They know how to search for view their favorite songs and how to become top in the game they play.
Well we don’t want to burden a 2-3 year child with coding .But just imagine the case of the child in the age group of 10-16 Years.
They know things that you can’t imagine to learn at the age of 25 or say 30 Years in the last decade.
Students know all the different types of apps and their uses. They are well aware of the social networking sites. Children in the age group of 10-16 even know how to work with videos and images and edit them nicely.

If they can learn so many things about the computers , mobile apps , websites then why can’t they learn coding ?.
Well we think coding for kids is of same importance as learning maths , English or grammar.
Even if your kids don’t become a mathematician or English teacher still you teach them , its being going on every where. Because its required in day to day life.
In Similar fashion , you need to teach coding to your kids , school and college going students now matter what they are studying.

We agree with you , but even now does every finance professional is doing some or other software to do his work. They might be using excel sheet , tally or sap or may be his own customized software.
but what if he knows programming.
