Recode – By Recode Staff writerOn Friday, the day the U.S. election was announced, the National Academy of Sciences published a study showing that “code” is the most valuable human resource.
The study also found that “software engineers” are the most influential people on the planet.
And yet, as the number of engineers in the workforce increases, the amount of time people spend coding is also increasing.
So what’s the secret to a successful career in coding?
Here are seven things you need to know about coding, from the basics to the most challenging.1.
Code is about being smart, not hard.
“If we have a problem, we can fix it,” said James Martin, the co-founder of Codecademy, a coding course and app.
“The key is to have the skills and the patience to work through the problems, and to solve them with the best tools you can.2.
Code has a history of being a “tough, persistent” discipline.”
They’re always trying to make their code better. “
They don’t want to go back to basics.
They’re always trying to make their code better.
That’s how they get to where they are.”3.
The best programmers can solve their problems.
“It’s not the code that’s the problem, it’s the code,” Martin continued.
“It’s the work that’s needed.”4.
You can make your life easier by taking the time to develop and learn.
“You’re not going to be able to do it all yourself, but you can at least learn a few of the things that you don’t know,” said Scott Allen, co-creator of the web-based software tool Learn to Code.
“You can develop skills that are applicable to every situation.”5.
If you’re an experienced programmer, you’re the best one to ask for help.
“When I was a beginner I was always looking for help from the front end and I was the only one who had a lot of experience,” Allen said.
“[But] now I’m a veteran who’s had the time and experience to ask people to code and do things I could never have imagined doing.”6.
It’s also a great way to get involved with other engineers.
“As an engineer you want to get out of the office and get some real life,” Martin explained.
“If you’re a student you want some kind of real life, but if you’re working on a website or a team, you want a real life.
You want to really get involved and learn about the other engineers, how they do their jobs, and learn from them.”
I think this is really helpful for people who want to learn from people they know.”7.
There are plenty of good, well-rounded coding courses out there.”
So it’s a very diverse group of people who really are doing something.””
There are lots of good courses out in the world that have really great instructors.
