The world is changing

Why should you consider programming as your future job?

Is it really that hard?

In the times when more and more businesses is moving to the virtual world, a need for people who will actually do that transition and maintain virtual businesses is getting higher every day - meaning, programmers are in demand, more and more each day.

Lots jobs are getting obsolete - machines are taking over people’s jobs.

So, if you wanna be safe in the next 20 years or so(until machines learn how to maintain them selves 😄), you can do programming. It’s not really the rocket science.

In the text below, I will try to cover few topics, that most of the people are wandering about:

Are programmers geniuses?

I’ll take myself as an example. When I did the first programming test, in the first year of Computer Engineering, from maximum 100 points, I scored - what do you think?

minus 2 :)

I was a total programming failure(for some people) and they were telling me to consider switching to something else.

I didn’t, of course. I bought a book called C for dummies, and that’s how my love for programming started.

Programming takes time, and some brain of course, but if you’re willing enough to learn it, invest a few years of your time in it, it will be well worth the wait.

You should probably be good at math. Not every human should be a programmer.

Where/how to start?

The most important thing when starting to learn programming is to have a good mentor, or a teacher - someone who will point you in the right direction. Yes, you can learn to program just by googling, but I suggest you not to do it like that. Googling can be useful after you have a solid knowledge of programming. In fact, I google every day, lots of times…
