The technology industry is the one that has made the most progress in terms of employment in recent years… and it is still not enough. Vacancies for these companies are currently still open.
That is why many young people decide, in a self-taught way, to enter the world of codes with programming to develop web pages, systems and other problems that they have to create.
With the advancement of online education, many have given up on entering a university to start their professional programming career on their own.
Given this scenario, we ask ourselves 5 basic questions that will help you get started in this world.

3. How much does a programmer earn?
According to a note from Herzing University, programmers earn an average of $40.84 per hour, with a monthly salary that starts at $3,779 and goes up to $10,927. The average annual salary is $84,940 and can go up to $131,120 per year.
Studies indicate that this number can increase significantly each year, as it happens.
4. Where is the field of activity of a programmer located?
Computer science and business are the most common fields for people in programmer jobs. A programmer will most often be promoted to programmer analyst, web developer, computer systems engineer, mobile app developer, and software engineer.
5. You have to learn English yes or yes
English is the de facto language of software development. Most programmers come from countries where higher education is in English: – USA / Canada / UK / India / Ireland. There’s a good reason why India has a lot more programmers than China.
For programmers who do not learn English as part of their training, they must eventually learn English. All online resources are in English. If you find translated documentation, you don’t know if there are any errors. Many tools are not localized.
More importantly, no developer works in a language bubble. If you are a professional programmer, you will at some point have to interact with someone who is not from the same culture as you. Which means if you are from a non-English speaking country, you need to understand enough English to communicate. If you come from an English-speaking country, you have to get used to talking to someone with a different accent.
