Codecademy Chief Says Computer Programming Holds the Key - WSJ.com

Excerpt from a Codeacademy snapshot/profile
"As chief executive of Codecademy, a two-year-old company that offers free, online instruction in computer programming, Mr. Sims believes that programming skills can be a ticket to upward mobility just as a college degree has been for generations.
Lots of people seem to agree: 24 million unique users had signed on for courses on Codecademy's platform by December, compared with eight million as of a year earlier. And the learn-to-code movement has gone global, with celebrities like Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh and nonprofits such as Girls Who Code and Code.org urging people of all ages to become fluent in JavaScript, HTML, Python and other computer languages."
