Some of the world’s most popular inventors and entrepreneurs including, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, will.i.am, Chris Bosh, Jack Dorsey and many more have teamed up to tell kids about “about a new superpower”  that “most schools don’t teach”.

In this video released by Code.org, these famous people discusses about why it’s important for kids, teens and everyone to learn coding. And they also talks about how  they started coding as well.

“I started off because I wanted to do this one simple thing. I wanted to make something fun for myself, and my sister. “ Founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg explains in the video along with many other amazing people.

I was about 16 when I first touched a computer. It took me a long time before I get the hang of all these latest technologies. Since there’s not so many facilities in my country, I’m taking coding lessons online, right now. It was frustrating and pretty hard at first, but trust me, it gets really fun when you take few steps ahead.

This video is very inspiring. And I think if you watch it, you could get inspired too. So, go ahead, watch it and start coding today.
