The manufacturing environment is increasingly complex. The need for Computer-aided manufacturing CAM tools by the manufacturing engineer, programmer or machinist is similar to the need for computer assistance by the pilot of modern aircraft systems. The modern machinery cannot be properly used without this assistance.

Today's CAM systems support the full range of machine tools including: turning5 axis machiningwaterjetlaser / plasma cutting, and wire EDM. Today’s CAM user can easily generate streamlined tool paths, optimized tool axis tilt for higher feed rates, better tool life and surface finish, and ideal cutting depth. In addition to programming cutting operations, modern CAM softwares can additionally drive non-cutting operations such as machine tool probing.

Special Effects


Any movie with special visual effects uses software to a large extent to render the graphics and in production pipelines. Knowing how to program, as an effects artist, is like walking into a toy store as a kid. You can’t believe what is available and you have know idea where to start! Effects you used to think were complex, suddenly become understandable. You will begin to understand aspects of your tools that you never dreamed of! Programs that are good to learn as a special effects artist are: Python. Houdini, Maya, Nuke, Modo, and Blender all implement python and allow you to do some amazing things! Python is super easy to use and the support online and in studios is very vast! Later I recommend, if you are an Houdini Artist, C++ and VEX. For Maya artists, MEL and C++. 

Start with one computer language. Once you learn one very well you get the others (almost) for free because they are similar.



Even movies without visual effects will need software processing because more and more movies are shot digitally and the video files need post-processing. Companies like Pixar and Industrial Light and Magic develop custom software continuously in order to push the state-of-the-art in movie effects.

Apart from making movies, a production house is responsible for distribution and marketing as well. There are ERP systems that create orders with theaters and home entertainment networks to distribute movies. Data warehouse systems determine which is the target market and reach that is required to make movies from different genres profitable. All this is run by software. Although this may not be creatively linked with movie making but is a very crucial and essential part of the movie industry today.

Film is shot digitally, processed digitally and distributed digitally. It does not matter which program is used, code is king. Code runs it all today from the camera to the theater.



Coding is one of the emerging preeminent skill sets of architectural practice today. Faster schedules, tighter fees, and the importance of data are among the many reasons. Virtually all architectural work is created on the computer. In architecture typically off-the-shelf applications do the majority of the work. However, times are changing and many of the problems don’t fall within the abilities of the software. The demand for programming has increased and this is expected to be a strong growth area.




Learning to code is vital for entrepreneurs that want to keep pace with in our current environment.  If you’re running a website or app or selling online, understanding code is a necessity. If you have a large amount of customer data you want to analyse online, you’ll also need code. While not all businesses are developing a smartphone app or running an e-commerce platform, most are dealing in data and code of some form or another, whether that’s websites or customer details – and that’s where even a basic knowledge of the fundamentals of coding can help. 

At a startup, resources are scarce and your tech teams are on tight deadlines or budget.Rather than having to interrupt your tech team to make a small change to your website or update content in your app, you’ll have the ability and confidence to make a change without fearing a site shut down or interruption of business. If you know how to code, you’ll have a better understanding of what to look for in a talented developer or or other tech related workers. 

Strong critical thinking skills facilitate good decision making, and there is no better way to learn to think critically than by learning to code. As you think logically and algorithmically through the problems inherent in your startup and turn them into objects, methods and control flows, you’ll break down the problem your business solves into the bite-size pieces you’ll reuse and rely on in the future.

The modern marketplace is a digital world. Embracing new technology is a movement that reaches across all industries. In the process of digitizing, companies have to recruit new employees who can help drive the shift to developing a digital portfolio. In doing so, they often seek computer programmers who can bring a diverse set of attributes to the job.

As technology becomes more woven into all aspects of companies, there is a need for tech workers to be business savvy. Some major companies have begun to understand that for IT professionals to drive their business forward, they have to understand the nature of the business itself.



It’s hard to imagine a life without software usage today. When we wake up in the morning we use our digital alarm clock, we make phone calls that are software-controlled, we are constantly connected to a network via our phone or computer, we make road trips based on a digital navigation system, we shop online, download films onto our tablets, we use programmed machines to produce our clothes, interiors, food and other objects. All of the above have been programmed by a developer and since these technologies play such a large role in modern life, we need more people who understand how they work, not only for future job opportunities but also during their current education. Schools are now starting to use devices rather than books as educational tools which makes it crucial that our children know how to operate them.

The IT market is growing faster than we are educating people to manage it. Even though a great deal is being done to introduce computer science subjects into the education system, many teachers are yet to be trained to teach it. The American Bureau of  Labor forecast that 400,000 students would graduate with a computer science degree in 2015 and by that time, the demand for jobs in the relevant field would be 1.4 million.




The President's fiscal year 2017 budget request for IT was more than $89 billion, with much of this amount reportedly for operating and maintaining existing (legacy) IT systems.  Virtually every branch of our vast government requires coders to both modernize or replace our existing systems and create innovative uses with our expanding technological abilities.



Farmers and computer scientists are using data, math and coding skills to make farming greener, more productive, and more efficient. Computer Science and agriculture might seem an unlikely combination at first, but it’s one of the places where computing makes the biggest difference. From fields to factories, the number of coders and farmers working together is only going to grow.

Video Gaming

Their is a high demand for programers who can create new and exciting video games. If you want to design a truly unique game, writing computer code is almost a necessity. Typically, the more advanced the game in terms of performance and graphics, the more advanced the code. Video game creators sometimes refer to their chosen code as "the engine" that makes the game run. This code will make the billions of instant calculations needed to make a character fly, run or use a weapon. It will network with other computers and keep the environment running, along with sound effects and musical score. 

Social Media


We can hardly imagine our life without social networking websites like Facebook, Flickr, Pinterest, twitter, instagram, etc. With many businesses being interested in running their own social networking websites, becoming a social network developer is gaining traction. There are many programming languages that can be used to develop social networks.



Software has become a necessary component for the recording, mastering, and distribution of music. Code connects artists and audiences in ways unimaginable to the rock stars of yesteryear. The laptop—while lacking the stage presence of an electric guitar—has emerged as the hallmark tool for a new generation of music makers.



Coding is the future of fashion. Fashion and coding may seem like strange bedfellows, but actually, they have a lot in common. With coding and couture, creativity is key and the potential is as limitless as your passion. These are two industries both dedicated to producing new ideas for the future.3D printers are giving way to a new aesthetic in haute couture: algorithmic garments and accessories that proudly display their origins in tech. The result of code as couture is visually stunning: delicate architectures that couldn't be made by hand.





Coding is becoming a crucial part of research. Scientists commonly use languages such as Python and R to conduct and automate analyses, because in this way they can speed data crunching, increase reproducibility, protect data from accidental deletion or alteration and handle data sets that would overwhelm commercial applications. Researchers who use these languages can tackle questions that would be impractical to address if data were manipulated manually. Reconfiguring an analysis or revising graphs becomes quick and straightforward, and researchers can more easily build on their own or others' work.



Medical coders translate medical record documentation into the alphanumeric language of which healthcare data consists. Quality and accuracy in medical coding doesn’t just affect the revenue cycle—although that is an important part of the claims process—it also directly affects the quality of healthcare data. Whether you’re a coder or a nurse, physician, or hospital administrator, and whether you work at a payer or a medical school, we all want the same thing. We all want the health of our patients, communities, friends, and family to be better. By upholding high standards for medical coding, we have a direct influence on making that happen.
