The survey was done in collaboration with Oracle Academy, which is a part of Oracle company. VP of Oracle Academy Alison Derbenwick Miller says that programming and knowledge of tech are not limited to tech jobs. Every company is using computers. Programming are a set of instructions told to computers about what to do.
But if you don’t know how to code, there are some good news for you. First, you can always learn how to code for free. There are free programming courses on websites like Khan Academy, Code Academy and EDX where you can take courses on programming. Secondly, there are many high paying jobs which don’t require coding skills. These jobs include Product Management, Consultancy and Contractor.
But learning a new skill is always good and useful for the future. You can learn a new programming language in around a month, and with practice and test projects, you can get a strong hold on the skill.
