07/16/2019 - Why Everyone Should Learn to Code

Who makes the apps and software that you enjoy on your phone? Perhaps the young woman in the pew beside you on Sunday or the retired gentleman at the local coffee shop!  Writing apps and software involves coding. 

According to Techopedia, "Coding is the primary method for allowing intercommunication between humans and machines.  Early coding was done through physical punch cards and similar methods.  As digital computers were created, early programming languages like BASIC, FORTRAN and COBOL were used, each with its own syntax and operators.  In the personal computer and Internet age, developers and computer programmers typically produce code in modules that correspond to individual computing tasks. These modules are put together in a collective framework or project, such as an individual software application."

Some reasons why everyone should learn to code:

1) Coding can lead to software development jobs

2) It opens up other job opportunities

3) Coding can make your job application stand out
