Apple CEO, Tim Cook visited an Apple Store in Orlando, Florida, Last week, To meet 16-year-old Liam Rosenfeld, One of 350 scholarship winners who will be attending Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) next month.
Mr.Cook told TechCrunch’s Matthew Panzarino it is “pretty impressive” what Rosenfeld is obtaining with coding in this young age, Serving as an ideal instance of why he believes coding instruction should begin at the early grades of school.
“I don’t think a four-year degree is essential to be proficient at coding,” Cook claims. “I think that is an old, Traditional view. What we discovered is that if we could get coding at the first grades and have a progression of difficulty over the tenure of a person’s high school years, By the time you graduate children like Liam, as an example of this, They are already writing apps that could be put on the App Store.”
Many companies have not embraced technological advancements and still using old technologies, according to Cook but with more options from SAP and Apple, and tech-savvy workers of the future like Rosenfeld, that can change, the report mentioned Apple CEO as saying.
Tim Cook said: “I think what it is is they haven’t embraced mobility. They haven’t embraced machine learning. They haven’t embraced AR. All of this stuff is a bit foreign in some way. They’re still fixing employees to a desk. That’s not the modern workplace. People that graduate from high school and get a little experience under their belt can do quite well in this job.”
