Coding will enhance students’ employment prospects in the upcoming job market, writes Kartik Mathur
Coding has become the most sought-after skill of the 21st century. Students are either spending time working on coded software and applications or building one. It entails using logic to solve a problem by reducing its complexity to a simpler structure and deducing from it. NEP 2020 asserts that the existing curriculum is not enough to educate the students for a market that will be dynamic in the coming years. Coding is beneficial to pupils as it teaches them logical thinking and problem solving at an early age. Due to this, we shall witness a new generation that will address problems analytically. In India this is an excellent moment to teach youngsters about new age learning which would benefit them tremendously in the upcoming job market.
Some of the popular programming courses that students can opt for include web development, Visual Programming (Scratch/Code.ORG) and many more. A student can begin with learning any programming language and enter in the domain of their interest be it game development, app development, etc.
Following are some of the beginner-friendly courses that can help the budding students to master programming:

Web Development is one of the most growing domains of technology. Full Stack development course focuses on learning and improving the skills. There is less cramming involved in this course as students are given the opportunity to create their own projects in order to become a full stack developer. From the basics front end which includes
With the rapid growth of technology, competition is developing at an exponential rate and hence it is necessary to be skilled in programming abilities from an early age. With the development in automation, there are more number of career prospects that demand coding as a necessary ability. A brighter future for the next generation is being built as we go towards the era of programming.
