Programming is shaping the course of our universe.
"Technology, like art, is a soaring exercise of the human imagination."
Programming is a very fast growing profession. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, from 2016 to 2026 alone it’s expected to grow 24%, which is much faster than the average (which is around 5 to 9 percent.) This is due to the growth of technology, the high wages, and overall need for more creative minds. This can also be attributed to the fact that more and more schools are teaching programming classes, which expose young, curious adolescents to the world of code.
While it’s still fairly rare to see in public schools, programming is growing at a fast rate. Code.org is exposing students as young as 5-6 to programming using their easy to understand games and tutorials. This alone is causing a very early interest in programming, which might eventually blossom into a future career, which then in turn expands the world of technology.
Technology is expanding at an exponential rate. According to Themergingfuture.com, technology will be roughly 32 times more advanced than it is now in only six years. However, this creates a need of more programmers, which in turn causes more schools to offer classes relating to programming, causing the cycle to repeat, creating visionaries in the process.
Our world is evolving, and programming is contributing to this fact immensely. Not only will it be one of the most lucrative jobs in the future, but essential as well.
