Schoolkids learn coding at GCSE level in curriculum trial

I am genuinely irritated about this.

When I did my GCSEs way back in '03, we weren't even offered the option of IT. Nor were we at A level. I'm now on a software dev degree, and I'm struggling to keep up with the people 4 years younger than me who got to study it. It should have been part of the curriculum from the day they introduced computers in schools.

Black Ops is the best selling videogame EVER

I wonder

how many of those sales are attributed to people having to buy about 500 copies before they got a working one?
