Lots of people get into programming because they love the challenge, are excited by computers and want to build a career creating websites, mobile apps or desktop programs. But even if you don’t want to become a programmer for a living, it’s still worth your time to learn how to program. I mean this in all seriousness: if computers are at all a part of your life, then learning to program is going to improve your life.
Software Engineers use their understanding of how computers and networks work to design, develop and maintain the programs (software) that run computers. … Front-End Developers are computer programmers that create a website’s or app’s visual experience. They are the face of the site.
I don’t mean in that sort of nebulous, “improve your mind,” “expand your thinking skills” and “make you a better person” sort-of-way. Learning to program can make you more productive, efficient and effective.
