1. Job Opportunities
There has never been a better time to take up programming than now because there are numerous job opportunities everywhere. Now that the world is becoming a digital village, it needs people to move businesses and companies online. These people are the programmers and web developers. Every business wants to have a website today, an online portal and a mobile application to help reach its clients easily. The number of businesses in the world, is almost twenty times more than the number of competent programmers which leaves behind a very big void. The affinity for programmers is very high and landing a job opportunity will be the easiest thing. Take up programming today before every business moves online and the opportunities become limited.
2. Earn more but work fewer hours
Do you know that programmers working for big firms can make as much as $200,000 in a year? Did you know that you can become a millionaire in the world by learning code? What do you think made Bill Gates a millionaire? Zuckerberg of Facebook and many others are millionaires thanks to programming. The beauty about programming is that you can charge upto $100 an hour for contracts and companies will readily pay you because they are in need of your services. Who doesn’t want to make more while working for less hours?
3. Freedom of schedule
With programming, you can work at your own pace without anyone bothering you. When you work for yourself, you have that limited ability to create your own schedule. Whether it is your main career or a side hustle, you always have the freedom to choose when and where to work from. Programming offers flexibility of the highest order. You can choose to work from your office, your home or even at school. I personally started programming while I was in college and would always dedicate a few hours daily to code and in no time, I was making money while in school. You can also choose to work from your employers’ premises and still work at your own pace. In my ten years of programming, never have I been caught by time or failed a client. As much as I work at my own pace, I always ensure that I deliver quality work on time and impress my employers always.
4. A fun way of expressing yourself and making money
There is nothing more fun than programming. Programming offers the perfect platform to express yourself and explore ideas while making money from it. There are very few limitations to what you can achieve through code. As far as programming is concerned, only the sky is the limit. All those fantasies you had, can be explored and tried using code. You can get as creative and inject ingenuity even to clients’ work without veering off-course. The whole idea of programming is to channel your ideas and use the available resources to create solutions that will make the world a better place to live in.
5. Better resources available
