A few months ago I taught my mom to code. Not to be a coder, but to understand a little about the profession. I teach myself a little about plumbing, so that I know when I should and should not ask for a plumber. It also helps me be a little more critical about materials, water usage, etc. The same goes for my mom, who now understands just a little more of what programmers do and what is possible with numbers for her classroom grades (she's an elementary school teacher). It's an enigmatic field for most of the world, and I think this initiative is not to make coders, but to make the world more understanding of what we do.
