It’s funny how everybody equates “learning to code” with “learning to code in web development,” as if web development is all there is to the programming world. Free Code Camp is all about web programming. There is a lot more to the IT industry, such as desktop, mobile, games, numerical computing, data science, machine learning, Internet of Things, etc.

Moreover, there are far more job postings for Java than for JavaScript (or any other programming language), according to And I promise you that most of those jobs are NOT web-related.

But if you look at the JavaScript job postings, I defy you to find more than a handful that aren’t web-related. I write about the public’s obsession with JavaScript and web programming here.
