Technical Literacy: Can Everyone Learn to Code?
We now understand that literacy is a right that belongs to every human being.
There is absolutely no reason why you can't join Avi Fombaum, David Byttow, Ellen Ullman (who has a degree in English), and John Pavley on the road to coding. The skill of coding is no different from the skill of reading and writing English or any human language. Forthousands of years literacy belonged to the rich, the powerful, and their administrators. We now understand that literacy is a right that belongs to every human being. In the same way, we live in a coding illiterate world where the skill of programming computers belongs to a priesthood. The Flatiron School, Hacker School, General Assembly, and Codecademy are here to break that priesthood and let us in.
