Why Learn To Code?

Catherina Fisher

Why do we need to see the world differently? Well, because the problems that we face as a society are increasingly complex.

    I've been learning (slowly) how to code, but I've been wondering if just knowing a little is that useful. I'm never going to make a career out of it, but it seems like such a valuable skill. I guess I'm wondering if anyone else out there know a little bit but it's been really valuable
