It is computer programming. It is writing out a series of instructions so that a computer will do what you want it to do. This can be incredibly useful, and it can put you way ahead in life.
Imagine that instead of having to pay for software that will do a certain thing for your business, that your only overhead for that software could be the time it takes to produce it yourself. Need to keep track of inventory? Just write the code yourself. I charge up to thousands of dollars for a custom website... imagine being able to create that for yourself.Treat coding as a skill that you can leverage to set yourself to the next level and put yourself ahead in your endeavors.
