Kids that code do not have a sure-thing future. However, over the past 15 years, parents have really pushed their kids to learn how to code. Unfortunately, parents who believe coding is the future are driving through the rearview mirror and asking the wrong questions. To summarize, some parents believe coding skills will lead their children to a secure future in the tech industry. In reality, kids who want a forever-career in technology need creative thinking with logic and linear algebra skills. Those skills are more important than coding because they will allow kids to adapt to future unknown tech needs.
