Until recently, the programming profession was associated with a dark clinic full of glasses in checkered shirts. Fortunately, this stereotype has become a thing of the past, and more and more people are interested in programming. This is a good thing, because it is slowly becoming an indispensable skill, just as much as knowledge of foreign languages.
Some of us still remember the times when letters were handwritten and important documents typed. Children spent a lot of time outside and adults were able to maintain international friendships without Facebook. However, the world is moving forward at a rather dizzying pace and in just two decades has changed beyond recognition.
New technologies and solutions grow literally like mushrooms after rain. From typewriter to smartphone, we've moved almost smoothly and people are increasingly losing themselves in virtual reality. Gadgets such as Google Glass, or augmented reality glasses, have appeared, and Airbus is just starting to test flying taxis. What happens next?
Change the industry or a robot will replace you
It is estimated that by 2035 a lot of work will be carried out by the works. What does that mean for an ordinary bread-eater? Job cuts and layoffs. What about the programmers? In short, more work.
The market is changing quite rapidly, but it can be noted that some trends are stable. In 2017, as in previous years, employers will look for programmers and database analysts, among others. What's more, everything points to the fact that the real boom of advertisements is yet to come.
Increasing digitisation is making more and more people decide to learn the basics of programming in order to understand the world around them and increase their attractiveness on the labour market.
No wonder that programming lessons have been taught in Polish schools. Coding not only develops the ability to think logically and analytically, but also creativity. Besides, the lack of computer skills is already compared to illiteracy, but in the future it will be possible to name anyone who will not be able to create even a few simple lines of code.
Languages of the future
Learning to code is often compared to learning a foreign language. There's something about it. Programming languages have their own syntax and rules to learn. Contrary to appearances, it is not so complicated and anyone can program it. That's why more and more people are trying their hand at learning from online tutorials or enrolling in intensive programming courses to learn the basics faster and more effectively.
A lot of people who attend our bootcamp courses are people who want to change their profession and start earning good money. However, there are also enthusiasts for whom programming is only a hobby, and during the course they can implement their own projects.
Regardless of your motivation - we encourage you to learn at least the basics of code writing! We assure you that such investments in your own development always pay off!
