As you may know I work in IT and Code everyday its not my primary Role.
This Video is just BS Coding is no more important than English Math Science and PE. but the most important skill is read books read people read. Coding certainly helps with Logic skills troubleshooting, testing, but that’s about it. Its a social disaster coders generally become socially struck down. Its boring! coding read the dictionary in Spanish 5 hours a day there’s Coding.
This is way over glamourised.
Into every life a little hyperbole must fall.

I am a Systems Administrator. More specifically Enterprise Systems Administrator. which like Coding is not the most glamorous job.
