As I have said previously, I’m no fan of programming or app development. I don’t find myself to be very good at it, but I am truly in awe of what can be accomplished with properly written applications, especially when the applications leverage network and cloud-based technologies to provide enhanced functionality and reporting capability while offering cross-platform support.

In this fast-paced digital world, programming or coding literacy is no longer limited to the bespectacled denizens of Silicon Valley. Basic coding knowledge is not only preferred but also expected for most jobs — whether it’s programming or PR.

Moreover, the demand for competent programmers is at an all-time high right now. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment of software developers is projected to grow 22% from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all other occupations. This has created the need for learning platforms that can help Americans stay ahead of the curve and get the skills they need for the jobs of the future.

More and more development teams are turning toward an Agile approach and for a good reason. Recent studies suggest that organizations adopting an Agile approach experienced a 71% increase in project cost reduction. Development teams are finding they can speed up software development without sacrificing quality.

From there, teams all over started to tweak this approach to fit their unique needs.

The Agile approach can help software development teams embrace the power of collaboration and self-organization. In this post, we’ll explain how it can benefit distributed teams, in

The job market may have taken a sharp right turn in the past few months, but even amidst all the changes happening in the workforce, one thing remains constant: Coding is a lucrative and in-demand skill. 

Programmers can command hefty six-figure salaries some even as starting salaries and the demand for these roles has increased quite dramatically in the past year, with growth for positions such as blockchain engineers and security engineers rising over 100%. The moral of the story here is that even if you have yet to touch a line of code, now is as good of a time as any to bust into the industry.

Click picture for my feelings on the matter.
