“Once a new technology rolls over you, if you’re not part of the steamroller, you’re part of the road.” — Stewart Brand
Coding is the new literacy. Like reading was in the 12th century, writing was in the 16th century, arithmetic was in the 18th century, and driving a car was in the 20th century.

A ship in port is safe, but that is not what ships are for. Sail out to sea and do new things. — Grace Hopper
There’s a growing sentiment among educators and cognitive scientists that any able-minded person can learn to code — just like you can learn to read, write, do arithmetic, or drive a car.
Learn to code. Learn to talk to machines. And flourish.
