How to become a computer programmer

The process of digitization seems unstoppable, and where there is digitization there is software and therefore computer programmers. It is estimated that only 0.5 percent of the world's workforce can program, so if you have decided to go down this path professionally, you have a very good chance of finding a job within a reasonable time. In addition, programmers have the opportunity to advance their careers and earn a great salary. If you are taking your first steps in this direction, read this article and find out how you can become a programmer in a few simple steps.

How to become a programmer – preliminary considerations

First of all, it is appropriate to make some general assessments about the world of programming. They will help you understand whether it is a profession that is really for you. At the same time, you can meditate on what are your strengths, which you can leverage especially at the beginning of your career, and your weaknesses, aspects that you will want to keep in mind and try to improve over time.

So here are some important aspects to keep in mind.

Do you need a degree or a specific course of study to become a computer programmer?

A degree in a computer science discipline can certainly help you, but it is not the only path. In fact, programming is one of the few professional worlds in which practice matters more than theory. To practice, you have many options: there are courses for programmers that will get you acquainted with one or more programming languages within a few months, but there are also those who study self-taught and get excellent results. There exist also a number of specialists that can help you with homework while you study the basics: seach for "do my programming homework" Iin Google to find them, but first try to do the exersizes by yourself. t is up to you to decide which learning system suits you best.

Is there a maximum age to start learning programming?

It is said that in life "it is never too late" to learn something new, and this also applies to programming. In your 20s you learn very quickly, but thanks to the extraordinary plasticity of the human brain you can try your hand at something new while getting respectable results even at an older age. Willpower makes all the difference; "throw your heart over the hurdle" and dedicate yourself to learning. If you devote two hours a day (minimum) five days a week to programming, in a year or so you may well become a programmer.

Is it essential to know English well to study programming?

Knowing English is not essential but it can help you a lot, for a number of reasons. First of all, you will have access to a much greater amount of information and tutorials on programming. Many videos on YouTube are in English (although there are excellent ones in Italian), as are dedicated Reddit pages and online courses on sites like Udemy. In addition, you will have the opportunity to work with the largest international technology companies.

What is the average salary for a coder?

What is the average salary for a coder?

The salary of programmers is directly proportional to their experience in the field. Junior programmers, that is, with less than 3 years of experience, can earn figures around $1,200 net per month. Senior programmers at the end of their careers, that is, with 15-20 years of experience, can earn $3,500-4,000 net per month or more. The national average is around $20,000 net per year.

What types of programmers exist?

Another important aspect to consider concerns the type of specialization to which you want to devote yourself. Based on the latter you will decide which programming languages to focus on, so that you can focus and optimize your efforts.

Here are the main specializations:

  • Software developers. Software developers, or software developers, write lines of code for the purpose of creating programs with various functionalities. There are developers who develop a program from start to finish, others who "fix" certain portions of code, and still others who work in teams of several programmers on a common project.
  • Web site developers. These programmers are in charge of writing code related to a website. Unlike those who use building programs, such as Elementor, Web developers know programming languages that allow them to build the very framework of the Internet site. There are programmers who deal with the interface between site and users, others who deal with the interface between site and server, and still others who deal with both.
  • Data scientists. In the era of Big Data, data scientists have become a much sought-after figure in the programming world. They are tasked with analyzing large amounts of data and extracting relevant information from it. The most suitable programming language for data scientists is undoubtedly Python.
  • App Developers. The world of smartphones and applications dedicated to them is constantly growing. Reason why the figure of App developers is extremely in demand, as well as highly paid. App developers work in teams within startups, but also on their own, for example, as freelancers.
