Why learn to code?
Coding (or computer programming) is what makes it possible for us to create computer software, apps and websites. Being able to code is an essential 21st century skill, and it helps to develop problem solving, maths skills, team work, and analytical thinking. Almost every single industry is becoming dependent on people who know how to write code and with the current reliance on technology the demand for programmers is expected to grow significantly in the future.
