Why you should learn to program

I just watched Christian Genco‘s 2012 talk at TEDxSMU titled “You Should Learn to Program“. It’s a fun 10 minute talk that highlights why it’s so awesome to learn to code.

You should watch this video, regardless of whether you can code or not. As an aside, Genco is a pretty interesting person to follow too.
