I mean, let's be honest: why spend years studying then learning how to code and make programs that work really well, when all you need is a few hours' practice using an icon editor?
That's not what the man said; but since most kids will not be coding, it seems a bit over the top to teach them all how to code.

The argument that the code will be "different" is utter nonsense ofcourse; principles will stay the same, as well architecture and environment. You can't expect us to work with the same language for 40 years - if they want to go into IT, they'll have to get used to learning for the rest of their life.
