  • In recent years, there's been a lot of hype around coding:

  • that it's an invaluable skill everyone should learn,

  • or that it's a field where there's a lot of money to be made.

  • And, while there are a lot of great reasons to learn to code, it might not be the best career choice for everyone.

  • In order to determine if coding is a good fit for you, you'll want to consider a number of different aspects.

  • One thing to think about is the job market:

  • there are a lot of jobs and freelance opportunities out there for programmers, and many of them pay well,

  • but there are also even more programmers seeking jobs.

  • Studies showed that there are 50% more people seeking employment than there are actual coding positions.

  • This means that simply knowing how to code isn't a surefire way to land a job:

  • employers are looking for the highest quality programmers out there.

  • Like any skill, coding takes dedication and patience to develop:

  • the more time you put into it, the better you'll become.

  • Learning your first coding language might prove to be a long and difficult process,

  • but the good news is that once you've learned one, others become easier to grasp.

  • As technology continues to evolve some new jobs are going to be created,

  • but some of today's jobs will also become obsolete.

  • Some argue that it might be a better investment to study growing fields, like AI and machine learning;

  • but, on the other hand, learning to code is a great way to gain an understanding of software from the bottom up,

  • and it can serve as a jumping off point if you want to move into those fields in the future.

  • So, should you learn to code?

  • There are a lot of opinions out there, but ultimately it's up to you.

  • If it seems like something you really enjoy and you're willing to put in the effort, go for it,

  • but if it's something you're on the fence about, you might want to keep looking.

  • There are a lot of other options out there, and you're bound to find something that's a better fit for you.
