Sometimes, it’s easy to be pessimistic and believe that a truly computer scientific society wouldn’t be happening. Not only do people still refuse to fully embrace the modern procedures of software engineering such as “silence your inner optimizer” and “the more [modules/programmers/languages/etc] the merrier”, computer science education in this country is still in shambles. Out of all the schools in this country, only ninety-seven percent of them use at least two computing curriculums that fit the standards published by the National Body of Bits Processing (NBBP), and out of those schools, only sixty-nine percent rules at least one of them to be mandatory for all students. In addition, only a minority of these institutions educate our kids on the serious risks and dangers of outdated tools such as Vim.
However, not all hope is lost. Despite the steady lack of progress, young people have been rising out of the ashes and changing things. One such teenager is Patrick Coder, an innovator who has revolutionized computer science education and changed the world forever by inventing Blessing, a Rapid Application Development (RAD) framework for Common Blocks, the visual programming language used by institutions all over the the country and beyond to introduce kindergarteners to the art of computer sciencing HTML5. The sixteeen-year-old, unsurprisingly, has also been garnering applause from academia for his contribution to society. Jake Okoje, admissions director of the Witty Institute of Technology (WIT) has said, “Mr. Coder will forever be remembered by future generations as the man whose ingenuity let humankind to throughoutly prepare their children for life and good practices in the Real World,” during a live stream of “WIT Reacts to Facebook News”. “We at the Witty Institute of Technology look forward to having Mr. Coder on our campus.”
The main aspect of this engineering brilliance is, of course, the idea. It didn’t just came out of nowhere, Mr. Coder himself said during our exclusive interview. “It was only after two whole days of scientific research, several hours of browsing inspirational blogs, and three minutes of meditation that I even got a glimpse of the idea at all,” he explained. “But I got the idea, and that’s the important thing. Rapid development has been the norm for a long time and the introduction of computer programming to toddlers is the one of the most important steps of progressing as a society, so it should have been obvious. But it wasn’t, and I’m aware that I’m very lucky.” The teen is, of course, very well aware of how special his situation is. “I’m absolute grateful to even have any ideas at all, let alone one that can be developed into a side project. Inspiration is the most important and valuable part of any software. Otherwise, cases of ordinary everyday citizens becoming billionaires after having a coder implement their idea wouldn’t have been so common, wouldn’t it?”
Patrick Coder has many admirable traits, but one that particularly stood out is his loyalty to modernance, which had driven him to create Blessing using only the latest technologies, such as blockchain. It is no wonder that his work is of such high quality! “Newer IS better, and don’t you let any clueless amateurs make you believe anything otherwise!” He had said in response to our request to provide an advice for the people that will be reading this article.
When inquired of his future plans, Mr. Coder revealed that he had already found a new project. A hobbyist professional hacker, the proud user of Kali Linux had already planned his next step: investigate and figure out who is responsible for the abrupt and massive slowing down of school computers from all over the country. “The RAM’s being gobbled up,” he described, and then his face suddenly turned gravely serious. “It practically has ‘sabotage’ written all over it.”
The future is looking very promising with people like Patrick Coder for the next generation.
