The following video opened my eyes to a new language–computer programming. Often referred to as coding, mastery of this language is in high demand. Actually, mastery is not even necessary, “being conversational” in the language of coding can open many doors. Simply put by Steve Jobs, “Everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer…because it teaches you how to think.”
I happened to be attending a counselor event at Catawba College, when I visited Dr. Pamela Thompson’s Management Information Systems class. She played this video for the students to emphasize the high-demand for proficient computer programmers and how valuable it is to learn a programming language regardless of what your profession ends up being. The video really speaks for itself, so enjoy watching!
