Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and Jack Dorsey Release Short Movie About The Importance Of Learning How To Program

Bill Gates (Microsoft chairman), Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook CEO), and Jack Dorsey (Twitter CEO/Square CEO) has made a short video about a nonprofit focused on making programming classes more widely available in schools.  The video promotes the non-profit Codes.org, an organization founded by Hadi Partovi.  Only a few schools offer programming classes and this organization aims to fix this issue.  

“It’s really not unlike playing an instrument or playing a sport,” stated Dropbox CEO and co-founder Drew Houston in the video. “It starts out being very intimidating but you kind of get the hang of it over time.”  The video also features Miami Heat basketball player Chris Bosh and Will.i.am (Black Eyed Peas singer).  You will see some other recognizable folks in the video below:
