The job market may have taken a sharp right turn in the past few months, but even amidst all the changes happening in the workforce, one thing remains constant: Coding is a lucrative and in-demand skill. 

Programmers can command hefty six-figure salaries some even as starting salaries and the demand for these roles has increased quite dramatically in the past year, with growth for positions such as blockchain engineers and security engineers rising over 100%. The moral of the story here is that even if you have yet to touch a line of code, now is as good of a time as any to bust into the industry. 

As a starting point, we’d recommend taking the classes in The 2020 Premium Learn To Code Certification Bundle. Not only is this go-at-your-own-pace coding bootcamp affordable (right now its on sale for $39), but it also comes chock-full of over 120 hours of training content on today’s most essential computer programming languages, including JavaScript, Ruby, HTML, and Python, as well as foundational training on concepts such as machine learning and data science.

The education takes an interactive approach to learning, giving students practice interfaces and projects to build alongside their lectures. This includes crafting websites, games, and mobile apps that can then be highlighted in a portfolio for upcoming job interviews. And, along the way, digital lecturers break down complex topics and processes into easy-to-follow, step-by-step guides.

As one current student notes, “These courses are awesome! They’re detail rich and have plenty of hands on projects to keep you focused.” Lifetime access to the training materials means that if you need a refresher throughout the course or your career or want to progress
