Over the past couple of years, coding education for kids and adults have been one of the top topics to come across, and this is not just for the fact that it is a skill needed in the future, but also for being a valuable skill to have. Coding is one of the most in-demand jobs in Canada at the moment, not just Canada but the whole world as well. Having any of the skills that these in-demand jobs ask for might increase salaries for candidates and make them applicable for jobs in the technology market.

What Are the Needed Coding Skills?

Computer coding is the language that programmers write in order to give instructions to the computer to function. Coding is an efficient language that programmers use in order to create computer programs, systems, and applications. Since now everyone is working on a computer and using a smartphone, computer programmers who know how to code are becoming more in demand. There are different skills that coding requires and which include language acquisition, innovative thinking, analytical skills, attention to details, and communication.

At first, you might not understand the link between some of these skills and coding, but when you get to understand how the process goes for a programmer to develop an application or a website, you will get to know why these different skills are important and needed.

  1. Language Acquisition
  2. There are a variety of computer coding languages out there that programmers choose to use according to their needs to create applications and websites. From the common coding languages, there is Python, Java, Ruby, HTML, and C. Usually, programmers learn more than one language in order to be able to create and work with different formats.

  3. Critical and Innovative Thinking
  4. Another important skill that coders should have and which they also learn from practicing coding is thinking critically and innovatively. Any programmer will most probably face several issues which he/she will need to solve. To think innovatively, the programmer should first identify the problem, develop a solution, and test the effectiveness of this solution. Sometimes, thinking critically includes choosing the right coding language needed in order to develop a new website or application.

  5. Analytical Thinking
  6. Innovative thinking is one thing that programmers need to have in order to solve a problem, but analytical thinking is another that coding requires because programmers need to use logic and scientific methods in order to start thinking of ways to solve the problem. Collecting, analyzing, and interpreting large amounts of data is considered part of what the programmer or coder should be able to do, and computer coding involves understanding and replicating sequences, patterns, and sometimes equations, that’s why mathematical problem-solving is considered a plus for those seeking a career in coding.

  7. Focusing on Details
  8. Just a simple, small error in a code could crack a website or an application, which is exactly why focusing on the details will always help programmers avoid such errors. Coders should have the ability to focus on small details for a long period of time in order to notice patterns, memorize commands, and identify mistakes that would help in creating a successful program, website, or application.

  9. Communication
  10. Coming to the final important part related to the skills that coders should have is communication. In any team, communication is a must in order for the team members to be able to handle the tasks, solve any appearing problems, and smoothly pass these tasks between each other. When it comes to coding, being able to communicate and explain new methods and suggestions in a clear way will always help in the overall achievement of a project.
