NBA Superstar Chris Bosh: Here’s Why You Should Learn to Code
 
By Chris Bosh
 
I get it. There seems to be something silly about asking everyone — from the homeless to really young kids — to learn to code. There are deeper things that need to be fixed in the “system” too.
 
But I don’t think that means we should dismiss the value of learning to code.
 
Being a kid of the 1990s and living in a house run by tech-savvy parents, I began to notice that the world around me was spinning on an axis powered by varying patterns of 1s and 0s. We’d be fools to ignore the power of mastering the designing and coding of those patterns. If brute physical strength ran one era, and automation the next, this is the only way we can keep up. Most jobs of the future will be awarded to the ones who know how to code.

www.codecademy.com and www.w3schools.com are also pretty good websites to get started with coding

I definitely gained more respect for Chris Bosh after he said this:

 

I’m the Miami Heat player with “1” on my team jersey back. For me winning isn’t “winning” — it’s 01110111 01101001 01101110 01101110 01101001 01101110 01100111

 

;)

 

Seriously though, pretty interesting read.

on a serious note, coding isnt easy but it does help increase critical thinking skills and foresight

Yeah knew about this even when he was in Toronto. He's a very smart guy and a coder like I was.

Saw a video on him with Mark Zuckerburg promoting schools to teach programming. In todays world programming should be something that should be taught in high schools. Too many people view it as this impossible thing that only super smart people can do. It just takes a different way of thinking. Once you get that down its just syntax and experience.
