Have you or your kids tried any computer programming? Maybe you have thought about learning to code?
There are a lot of reasons to give coding a try. It's a great way to sharpen your thinking, get superhuman amounts of work done, and have fun building apps and websites.
It's also a pretty good career move. Programmers in Utah make $77k a year or more.
At the Careers in Coding event, we will hear from several alumni of the Dev Mountain coding bootcamp. They will share their stories about learning to code and transitioning to new, high-paying careers. We will be talking about these and other questions.
- Which programming languages have proved valuable?
- How hard was learning to code?
- Can someone with no technology background do coding?
- What is the "day in the life" of a computer programmer like?
- What should a younger person do to prepare for a career in coding?
There will be plenty of time for discussion, so make sure to come with any questions you have about computer programming career options. And also, refreshments!
