Learn To Code, It's More Important Than English as a Second Language, Says Apple CEO
Apple CEO Tim Cook says it is more important to learn how to code than it is to learn English as a second language. From a report: The tech executive made the remarks to French outlet Konbini while in the country for a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron, who has called for tech companies to pay higher taxes in Europe. 'If I were a French student and I were 10 years old, I think it would be more important for me to learn coding than English. I'm not telling people not to learn English in some form -- but I think you understand what I am saying is that this is a language that you can [use to] express yourself to 7 billion people in the world,' Cook tells Konbini. 'I think that coding should be required in every public school in the world. It's the language that everyone needs, and not just for the computer scientists. It's for all of us.'
