Learning to code in the Nordics

As a result of COVID-19, many of us now work from home, temporarily laid off, or forced out of work. A lot of people are using this time to upskill for the future workforce. But what skills should you learn? In a word? Programming. Learning to code in the Nordics is essential. Companies are now looking at the future of work, and technology is what keeps the doors open. The problem is, there are not enough developers in Denmark, Sweden, or Norway. 

Learning to code can be challenging, and many people don’t think they can learn it. However, programming is essential for future workforces. Anyone can learn it – provided you give it the time and energy required. While coding demands patience, it is a skill that everyone can learn, and as a bonus, you learn a lot of soft skills in the process.
