Coding is a very new idea for me. In fact, I have never practiced coding on purpose and it is actually very interesting. I have never really had any need to practice coding and to understand it.
Living in the world and age of today and entering the future, learing coding and computer programing is very necessary. Today, we use technology for almost anything and everything, including banking, school, and even grocery shopping. Understanding how to complete computer programming will allow children to understand how to use computers easier and faster, with much more confidence.
Charita, the Creative Producer at Walt Disney, explained very well how she and her team are constantly searching for newer and more interesting technological ways to entertain at the major theme parks. She mentions that technology is at the heart of all of the amusement rides and entertainment. Falling behind the technological wave will keep you in the dark about the future and essentially, you will not survive in the new world of technology that is to come.
Coding, to many, is an intimidating topic. For myself, I was very nervous about even thinking about it. Once you get your feet wet, you will understand the art of coding and it will even begin to seem as a fun task. It takes practice and the action of understanding what it is and how it is used before fluently completing tasks.
