The power of programming. What most schools don’t teach. I’m experiencing this every night as we build product with skills we didn’t have the night before. It’s intoxicating.
I’m an advocate for anyone learning to code, whether it be simple HTML and CSS or more complex languages like Python or Ruby so this video totally excites me. It’s also interesting to learn that former Toronto Raptor Chris Bosh went to school for computer science! ~the more you know~
Code.org has a lot of helpful resources for those just starting out, but for those in Toronto, I highly recommend taking a class at Ladies Learning Code. I took a Beginner’s Python class with them last summer and though I’m not changing the world (yet), getting to hang out with the local coding community was a great experience.
The more programmers the merrier!
