Learning Programming:

The current generation of children will require to be literate in technology to be competitive in the future job market. Not knowing how to code will be comparable to not learning how to read. Most jobs require the knowledge of necessary IT skills, while even retail and fast food jobs require technology and computers. Coding specialists are well-paid and highly sought-after in the current market, and opportunities for these skilled employees will expand in the future.Many of our ideas are wild dreams that aren’t acted upon because we don’t understand the limitations or capabilities of the tools available to us. Understanding how to build a website or develop a program goes a long way towards achieving those dreams.
