Please don’t advocate learning to code just for the sake of learning how to code. Or worse, because of the fat paychecks. Instead, I humbly suggest that we spend our time learning how to …
- Research voraciously, and understand how the things around us work at a basic level.
- Communicate effectively with other human beings.
These are skills that extend far beyond mere coding and will help you in every aspect of your life.
+1 for Research and communicate; it’s astonishing the number of people who *still* ask “How do you know that…” It is as if they never heard of Google, and they never learn anything interesting… because they spend their life just watching reality TV.
