7 Tips Developers Can Use To Get Out Of Their “Burnout Slump”December 13, 2021
Due to the sudden and exponential increase in software technologies in everything from fully automated production lines to our own mobile devices, the effects of software development and its benefits are evident everywhere we look.
So why not start learning early and get even a rudimentary grasp on the subject by the time you graduate from high school? It is high time that more schools started to seriously invest in the world of technology as most jobs in the future, will to one degree or another, require a person to either write or at the very least, be able to read code.
With everything we do being put onto a screen and digitized, it is imperative that the world follows suit and educates the employees of tomorrow to be readily able to fill the shoes of the developers of today and expand on them. No longer is the profession of software development as revered or as exclusive as say a Doctor is, as it compasses almost every aspect of everyone’s lives, and it is now becoming not acceptable to claim to 'not be tech savvy'.
The technical freedom and control that comes with being able to write your own code to solve any problem is only becoming a more powerful and useful tool with every passing day. So why not educate the youth of today to begin understanding how to use this power and exploit this freedom to write their own paths in code?
Because of the ubiquity of code and technology in the lives of people there is a drive towards domain knowledge being more important than technical expertise. There are unfathomable amounts of tutorials/resources available to learn to code. But it is much harder to become an expert in a different field as well as being able to code. Being tech literate, but then following your passion will be more important than ever in the world of tomorrow. Biology in particular is a domain knowledge field that is in its infancy of being explored and exploited by technology.
There are countless resources available to teach yourself the basic fundamentals that will help you understand what goes into technology such as websites like W3Schools, hackerrank, and freecodecamp that focus on teaching the fundamentals.
Learn to code, become affair with technology, and then follow your passions. Marry the two and you will find yourself in a lucrative position later, with many avenues to better the world, and keep yourself entertained.
