New vid from Code.org champions the democratization of coding
Check out this fun, inspiring little vid from Code.org.
Dedicated to the democratization of coding, Code.org is a non-profit foundation that works to expand computer programming education to more of America’s classrooms.
The video seeks to debunk the long-held stereotype that coding is some grossly complex and mysterious science meant only for genius nerds to tackle. Sure, some of today’s greatest genius nerds, including Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, make their appearance in the video. But they, along with stars like Will.i.am and the Miami Heat’s Chris Bosh, discuss some of the lighter side of coding as well as the importance of programming in the modern world — from our day-to-day life to our economy and job market.
