Why It's Time You Learned to Code

By: David Yang

Code is the single most important “hard” skill for any employee to possess this decade.

Aside from learning computer programming for the popular economic reasons — a shortage of qualified workers, the projected growth of the industry, and an $80k+ average salary — the “Technology Industry” is about to become simply “Industry,” and that means coding will be applicable to most jobs in most lines of work

And as this century progresses, more job descriptions will begin listing programming under “required” instead of “desired” skills. This is because programming allows us to complete more tasks, faster, which makes companies money and increases competitiveness. Fullstack Academy graduates are trained to get jobs as professional software engineers at some of the nation’s most renowned tech firms, but even exposure to programming fundamentals will lead to improved professional outcomes.
