Tech Education Boosts Salaries – But for How Long

I have not refrained from comment about the upsurge in coding startups attracting large amounts of funding and also media coverage.

My ambivalent feelings toward this movement were supported by the, in my opinion, misleading underlying message in that infamous code.org video that people’s lives will inevitably become better when they know how to program.

Now, as I stated at various occasions, I am certainly not against kids and for that matter adults as well learning about the principles behind programming and also practical coding skills – if done right. Quite the contrary, I think knowledge about programming is going to be seen as a basic skill in our resumes, everybody will simply to have it. In my opinion, it will be seen similar to people today who don’t have computer skills or a driver’s license – to disqualify for certain (many) jobs.
