Bill Gates? Steve Jobs? Mark Zuckerberg? These are the people that we all know when programming is the issue. With them, the guys who built Google, Youtube, and any other popular site did not become filthy rich because they made incredible software; they got rich because they sold it to companies that became the proprietor of driving it. Knowing all of these people, it is clear to say that programming can hand you a bit of a fortune. How exactly?
What is programming
To make the story short, programming alone would not make you rich. You see guys like I mentioned above? They became rich because of vision; they became rich because of the drive, their want, their thirst to spread what they have made to the whole world. But what is programming?
Simply put, programming is the process or study of taking an algorithm to encode it into a programming language. It is what every digital thing is made of and is certainly universal. Programmers are the people who program and the very first step that programmers do is to find an algorithm because without it, there will be no computer program.
Why is it important or in-demand?
We all know that technology now makes up almost everything from businesses, jobs, school, and even a normal person’s life. Obviously, it is important because without it, we would not be seeing everything here in this blog, without it you would not be seeing the internet, you won’t be able to connect to other people, companies, and you won’t have knowledge as to what you have known because of the internet.
It is in demand because one of the best businesses that circulate the world now is technological and programmers are the ones responsible in automating tasks, creating intelligent machines, and by connecting almost everyone from one vantage point.
How can it make you rich?
As I have said earlier, programmers do not make money by simply making software, by building new engines, and machines. They actually become rich because they are two steps ahead; it is their goal to sell what they have made to people all around the world in order to benefit the needs and the necessities of people.
Nowadays, technology is being linked to almost everything you can think of; communication, relationships, jobs, businesses, health, and even ways of living. This is one good reason how it can make you rich. You just have to think of infinite ways on how you have to sell, on what people need in order to make their lives easier and better.
