Coding is the Future of Every High Paying Job

Job hunting site Burning Glass analyzed 26 million online job postings and found something very surprising: Employers are beginning to require coding skills for non-programming jobs.

Coding, or computer programming, is becoming a core skill requirement for many well-paying jobs. Coding skills are in demand across a broad range of careers, not just for programmers.

The ability not only to use but also to program software is often required of business people who work with data, of designers and marketers who create websites, of engineers who build products and technologies, and of scientists who conduct research.

Unfortunately, our educational system at every level has yet to catch up to employer demand. An introduction to programming course should be required in every high school across our nation. If a teenager wants a high paying job in the next six years he will need to at least know how programming languages work, even if he's not interested in working as a programmer.

For example this marketing job at CapitalOne wants a candidate who knows SQL, and this sales job wants someone who knows Javascript. The most in-demand teaching job today is for Computer Science, and one presidential candidate has promised to fund coding programs to fill the gap.
