Hello there, it's your boy again, the quiet programmer, and today I’m going to be telling you Why learning how to code now meant be too late. And please make sure you read it to the end, or you can skip it to the end.
This may sound like a downer for many people who want to learn how to code and build things, but I’m not trying to stop you from learning how to code, I just want to tell you a few things and why you should have started learning a long time ago and not now.
Okay, why did I said this!!!
Learning how to code is not the problem and coding isn’t that hard if you really put your time into it and practice day and night, although it's not easy but you have to do it because you want to learn. But this article isn’t for people who want to learn how to code just to build things for themselves or just to get the basic knowledge of coding.
This article is for people who want to learn how to code because they want to work in the big tech industry. It's not that late to start now, but if you want still 2020 it meant to be too late that is why I’m dropping this article now.
Learning how to code now to start working for those big company is still a great idea but can you keep up with the big guys who are already up there and are working their brains out every day to learn new tech and to improve on their skills the more so they can get more bonuses to their paycheque? Well, if you think you can, then you can go ahead with coding, but you think you cannot don’t even try it. Because everything falls down to your mindset and how you set your goals.
Now they are building AI’s that will be able to read and understand our code and also help in fixing and writing of those codes. I know humans are the once who created these AI’s, but many tech companies and other big companies and industries out there won't need people who are learning how to code or junior developers any more to do little work for them at a low price, although they are going to buy this AI’s or Hire them at a very high price they are still going to be comfortable buying them, because they believe and know the AI’s will do a good job with little or no mistakes.
So what should I do?
Actually, you don’t get to do anything, although you can do something, which is to learn how to code and go into ML and AI, which are Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. Because these companies will be looking for people who are very good to maintain these machines. This is where you come in if you know you want to learn, learn to the core, do not learn to impress, this career choice is not for show as the old days.
Note: When wanting to learn any programming language, take a good look at the market and see which you are supposed to be learning and focus more on it. This will help you a lot.
