A New Literacy

“Someone learning to program is learning a new literacy – new and creative ways to express ideas and concepts, to simulate models in the process of solving problems, and to explain or explore processes and phenomena.

“Programming teaches and strengthens creativity, logical thinking, perseverance, collaboration, problem-solving, and other important life skills. Knowing how to program makes anyone in any profession more effective, efficient, and innovative in their own field.”

Mr. Mark speaks to the powerful, lifelong benefits of learning programming skills.
