"I think everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer - because it teaches you how to think." --Steve Jobs
That's the introduction to a new video and a new organization, Code.org which describes itself as being a non-profit organization "devoted to the vision that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn how to code. We believe computer programming should be part of the core curriculum in education, alongside other science and math courses such as biology, chemistry and algebra."
Code.org is headed up by Hadi and Ali Partovi, who were early investors Facebook, Dropbox and Zappos.
The video stars Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, will.i.am, Chris Bosh, Jack Dorsey, Tony Hsieh, Drew Houston, Gabe Newell, Ruchi Sanghvi, Elena Silenok, Vanessa Hurst, and Hadi Partovi talking up the value of learning to code.
