Complete a Programming Course for an Exciting Career

When deciding what to study, you don’t want to choose a course that will box you in and limit your career options. Programming is an in-demand skill that will give you access to a range of exciting and high-paying careers both within and outside of theIT sector. In this article, we explore some of these careers and outline what programming is and where you should study to become a sought-after expert.

What is Programming

Programmers write the code (set of instructions) that tells a computer how to carry out various tasks. At the most basic level, this can include telling a computer how to read keystrokes to display different keyboard characters on a screen. A range of codinglanguages (special languages that allow humans to communicate with computers) is used to achieve this, including JavaScript, Python, and C#, which are some of today’s most popular.

There are hundreds of different coding languages but don’t let this alarm you. Each language falls under four main categories: Procedural, Object Oriented, Logic, and Functional, and once you know one language from a category, it is much easier to learn the other languages within it.

Career Possibilities

When most people think of programmers, they generally only think of web and appdevelopment within the IT sector. While these are careers accessible to programmers, they are certainly not the only ones.

Programmers can perform a range of exciting tasks in virtually any industry. They can programme self-driving cars in the automotive industry, space exploring robots in the aerospace industry, and even robots that can assist doctors with surgery in the healthcare industry.

They can also apply their skills to create beautiful art, develop epic games or create the special effects and 3D animations that make today’s films so captivating. With this in mind, it is clear that professionals with this skill are both creative and analytical.
