Yet another reason to learn to code!
According to this MarketWatch article, half of all high paying jobs nowadays require coding skills!
A surprisingly large percentage no doubt, but I’m not surprised to see how useful coding is in the job industry… it’s the skill of future and I don’t want to be a man of the past!
I always say it but I’ll say it again: learning to code in Salesforce is learning a skill for life! Long after Salesforce is gone (and I hope that day never comes), you’ll have a transferrable skill with your coding knowledge. Once you learn one programming language, all others are easy to pick up.
Declarative / point-and-click Salesforce tools, on the other hand, are a different story. Those skills are so Salesforce specific that you’re essentially tying all your knowledge on one platform. You never want your career to be in the hands of one company!
If you’re still on the fence on whether you want to learn to code or not, it’s time to take charge of your own career and learn a life skill in coding!

Yes, you are absolutely correct. I started my career as C/C++ Embedded developer and then moved to Java/J2EE. Then when I started my journey with Salesforce/Apex, it looks so easy to me. I always feel comfortable with Apex. And I completely agree that coding is the future. While Salesforce is good, but it is always important not to put all the eggs in the same bucket. You know. :-).
Yes, you are so right . Even me being from mobile programming background, which is entirely different than the web programming, had no difficulty in picking up Apex & VF and soon enough, as you can imagine, I’ve a fair grip on VF and Apex.
