Learn how to code

Code is the language used to write computer programs, apps and websites. It’s the foundation of the internet, and any piece of software you have ever used starts off with code.

If you know how to code, then you have the ability to create your own software – whether its to be used in a gadget, a website or an app for a smartphone.

Technology is increasingly becoming part of our lives, which means code is becoming part of our lives – whether we understand it or not. Knowing how to code will give you more control of your destiny and how you interact with the world. When you know how to code, you can come up with an idea and actually take action by creating something that will be useful not only for you, but possibly millions of other people too.

 

Rather than relying on (& paying for) someone else’s software – you can create your own solutions, and take advantage of the power of computing. So much of the modern world is built upon code. Having the knowledge to code means you have the ability to develop your own creative ideas or to start your own business. Coding is an in demand skill – many programs can earn a lot of money.
