Modern developers note, that they started coding quite early, even before they could drive. In general, the vast majority (75%) wrote their first lines of code before they turned 20. The UK and Australia have the youngest coders – in these countries, around 10% of developers started programming between 5 and 10 years old.
However, it’s never too late to code – there were some developers who began after 26 and are now senior or even higher-level developers.
¾ of all developers note that they are partially or fully self-taught. Moreover, they are constantly improving their skills, often through self-education. For this purpose, they use various tools. StackOverflow was mentioned by the majority of coders as the main platform for self-learning. It is followed by YouTube, and books close the TOP-3 instruments. However, this trend was mainly observed across millennials – the representatives of Generation X still prefer books over YouTube.
