Programming: Gift or Experience?
People often think that programming is a very complex subject. Since it requires a lot of time and practice, maybe that is why people think it is complex but what they do not know is that they are wrong. Programming is an easy subject if well understood. In this article, we tried to understand all the basic aspects of the life of a programmer.
What is programming?
Programming is a computer science subject. Students are taught with many sets of instructions and software to make computer programs. These programs help in running industries plants. Without these programs, the machinery will be very difficult to interact with. Today if all the working is done by just one click then that’s all because of programs.
This field is very big. Python, Java, C++ are just a small part of programming. The field is so big that it has been broken into subfields and universities are offering those subfield courses. Most universities are offering computer science and software engineering while the programming doesn’t end there. Even in the field of hardware programming requires work, so besides programming, universities also offer hardware education as well.
Why people are afraid of programming?
The reality is that people are very afraid of programming. When they hear programming, what comes in their mind is that sitting in front of the computer the whole day. That is not all, they also think that it’s a very distress work such as finding bugs in a program, etc. It is true to some extent but the reason they think that is because they never tried programming before. Programming is a very interesting job. Programmers got to sit in front of a computer or laptop but it is way better than running here and there for carrying out jobs. Programmers can also make a program of their own choices such as make a program, which can rewrite your personal statement, solve all mathematical problems and many others. Another advantage is that programmers can become a full-time freelancer and offer services to clients.
Is programming for gifted people or mastered with experience?
There is no shame in choosing programming as a career. In fact, it is considered as one of the best careers in this world. There is a common misconception that people think programming is only for gifted students. The reason for their thinking is because programming is very long and hard as well.
That is also true to some extent but not completely. Programming is not only for gifted students but for everyone who wants to learn. Programming may not be easy at the initial stage, but later on, it will not only get easy but also interesting. It doesn’t mean that gifted people won’t require practice. In order to learn programming, they need to practice on a daily basis.
Recently, many new updates are introduced. The purpose of these updates is to make programming easy and less buggy. In the past, people mostly use C++ and Java to create programs but now many software such as phyton, MATLAB, GitHub and many more are used and it made programming much easier and interesting.
Pros and cons of programming
Everything in this world has pros as well as cons. Programming is an interesting subject but on the other hand, it has many disadvantages as well. Below are the pros and cons of programming, read on.
The best part of programming is that the programmer needs to be creative and offer something exceptional. That is the real key to success for a programmer. If the programmer lacks something then there is no need to worry, he/she can work on his/her problem.
There is a high probability that programmers will receive high paid jobs as well. If he/she became a well-known programmer, then people will love him/her to carry out their project and they will be willing to pay top dollars for it. One thing for sure is that programmers will never suffer unemployment, unlike other engineers.
On the other side, programming has disadvantages as well. First thing is that it affects health. Sitting in front of a computer or laptop for more than 2 hours is unhealthy. It can affect your eyes, brain and even backbone as well.
Its true programming has a big future but for that people need a lot of hard work which can reduce their time for their family and friends. Not everyone can master programming, it might look easy but it is very hard and even after a lot of hard work, not everyone can accomplish the master level.
Programming is an amazing field and many people have become successful by just programming. Programming is for people who are keen to learn and hard work. No matter they are gifted or not, they need to practice it otherwise they won’t be able to master it.
