Great coders are today’s rockstars!

This is a great little video about coding, and how it is not taught in schools (in this instance US schools – but i think we can assume in general).

Steve jobs quotes:

“Everyone in this country should learn how to programme a computer… because it teaches you how to think.”

I love that. I dont code. I want to learn how to code. I can certainly see how Drew (just the guy who created Dropbox) suggests it is similar to learning how to play an instrument in terms of the learning experience because coding is about pushing the realms of possibility. I want to be able to think of something, create something and then publish… Its exciting.

It’s amazing to see this new wave of tech engineering jobs (or lively hoods i prefer) being available but the skill base actually not even being there. This is an amazing thing to actually think about. I want to learn to code, as its the future. How cool is that. This video made me want to learn to code.

And the offices in this are so damn cool too. I love that i saw this question on the wall. Its now written and hanging above my computer.

“What would you do if you weren’t afraid”

no-fear

So check out the video below. And if anyone has any ideas as to the best way to learn how to code, let me know.

Starring Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, will.i.am, Chris Bosh, Jack Dorsey, Tony Hsieh, Drew Houston, Gabe Newell, Ruchi Sanghvi, Elena Silenok, Vanessa Hurst, and Hadi Partovi. Directed by Lesley Chilcott.

  2. Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or
    did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours
    with a few simple adjustements would really make my
