It’s a given that kids need to learn to code if they want to work as a web designer, software programmer, or computer scientist. Beyond that, you might think that it is a pretty useless skill. Writing line after line of code or debugging software programs do not appeal to the vast majority of people. So why teach kids to code? What is the point if they probably won’t enjoy it or ever actually write a software program?
Coding is more than just writing those lines of code, however. Kids need to learn to code for life. Some people say that coding is the new literacy.
