Coding is one of the well-paying jobs available and here I’m gonna help you jump start your coding journey. Averagely the lowest-earning coders earn about $30k per year, this is just an estimate. It goes higher and higher fast as you get experience. With programming, you don’t need to be employed though, you can work as a freelancer, or create your own projects, for example, an app or website then monetize it, and there you go.

As you have seen programming pays, but how do you get started. I did research and found out that in the programming world there are mark-up languages, scripting languages, systems, hardware, and databases. This depends on the particular company, that of course does stuff related to programming. They will always use at least two or three of the categories above.

So if you want to be employed then at least choose what is from the above categories. Here are the best programming languages to help you jump-start your programming journey.
