CTTechJunkie’s Lon Seidman was a guest on WNPR’s Where We Live to discuss “coding literacy” in the wake of Healthcare.gov’s ongoing issues.

Joining Seidman as a guest on the show were Mark Lassoff, Founder of Learntoprogram.tv, who talked about the many different program lanugages in use today.

Wired contributor Brendan Koerner talked about his recent opinion piece suggesting that teaching kids to program computers might be more important than foreign language and music. And Diana LeRoi-Schmidt, art director for Danbury advertising firm Cierant, talked about coding opportunities for women in what was once a male dominated field.
