s work space may be one of the best in the world, and that’s because big tech companies like Facebook and Google all need more programmers out of the already small pool available, and by creating a paradise-at-work, programmers will feel happier to work there.

If you’re interested in taking a position down at Silicon Valley, or just want to learn coding on your own behalf, you should have a look at the website as Code.org seems to be content on giving you the opportunities and experience you need. The non-profit foundation is very passionate about bringing coding education mainstream, making it bigger and larger than it is right now, and as Will.i.am rightfully says ‘We all depend on technology, to communicate, to bank, information, and none of us know how to read and write code.’

The various types of code are like languages, and I think soon they should be accepted as a global language that should be commonly taught worldwide.

Do you think it’s important to learn how to write code? Where would you work if you knew how to code? Already a programmer, do you enjoy it?
