The Importance of Programming
Learning to develop software and build electronic machines can seem like an overwhelming task – but with an enormous global increase in demand, developing skills in this key industry is vital to our future generations.
While many view programming and electronics in its scientific context, it is also one of the most useful tools for the creative and industrious. Once the concepts are learnt, one is limited only by imagination. Everything from the convenience of climate controlled homes to the life saving machinery used in our hospitals was created by programmers and electronic engineers. The solutions to many problems involving the environment, food security, healthcare and transport can be found with creative thinkers using the right technology.
Both Forbes and CNBC list Software Development / Programming as the number 1 most in demand skill required by employers in the world today. There are simply not enough people with the required skills to meet the demand. Hopefully we can help fill that gap.
