Now, less than 2.4 percent of students graduate with degrees in computer science. If current job trends continue, U.S. citizens will only fill 30 percent of our country’s computer science jobs. There are some major news and developments in the world of coding. U.S. Representative Tony Cardenas has introduced a new bill that, if passed, will classify computer programming as a foreign language and allocate grants for schools to teach coding as early as kindergarten. There’s no better time to learn about the fundamentals of coding than in childhood. England will implement computer coding as a compulsory school subject at all grade levels starting in September 2014.
