Some Suggested Courses to do in Computers When you are in School

Computers and software have become present everywhere. From booking a railway ticket to watching an IPL match on a smartphone, it is all down to coding and software. It is not surprising that the computer and software industry will provide the bulk of jobs in the coming years. Currently, India has 5.2 million employees who develop software, and the number will increase exponentially in the coming years as everything comes online due to the “Internet of Things” based on 5G technology.

It is essential to be exposed to programming at an early age. Of course, some of the basics are covered in school curricula, but coding goes far beyond that and is all about developing the confidence to execute projects. Thankfully in recent years, a considerable number of free courses have become available from Khan Academy to Codeacademy and Udemy which impart basic project management skills to school graduates.

At one-time, computer courses used to mean learning the MS Office and few lines of HTML. The needs have changed dramatically. There is a requirement for young minds to go in depth and learn at least 3 languages. This is not really very difficult since most computer languages are related to each other and mastering one lead to another.

The languages that are easiest to master are listed below -

HTML - The native language of the web - introduced in 1990 - is seen by 13.3 percent of web developers as the easiest to learn. The language is primarily intended for creating web pages. HTML is now in its 5th version, making it much easier to add multimedia elements. There are many free basic courses available online, such as Udacity and w3schools.com.
