Coding - The New Language of Business

Categorized under: predictions

Throughout history, language and communication are what has helped separate human beings from other creatures. It is our ability to communicate that has enabled us to design, develop, and launch amazing inventions.

Yet, there is one language that isn't widely available for study. That language is coding.

Over the next several years, we are hopeful that coding/programming will be introduced into more schools; especially during the formative years (K-8th grade). Not only will this help kids better compete in tomorrow's economy but it will also enable them to gain a better appreciation for the technology enabled world around them.

It is hard to find an industry, business, service, or activity that is not touched by technology in some way shape or form. 

We are looking forward to a future when all kids not only consume digital content but also understand how to create it.
