Kids should learn how to code because it empowers them, is easy to learn, and because programmers will be in demand in the future, a new infographic suggests.
When those kids grow up, they may have an easier time finding a career if they want to be a programmer, as programming will be one of the fastest-growing professions over the next decade, according to the infographic.
The infographic also spotlights Estonia, where schoolchildren are learning to code at a young age. The country, incidentally, is the birthplace of voice-over-IP and instant messaging service Skype, home to one of the first e-enabled governments, and the first European country with DSL in every school.
