Heavy Hitters Encourage Students to Learn Coding in New Video

Zuckerberg.  Gates.  Will.I.Am.  Do I have your attention yet?  These heavy hitters from Facebook, Microsoft and the Black Eyed Peas appear in a new Code.org video encouraging students to learn coding.

Code.org is a non-profit focused on computer programming education to encourage students to take coding classes.

Best takeaway quote from the video courtesy Mr. I.Am., “Here we are, 2013.  We all depend on technology to communicate, to bank, information, and none of us know how to read and write code.”

Amen, brother.

And as Code.org points out at the end of the video, one million jobs in America may go unfilled because 90% of schools don’t teach students how to code.
