In his article ‘Learn to Code, Get a Job’, Douglas Rushkoff compares the need to acquire coding skills to learning math and that learning code is beneficial for all to help understand the computers that have become an inescapable aspect of our daily lives.  He also references Blake Ellis at CNN Money whose article ‘Class of 2011 Scores Higher Paying Jobs’ addresses the point that having these skills will lead to securing jobs with higher salaries.
