It's good for you

Learn to code because it’s good for you.

Everyone - can we PLEASE STOP advertising coding this way. The slogan “because it’s good for you” didn’t work for broccoli, and it’s not going to work for code.

Nobody eats broccoli because “it’s good for you”. Nobody is going to become a software engineer because “it’s good for you”. Nobody does ANYTHING because “it’s good for you”.

Instead, let’s show people the joy of coding. Let’s show them how much cool stuff they can build. Let’s share our passion for software.

Don’t code because it’s “good for you”. Learn to code because it’s fun.
