If you plan to sell an Item with embed software,
IMHO, you had best know at least how to read that code.
That's not programing, but when there is a depute that you
need to get involved in over some code issue You
Had better know what is going on.
I do have mod points, and would have given you an off topic mark, but I do agree that people need logic.
And I do agree that Coding is Logical Thinking.
You do not need to program in 'C', but it is not a bad place to start. Logo (turtle) might be more fun.
My last boss thought a few lines in a spread sheet
was his clam to fame in coding. But I say no, he lacked basic logic skills to boot. I got the #*!! out of there, I am retired now.
Some where in this thread someone asked
how much of society needs logic. I would hope all of the
voting population has good logic skills. Also voters need a good science background so they can see throw
the smoke and mirrors the people that would run a muck just to make a dollar.
