If you want to work forever and be sought out, one of the best fields to be in is internet coding. Nothing gets done online without a coder who is organizing the back end of whatever project you or the team are working on. If you love the internet learning how to code can be a huge help to you.
If you love the internet and would love to make a lot of money online, being a coder could be right up your alley. Surveys were sent to many people asking what they have the most interest in. Coding was the number 1 response.
There are 3 ways to get into coding and each way has pros and cons. I will discuss these choices here and you can see the video below which will also explain the ways to get into coding.
1. Get A Bachelors In Computer Science
Many, many companies are still a little bit old school and are looking for people to work with them that have a degree as it makes the company feel more secure
You get a huge network of people that you will meet where you can help each other for many years in this field
It will take the most time to achieve. Usually, around 2 years to finish
It is by far the most expensive way to reach your goal is paying for school, especially if you have to go away to the school of your choice.
2. Go To A Bootcamp
You will be guided into learning as much as you can very fast, and the teachers are usually very hands-on and have real-world experience.
Class sizes are tiny, which will allow a beginning of the students getting to know each other well and be able to use each other for many years after the Bootcamp is over.
Much more practical knowledge will be taught where you will be able to apply what you’ve learned right away
The upfront cost is large. Can be anywhere from $5,000-$20,000. Although this is less expensive than getting a bachelors degree over four years. They are usually finished in 2-3 months.
Bootcamps are not certified so you have to do your homework when deciding which one you will choose
You have to drop almost everything you are doing as Bootcamp is long hours in a short period of time.
3. Be Self Taught
The cost is free or very close to free, which makes it risk-free if you decide it may not be for you.
If you are passionate about tech/programming and self-motivated, this can be a great way to teach yourself.
Once you finish your learning, never stops as you will constantly be learning as you are self-taught.
There is no structure to your learning, so if you are not self-motivated, you may lose interest along the way.
This can be the slowest way to a high paying job as you are doing it yourself, and you may need to start with a smaller company to get your feet wet.
You will be fighting against people who get a bachelors degree for jobs. This can be overcome if you are passionate about this field and learn, learn, learn.
No matter what choice you make, coding or programming will keep you work for many years and is a great field to venture into
