Something to consider for those who want to stay at the top of the innovation curve. It’s also worth noting those with programming skills are highly employable. They can live and work anywhere. There’s a shortage of women (especially ‘women of color’) in technology. Which also means these are lucrative positions.
I’m studying Python right now. You don’t need a computer science degree to understand it! As I move into the ownership class, I’ll be able to attract stronger business partners for the tech-based projects that interest me if I have a working knowledge of the back end fundamentals.
It’s something worth looking into for yourself, but especially as a key skill set for the upcoming generations of girls. I’ll update the post with additional resources if there’s a healthy response.
