Coding isn’t some niche skill. It really is “the new literacy.”

Key Points:

  • The nature of work has fundamentally changed.  Today, it is no longer humans who do most of the work — it’s machines.
  • Think about it — every day, humans make 3.5 billion Google searches. It’s machines that carry out that work — not humans.
  • But machines are only able to do all this work because humans tell them exactly what to do. And the only way for humans to do this is by writing software.
  • You can’t stop technology. You can only adapt to it.
  • Learn to code. Learn to talk to machines. And flourish.
