With the emergence of many new technologies, software applications and digital platforms, the craft of a programmer is now more important than ever. What makes this profession so attractive and what are its challenges? In the digital age, programming is a profession that is gaining ground. The high salary and stability in the IT sector is one of the biggest pluses, he says Christian Petkovoperations manager at a career development company:
“We live in a world that is extremely technologically driven. Technology is everywhere – in our everyday life, in our homes, in our lives. Accordingly, the sector is developing more and more. From this point of view, the demand for personnel is very high and the conditions that are provided to these personnel are much better than in a number of other sectors, so as young people en masse focus on this sector, people who are otherwise qualified are starting to reconsider their professional development.”
Programmers enjoy more prestige. They are valuable figures in any organization as they are responsible for the creation and maintenance of numerous digital products and services. They often enjoy better working conditions, which include a higher than standard salary. This is also due to the fact that there is a great demand for specialists in this field, but there are not enough of them. This profession, however, requires constant development of knowledge and skills – with this pace of development, there is also a need for a change in programming languages. This requires continuous enrichment of knowledge and refinement and expansion of skills, the main plus of which is that it allows for growth and development. That’s what he said Emil Kirilov from Vidin, which has been engaged in the production of hardware products for years.
“It has become very easy to enter this profession now, thanks to these institutions that have appeared recently, which train and retrain many people. In addition, the high remuneration in the IT sector cannot help but attract young people, but this branch now also started to become slightly oversaturated. Every employer, however, now also needs quality engineers, not only programmers. The market is already starting to lack people who have the fundamental knowledge of physics, of the world, if you will, and of the economy, because many of the products in software are related to other branches,” he explained Emil Kirilov.
Although programming offers many opportunities, it is important that anyone who decides to follow this path is well informed and prepared for the challenges that await them. Programming is a field that offers huge opportunities for career development, but it also comes with certain challenges. It is important that any potential professional in this field consider all the pros and cons before making a final decision.
