Whether they are students or workers of any profession. Programming is one of those things that everyone can learn.

The social media age is over and surely you didn't even realize it. Although we will continue to use them, something else has arrived.

The Internet of Things (IoT) will connect objects instead of people. The time has come when we can use a cell phone or other devices to carry out the most unthinkable daily tasks.

Programming makes these things possible, but it is not limited to that. There are other benefits for those who have set out to learn this discipline, such as:

  • It improves the ability to solve difficulties by training the mind to divide it into smaller problems.
  • Improve self-control. Sometimes you get mad about something difficult to understand. Programming is like that and you have to overcome it, it will make you a better person.
  • Improve humility. No one does it alone in this geeky world and who seems to know everything also learned it from someone else.
  • Improve spelling. You will have to rely on communities, guides and colleagues to move forward, you will read a lot and this will revolutionize your way of expressing yourself and writing.


Yes. You should and I emphasize, you should(!) learn to program. It is a unique skill that contributes a lot to your private and work life.

These are the benefits that I have had, I invite you to share yours here in the comments below.
