Coding in the Future: Will it remain relevant?

Coding in the Future: Will it remain relevant?

Coding is currently a very useful qualification and coding skills are a great asset to have when applying for jobs (it is estimates that around half of all job openings for coders are in non-tech industries such as finance and manufacturing). However, will this be the same in the future? Will coding still be relevant in a few years’ time?

 

1. It will become more of a core skill

As it stands today, rather than a specialised skill for mathematicians and IT graduates, coding has become a core skill. More and more people are learning how to code; such as teachers, for example, who use coding skills in the classroom. The future may see other professions taking up coding as well.

 

2. The love of coding will be encouraged in schools and workplaces

The importance of developing coding skills in students and employees will be emphasised. The demand for coding skills is high, but this is only going to increase over the next few years. New technologies are transforming the way we process and analyse data. More people with the skills to manage these evolving technologies will be needed.

 

3. What about AI?

AI and programming ‘bots’ will be able to take over the some of the functions of traditional programmers. However, human workers will always be necessary to some extent, such as people who need to analyse large sums of information and make responsible decisions. Certain coding tasks will always require a human touch.

 

4. Coding will become a ‘language’ used by more and more people

Coding is the one language that connects different nationalities and countries. Even now, it is used in many aspects of life and work and this will continue to increase.
