Why learn programming?
The need for an understanding of how computers function to be a highly valuable member of today’s society is only going to further increase! We have made our lives so dependant on computers, you owe it to yourself to know what’s going on - where the risks are. Programming develops great thinking skills that will be invaluable whether you choose to code or not… GROW YOUR BRAIN! Also... It’s just great nerdy fun!!!
