AGone are the days when programming was reserved for large corporations or universities, only to be studied by engineers. The necessity to code has quickly crept into every industry. Whether working for a marketing team, a medical facility, or a mom-and-pop shop, automation and web development is the future, whether one likes it or not. It's best to be ahead of the curve before the technology passes you by.

ABy learning to code, people open up a lot of opportunities in a field that is still one of the most in demand. They are also better able to take control of their online presence, both personally and for their company. Once someone learns to code, they can imagine what they want to happen on the screen and they will have the skills to make it happen.
