The World's Greatest Threat..... Hackers
It may seem like it now but in the near future once everyone begins to realize how dependent the world is on technology, they will also find out how powerful hackers truly are. Code is basically another language so to non-programmers everything looks like something from another planet. But to the actual programmers a few clicks and edits here and there and the entire program could become something totally different. The thing about hackers is they don't always need to change the code of a program to get what they want, they could just create a program from scratch that does the dirty work for them.
All of this uproar just from a teenager tweeting some code that was less than 160 characters. Like I said, once technology is in full effect and runs your everyday life I think everyone NEEDS to learn some programming skills, for their own safety.
