President Obama asks America to learn computer science


Hi everybody. This week I’m proud to join the students, teachers, businesses and non-profit organizations taking big new steps to support computer science in America’s schools. Learning these skills isn’t just important for your future, it’s important for our country’s future. If we want America to stay on the cutting edge, we need young Americans, like you, to master the tools and technology that will change the way we do just about everything. That’s why I’m asking you to get involved. Don’t just buy a new video game, make one. Don’t just download the latest app, help design it. Don’t just play on your phone, program it. No one’s born a computer scientist, but with a little hard work, and some math and science, just about anyone can become one. This week is your chance to give it a shot. And don’t let anyone tell you “you can’t.” Whether you’re a young man or a young woman, whether you live in a city or a rural area, computers are going to be a big part of your future. And if you’re willing to work and study hard, that future is yours to shape. Thanks everybody!

  1. hi Obama
    give me the green card and I will be the greatest computer scientist in US and the world. …
    ..and I will hack the Russian government website also:))

  2. sorry Obama, but I'm not good at compsci. dropping out of it next semester. studying in this major gave me depression, really bad anxiety attacks, and a really really bad temper. before doing this major i never had an issue with anger, now i do. I would spend hours, even days trying to get a project to work properly. in the end I would always fail them. it was a cycle of trying really hard, and failing really hard. all that time spent for naught. frustration is too real. here is a summary of my semester, picture a guy tightly wrapping my head with duck tape for a span of infinity.

  3. There is little to no hope in computer science for americans. Unless they want to go to a third world country and work from there… 😛

  4. Very true Americans especially young people wake up and see the world around you get educated and gain these computer skills as Obama is saying to
    Compete globally for a better future

  5. He mentioned Math and Science, but he neglected to add 'Design & Creativity' – without this your computer game, app, program, device, will be the 'same old thing' rather than 'the next big thing'.

  6. Whenever I want to learn to code I watch code.org videos.They are so motivating and like Steve Jobs said:Those who are crazy enough to think they will change the world are those who will do that.-Its someting like that but get the point.I like programing because my hero,my idol,my knight thats MY DAD 😀

  7. What a shithead. Free & pardon Bradley Manning & Edward Snowden for starters. Then we'll spend time & energy learning something incredibly hard, like computer science.

  8. Yeah, let's just forget to mention that all those jobs are being given away to other countries, and if you're an American and not good at customer service skills, your future is confined to services, or anything that does not involve contact with living people. Oh, and since we live in a Compensation Age, where everyone needs to be compensated because something happened to them, or they were offended, you better be good at your Political Correctness and kissing ass to customers and managers who are going to treat you like shit.

    Why? Because if you do something like people in Hillary's basket of deplorables would do, like thinking for yourself, having self-respect, dignity, or morals, you're in the wrong.

  9. Молодец. Хорошо сказал. А теперь выметайся из белого дома и чтобы мы тебя больше не видели!

  10. I really don't like Obama as a president but as a human being he's a great role model. Always good to hear something positive out of someone who's made it. Makes you want to do that same thing.

  11. The funny thing about all this "we all need to learn code movement" is that the real persons that are still ruling the world are not coders and scientist. The persons that rule the world are politicians (like OBAMA) i mean generally lawyers and bussiness man like trump. Smartest people only "work" for them but they are not changing a damm thing. That is why all this learn to code movement is bullshit. Also very few people can actually code at a profesional level. I would say most of us cant.

  12. Conceited stupid fascist turd. This evil cunt dropped a bomb for every 20 minutes of his presidency. He neither knows nor cares how many people he killed, but it's in the hundreds of thousands. And the thinks he's so clever and superior. Nauseating smug turd.

  13. O'Kenyan, you didn't build that! O'Jerk never built anything in his life. He is just another Leftist dictator wannabe. O'Jakazz needs a "MAGIC WAND" to help the USA. What a loser.

  14. This is great news for the journalist who were laid off at Gannett, BuzzFeed, and HuffPost. Share this with every out of work journalist you know, they’ll thank you.

  15. This needs to go into Twitter .. Imagine the NPC meltdown on this . It's Obama but he is telling to Learn to Code …must ban error.. cannot ban error

  16. Hey barry, apps have been designed. But that doesnt mean shit if the liberal pussies at apple refuse to put your app in their store for users to download.

  17. Why where you a president and not just once twice AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH YOU RUINED AMERICA I HOPE TRUMP WILL BE PRESIDENT AGAIM SO HE CAN FIX THIS BULLSHIT TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP!!

  18. If you didn't run from here when he was elected or committed fraud and pretended to be elected, it's probably too late for you. It's 2019 and place is done. Hope he enjoys the 10 trillion he stole. What to do? 1. Have no children here. 2. Leave the country. 3. Get used to maximum crime. 4. Trust no one. 5. Know they are all mentally ill. best wishes…
