Everyone's always talking about learning to code, and I'm not sure if I should get involved. I don't really see myself being an engineer, so I'm not sure if it's worth the effort. Also, it looks really hard and idk if I'd be good at it.
You don't NEED to learn to code, but I can almost guarantee you that in today's economy, it will only help you. Maybe not even actual coding, but systems thinking alone can help you tremendously in trying to approach large problems.
But even in roles that previously had nothing to do with tech, there's increasingly more coding-related work to do. For example, marketers in today's economy are wiring together complex technological marketing "stacks" and analyzing massive data sets to optimize marketing initiatives.
I definitely recommend at least trying to take a stab at it, and seeing how you can apply it to you OWN interests, because it really can be beneficial.
