Nigeria’s Makinde Adeagbo, Bill Gates And Mark Zuckerberg In Short Film About Code [VIDEO]
Nigerian-born Makinde Adeagbo, an ex-Facebook software engineer has been featured in a short film about what most schools don’t teach: Code.
The 6-minute short film also starring Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey, among others wants you to learn about a new “superpower” that isn’t being taught in most schools around the world, especially in U.S schools.
All of these creators believe that “every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn to code”, and want you to support Code.org, a non-profit foundation dedicated to growing computer programming education.
“A lot of the coding that people do is fairly simple”, says Makinde Adeagbo in the short clip.
He left Facebook in January 2011 to join Dropbox.
