Coders are the new rockstars

By Richie DembovskisMarch 7th, 2013BlogComments Off

Here’s an interesting video by Code.org, a non-profit foundation dedicated to growing computer programming education. In a rather inspirational video pulling out the big guns in the computer/online world (and Will.I.am), it stresses the importance to have coding taught in schools.

Obviously being a web design agency we totally agree this should now be a key part of education with the digital world we now live in. This video certainly will make some want to become a coder, with the “awesome” sound studio in the office, being able to skate through the corridors, work on a sunny Californian rooftop etc. Whilst this usually isn’t the case for 99.9% of the industry it does make a good case.

But coding certainly isn’t easy, being a designer in a design and web agency, I dabble with it myself but certainly it should be left in the hands of the experts with a computer science degree in their hands that eat, drink and sleep coding, it certainly is a science.

The digital world is the world we now live in and to understand the fundamentals of how these things work will need to become commonplace and soon.
