QUOTES and AMAZING PERSPECTIVE:

Jeff Wilke:  SVP Consumer Business, Amazon.com

Coders change the world. They build new, amazing things faster than ever before. Anyone with imagination can learn to write code.

Tim O’Reilly;  Founder, O’Reilly Media

Programming is how we talk to the machines that are increasingly woven into our lives. If you aren’t a programmer, you’re like one of the unlettered people of the Middle Ages who were told what to think by the literate priesthood. We had a Renaissance when more people could read and write; we’ll have another one when everyone programs.

Dick Costolo;  CEO, Twitter

If you can program a computer, you can achieve your dreams. A computer doesn’t care about your family background, your gender, just that you know how to code. But we’re only teaching it in a small handful of schools, why?
