• Ashton Kutcher – You Geek!

    Posted By Adnan Coup: Can you code? Do you even know what code is? Mark and some other well-known mates of his such as Ashton, Bill, Will and Jack (to name a few) are supporting code.org. A new programme aimed to get kids in school to learn how to code. At code.org you can support their mission of “Every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn to code” [does that mission statement remind you of something Bill said way, way back?] by signing your name and also donating. The donate form appears on all pages at the bottom aside from the home page, good to see that for once an ethical site knows about conversion. Though with people like Bill and Mark waving the banner for this it would be odd if the site did not the correct form and structure. 

    Do you think this is a great idea? We think so, though it would be nice to see how much money people like Bill, Mark and Richard have donated toward this too. Below is the video promoting this project and we have pulled out some of the quotes from code.org by world leaders and industry titans that are supporting this; for some inspiration. It’s no surprise that Ashton Kutcher is supporting this; after all, he is Bill Gates.

    “I'd like to advocate for computer coding to be an institution in the public school systems right next to biology, chemistry, physics, etc. If we want to spur job growth in the US we have to educate ourselves in the disciplines where jobs are available and where economic growth is feasible.

    “Whether you want to uncover the secrets of the universe, or you just want to pursue a career in the 21st century, basic computer programming is an essential skill to learn. “

    “Learning to code will be a huge booster for your future, no matter what your professional plans may be. Learning to code will also make you extremely cool! “
