In short, now is a great time to start your career in coding! There is any number of resources available to you online, but first, you need to pick a discipline.
Step One: Choose Your Discipline
Step Two: Study the Language
The next step is to learn the language. Depending on where your focus will be, you can get a head start by studying the language. For example, if you want to write websites, it’s a pretty safe bet to begin learning HTML.
Step Three: Find Your Resources
If you’re lucky enough to still be in school or going back to school, this step is already done for you. You can choose classes for basic skills, specific disciplines, or advanced code writing. Your path will probably be spelled out for you.
There are YouTube channels, books, podcasts, forums, and even online games dedicated to teaching coding basics to beginners and excerpts alike, so no matter where you want to start, there’s a resource for you.
Once you have a working knowledge, you can start playing around with writing your own code for personal projects like apps and websites, which can help you offer examples to future employers, class projects, or just for fun.
If coding sounds like something you might be interested in, you can open yourself up to jobs like Computer Programming, Web Development, Computer Systems Analyst, or Back End Development, which can pay anywhere from $40,000 to $100,000 annually! Or maybe you’re looking to build your skills to help you in your current job. Maybe you just miss the good old days of writing your own HTML code for the perfect Myspace layout. Either way, coding can be a valuable tool in your career arsenal.
So if you think coding may be the path for you, do some research, explore some resources, and have some fun with it! Don’t forget to check out the Microsoft Linked In learning courses, and let us know how it goes! You never know, Wisper might be hiring!
