Nowadays, whether you want to start a career in IT or initiate a couple of side-projects on your own, it has become mandatory to learn coding to succeed. Moreover, being capable to speak the technology language with investors, partners or potential employees could work in your favor.

However, before diving in, let’s go through some definitions. Indeed, before tackling a new language, you should be aware of the difference between Front-end and Back-end programming languages. For instance, if you aim to work as an UX/UI Designer, you should learn Front-End codes like HTML, CSS and JavaScript. If you rather go deeper and be able to code an entire website, then you should focus your effort on learning Back-end programs such as PHP or Ruby.
