Why Learning to Build is More Important Than Learning to Code

July 29th, 2020  |  2PM ET


In the past decade, there has been a huge focus on learning to code and this has been seen in the dramatic increase of coding bootcamps available and the number of enrollments. However, when we look at the value of acquiring new skills, it’s important to also account for how long these skills will remain relevant. Engineers feel a constant pressure to stay valuable by staying up to date on the latest set of languages, but language requirements constantly evolve and change.

He will discuss the key differences between building and coding and share how building can result in quicker time to market and the ability to configure complex solutions without a single line of code.
