Coding

Have you seen the video from code.org? Kinda cool. So coding is cool now? Works for me. I’ve always really enjoyed programming. I miss it when I don’t get to do it much. But for the last decade, we’ve also tried to tell people that CS isn’t just coding. Which is true. It’s a misconception that studying CS or working in a CS-enabled career means doing nothing but coding. There is so much more to CS. But maybe we’ve over-reacted a bit here. Maybe we’ve gotten too close to apologizing for something that really is fun and worthwhile and important. I’m glad the guys at code.org are bringing coding back out of the closet!
