Everyone and their mother is talking about learning to code these days—and honestly, it’s for good reason. It’s no secret that here at Skillcrush, we believe that having tech skills are the fastest way to real career mobility—in fact, we see it in action everyday with our alumni.

But maybe you’re not a regular reader of our site and are just stumbling into the idea of becoming a programmer. First, let’s just say: Hi! It’s nice to meet you. We have tons of resources like Tech 101 explainers (even answers to the super basic tech questions you might be too embarrassed to ask), design inspiration, assurance that you don’t need to be a math whiz to work in tech, stories about working remotely or going back to work after a long break, advice for a freelance career once you’ve learned those tech skills, and real examples of our alumni who’ve made serious career changes.

But before you get into all that, we boiled it down pretty simply. Not sure if you should learn to code? Follow this chart and find out. If it’s not for you, we get it (although we want to hear why from you in the comments. . .because we sort of. . .don’t get it). But if it seems like a path you want to pursue, we’re here to help.
