In many places it's becoming a standard subject taught in schools, and it's estimated that by 2020, the number of computer specialist job openings will have exploded!  Here are four reasons why coding is so cool (though we could go on forever...)

What’s more fun than playing a computer game? Actually making a computer game you and your friends can play. Check out this one from Computer Coding Games For Kids.

 

2. Everyone from rock stars to professional athletes are learning coding
