School is Not a SCAM in Your Journey to Programming Mastery

There’s a popular saying that “School is a Scam,” especially among young youths, suggesting that standard academic education is deceitful…

This belief often comes up in discussions about learning programming, where some argue that formal education isn’t necessary – that you can learn everything on your own.

But let’s set the record straight…

Programming is about giving instructions to computers. Some claim you can master it independently, and to some extent, that’s true. But attending school for programming has its perks too.

In a classroom setting, you don’t just learn how to code; you understand why it works and how to solve complex problems…

Plus, working on projects with classmates teaches collaboration and communication – vital skills for any job.

The school also provides access to valuable resources like computers, books, and knowledgeable and experienced teachers…

Schools sometimes partner with companies, offering internships or job opportunities post-graduation.

But not everyone can attend school, and that’s okay. There are plenty of free and paid online resources where you can practice coding and learn new skills.

Regardless of your path – school or self-learning – having a mentor can make a big difference. A mentor is like a coach, offering advice and support as you strive for success…

So, whether you choose formal education or self-learning, both paths can lead to programming mastery. And if you want guidance along the way, we’re available to mentor you, ready to help you reach your goals.

If you’re ready to take the next step in your programming journey and could use some one-on-one mentorship, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
