Mark Zuckerberg says video games can help kids become programmers
Mark Zuckerberg credits video games with getting him into programming, and he thinks they could help others kids, too. Last week, the Facebook CEO held a town hall Q&A at the company’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California, where he fielded questions on Oculus Rift, moderating hate speech, and his birthday celebration. When asked about his favorite video game (Civilization), Zuckerberg described how being exposed to games at an early age encouraged him to experiment with technology.
“I made a lot of games for myself, and they were terrible,” Zuckerberg said of his childhood experience with gaming. “But this was how I got into programming.”
