The modern world is powered by software, hardware, and web / smart phone applications, but the number of schools that teach coding are too few. A very basic understanding of computer programming can help people no matter what industry they are in. Software and technology that requires coding is involved in every major industry in the world today – from marketing, to finance, to even agriculture.
The perpetual myth that coding requires intelligence is an absolute fabrication. Anybody can learn the basics of coding with some basic math skills and the ability to read resources when a problem arises. Many of the richest and most successful people in the world started off coding with the most basic of programs. It is a shame most schools don’t teach coding, but with resources so readily available on the internet, the schools will not hold you back.
