Why you should learn how to code

In a fast growing economy like Bangladesh's, reliance upon IT industry is increasing every day. Companies need professionals to be able to digitise every data entry. Saad Bin Amjad, an employee at Monstar Lab Bangladesh says, “Coding trains students to break down large complex problems into smaller problems. Even when students don't end up in coding jobs, the skill sets developed during the learning phase will help drive their career growth.”

Providing online-based services

With the emergence of local service platforms like Shohoz and international brands like Aladdin Works, online services including coding jobs are increasing rapidly. You can sit at home with your laptop, code and earn instantly.

Freelancing for agencies

Besides employing full time programmers, agencies in Dhaka also require part-time coders for project-based jobs. Updating applications, modification of websites and creating algorithms to study surveys are the sort of jobs you can expect as a part-time coder. That way, you don't have to invest your entire work day to keep your coding skills in use.

Developing analytical skills

Practicing to code enables a person to unlock their ability to think critically. You can learn how to approach problems methodically and look for a solution by computing a formula in your mind. It increases problem solving skills greatly and makes you a fast thinker.

Flexibility of time

Coders don't depend on other factors or agents to complete their tasks. Unlike individuals who work in sales or in marketing, their task doesn't depend on variable factors like humans. As long as you and your laptop are compatible, finishing before deadline will be a piece of cake for you.
