Chris Bosh Attempts to Make Computer Coding Cool With Will.I.Am and Mark Zuckerberg
Four years after the worst of the recession, finding a job is still a living hell, but your chances tend to be a lot better when you know how to do computer coding. So, in an effort to make sure more than 1,000,000 American jobs don't go unfilled because no one has the skills to do them, a team of super geeks and, of all people, Chris Bosh have teamed up to push a computer coding career as super cool.
Bosh only attended Georgia Tech for a single year before jetting to the NBA, but during his time there he studied graphic design and computer imaging and took computer coding classes.
"When I was in school I was in this after school group called the Whiz Kids, and when people found out they laughed at me and all these things, and I'm like, 'I don't care. I think it's cool, and I'm learning a lot and some of my friends have jobs," says Bosh with one of his trademark cheeky facial expressions.
Bosh, by the way, promises to complete his college career someday in the future.
So, anyway, good job Boshy for adding some cool points to a career that doesn't seem so cool but is necessary to America's continued economic dominance of the world and what not. We'd thank Will.I.Am for the same thing, but is there anyone left under the age of 50 who thinks he's cool anymore?
