Today I want to tell you about some very good reasons why I chose to learn web development . If you are looking for a way out of work that you do not like, or are looking for the perfect ability to learn that will allow you to elevate yourself in life, I suggest you teach yourself what I call three golden: html, Css, and Bootstrap Or jquery. You can learn at your own pace and in two to three years from now you will be better off than you were before because you gained a negotiable skill that you can use to generate a good income. If that is not a good enough reason for you, here is a little more to get your motivation going.
NO UNIVERSITY DIPLOMA REQUIRED:
There is no need to sit in a classroom learning outdated or unnecessary material. Instead you can teach yourself the latest technologies with features like Expert trainings, although training is not free, it is easy to learn and I highly recommend them. Not to mention it’s a lot cheaper than paying for college courses.
YOU LEARN TO JOIN:
Learning to code is a highly valuable skill that you can benefit from within 2 to 3 years of practice. It’s like a plumber or a car mechanic. It is a skill that allows you, after becoming proficient, to go anywhere and find a great job or better yet to hire yourself.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED IS:
The requirements to learn and be productive are super small. All you need is internet and a working computer. THAT’S IT! These are the only two things you need to have.
BE YOUR OWN PATRON:
Are not you eager to punch the clock? Build your skill set and hire yourself! You can become a freelancer and be your own boss.
WORK FOR A COMPANY:
Employment as jr. Web developer is what I want to accomplish. Your dream job is at your fingertips. Why not work in a place that includes ping pong and beer? Free lunch, open vacation policies. The advantages that could come along with working for some of these places are a great bonus.
BECOME AN ENTREPRENEUR AND START A BUSINESS:
If you have this entrepreneurial spirit in you, learning to code will not only allow you to be able to manifest all your ideas, you also will not have to seek, trust or spend some money on a technical founder.
The number of employers looking for people with these skills is insane. I will not post any statistics but trust when I say that opportunities will come from the left and right once you establish yourself in the community and set up a nice portfolio.
WAGE POTENTIAL FIGURE:
You can make some serious money working as a web developer. I live in Brasilia. The Web developers involved here in web design and development earn an average of over $ 90,000 per year.
Depening and a skill set can be very good. You also have the potential to achieve financial freedom with stock options if you are lucky. Think of the previous google, facebook, apple, and microsoft employees.
YOU CAN LITERALLY BUILD YOUR IDEAS FOR NOTHING:
The code is light. You do not need a physical product to make a profit. Your website can run on autopilot. If you are running an e-commerce store it is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. You are able to create value through your fingers typing with very low overhead. There are no buildings to rent. No electricity bills to pay. You can build minimal viable products for yourself to test. It’s like a super power.
WORK OF ANYWHERE:
Freedom is the number one reason why I chose to learn to code. You do not have to worry about the physical location of a job if you do not want to. The internet is everywhere. Your laptop is portable. The idea of being able to take a trip somewhere in the momentum of a moment and still be able to make money and get important work done is very appealing to me.
I know I said that freedom is my number one reason, but I left another super important reason out.
CONNECT WITH ALL. IN ALL WORLD:
The fact that you can connect with an unlimited amount of people half way around the world in an instant is incredible. We are fortunate to live in a time where it is easy and possible to meet anyone from anywhere in the world.
