As technology grows, the need for specialized skills increases. For example, in the state of Utah, there are more technology jobs available than there are employees to fill them.1 Programmers, engineers, and designers are always in demand (and are often known to receive rather handsome paychecks, we might add.)2,3,4 In technology, there will always be work!
In many ways coding is like a spoken language and a new way of thinking. So the earlier a person starts, the more likely the skills of programming will be solidified and honed. It is never too early to code!
Not at all! There are many incredible female coders. From programming video games to advancing computer technology, look to Rebecca Heineman, Grace Hopper, Marlyn Meltzer, Betty Holberton and many others for inspiration! Girls and boys can both do a fantastic job at coding. You can too!
