More on the future of work... "don't learn to code"

Not sure I agree with this entirely as learning to code is also developing a framework for problem solving, but I can't fault their approach (99u via Lifehacker):

If becoming a programmer is appealing to you, great. But seeking employment based on any one "hard skill" is an outdated way of thinking. The rapid evolution of technology forces us to constantly reconsider which hard skills are in demand. (And we should). Staying on top of the hard skills needed is a necessity in the short term, but one of the best ways to position yourself for success in the long term is to focus on the soft skills needed no matter what technology you are working with.
