What is code? by Paul Ford Read HERE
Love these quotes:
"Code has been my life, and it has been your life, too. It is time to understand how it all works."
"The code is the art."
"Every day is Arbor Day in Codeville."
The whole article reminded me of one of my third grade students. A few years ago, when she first started coding, she was struck by the realization that if she understood how computers think, she can show them how she thinks.
