The superpower of coding

How many languages should our kids learn? 

This is how Mitch from Six Pixels of Separation starts his recommendation for the video below.
Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, will.i.am, Chris Bosh, Jack Dorsey, Tony Hsieh, Drew Houston, Gabe Newell are advocating for learning the language of code and code.org is the platform they are all supporting.

The Black Eyed Peas' Will.i.am says: "not teaching your kid to code - in this day and age - is the equivalent of not teaching them to read and write"

If you are not interested in kids nor coding maybe you would like to see some awesome offices. This is just my way of convincing you to watch this cause I think it's really great. Powerful and inspiring. You can find the shorter version, 1 minute only, here .

"The programmers of tomorrow are the wizards of the future. You're going to look like you have magic powers compared to everybody else." -Gabe Newell

"Great coders are today's rock stars. That's it!" - Will.i.am

Enjoy and let me know what you think.

A joy a day keeps the doctor away!
