the-benefits-of-learning-to-code-300x200 Coworking Space San DiegoAs technology becomes increasingly important in our lives, it’s essential that entrepreneurs have the skills necessary to set themselves apart in the workplace. One of the essential skills to have moving forward is the ability to code. No matter if you’re looking for an entry-level position or are a young entrepreneur or business owner looking to take your company to new heights, coding will be beneficial. Fortunately, it’s now easier than ever to gain coding skills. 

Career Flexibility 

Think back to your early years in school, when you began to read and write. These skills proved essential to your entire schooling and career. This is precisely the opportunity that coding provides. Code is the language in which technology is written. Examples include: 

  • Websites
  • Software
  • Apps 

Learning to read and write code opens up a world of opportunities. It can prove valuable no matter what industry of which you are a part. Practically every company today has a website, and more and more are developing applications for smartphones and tablets. So, just because you don’t see yourself in the tech industry doesn’t mean the skills you obtain while learning how to code won’t be beneficial at some point in your professional career. 

Career Earnings 

Having the ability to code could also increase your potential earnings. For instance, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said that the median income in 2016 was a little more than $37,000. However, the median salary for web developers was more than $66,000, while the wage for software developers was more than $102,000 per year.
