"Why teach coding?
Simply put, coding can change and impact people’s lives.
The effect technology — as a result of computer code — has on this world is incredible. What used to be thought of as impossible is now made possible. What’s more amazing is that our technological accomplishments always open up new realms of possibilities. Cellphones, for instance, didn’t stop at phone calls — they led to streaming music and eBooks and brain teasing games and the ability to map the night sky.
This suggests that learning technology and its underlying language — coding — is extremely powerful."
