5. You Can Learn It in College and on the Internet
Many websites offer free coding lessons and advise.
There are online courses you can take, and websites full of information on how to program.
There are forums and groups that will help you expand your knowledge, and there are always blogs full of new coding information.
You can learn it in college.
If you want a coding/programming career, you can do it without a qualification, but it is easier to get your foot in the door if you learn it in college and get a qualification.
You can prove your technical prowess with a company without a qualification, and many times you will be tested before you are hired, but a qualification also has the added benefit of you learning the newest coding languages.
