Here are a few comments about coding and computer science from well known persons
Will I am ( in 2013)
Musician/The Black Eyed Peas and Entrepreneur
“Here we are, 2013, we ALL depend on technology to communicate, to bank, and none of us know how to read and write code. It’s important for these kids, right now, starting at 8 years old, to read and write code.“
“Our policy at Facebook is literally to hire as many talented engineers as we can find. There just aren’t enough people who are trained and have these skills today.“
