What we do
Coding is the most sought after tech skill in today’s market according to Computerworld’s “10 Hottest Tech Skills for 2017.” If you aren’t taking advantage of this high demand, you are missing out on opportunities to earn some serious cash! Apart from your standard 9-5 grind, there are many ways to make money while exercising your coding muscle!
1. Build an App
How many times have you thought,”There should be an app for that?” Well stop thinking and start building! Coding is a skill that allows you to realize visions and build something from nothing. If you might find that app useful or entertaining, there is a good chance others will too! Some tips from the experts though: build a free and a paid version, build more than one so that you can cross-market your apps, and make sure that the content you provide is unique and engaging!
Everybody has a side gig these days. Your waitress is actually an actress and your dog walker is actually a writer. So, why aren’t you getting a piece of the pie? Offering your coding skills as a freelancer means you get to set your own rates, select your projects, and create on your time table. Even if you need to dust off those coding skills or add a few new languages to your repertoire, according to San Antonio Coding Academy, you can do this in as little as two nights a week! With some fine-tuned, up-to-date coding skills, you can be bringing in extra cash in no time!
3. Teach Others
Let’s say your skills are already off the charts. Share the wisdom! There is a huge demand for coding skills right now and people need proficient teachers to supply the demand! With so many people wanting to learn coding, turning teaching into an income stream is a no-brainer. You can teach at your local coding school or offer your services online. Many existing online services need mentors for students as well!
4. Participate in Programming Contests
Did you know you can even earn money competing as a coder? There are several online contests provided through websites like Top Coder and Code Chef. that offer an easy way to earn some extra cash for the coder extraordinaire. They’re easy to join and contestants have walked away with cash, prizes, and sometimes even job offers! What better way to spend your spare time than building bragging rights and making some moolah!
The bottom line is don’t let those coding skills go to waste! It’s like leaving money under your mattress. It’s not earning interest, it’s not building anything, and it’s not maximizing it’s potential. It’s not doing anything for anybody! That same money could be invested and grow into so much more! Besides, if you don’t use it, you lose it! So, drag out those coding skills, dust them off, and get to earning! Turn your skills into cold hard cash!
