Watch: How Long Will It Take To Learn To Code

Video description:

In today’s video I give my opinion on how long it takes to learn how to code! Many people have asked me how long it will take to learn how to code . The number one answer and advice I would give anyone asking me that question would be, “it is more about the journey than about the destination.”

WATCH: Is Computer Programming Hard To Learn

The most incredible video about Programming !

https://code.org/

Launched in 2013, Code.org® is a non-profit dedicated to expanding participation in computer science by making it available in more schools, and increasing participation by women and under-represented students of colour.

Our vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science.

We believe computer science and computer programming should be part of the core curriculum in education, alongside other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses, such as biology, physics, chemistry and algebra.

Code.org increases diversity in computer science by reaching students of all backgrounds where they are — at their skill-level, in their schools, and in ways that inspire them to keep learning.

Women in Technology

Although there has been a recent trend in people choosing to go into tech-based careers, women seem to be largely missing from the field. As a woman, I wonder why more of us do not choose this industry. The opportunities are tremendous and are only growing.

According to a 2012 report by the National Science Foundation, women make up only 18% of engineering, 18% of computer science and 19% of physics majors at the college-level.

Surprisingly enough, the same study showed that STEM-based electives at the high-school level had roughly the equal amount of women and men enrolled. As a woman in the technology field, I saw some of those disturbing statistics first-hand.

In my very first college-level scripting course, I was the ONLY female in a class of roughly 25. Imagine being the only woman in a class of 18-25 year old men. Strange, awkward, socially-inept, mouth-breathing men.

Ladies, where are you? Careers in these fields can be extremely rewarding. Seeing the website you just developed show up in a Google search, selling thousands of copies of that app you worked tirelessly on, hearing that the database you created for that Fortune500 company is error-free… The rewards are gratifying.

Although recent numbers show the trend heading upwards in our favor, we need to do better! Help break that stigma of mothers in Silicon Valley (or Shorewood, IL, as it is in my case).
