100% agreed! We tried to fix this in my coding school. We asked "how can we solve REAL problems while learning", by always stating the problem/pain first, and leading the student toward creating a solution. And also "how can we make this look insanely cool", like when we taught them how to recreate Mondrian's paintings with CSS, or create a wedding website that they could share with friends. We started with front end topics because we could make it look cool a lot easier than back end.

So yeah, I agree that this aspect is very important when teaching, and I mean not just coding, but anything.
