The crash course in coding is pretty cool. We saw the “graduation” of more than two dozen old and young coders a few months ago. Watching the presentations we found it almost impossible to believe the zero-to-hero transformation these folks had achieved. Sally Kingston and her gang here in Charleston deserve a lot of credit – or a beer if you run into them out on the town.
If we choose to forget or ignore the lessons of Detroit… If we fail to offer incentives for entrepreneurs and emerging tech companies… If we simply rely on what has been instead of what is to come… The fall will be quick, merciless and perhaps fatal.
