What Schools Don’t Teach: How to Code

February 28, 2013

” One million of the best jobs in America may go unfilled…
because only 1-in-10 schools teach students how to code.


Some memorable quotes:

  • “Everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer… because it teaches you how to think.”  

    -Steve Jobs

  • “You don’t have to be a genius to know how to program. You just need to be determined.”
  • “To be able to come up with an idea, and see it in your hands, and then be able to press a button and have millions of people to look at it,… I think we are the first generation to have that kind of experience.”
  • “It is the closest thing we have to a Superpower.”
  • “Learning how to program doesn’t start as wanting to learn all of computer science or trying to master this discipline… it start of because I wanted to something that was fun…”
  • “The whole limit in the system is that there are just not enough people trained in the field today.”

    – Mark Zuckerberg
