This video from code.org has brought back so many memories of my journey to becoming a coder. To make a long story short coming from the caribbean, coding was basically a skill that only the elite of the elite had on the humble island of Antigua. However, with the power of the internet I was basically able to self teach myself how to code in my first language of PHP. I would never forget the day that I actually installed it correctly and showed the phpinfo() output to the browser screen. From that day on my world changed forever.
I credit code.org for making this video because what coding teaches you is how to solve problems even real world problems. Problems that you face on a day to day basis. Problems that the world faces. I believe that with technology we can eradicate poverty, end world hunger, end unnecessary violence the list goes on. I know its a tall order but lets begin with this statement:
—- code begins —-
public object DoSomethingGoodOneDayAtATime();
—– code ends —–
We just need to define more of this structure.
