Instructional Material: Coding Video: The Importance of Learning to Program

Printer-friendly version

This engaging and well produced video gives a great perspective on the importance of learning programming (coding). Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Will.i.am and others describe how learning to program is the closest thing we have to possessing a superpower. It tells how there are over 1 million unfilled programming jobs and shows the cool facilities that high tech companies build to attract talent (nobody asking "do you want fries with that?" in these jobs). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKIu9yen5nc
