That’s a beautiful vision. A lot of people have advocated that code is the skill that everyone will need to learn to be functional in society, akin to how we now expect extremely high rates of literacy. My belief is that it’s something that a mature mind should tackle, and as long as it is associated with screens, potential tech addiction and unhealthy working lifestyles, it’s not the best direction for our kids. But as a single piece of what humanity has accomplished, I share your awe.
