"Everyone in this world should learn programming because it teaches you how to think"-Steve Jobs
Kids today are growing up in a radically different world to the one we knew when we were kids. We were one of the generation inspired by the first wave of home computers. Those early computers were very slow, had almost no storage and you had to write code to get them to do even the simplest task.
Today, we have a computer in my pocket that is more than 100,000 times faster and has 100,000 times more memory. Coding is the art of telling a computer how to perform complex tasks. Once you know how to code, you can create virtual worlds within the computer where the only limit on what is possible is your imagination. We want to put this power into the hands and hearts of every child.
Why is it so vital that we teach our children to code? We are already living in a world dominated by software. Your telephone calls go over software-controlled networks; your television is delivered over the internet; people don't buy maps anymore,they use the web; we all shop online. The next generation's world will be even more online and digital.Soon, your house will be controlled with software, some of your medical care will be delivered over the web and your car may even drive itself.
