Become a World-Class Programmer

Become a World-Class Programmer with Belgium Campus iTversity

There are many reasons to become a programmer. Professionals in this fielduse their techskills and creative thinking to make the impossible possible. They have learned the language of computers and use it to create the softwareprograms and applications you and I enjoy daily. They are also the bright minds behind solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges.

This article explores how professionals in this field have changed the world (both for individuals and society), what a career as a programmer entails, and where you should study to become a world-class one.

Talking To Computers

Programming experts use special languages called programming languages to communicate with electronicdevices. They use these languages to write the code (set of instructions) that tells these devices what to do. Virtually every electronic device we use depends on coding to function, and having this skillmeans being able to control all these devices – talk about power!

But learning this skill isn’t easy. (The sea of memes on the internet expressing varying levels of frustration at not understanding why code doesn’t work can attest to this.) It requires hard work, problem-solving, attention to detail, patience, and a dedication to lifelong learning.

It only takes one small typo to prevent code from working, and with new programming languages emerging all the time (each with its own set of rules), professionals in this field are always on their toes. But while challenging, working in this field is also extremely rewarding. There is no feeling quite like writing code that works and solves a problem – just ask any programmer!

Impacting Our World

Professionals in this field are responsible for the code that powers many things we couldn’t imagine life without, including washing machines, elevators, cell phones, televisions, traffic lights, and coffee machines, to name a few.  

They are also the brilliant minds behind solutions that changed the course of history. These include the flight software that made the Apollo 11 moon landing possible and the invention of the Bombe, an electro-mechanical device used to decipher secret messages that played a crucial role in ending the Second World War.

With the above in mind, it is clear that learning to program provides endless opportunities for innovation. If you have a creative mind filled with big ideas, learning to harness this sought-after tech skill could help you bring these ideas to life!
