The twenty-first century has been marked by technological advances that have changed the way we spend our free time, dating, career and eating. Everywhere you look, you find something related to the technology and software system it manages.
In the morning you wake up with an alarm clock (technology), brush your teeth with an electric toothbrush (technology), slowly go to the kitchen, where you make coffee in a coffee machine and make toast (technology), look at social networks on your smartphone (technology). you get dressed and get in the car (technology). You haven’t even started the day well yet, but you’ve already been part of the job of at least 10 different programmers.
WHAT DO YOU FEEL WHEN YOU HEAR THE WORD “PROGRAMMING”?
Are you scared? Are you looking forward to it? Programming normally provokes different reactions and we will admit to you right from the start: programming is not easy (although it is simpler than it was in the past, that’s for sure).
Developers are often very curious. Because they like to find out how things go “behind the scenes”, this stimulates their desire to program. Have you ever wondered how it is possible to watch movies on the phone, how Tinder works and how Google can find all the answers to our dumbest questions? If you are not interested in such things and do not like to look into the workings of technology, then maybe programming is not for you.
BUT IF YOU LIKE TO DEVELOP AND RESEARCH THE UNKNOWN … JUST READ FURTHER.
In addition to creating serious and useful content and applications, programming knowledge also pays off in other areas – in communication skills, the ability to think logically and, above all, patience. Software services have been in high demand for the last few years, and the possibility of working remotely convinces even the most skeptical.
Every single one of us depends on technology, but very few people know how it really works. If you are a complete beginner or have not started programming at all, there are many reasons to start programming … ASAP.
WHAT DO YOU SAY ABOUT THE NEW CHALLENGE?
Learning programming will open up countless new paths: you can join a start-up, start a website for your side-business, introduce programming skills to your current job and earn an extra points demanding a higher salary, and above all, you can completely change your career path and be a programmer that works from anywhere in the world.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
If you’ve said to yourself several times that this isn’t for you (omg, seriously?), Let’s politely correct you: that’s not true.
Programming is actually not hard to learn if you have:
- A good support
- A good instructor
- Willpower carrying around
With the first and second point, we can help you with SmartNinja courses, and as for the willingness to learn something new, we suggest you read our blog about reasons why it would be cool to be a programmer.
What do you say? Join to our simple, four-day Programming Week where we will teach you many basics of programming:
HTML language and website structure writing and CSS for website editing
Use of developer tools in browsers
Using the Atom code editor
If none of the above is clear to you … WORRY NOT. The course is suitable for complete beginners! In four days, you will clarify all the listed topics in a nice and understandable way and see if programming suits you. After this course, just keep going. Sky’s the limit!
