Apple CEO Tim Cook and Malala Yousafzai Talk Coding, Activism and More

Apple CEO Tim Cook and Malala Yousafzai recently sat down for an interview as part of British Vogue's Conversation series, where the two talked about life after COVID, Yousafzai's and Apple's activism, the importance of education and learning to code, and more.


Apple has partnered with the Malala Fund to support girls' education, helping the organization by assisting with technology, curriculum, and research into policy changes needed to help girls everywhere attend school and complete their education, and this partnership is a key point in the interview.

The two also discuss Yousafzai's multiyear Apple TV+ partnership, which will involve inspiring dramas, comedies, documentaries, animation, and children's shows, as well as Yousafzai's personal efforts to learn to code. "Everyone should learn to code," said Cook. "It's the only global language."

The full interview can be watched on YouTube.

I mean I know its part of coding but I always thought Math was the only global language? Or is that universal language?

You could say that coding is his job (or at least part of it)
I doubt he even knows how to write a hello world in swift.

I mean did he ever code anyway?

Part of the reason why Tim Cook is pushing coding is that there should be more developers on the market to drive down the salary. Which is getting a little out of hand in the US, especially in Silicon Valley.
This is the real motivation, to make coding a commodity so cost can be even lower for these trillion dollar companies. Unfortunately too many people think it’s the “best” thing for them and their children.

Coding farms are already cheap enough in large populated countries like China and India. Ever wonder why there are so many mobile games that work or feel similar? Most of them are coded from the same outsourced coding farm.

Don’t think he does much of it these days, though.

Very interesting. But I swear it’s the weirdest framing that I’ve seen in a TV interview
