I've spent the last few months talking to others about why coding matters, and why mobile app development is so important. I truly believe that apps will be a means of communication and problem solving in the very near future.
This great article from EdSurge explains the big picture of why mobile really matters. As more people on the globe get connected to the internet for the first time, their experiences will be on mobile devices. I believe that the more diversity there is in people who understand how to code, the more significant the problems that can be solved with apps. Read for yourself and let me know what you think!
